Feeling slugglish? 5 tips for staying healthy this Aututmn

As we slowly move into Autumn and say goodbye to the warmth of summer, now is the perfect time to start preparing our bodies for the cooler months ahead.

5 Tips for staying healthy this Autumn
  1. Eat Seasonally- 

    Not only is food at it’s freshest when it’s seasonal, but most importantly you’re eating foods that are going to support and nourish your body. Think about your current diet, where could you add some more warming, seasonal foods? How about swapping your morning green smoothie for some oats or quinoa porridge? Or cooking up a slow cooked casserole, soup or bowl of steamed leafy veggies rich is flavonoids, vitamins and minerals. Your local farmers markets are the best place to go for seasonal produce!

  1. Keep up your exercise

    The cooler months aren’t an excuse to let your health and wellness goals fall away. Now’s the time to invest in some warmer active wear and keep yourself moving. Use the change in seasons as an opportunity to try out a new Pilates class or a heated yoga session. Better yet grab your bestie and hit the pavement for a long walk. Remember summer bodies are made in Winter!

  1. Boost your immunity – 

    Give your immune system a supercharged boost by loading up on fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly those high in Vitamin C like leafy greens and citrus. Try adding some lemon, grated ginger and turmeric to your warm water for an added immunity boost.

  1. Give your skin some love –

    Avoid the dreaded ‘dry winter skin’ by exfoliating daily using a dry body brush before jumping into the shower. Once dry, give yourself a full body massage using a nourishing oil like coconut or sesame and add in a few drop of your favourite essential oil. Once a week, try an invigorating body scrub, you can make one yourself here.

  1. Indulge in your self-care routine-

    Set aside time each week to do something that nourishes your soul. Maybe it’s going for a facial or massage, spending time in the kitchen cooking up delicious meals for the week or soaking in a warm epsom salt bath. Whatever it is, do something nurturing for you.


Just as the seasons change, so too do our nourishing routines. Use this time to reflect on your health and wellness goals and make small changes so that you continue to nourish yourself throughout the cooler months and emerge in Spring feeling vibrant, glowing and bursting with energy.
