How to Have a Fabulous Autumn

A

re you sorry to see summer end? That’s no surprise if you’ve fully enjoyed all that sun, surf and outdoor frolic. But there’s good news! Autumn can actually be one of the most amazing times of the year— especially when you consider the many highlights this colorful season has to offer. Finding something to appreciate in every phase of nature is a great way to cultivate happiness year round. These tips will help inspire you to create your best fall ever: Enjoy the great outdoors Slightly cooler temperatures make outdoor escapades refreshingly fun in the fall. You may enjoy strolling with kids, backpacking, or hiking even more when you can also observe the changing landscape—especially those vibrantly colored leaves. It’s a great opportunity to relax and enjoy all your surroundings. Bring your camera for some shots of nature’s glorious hues! Adjust your fitness 

If you love exercising outdoors, you can maintain that sleek summer body and stay energized—with a few adjustments. First off, consider adding some light layers as the weather cools. You should also factor in the shorter days, so you can continue to enjoy solo outdoor fitness in daylight hours. Walk the dog, romp with kids, rake leaves, it all counts. Exercise fights depression, boosts your immune system, combats stress, and helps you avoid holiday weight gain, so by all means, stay active! 4


Enjoy local activities Fall offers many events to amuse the whole family. Your local paper will usually provide an event schedule. Many small farms feature pumpkin patches, hay rides, apple picking, petting zoos, and more. Dig around and see what’s on tap in your area. Speaking of taps, beer lovers often enjoy Oktoberfest events, which are offered in most communities. As for farmer’s markets, many continue well into fall, depending on your region. Bake with autumn's bounty Do you love autumn desserts and treats? Apple, pumpkin, and pecan pies are especially beloved this season. You might like to expand your repertoire and share new delights with family and friends. How about Sticky Buns with Pecan Bourbon Caramel Goodness, Pecan Banana Bread, Free-Form ApplePear-Cranberry Tart, Apple-Studded Brown Butter Streusel Coffee Cake, Pumpkin Streusel Muffins, Apple Muffins, or Ultimate Caramel Apple Pie? Find these recipes and more here. Enjoy a healthy Halloween Halloween may be one of the most anticipated holidays in a child’s life, but it can also be a recipe for disaster. Sure, it’s a single day, but some kids hoard enough candy to last for months! Given the rise in childhood obesity, this sweet stockpile is a disconcerting prospect. How to combat this? First, let kids “sort” their bounty. Then, quietly remove all artificial items. For the next few days, allow kids one (or two) treats daily, but maintain control of the loot. You’ll probably find that they forget about it sooner than you think. Are you feeling newly inspired to enjoy one of the most vibrant, magical seasons of the year? Happy Autumn!

o you take vitamins? Many wellness-minded people realize that our diets can’t adequately cover us nutritionally on a daily basis. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, less than 9% of Americans consume the recommended 5-9 servings of fresh produce required for optimal health and disease prevention. The key is selecting a truly highquality, well-absorbed, multi-vitamin mineral formula. And needless to say, they’re not all created equal. That’s where Garden of Life comes in. By combining the best of nature and science, this unique company offers highly innovative solutions based on scientific advances in developing natural food products and dietary supplements. A unique new method producing RAW Food-Created Nutrients™ has now enabled Garden of Life to produce the revolutionary VITAMIN CODE® line.

Konjac is combined with nutrient-rich sea vegetables to create this utterly unique line of vegan seafood products. How about Vegan Shrimp, Vegan Prawns, Breaded Vegan Shrimp, Breaded Vegan Calamari, Breaded Vegan Fish Fillets, Vegan Crab Cakes, and Breaded Vegan Scallops? Serve with fresh lemon wedges and sink into pure delight.
