Right now is the time of year when things start to get really busy. There are three million things to do, hundreds of dishes to cook and, unfortunately, not enough alcohol in the world to keep yourself sane while doing said tasks. 
Having high energy these days is a virtue that seems to be getting lost among the deadlines, workouts, kids, and bills. If you want to get things done, you better have 5 shots of espresso along with the 3 coffees you had before lunch.
It's that time of day – gym time. It doesn't matter if you are a true blue gym rat, because there are days that even the most dedicated people drag their feet. Everyone has those days where it's just been an awful day from start to finish and you just want to end the day. 
Right now we are in the middle of fall, and every day we inch closer and closer to the blistering cold months of winter. While some people get their flu shot and are set for the winter, some people can't get the shot and have to find other ways to stay on top of their immune system.

With Daylight Savings right around the corner, it's a good idea to start getting yourself prepared for longer nights and shorter days.
