Fall officially began a few weeks ago and the temperatures are finally starting to cool. Pumpkin spice is everywhere and Halloween costume planning has begun. These are all the tell-tale signs that autumn has arrived in earnest. Although many people think of spring and summer as the times of year to stay active and be healthy, fall is the ideal season to recommit to healthy choices.
The best part? There are so many fall activities that make a healthy lifestyle easy. Here are our top three tips for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and staying active.
Be Festive and Active
Get some friends together and visit a local corn maze or haunted house around Halloween. These fun and festive activities encourage healthy lifestyles and will keep you moving. Of course, autumn is the perfect time of year for apples too. Plus, they’re packed with antioxidants and flavonoids, which can reduce cholesterol.
Have Fun Outdoors
Our community boasts a number of fabulous outdoor amenities perfect for enjoying the cooler weather, including a basketball court, tennis courts, park, and playground. Get outside for a few games with friends and neighbors. You also could enjoy longer walks and be enveloped by our beautiful natural surroundings.

You don’t just have to stick to our community, though. The Roanoke area is beautiful and there are amazing parks for hiking and biking nearby. Spend time outdoors and marvel at nature’s colorful transformation this fall.
