There are many ways you can start caring of yourself in. Some people start to change their lives overnight. Others prepare for that gradually. Sometimes on their own, sometimes as a whole family, or a group of friends. And they wait for the right moment to start. For most people, such a moment is the New Year. But you do not have to wait that long. A great idea would be to start, for instance in the fall.
An opportunity to ‘start afresh’
After all, September is the month we have been associating with something new from an early age. That is when school year starts, many new projects begin, and many companies prepare to introduce new product lines or services. Nothing prevents you from starting to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. It can be a completely new sport which you have not tried before. Then, we would feel even more like students that wander inside the school walls to acquire new knowledge and skills.
Taking a break from the heat
The weather in fall can turn out to be our great ally. Especially if you plan to work out outdoors. Naturally, it is going to be colder and it can rain more often. But everyone who has tried running in 30°C heat even once can confirm that running in fall is much more pleasant. Changing weather conditions can also help us harden our body. So, we will not only be fitter but also healthier. There is also room for testing how motivated we are – whether in the moment when it is raining outside, we will put ourselves together and go running, to the gym, or to the swimming pool.
No more holiday schedules
Many gyms, fitness clubs, or swimming pools also take a summer vacation. Timetables change, instructors go on a vacation, and many places decide to renovate and rebuild. The end of summer is the moment to get back to business – with a wider offer of exercises and lessons, and greater availability. We also, however, have to reckon with the fact that more people will visit such places, because probably not only we will come up with the idea to start doing some sport.
We have an extra energy boost
The closer the winter, the shorter the days are going to get, and the faster it is going to get dark. Many people admit that it is in fall they feel a strong setback in form, and that their mood is worse. Even though the exercises will initially require more effort put into them, their will help improve our well-being. Rightly chosen exercises or a sport that we enjoy? Sounds like a big shot of endorphins.
Better time management
If we have not introduced regular exercising to our lives so far, mainly because of the excuse that we do not have enough time, the fall is also the time to test how we will deal with shorter days . There is a reason why it is said that if someone has too little time, then they should… get onto something new. Because, after all, we can organize our day in such a way so we can manage to do everything. And with the energy we will gain from the exercises, it will be much easier.
