Are You Ready to Fall in Love with Yourself?
Fall is here! Say hello to pumpkin spice lattes, cable-knit sweaters, colorful leaves, and more autumnal glories. Whether you love going out for a football game or staying in to read a good book, there's no arguing that the fall season is special.
That said, this time of year is also when school resumes, temperatures drop, and immune complications emerge. Self-care is a vital habit year-round, but you may need some extra self-love during the fall.
Most people know by now (yay, 2021) that self-care is proven to promote overall health and well-being. That's because stress is a perilous state to be in, especially if you continually experience stress over an extended period. For example, you may get headaches, back pain, or fatigue. More severe side-effects include mood difficulties and more!
If you find yourself struggling this time of year, it's time to recommit yourself to self-care. Keep reading for tips for falling in love with yourself this season.
Treat Your Body
Whole-body self-care is a mouthful, and yet it's easier said than done. You know to eat healthily and stay active, but is that enough? If you are looking for an extra whole-body boost this fall, we recommend you add one more treat to your weekly meal plan: golden lattes.
You may know this beverage by its other name, turmeric milk. But we think "golden latte" sounds much cozier and more autumnal. No matter what you call it, the health benefits remain the same. They are a great source of these nutritional treasures:
When served warm, golden lattes are both sweet and savory. Plus, they are marvelously unique in flavor and delicious. Add a dash of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and the result is perfect for fall.
Here is a list of the essential ingredients needed for a golden latte. Make sure to play around with your favorite fall spices to find the perfect flavor combination:
- 2 cups of almond or coconut milk
- ½ teaspoons of dried turmeric
- 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup
You are going to love starting your morning with a warm golden latte. That said, we do recommend that you keep it to one drink per day. That way, you won't risk going over the recommended daily intake of curcumin.
Treat Your Mind
After you've taken care of your body, do not forget your mind. A healthy and happy mind will allow you to manage stress and increase energy levels.
There are many ways to take care of your mental health. Staying connected to friends, focusing on positivity, and practicing gratitude are all excellent first steps. For optimal mental self-care, we also recommend that you consider your serotonin levels.
Low serotonin levels lead to many unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Lack of appetite*
- Sleep changes*
- Low mood*
If you want to boost your mood, increase your serotonin. You can do this in several ways. To start, you can practice more aerobic exercise, like going on a fall hike. Or, simply try to spend 15 minutes outside each day. You could even schedule a massage. All of these activities are proven to boost serotonin levels naturally.
To kickstart your body's production of serotonin this fall, we recommend a daily supplement, such as PureBalance™ Serotonin. This neurotransmitter is designed to help you relax, sleep, and achieve a positive mood.
Treat Your Skin
Fall brings with it colder and drier air. As a result, you could experience chapped lips, cracked knuckles, and wind-burnt cheeks these next few months.
To protect your skin this time of year, you should drink more water and take the supplement JuvecolⓇ. Staying hydrated will help your skin withstand fall's changing weather. JuvecolⓇ, on the other hand, will provide you with these health benefits:
- Firmer skin*
- Fewer wrinkles*
- Reduced pore size*
- Diminished blotchiness*
JuvecolⓇ is a complete collagen product. In other words, it contains collagen as well as hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans. A daily supplement will have you feeling the results in as little as two weeks.
Treat Your Sleep
Nobody is happy missing out on sleep. That's because sufficient sleep allows your body to perform many necessary functions. Your emotional state, brain function, and physical health are all impacted by the amount and quality of your sleep.
If you are starting school or anticipating a big project at work, your sleep quality may take a nose-dive. To get back on track so you can enjoy the best of fall's festivities, consider a melatonin supplement.
For sleep support, we recommend Melatonin-SR™, a sustained-release supplement. It is proven to help people fall asleep and, more importantly, stay asleep. Unlike many similar supplements, Melatonin-SR delivers sustained release over seven hours. That is more than double the amount of time offered by other supplements.
Treat Your Immune System
The changing temperatures can affect your immune system and leave you vulnerable to immune complications. And a weak immune response won't just lead to more frequent issues. It can increase the severity of your symptoms as well.
Keep an eye out for symptoms of a weak immune system. They include everything from fatigue to gas and bloating. If you notice any of these signs or simply want to stay healthy this time of year, it's a good time to start taking the following supplements:
Lean on Quality of Life
