Fall Health and Wellness with Sylvia Klinger
It’s time to welcome back the short days, crisp air, and colorful leaves of fall. Though the season is beautiful, it does require a bit more of an effort to keep yourself healthy and happy than summertime. When you factor in less daylight and the upcoming seasonal gatherings, it’s easy to feel like there isn’t enough time left in the day for ourselves. Licensed and registered dietitian and certified personal trainer, Sylvia Klinger covers everything from maintaining good nutrition and sleeping habits, to small steps you can take to keep your body healthy.
Some of Sylvia’s tips include:
Daily Dose: incorporate natural supplements that promote healthy aging and fuel the body’s energy “engines”
Fight Colds: chilly weather and cold/flu season go hand in hand. Make sure your medicine cabinet is stocked with essentials you’ll need to tackle the sniffles head on.
Eat Slowly: Try resting your fork between bites to help you eat more slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get the message that you are satisfied. Slowing down will help you avoid overeating.
Shop as a Family: Make grocery shopping a family outing! Everyone can learn to read the nutrition labels and about the nutrients in each food group and plan healthy meals together.
