Stress outlet for this Fall

As the days are shorter, its colder and your bundling up more how does one continue to get their stress out? Well, sitting on the couch, eating and doing nothing isn't a really a good option. You need to look at the bigger picture here, especially going into Fall- you still have like 6 month of coldness upon us. There are still so many things to do to get through. Look into some new hobbies, look up new hikes in your area, enjoy the amazing foliage, bike the scenery and enjoy your area. Hiking, biking, hit up the trails, or just get out in your own area. I live right by the ocean, which is pretty amazing in itself. I live less than 5 minutes away from a tourist area, which for 8 months of the year I get it to myself and my dog. Enjoy the piece and quiet, take walks, runs, you name it. And just allow my brain to wander for a bit, while getting some exercise.

Sure its cold, bundle your butt up. Remember the colder it is, the more your body has to work to keep warm, so you will be doing yourself a service by getting out there. So get out there, hat, mittens, scarf, grab your exercise partner and snuggle up with some coffee. Burn those calories. For me, this is a great addition to my regular gym routine. Gym gets boring, winters can be long and hard in the Northeast, and times like this can be something you need to do to get out there. You need to make sure you get your stress out no matter what your doing, so while everyone is huddled up feeling like they are going to hibernate, get out there, get it done and keep active, moving, loving life. Your summer body will thank you as well as your BRAIN! So once that day is at an end, go back inside locate a nice cuddle buddy and watch some Netflix. Sex can do as well, especially if you can keep your activity levels up and your heat down. ;-)

Keep those stress levels down, stay calm and you too can have a stress free Fall.
