The Right Care. Right Now.

How Can I Stay Healthy This Fall?

While the first official day of fall might not be until mid-September, that doesn't mean you can't get a jumpstart on building healthy habits this fall season.

Therefore, our team at AFC Urgent Care Bronx Webster Ave. wants to give you a few ideas on how you can get started creating a healthy lifestyle and daily habits alongside receiving a regular flu shot.

Why Is Exercise So Important in the Fall?

The truth is exercise is important 365 days a year. However, when the colder weather moves in, we tend to not get out and move as much as we do over the warmer, summer months.

Therefore, it is important that we make more of an effort during the fall and winter season so that we don't fall behind on our fitness goals.

Good Exercises for Fall

  • Kayaking
  • Trail running
  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Outdoor bootcamp

How Can I Start Making Sure I Get Vitamin D?

As the temperatures begin to fall, we tend to get less of our intake of vitamin D from the sun.

That said, because vitamin D is extremely important to our immune system, it is important to find other ways we can increase our vitamin D intake, such as with the foods we eat.

Good Food Sources of Vitamin D

  • Salmon
  • Eggs
  • Yolk
  • Milk
  • Canned tuna
