A wellness reset that allows time for self-care is good for body and mind.

As the seasons change, it’s a great time to do a wellness reset – for mind and body

Here are some steps to take to get into a healthy routine this fall:

  • Make a schedule that works for you and stick to it. This schedule includes work, family, and you time.
  • Hold yourself accountable: Choose realistic tasks or milestones (For example, spend an hour per week doing relaxation/meditation). You will feel like you are achieving small goals, forming positive habits.
  • Clean your space: Start fresh for the season by cleaning, organizing or making décor changes.
  • Stay social: Continue to see friends and family in an ongoing way that works for you. 
  • Be good to yourself: Mentally prepare for the seasonal changes by focusing on your strengths and adaptability.
  • Try new things: Maybe it is an art or exercise class -- whatever you find interesting, challenging and fun.
