There’s a natural rhythm to the year that sees many people being full of energy and happiness during summertime but dropping and suffering from almost depression-like symptoms in the winter. Commonly known as the Winter Blues, and quite often laughed off by those who have never experienced it, there’s actually scientific evidence that this condition exists.
October, the month where we can feel winter making it’s presence known – the evenings and mornings are cold and the nights have drawn in. This change of season is when our immune systems are put to the test coping with the fluctuating temperature and conditions, so head colds, catarrhal conditions, as well as ear and throat problems are common.
When autumn rolls around it signals a change of pace, a time to reflect, and prepare yourself for winter. You’ll find that your habits change as the season shifts, and there’s often a change of mood too.
Despite this apparent slowing down, autumn is a season that is full of vibrance and excitement. Here are a few autumn foods that can pass a little bit of that vibrance on to you.
As the pages on the calendar change, the weather changes too. As summer turns to autumn, the daylight hours get shorter and the weather gets a little cooler.
For many people, autumn is their favourite time of year. Nothing is more fun than taking a walk through fallen leaves, thinking of pumpkin spice lattes, and looking forward to snuggling up nice and warm at home.
