Daylight savings is coming to an end! On November 6th, Fall Back into bed for an extra hour of sleep. Without daylight savings, the days might start to feel shorter and more overwhelming. And with the holiday season quickly approaching, it's a great time to check in with your home and your health.
Around the holidays, our homes start seeing more and more people coming in and out of them. That means that keeping a tidy home has to be at the top of your to do list. Unexpected appearances from neighbors and friends can feel daunting, but having a freshly cleaned space can relieve much of your holiday stress.
Make the Most of Your Time
But where to begin? Starting small can keep the stress to a minimum as the holidays approach. And with less time in the day, you'll want to make the most of what you've got. Begin with some easy tasks: dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping. Developing these into a weekly habit will help you keep up with your home, and give you more time to tackle the harder stuff. When daylight savings comes to an end, it's important to use your time productively. It's easy to fall into a slump as the weather cools and the sun doesn't seem as bright. Don't let it stop you from keeping up with your regular schedule! In order to ensure that you use your time wisely, set a 15-minute timer to designate uninterrupted time to cleaning. Doing this everyday before the holidays will help you build a productive habit, as well as decrease your stress around having a tidy home for your guests.
Something to keep in mind around the fall time change is that the cold and flu season is on its way. This is all the more reason to make sure you are regularly cleaning your home. Disinfecting common surfaces and being mindful of washing your hands can help keep you from getting sick right before the holidays.
It's also important to keep up with sleep. Even though the weather outside is dropping, making sure that you spend 20-30 minutes outdoors in natural light can help keep your sleep cycle working properly. Sleep is key to keeping your body healthy and strong so that you can be able to fight off any cold or flu that comes your way.
Exercise might seem more difficult in the fall and winter. And with less daylight it might also feel limited; but thanks to the growing popularity of at-home workouts, you can keep up your fitness from home. Taking a walk during the day outdoors is great, but if you feel like you can't bear the cold, opt for working out at home to help keep your muscles (and your immune system) strong.
