An Autumn Reset

September 5, 2014
My, oh my, how time flies! Summer is officially over, Autumn is finally here… yay. It’s no surprise that it’s my favorite time of the year: the rich colors of autumn foliage, chilly air, new Apple releases, September issues, pumpkin spice lattes, and my birthday…but that’s not all. It’s also time for a positive change, time for self-improvement-to get healthier, to be happier, to get smarter, and to be the better version of yourself after all. It’s that time of the year when I need to hit that reset button, so I’ve put together a list of things I want to do more this autumn and, hopefully, onwards.
 
1. Eat mindfully and make healthy choices.
Eat fresh, nutritious food; more fruits&veggies. Be mindful of the way you eat, slow-down, listen to your body signals. Don’t mistake thirst for hunger.
2. Exercise 5 times a week.
I’ve been running on the treadmill everyday for 30 minutes, and I’m very proud of myself so far. I feel more energized and content.
3.Read a book everyday.
I try to carry a book (or iPad) with me wherever I go. At the moment, I’m reading ‘The Organized Mind” by Levitin.
4.Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
What would I do without Brita filters? I keep a 600 ml. bottle of water in the fridge, and I usually add a tea spoon of lemon juice for a bit of extra flavor.
5.Have a positive outlook on life.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” -Walt Whitman
Attitude is everything, ladies&gents.
 
Happy Autumn, everyone!
 Do you have any autumn resolutions?
