Fall is the season for spending time at the orchard or taking part in some Halloween fun with the family while savouring pumpkin spice beverages. This wonderful season is the perfect opportunity to enjoy activities that can increase your well-being. Here are four ways to fully embrace autumn.

Take part in an online conference to boost your resilience

Richard Poulin was operated at the Montreal Heart Institute following a nearly fatal heart attack at the age of 33. This event led him to make many lifestyle changes. Now as president of Zen Leader & Cie, he wants to promote cardiovascular health and has organized a virtual conference to raise funds for the Foundation.

The conference will take place on November 2 and will address strategies for boosting your resilience. It will also include attendance prizes and a networking session. Circle the date on your calendar!

Get moving while admiring fall foliage

As the temperatures dip, it can be hard to remain motivated to work out. But you shouldn’t neglect exercise just because summer’s over. Try different kinds of activities such as hiking, biking, running, yoga… There are plenty of fun ways to get out of your routine and enjoy the beautiful fall colours!

In fact, it has been scientifically proven that being in contact with nature has a positive impact on your health and can reduce your heart rate and blood pressure. Another reason to enjoy the great outdoors!
