What can we do so that the melancholy won’t affect us?

Fatigue, laziness, weakness, lack of good mood are frequent companions of fall. Some complain about the lack of sun and a constant desire to sleep, others about the lack of energy, cold and the need to eat everything. For everyone who is physically and emotionally going through fall and winter, we have prepared a cheat sheet. You can use it until spring, add something of your own to our items or remove something that does not suit you specifically.

A cozy sweater

A warm sweater is possible to wear in a million different ways without looking like a teenager. Do not be afraid to combine rough warm clothes with classic shoes or statement jewelry, and do not think that a warm sweater can be taken out of the closet only on weekends.

Eat seasonal products

What protects in the fall from blues, colds and increased hunger? Protein, rich in unsaturated fats, high-calorie (and hot) food – cereals, soups. In addition, vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish. Seasonal dampness, which hits the joints, is opposed by vegetable dishes and food from cereals – they remove moisture from the body. With dryness, which lingers in the lungs in autumn, dairy products effectively fight. What we definitely do not need during this period is flour, sweet, fatty – “fuel”, generous with empty calories.

Adapt your routine

It is more important than ever to stick to the daily routine: the routine ‘grounds’ the body, makes it more stable.

  • Wake up, go to bed, exercise, eat at the same time.
  • Keep your body warm, avoid hypothermia.
  • Do not skip the morning workout: it will warm up the body, prepare the digestive, nervous and endocrine systems for the upcoming day, and add vigor to you. Even 15 minutes will go to the piggy bank – the main thing is to choose the activity that you like, whether it’s running, yoga, the gym or just intensive walking.
  • Pamper yourself with a warming oil massage. If you can’t go to a salon, give yourself a self-massage with warm sesame oil before bed. Or at least spread some warm oil on your feet. It’s great to do this every day, you will feel joy and bliss from the warmth that fills you.

Get new emotions

The brain, despite all the blues, needs novelty. Study and try new things, sign up for courses, go to exhibitions/movies, meet friends in a warm company. Seek support from them and support them yourself. Create a pleasant atmosphere at home – you can decorate the house long before the New Year, buy a new blanket or bathrobe, light candles and have beautiful tea parties. Listen to your favorite music, meditate, sleep.
