Hello #GreenViters! Autumn is here! It is a season characterized by constant changes and surely you have realized the day is getting shorter, the sun is more difficult to find, temperatures are getting colder…
All these changes force our body to adapt and to warn our biorhythms that summer is over! We are already immersed in routines of work, study, physical activities, and for that reason many people feel a lack of energy, fatigue or sadness, all of them temporary symptoms, that will disappear when our body finishes the adaptation to the new season.
To help you overcome this difficult point of the year, here are some tips to have in mind:
First, rest, and, above all, sleep enough. Second, a physical moderate exercise is extremely important, use it to go outside and have a sunbath every time you can, which will control your serotonin levels. And, finally, control your eating habits.
These habits must include a good breakfast. Our body comes from a fast of about 8 or 10 hours, therefore, you need food that gives you energy and nutrients! Do not forget to eat something at mid-morning, to improve your physical and mental performance, to increase concentration and productivity. And your mood is also going to benefit from that mid-morning snack! We are talking about healthy food that does not contain refined oils and … even if the 12 o’clock coffee or a beer are a temptation, they usually aren’t the best way to feed yourself. You can take a lactic product (milk, cheese or yogurt) or vegetable milk instead, a fresh juice of fruits and vegetables or a piece of fruit that gives you vitamins. The noon is the ideal time to incorporate carbohydrates, proteins and other nutrients, which combined in a healthy way, help to maintain the daily rhythm and face the afternoon, where we tend to concentrate all kind of sports activities… And, for dinner, something light and healthy, that does not hinder the digestion, and, above all, nothing of exciting or saturated fats.
We remind you that, in GreenVita, we are opened to the public with a wide time slot to help you to get those nutritional habits that are so necessary, and we have a very extensive menu of salads, sautéed, grilled burgers, fish and baked gratin, that will delight your diet. We are waiting for you!
