How to Transition From Summer to Fall Without Missing a Beat

The end of summer is here and we’re starting to look forward to cozy sweaters, bonfires, pumpkin spice lattes, and leaves falling from the trees. As sad as it can be to say goodbye to bikinis and beach vacations, the transition from summer to fall is an exciting one. The air gets crisper and we’re offered a fresh start in focusing on the healthy habits that we neglected in the heat of the summer. With all the change happening, there are some ways you can ease into the beauty of fall and say a sweet goodbye to the summer months.


Cleanse your body

Summer often brings a big dose of indulgences - drinks, desserts, and delicious summer meals are served up daily. As we head into fall, your body deserves (and needs) a reset. Treat yourself to a cleansing diet of foods that will help flush out any lingering toxins and get your body ready for the hearty foods of fall. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and chicken or fish. Your body takes longer to digest red meat so cutting back during your cleanse can be beneficial. Drinking lots and lots of water will help your body reset, too. Be sure to check with your doctor before doing any kind of cleanse.


Schedule in downtime

Summer and fall are busy times in their own unique ways. June through August are full of barbecues, vacations, and trips to the pool. Fall keeps us busy with back to school, the onset of the holiday season, and a scurry to accomplish all the goals we set back in January. It’s easy to go from busy to busier but doing too much can create a feeling of burnout and exhaustion. To keep your...

Picnics are almost always on summer adventure bucket lists so make it your goal. The memories created will last a lifetime and you’ll have some fresh images for your Instagram feed.


  • Go camping - or glamping

  • Whether you’re the type who likes to sleep under the stars or you’re a gal who prefers the comforts of home, camping is a must this summer. Grab your gear and head into the great outdoors. Don’t have the equipment you need to rough it? Glamp it up in your own backyard and spend some time staring up at the starry sky. Either way, don’t forget the marshmallows!

    3 Ways to Feel Body Confident this Summer

    Women around the globe have a love-hate relationship with summer. We’re dying to shed our winter coats and don attire that gives us a bit more breathing room but, at the same time, we’re dreading baring all in sleeveless tops, shorts, or a teeny tiny bikini. Here’s the thing: at freshie we know summer body confidence is possible - no matter which gorgeous body type you’re rocking. It’s a matter of getting into your body, out of your head (your biggest critic is you), and making the choice to love your body just the way it is. Here are 3 powerful ways to release the body demons and focus on having a confident, amazing summer.


    Truly experience each moment in your body


    How does the warm salt water of the ocean feel as it splashes on your skin? How did it feel to score those points in beach volleyball - taking your team to sweaty victory? Are you falling into bed each night with a sense of blissful exhaustion from living your life to the fullest? Paying attention to these feelings will help you focus on what’s really important - how you feel. When you’re focused on feeling good and enjoying yourself, your body confidence will soar, you’ll exude confidence and won’t have time to worry about if your thighs are rubbing together. Stay present. Exist in your body, not your head. When you look back on these moments, you’ll remember all the beautiful memories you created - not how worried you were about your body.


    Shut down the negative self-talk


    You truly are your own toughest critic and honey? Being down on your body doesn’t...

    freshie Fem Care's Aware Self-Care Guide

    If there’s one thing that conscious women know to be true, it’s that being healthy is key to living your best life. You’ve got a busy career, a social life that keeps you on your toes, and goals that you’re working towards on the daily. You know that carving out quality time for yourself, while important, can be hard to do. It’s not all about squeezing in sunrise yoga sessions and 3-day juice cleanses, though. From the moment you wake up and hop in the shower to the second that your head hits the pillow after a night out with friends, you have an opportunity to practice self-care by being mindful about what you put in - and on - your body. While choosing healthier options for what you put in your body may seem a bit more intuitive (donut - not healthy, organic salad, healthy), being smart about what you’re putting on it can be trickier. One of the best ways to practice healthy, aware self-care is by being familiar with the ingredients in products you use and understanding how they affect your body and your health.

    What’s in the bottle?

    Understanding what a package means when it says “paraben free” or when the ingredients list contains sulfate can help you make smart buying decisions and avoid chemicals that are damaging to your health. Educating yourself about the various components that make up your favorite beauty and personal care products can make your choices a lot simpler.

    Parabens

    Methyl, ethyl, propyl, and isobutyl parabens are preservatives that are commonly found in make up, shampoo and conditioner, and lotions. This harmful chemical is a potential endocrine disruptor. It also mimics the hormone estrogen and can cause the growth of breast tumors. This is one ingredient you’re going to want to...
