Autumn is a transition season, and with the days growing shorter, the leaves falling off the trees, and the long winter approaching, it’s common for people to get the seasonal blues. Now is a great time to focus on your well-being. These simple strategies can help keep you feeling fall fantastic!
- Soak Up The Sun: Autumn is a great time to build up Vitamin D reserves, as the Sun is no longer at its strongest. Barring any skin issues, 20 minutes twice a day should do the trick.
- Be A Happy Camper: Camping is a great way to connect with nature and fall is a great time for it. Camping in autumn requires a bit more preparation, though. Dress in layers and bring aluminum foil to place under your sleeping bag (or pad), which will help keep you warm by blocking a significant amount of cold from damp earth below.
- Spring Forward: Did you know that you can plant bulbs inside? Just grab a pot, good potting mix, and dig the holes the same depth as you would outside, or try our ideas for forcing bulbs in containers. You’ll be able to enjoy the scent and beauty of blooms indoors.
- Look Inward: With its shorter days and longer nights, autumn is a great time to start reflecting on the year past and hone your meditation skills. This centuries-old practice improves clarity, relaxation, and overall well-being.
