How To Prep For Fall: 5 Tips For A Seamless Transition

5 Ways To Usher In Fall

The end of summer means a lot of things: back to school shopping (no matter how long you’ve been out of school!), dwindling beach days, and, well, the need to buckle down and get your life back in order.

While we’re all about bringing the summer vibe into the rest of the year (think: prioritizing time with family and friends, relaxation, and self-care), the end of summer is a great time to set goals, get ahead on what you want to accomplish for the year ahead, and get all your must-dos out of the way.

Here’s how to get started this fall…

1.  Make your doctor’s appointments.

Sure, a yearly physical with your primary care physical is a good idea, but don’t forget about scheduling appointments with your dermatologist to look at your moles post-summer sun exposure, your OB/GYN for your yearly mammogram, and your dentist for a cleaning. You don’t need to actually go to see all these doctors right away, but just getting them on the calendar for some point in the next 6 months will ensure you actually make it in.

2.  Refresh your beauty routine.

As the seasons start to change, it’s important to reevaluate your beauty routine. Toss expired makeup and skin care products, up the ante on your moisturizers as the temperatures start to drop, and pick up new face makeup to match your ever-evolving skin tone.

3.  Prioritize self-care.

Whether it’s setting your alarm 20 minutes earlier to meditate or making a standing monthly facial or massage appointment, find a way to honor yourself this fall and commit to doing so! Trust us: you’ll be grateful you did!

4.  Get organized.

Buy a new planner (sure, it may not be January yet, but there’s something about the end of summer and beginning of fall that feels more like the end of the year anyway!), clean out your closet, or organize your kitchen. Nothing says “I’m prepared” more than a clean slate!

5.  Set a goal… and get started!

Whether it’s a fitness plan or finally fixing your teeth, it’s time you get started! Fitness your goal? Schedule your workouts in your calendar! Find friends to join (it will make it more fun and more likely to happen!) and experiment until you find an exercise you actually love (trust us: there is something for everyone!).

Want a straighter, more beautiful smile? Talk to your doctor about Invisalign® clear aligners. I used the virtually invisible and removable aligners to straighten my teeth 4 years ago and I couldn’t have been happier with the results! Did you know that the Invisalign brand pioneered the idea of moving teeth with plastic 20 years ago and has followed it up with constant innovation ever since? No other teeth straightening options comes close. I also loved that hardly anyone even knew I was in treatment. My smile was perfected and now I’m happier not merely because I love my smile, but also because smiling more actually makes you happier! It’s a win-win!
