GAL APPROVED! Six Ways To Beat The Fall Blues (No. 3 Is Tasty!)By The DivaGals | October 6, 2017 | Gal Approved
Divas! Fall is almost upon us, and while we love the autumn colors and the season’s new looks, the change in temperature can sometimes get us down. The “fall blues” are characterized by mild depression, lack of motivation and a low energy that many people experience during this seasonal change, according to Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., an Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine, anti-aging medicine and chelation therapy. A leader in the field of stem cell therapy in the U.S., Dr. Calapai has six suggestions to get your happy back on track.
VITAMINS. Multivitamins are always a great substitution for nutrients you may be lacking.
EXERCISE. Contrary to popular belief, exercise actually gives you energy. Maintaining a weekly workout regimen is a great way to feel better and reap the benefits that come with staying active. Don’t want to join a gym? Try POP!N, a new app that allows you to buy gym time by the minute.
JUICING. Vegetable juicing can replace heavier meals we tend to seek out during the cooler months. Need some inspiration? Pick up one of our fave books, Clean Green Drinks by celebrity chef Candice Kumai for inspiration.
SUNLIGHT. Due to shorter days and less sunlight, you may begin to lack vitamin D, which increases melatonin and fatigue. Sunlight is one of the best sources of vitamin D, so get it as much as possible.
PROTEIN. A little protein goes a long way in keeping your body healthy. Fish, turkey and chicken are great sources of protein, which build up your body’s organs such as the brain, heart, liver, kidney, skin and muscles.
WATER. Staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to stay alert and energized.
