Fall and Winter 2019 Lifestyle Essentials



The carefree summer period is officially over now and it’s time to get ready for colder, rainy weather. There’s a lot to catch up on for this transition period and you probably don’t have time to take a look at everything in great detail. For that reason, all the essentials have been prepared for you in the following paragraphs. 

Stay warm and away from calories

We let ourselves enjoy food during summer seasons as much as possible and don’t pay much attention to our calorie intake, but we have to draw some lines here. It’s the season of holidays and celebrations now and everyone eats a lot. Even so, you don’t have to eat unhealthy food full of calories. For breakfast, you can opt for protein-packed grains like oatmeal, buckwheat, or cornmeal. In this cold weather, everyone wants something that can warm their bodies up a bit. For lunch, try making some of one-pot stews or braises, like chicken and potato stew or chicken arrabbiata. You get a big meal and only one pot to wash! Soups can also be eaten for dinner, but make sure to prepare some veggies on the side. Lower-alcohol cocktails will help you maintain your diet and save you from putting on some extra calories. If you’re more of a wine person, how about some orange wine? It tastes and looks refreshing!

Micro travel plans are in this year

More and more people are opting for micro, weekend trips this year. Reason for that is pretty simple. To go on a micro trip, you don’t need days off from work. You don’t need to spend loads of money on hotels and it takes only a short burst of energy to get you through it. Even if you’re not staying at a hotel, you always have enough luggage storage as you’re not carrying a lot of stuff with you. These micro trips are great no matter how you approach them. You can take a late-night flight, sleep on the plane and save up on accommodation, get some food when you land in the morning and enjoy carefree sightseeing! This way you can have cost-effective trips and then go all out for the last day of the year. Consider going somewhere south, like Australia for example. More than a million people gather at the Sydney foreshore and have the best time of their lives. Don’t waste a moment, book your Sydney NYE tickets now and remember this New Year’s Eve for the rest of your life!

Go big with your clothes and let them keep you warm

The pieces worn on fashion weeks this fall were so vast and varied. So, even if you usually struggle with what to wear when it gets colder, you won’t have to worry about that this year. You can definitely find something for yourself and still put on an impactful look. Everything’s big and oversized this season. Wide-shouldered, slim-waist silhouettes will attract some looks on the streets, so get your statement belts ready. Longline coats and oversized capes will give you powerful look and keep you warm as well! For more formal looks, wear satin dresses in neon hues edged in feathers and you won’t have to worry about a single thing.

Consider taking shorter, but more efficient gym classes

Your routine is well-developed due to your work at this time of the year, so it’s not difficult to fit a few gym appointments in it. Aerial fitness schools and treadmills are really popular this year. Treadmill-centric studios are appearing behind every corner! The best thing this year is that everyone is opting for 45 minute long classes, so you don’t have to spend much time in the gym, and it also proved to be much more efficient! If you stay consistent, you will strengthen your immune system and ward off cough and cold.

Autumn and winter are the seasons when we have to care about our bodies the most. Follow these trends to stay up to date and also healthy.
