In this segment on WKMG channel 6 news, Dr. Brooke Stuart explores fall across cultures, addresses common seasonal disorders and shares tips on how to optimize your health within the season. For the full segment, you can check out the video above and for a brief overview, read on below!

Fall in the context of seasons as a whole: In traditional cultures, summer represents the height of light, full expression into fall, where we can begin to let go and slow down, allowing old patterns to fall away- not as much in FL- but it’s still in the air- whereas winter is more of a time to reflect and go within, the darkest months, and then into spring, which is all about growth and new life- a process reflective of the human experience

Fall in the context of the medical world: seasonal affective disorder, daylight savings time, nostalgia, coming down from the height of summer into the fall

Fall activities: fall festivals, pumpkin carving, apple picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving, such a fun, creative time to gather, cook and create new memories.

Fall health tips: take time for yourself, to gather in community, to reset before the holidays come about, eating in season- think pumpkins, apples, squash, turkey, pears, cinnamon- all very down to earth, grounding foods, healthy swaps, switching traditional dairy for almond milk, conventional sugar for monk fruit sweetener, stevia or xylitol

Fall as the last quarter of the year: a time where you can reconnect with your goals, reassess and finish the year with strength. There are just over 3 months until 2020! Which is such a statement year.
