Happy Fall..altho’ Mother Nature seems somewhat confused herself as to what is going on in her world.
As Fall settles in, we really need to be aware of our own self-care. If the media is to be believed, this is Flu and cold season.
Well…. BAD NEWS.
There is actually no such a thing as a Flu/cold season except in the minds of Big Pharma.
What there really is, is…
- A lack of adequate hydration because we don’t feel thirsty.
- A lack of exercise for many reasons related to a lack of priority….Exercise is vital and it needs to be prioritized and not be the first thing to go when the schedule gets funky. If it means an early start to your day than there are no excuses needed later on.
- A lack of fresh air….bundle up and get out for a walk– it will do you good…remember sitting is the new smoking!!
- A lack of adequate rest.
- A lack of fresh fruit and veggies in the diet. I make 3-5 salads in a bottle/tupperware container on Sunday evening (ask me if you want details) for the week, especially to eat them after my lunch-time training session…No excuses and I save myself the temptation of eating something I will only regret. Remember living raw food does not come thru’ a drive thru window!
Stay safe…see you on the table, under the barbells, on the yoga mat or around town!
