1. Get Outside – Fall can be a treat for the senses: the crisp air, apple picking, pumpkin carving, a gorgeous canopy of fall foliage, and the crunch of leaves underfoot. These months are a great time to exercise outdoors and enjoy cooler temperatures. “Walking, hiking and cycling are all awesome in the fall,” says Todd Durkin, MS, fitness coach and owner of Fitness Quest 10 in San Diego, Calif.
2.  Eat Autumn Foods – To avoid piling on extra pounds, eat plenty of apples, pumpkins and hearty greens such as Brussels sprouts that are all in season in the fall. Fruits and vegetables with dark, rich colors, such as kale and pomegranate are also this fall’s go-to foods, as they are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.
3.  Rest More – after a change from the summer to fall schedule, with getting kids back to school and the cooler weather, plan time for naps or rest during the day to build your immune system and to maintain a positive attitude.  Set your alarm later to take advantage of the darker mornings.
4.  Keep in Touch – reconnect with friends that you haven’t seen all summer long as a way to maintain friendships and avoid feeling down from the darker days.
