Fall temperatures, colors, and smells are here! While fall is undoubtedly enjoyable and beautiful, it also brings situations that can lead to illness or injury for you and your family. I put together this list of tips to help keep your family safe and healthy (pets included!) and even help you save money.
For me, the first tip is the most important. I tend to exercise like crazy in fall and winter because it’s dark and cold here in Wisconsin, and it’s not a busy time for me. This is when I’m in my best shape.1. Exercise each day. This becomes important as the days get darker and colder. Exercise can improve your mood because it helps release “feel good” chemicals. It’s recommended that adults exercise 2 hours and 30 minutes a week. The exercise should be of moderate aerobic intensity, including brisk walking, water aerobics, or riding a bike on flat ground. Exercise can help avoid dangerous slips and falls, as well as injuries that are caused by shoveling snow.

4. As the daylight disappears, stay focused and distraction free while driving. It’s getting darker earlier, and seeing people walking, biking, and riding motorcycles is more rigid. Always be on the lookout and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.
