How To Stay Balanced During Seasonal Change

Autumn’s shift to longer nights and shorter, cooler days can leave you feeling a little out of balance both physically and spiritually. With warmer weather ending, not only will you start to notice the leaves turning deep yellow, red and, brown, you may also notice a physical and emotional transition in yourself, too.

Autumn can affect everything from health and mood, to energy levels and our natural circadian rhythms. That’s why it’s essential to keep yourself grounded and in touch with your body and the nature that surrounds you.

Here are a few simple steps to help stay balanced in body, mind, and soul, during the change of the seasons.

Meditation & Stress Management

Why so busy? Leading a stressful life can take its toll on your health. Practicing mindfulness and meditation will help you slow down, take a breath and reflect on your day. Meditation is a tried and tested method to reduce stress, so by meditating you are actively improving your physical and mental well-being.


  • Try this basic meditation exercise to calm and focus your mind.
  • Who says you can’t give your body and your mind a workout at the same time? Find out how meditative any activity can actually be and give running meditation a try.
  • Simple deep breathing can help slow reduce anxiety and warm you up.  Try box breathing.  Inhale for a count of 5, hold for 2, exhale for 6, and hold for 2.  Repeat for as long as feels good.


Are you getting enough nutritious foods and eating to nourish your body? Or are you eating something because of other, more complex reasons? If so, don’t be too quick to judge yourself, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to pay more attention to what you use to nourish yourself. Eating seasonal, fresh and non-processed foods is always a good idea. Preferably organic and colorful fruits and veggies. Unprocessed foods that contain rich color contain lots of antioxidants and phytonutrients.


  • Don’t think of eating healthy as being on a diet. Think of it as a lifestyle meant to nourish your body and your soul. Try out different ways to make eating healthy, easy and more fun.
  • Speaking of which, in need of food for the soul? When you listen to your body, it will guide you toward the diet that is right for you.  Make sure to pay attention to appetite vs. cravings.
  • That said, focus on fruits and veggies that are plentiful in the fall.  You want to make sure you are buying fresh.  Fall is a great time to visit your local farmers market.  Take note of what they sell and look for those options in your favorite grocery when you can't make it to the market..


For some, the end of summer can seem like a sad time of year, but there's something about the cool, crisp air that can breathe some new life into your usual routine, especially when it comes exercise.  Fall is a great time to get outdoors for a walk, hike, or run.  Or to rake up all those leaves.  Animals suffer from changes in the seasons too, so if you have a dog, a crisp fall evening is great for a long walk.  Both you and your dog will be grateful you got out!

When the weather turns iffy, getting to the gym or working out indoors can options to keep you in motion.  Keep it interested and remember that even micromovements done regularly are an effective way to keep yourself in the flow.

Fall is also a great time to try something completely different!



Your body is busy restoring itself while you sleep. Getting enough quality sleep is extremely important, and as your body truly is the best pharmacy in the world, it’s best not disturb it during those hours of hard work.

Paying attention to our biological rhythms, including the seasonal rhythm and circadian rhythms helps you stay in sync and rest better.  Autumn doesn’t mean you have to stay inside all day; it’s actually better not to. Daylight positively affects your energy and serotonin levels. So, get your daily dose of light from the best source: the sun (even if you can’t see it directly).

And sometimes, it’s better to accept feeling a little tired. Embrace it, even. Tiredness is often a sign that we need rest, so why fight it? It’s a sign to give your body, mind, and soul what it needs to get you through this seasonal change.


  •  Keep yourself grounded by connecting to nature on a daily basis. Go offline and go outside more often: take a walk or exercise outdoors.  It's a great way to start the day.
  • Take little breaks throughout the day to get up, move around, and breathe deeply.
  • Use Lineage Daily Balance Performance & Recovery Cream coupled with Shift chocolates to relax and help your body heal and rejuvenate for the next day.
