Stay Energized during the Shorter Daytime Hours

We’ve already reached the time of year that most of us are waking up when its still dark/dim outside, and it seems to already be dark when its barely suppertime.  Yes, this reality is inevitable and its part of nature’s beauty and organization.  But gee! it doesn’t always feel like that!  Many of us feel the effects of the seasonal change as a generally low mood, lack of energy and motivation.  The good news is that we can do something about it!

The easiest and most effective way to raise your energy is – get outdoors!  Make a commitment to get outside for at least 25 minutes a day (or at least every other day) aside from dashes from car to building and vice versa. There is actually a lot of light out there!  And it really will change your mood.  Outdoors, you are free of the confinements and energetic obstructions of the indoors, your energy field can breath (it really is big, you know), and your field can realign to the ebbs and flows of nature.  If you can combine your outing with a quiet walk, you get the bonus of clearing your mind and stress relief. Yay!
(Extra tip: Sometimes, if I’m having an extra busy day and I have to make a long phone call, I walk outside at the same time…its better than nothing!)

Other tips for maintaining a high vibration during the fall are:

  • Keep up with your regular exercise.  If you don’t feel like that high-powered workout, opt for a gentle yoga routine, whatever you do, stay in tune with your body and get it moving.
  • Watch your diet.  Check that you aren’t sinking into the sugar-ruts of the cold season.  Sweets give us that immediate satisfaction, but we all know it doesn’t last long.  That said, of course we deserve treats once in a while 🙂
  • Bring the light inside.  Check the lighting in your home and see how it makes you feel.  Are the areas you live in most lit appropriately?  Does it feel gloomy? Dull? Ambient? Fun?  Change it up and consider having a fun coloured string of lights INSIDE.  Light a candle when you are sitting at the dinner table.  These little touches go a long way.

I hope these tips make a positive difference in your experience.  What else do you do to stay bright during the fall?  Comment below.
