Tips for a Healthy Fall

Fall is officially here and the new season brings with it the opportunity to eat better, sleep more soundly, get more exercise, clear your mind and more. Here’s how to take advantage of the many ways autumn can aid in your overall health and recovery. 

Take a trip to the farmer’s market. Tis the season of pumpkin spice everything – and don’t forget apples, sweet potatoes, squash and figs. These autumn delicacies are rich in essential vitamins to help restore your body and mind from the damage of alcohol or substance abuse. 

Open those windows. There’s nothing like fresh autumn air to clear the head clutter and help you get more Zzzs. In fact, the ideal temperature for sleeping is between 60 and 68 degrees F, according to the National Sleep Foundation. 

Set some goals. Even if you’ve been out of school for sometime, fall can still feel like a season of new beginnings. Take advantage of this time to set or refine your recovery goals. Be sure to make your goals SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely – and don’t forget to share them with your addiction therapist or loved one. 

Spend some times outdoors. Cooler temperatures provide the perfect setting for a morning stroll, invigorating jog, or scenic hike. Added bonus: The sunshine can help boost vitamin D levels, making you happier and better able to concentrate on your recovery efforts. 

Get back to nature. Apple and pumpkin picking are fun fall activities and searching for that perfect fruit may just give you a new appreciation of whole, fresh, unadulterated food. No processing, no conveyor belts, no plastic packaging.
