Fight the Fall Rut

Tips for staying up when the temperature goes down

As temperatures drop and the days grow shorter and darker, the weather has its way of slowing us down and yet, there’s so much more to do! To make the cool weather transition easier, take some time to organize your life and put things in place that will help you maintain your healthy glow from the summer months all year long. These small, but significant changes will help you maintain your mood.
 
Stay Healthy
Getting sick is one of the most time consuming beauty bummers ever. Make hand sanitizer a constant companion--in your desk drawer, in your bag, in your car, everywhere! Get plenty of rest as the weather changes, especially if your body is thrown off by the time change. Keep the heat down (around 66° F) in your bedroom and you’ll sleep better and stay healthier. Pile on cozy quilts and comforters for warmth.  Move your workout inside when the weather calls for it. Not only will you stay in shape, but exercise is the best way to keep your mood happy and positive throughout the season.
 
Stay Organized
Clutter can stress you out. When the weather changes, pick a day to go through your closet and make sure that the things you need for fall are clean and ready to wear When you clean house be sure to pay attention to what you do and don’t need. Get rid of anything you’re over from last fall season to make space for what you love now. Plus, you can make a list of new must-have fall items to shop for.
 
Stay Moisturized
It’s easy to put off self-care when you’re busy and it’s cold out. Besides, you’re covered up most of the time anyway, right? Wrong! Your skin and hair need even more TLC when the air gets colder and dryer. Up the moisture especially for your face and hands to keep skin from getting tight and uncomfortable. You can work out a monthly maintenance schedule for DIY spa nights and give yourself a mani, a pedi and a quick facial to stay refreshed. You’ll look your best every day, no matter how chilly it gets!
