AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Life is full of seasons, non-more effecting then the natural seasons, and as autumn approaches those who live in regions where they experience traditional seasons know that winter, good and bad, is just around the corner.

The summer weather is winding down, the temperature is dropping and even the best of us can get a little down. The “fall blues” characterized by mild depression, lack of motivation, and low energy, are creeping up and leaving many wondering what can be done.

 

Luckily, there’s a lot you can do to prevent the overwhelming feeling of fatigue and solutions to get yourself back to normal!

Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., an Osteopathic Physician board certified in family medicine, anti-aging medicine and chelation therapy explains, lack of sunlight, diet change and a decrease in exercise are the main reasons people fall victim to this phenomenon.


The Low Down on Caffeine Overdose – Hype, Scare Tactic or Possibility


Here are a few basic recommendations from Dr. Calapai that are easy to implement into one’s daily life to beat the blues:

1.     Get 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.

2.     Take your vitamins: Multivitamins are always a great substitution for nutrients you may be lacking.

3.     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.

4.     Vegetable juicing: This can replace heavier meals people tend to gravitate to, during the cooler months.

5.     Don’t forget protein: 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. 

6.     Drink fluids: Staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to stay alert and energized.
