Fall Health Goals

People typically make health goals right before the first of the year as part of their New Years’ resolutions. But there is another time of year when it is equally powerful, and that is in the fall season. There is something about fall that feels like a fresh start. During most years, your summer is over, you probably don’t have any vacations or trips planned for a while, and kids are back in school. Although this year is a bit unusual, it is still a good time to evaluate these goals.

This time of year is perfect to take a look at your healthy habits and lifestyle. You can determine if you want to make any changes to achieve your personal health goals.

Revisit Your Health Goals

A health reset in the fall is going to help you revisit any health goals you had at the beginning of the year. You probably created a lot of health goals when the year started. But you may have forgotten about them or left them behind when spring and summer began. Changes in our lives may have also impacted our goals.

Fall can feel like a new beginning, where you are bound to end your year right. Before the holidays begin, take the opportunity to look at your health goals and see what you want to change, or what new health goals you might have.

Start Your Resolutions Before the New Year

There is no reason you have to create goals only on January 1st! In fact, this is notorious for creating unrealistic health goals that only last a few days or weeks, then are forgotten about for the rest of the year. Seasonal goals can be a lot easier to accomplish.

Examine your goals as if you plan to finish them within 2-3 months. That way, they are much more realistic and within your reach, and don’t feel so overwhelming. If you know you want to have a resolution for the new year to lose 50 lbs, why not start now with small changes that you can continue in January as well?

Help Balance Out Holiday Treats

With the holidays coming up, you may want to get started on striking a healthy balance, so that you don’t over-indulge when those Christmas cookies come out. Easing into the holiday season by making smart changes now and still allowing some treats helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle. These changes may help you manage whether the tempting Halloween candy, Thanksgiving desserts, or other holiday treats.

So, Ready to Reset?

A fall health reset is about choosing small habits to implement into your life that are not just good for now, but you can continue throughout the remainder of the year.

    I’ve been such a slug with the pandemic going on. My excuse is that before the coronavirus, I had quite a bit of ankle pain. Now, the complete stay-at-home thing has rested the ankle to the point that I should try some walking. Thanks for the inspiration.

      I wasn’t exercising at first either — my transplant doctor suggested I lay low for a while. But I was gaining weight so I had to start back. I take my mask and dodge other people like we are playing dodgeball!

      Good luck with your ankle!
