The transition from summer to autumn can make many of us feel unmotivated, lacking energy and moody. That’s the autumn blues right there acting up to disturb your beautiful autumn months. Want to beat it? Here are a few easy tips to beat the autumn blues and have a happy, motivated autumn.
Get yourself out there in the nature. Spare some time daily to enjoy the beauty of the changing season and slowly embrace the change in you. Let the child in you out and see the world around you with wonder. Also, ensure you get enough sunlight.
Move Your Body
Make sure to do some warm-ups, cycling or other simple exercise routines to keep yourself healthy and active. Exercising daily stimulates neurotransmitters production that creates a feeling of well-being; it also increases self-confidence levels. With exercise, you can improve not only your health but also your positivity.
Have Healthy Meals
Eat healthy, warm food. Experiment with new dishes and have fun while exploring new recipes. Try to include a wide variety of foods in your diet. You can have plenty of colourful vegetables, legumes/beans and seasonal fruits. Also, remember to keep yourself hydrated. Eating on time can help you feel more energetic and will help you stay healthy.
Make Happy Memories
Even though you feel like cuddling in your bed and being alone, make time to be with your family and friends and make precious memories together with them.
Spending ample time with your loved ones and pets can help you cope with the seasonal transition. It helps us to prevent the urge from being a shut-in and moody.
This autumn, be more compassionate. Give others a helping hand or volunteer in an animal shelter. Kind gestures can not only make the receiver feel better but the giver too. It makes you feel happy, satisfied and also can improve your mental health.
Get Back to Healthy Sleep Patterns
Sleeping & waking up at a regular time can help you be more organised and well-rested. A minimum of 8 hrs of sleep is ideal for adults. Sleeping late at night or not getting adequate sleep can make you feel more tired and frustrated, making it hard to accept the autumn change.

Relax and enjoy doing things you love. Listen to some good music and maybe doing some slow dance or create some paintings or crafts. Make sure to engage yourself with something you love to do. You can also join classes to learn something of your interest.
