Healthy Hoboken Girl: 25 {Healthy} Habits for Fall

Written by:

With it finally starting to feel like fall {even though we have a week and a half of official summer left}, we thought it only appropriate to post Lynda of Healthy Hoboken Girl’s amazing + inspiring list of healthy {and fun!} things to do this fall. I don’t know about you, but after reading this I felt like putting on my flannel + leather boots and taking a stroll around town and crunching on leaves. Hoping this crisp weather lasts for a while!

With the chill in the air, it’s only fair to change up your habits a bit to match the weather. Here are a few of my favorite fall activities:

1. Eat more real food
2. Move your body
3. Drink water
4. Connect with your community/family/friends
5. Live within your means
6. Be of service to others
7. Eat more plants
8. Think of fruit as fast food
9. Find a little down time to relax
10. Journal
11. Read a good book
12. Throw a dinner party
13. Carve a pumpkin
14. Enjoy the cool weather and walk around the city
15. Connect with an old friend
16. Try a new class
17. Eat more apples
18. Practice patience and compassion
19. Drink more tea
20. Send someone a care package
21. Take care of yourself (schedule doctor/dental appointments)
