Get through the fall fit

The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are falling and at the same time the risk of a cold increases in autumn. The weather is usually wet and cold and less time is spent outdoors in the fresh air. The absorption of vitamin D is restricted and a cloudy mood is usually the result. We'll show you which tips and tricks you can use to not only start the fall fit, but also get you through the entire cooler season full of energy.

6 tips for a healthy autumn with a good mood

Healthy eating

In no other season is the right, healthy diet as important for health as in autumn. It is advisable to buy regional foods that are harvested at the current time. A nutrient-rich diet supports

our defenses. That's why green vegetables, cabbage, beetroot, legumes and potatoes should often be on the menu in autumn. Foods rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, are also ideal for preventing colds. But hazelnuts, walnuts or nutmeg – known as “trail mix” – also provide an energy boost. With the right diet in autumn, you not only promote health, but also general well-being and a positive attitude.

Our tip: Season with ginger more often or drink it as a tea. Ginger is rich in gingerol, which has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Drink a lot

In order not to fall into a gloomy mood in autumn, it is important to drink plenty and, above all, at regular intervals. The heating causes the air to be too dry at home and in the office. To keep the bronchi moist, but also to remove germs and bacteria from the body, you should drink between 1.5 and two liters of fluid every day. Mineral water, tap water, tea and fruit spritzers are ideal for this.

Exercise in the fresh air

No matter what the weather – exercise or a walk in nature is good for the immune system and gets your circulation going. But only if sport and exercise

Stay moderate and challenge your body, but don't stress it. Our tip: exercise in the forest. The colors of the leaves and the unique scent make you want to do more activities. Do you hate being outdoors when the weather is bad? With the right clothing and a little routine, this is easy.

Get good and enough sleep

In autumn the body is put to stress tests. It is therefore particularly important to allow yourself to rest more often and to get enough sleep. What is important is a regular sleep rhythm and a nightly sleep duration of ideally 7 to 9 hours.

In order to stimulate the production of melatonin, which is significantly involved in the regulation of the human sleep-wake rhythm, it is best to avoid contact with sources of blue light (screens) 1-2 hours before sleeping.< /p>

Think positive

Negative thoughts occur easily in autumn and are not always easy to suppress due to the often bad weather and the shorter days. Moping around, being in a bad mood and waiting for next summer is not the solution. Instead, you should keep yourself positive and provide yourself with motivation. Health is promoted when you see the good things about the cooler season: Finally doing what wasn't always possible in the summer because it was just too hot outside. An evening at the cinema, a relaxing visit to the spa, shopping together or making your apartment nice and cozy - the possibilities are extensive!
