Part of the fun of summer is slipping up a bit—having a few too many gelatos, sipping cocktails by the pool, dancing till dawn—but now it’s time to shift gears and get back into busy mode for fall. Whether it’s reaching new goals at the gym or making important moves at work, take a “less is more” approach with these easy tips.
Clean Up Your Routine
Don’t let a chilled-out summer attitude turn into bad habits. Outline what you want to change this season and set a regimen to ease back into fall. If you’ve been slack about working out, try signing up with a trainer or making a pact with a friend to keep each other motivated.
Make the Most of Energy
Lazy summer days are great for resetting, but once you’ve had your fill of downtime, use this newfound energy to take on a new challenge or project like cleaning out your closets, taking an advanced fitness class, or starting a continuing ed program.
Think Ahead About Nutrition
A busier fall schedule often comes with unexpected setbacks, like late meetings. Be prepared when hunger strikes by stashing a few LÃƒâ€žRABARs in your desk drawer, gym bag, and purse. The gluten-free blend of nuts and unsweetened fruit delivers nutrition when you need it. Made with just a few simple ingredients like fruit, nuts, and spices, LÃƒâ€žRABAR® is real food made for real, active people. Like our delicious Cherry Pie flavor, made with only dates, almonds, and unsweetened cherries, or Cashew Cookie, made with just cashews and dates!
Schedule in Sleep
Staying out late can throw off your sleep schedule creating almost a seasonal jet-lag. Instead of relying on the snooze button, start going to bed at the same time each night aiming for seven to eight hours of sleep to get your body clock back in sync.
Take Stock of Your Fitness Gear
When was the last time you got a new bike helmet? Are the treads on your sneakers looking a little worn-out after an activity-packed summer? Use the change of seasons as a reminder to update and swap out old gear to prevent sports-related injuries.
