In Ayurveda, autumn is considered a "Vata" time of year, where we need to keep warm, grounded, get plenty of nourishment and stay hydrated.
*Take regular hot baths with aromatherapy bath salts that soothe your muscles and joints
*Keep your joints supple and your body grounded with gentle exercises like swimming, walking or yoga
*If your skin is extra dry, use extra-nourishing facial oils or creams
*Stay hydrated with warming, hot drinks like ginger or turmeric tea
*Adapt your diet to include plenty of warm foods like soups and stews with root vegetables. Also, remember to keep on eating your fruits for your Vitamin C protection against seasonal infections.
*Take supplements such as Vitamin D, Echinacea
*Consider getting a SAD lamp if you suffer from seasonal depression and/or low energy
