Taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be hard or boring~
Fall is a unique time of year. The leaves are changing and the whole world seems to change. There is a plethora of new snacks to try, activities go experience, and fashions to wear. But sometimes with so much change comes a lot of stress.
Taking time for self-care is super important at any point in the year, but I figured I would share some of my favorite autumn self-care ideas.
Take a hike- nature is gorgeous this time of year, so take a look around. Find a nice place where the leaves are changing and get outside for a walk or read a good book. Being outside is a great form of self-care and keeps you grounded.
Grab your favorite fall snack- I love cider and cider donuts! Whenever I need a fall style pick me up, I gravitate towards things that are spiced and apple flavored. If a PSL makes you smile, then grab one and relax.
- Let Go- Fall is the perfect time to let go of dead things. Get rid of things that don’t serve you to allow room for new growth.
- Get crafty- Paint a pumpkin, sketch the trees, write poetry about the weather. Fall is a time filled with inspiration, use to in your self-care.
- Take advantage of bad weather- summer often pressures you yo go out and do things, but fall offers a break. With rainy days comes excuses to stay in and relax. Use them.
Get festive- I relax by getting into the fall spirit. I bake cookies, watch movies, and decorate during self-care days because it takes my mind off my stress and anxiety, and puts it onto fun things.
How do you take care of yourself in the fall?
