9 Nasty Body Changes When Fall Arrives In New York
It’s officially Fall in New York state, bringing about lovely things like changing leaves, family get-togethers, and football season - but have you also noticed that when fall arrives, it also brings some annoying (and frankly gross) changes to your body?
Even if you feel completely normal now, something will inevitably happen to your beautiful body that will make you feel like a disgusting person who doesn’t want to leave the house.
Relax - it happens to all of us. We’re all generally gross in the fall. Here are some things you can look out for thanks to the changing seasons in New York state.
This Is What Happens To Your Body When Fall Arrives In New York State
Wondering why you’re suddenly sneezing everywhere you go? Fall is prime time for those with allergies to ragweed. Sneezing more indoors? Think of all of the dust that settled in your heating exhausts over the summer. Ew.
Fall is the prime time to keep a mirror in your back pocket for a quick and subtle “nose check” for any leftovers.
Experience more headaches in the fall? It’s not just you.
All of that nose wiping can lead to some sensitive schnozzes, and unless you’re diligent about only using high-quality, lotion-packed tissues, some of us can get some inner nose cuts that lead to a bloody, scabby mess.
Sudden blasts of heat in our homes and cars can dry out our skin faster than we can scream for a tub of vaseline.
Stiff, Achy Joints
Arthritis and other random aches and pains tend to flare up thanks to the cooler weather.
Not only are we typically less active in the fall than we are in the summer, but all of those delicious tailgate delicacies are wreaking havoc on our waistlines. Also, fall boats the two most feared holidays for New Yorkers on a diet - Halloween and Thanksgiving. Speaking of food…
Thanks, tailgate food! Our tummies may not be prepared for the gallons of grease we’re inhaling this football season.
Gray, rainy skies are a perfect combination for stay-under-the-covers weather. Also, for many New Yorkers, the fall season can spark the beginning of seasonal affective disorder.
If any of these nasty fall-related ailments haven’t hit your body yet, consider yourself lucky! Do yourself a favor - stock up on cold meds, herbal tea, lotion tissues, and moisturizer before it’s too late.
