I love to celebrate autumn!

The autumn season brings to mind crisp days with brilliant colors of red, yellow, and orange dotting the trees and landscape as the weather changes.

Depending on where you live, fall might be the best time to be outdoors! Fall is also the time of year you can take advantage of the cooler temperatures.

It’s perfect for enjoying nature and reveling in the change of seasons.

Enjoy Nature’s Landscape

Being in nature has a way of reducing stress and promoting relaxation.

There is just something about breathing in the fresh air that helps to clear a person’s mind.

Take a walk, jog, or hike through nature and enjoy the beauty of the season.

When you really stop to look you will notice how your parks, city, and neighborhood changes during fall. 

Grab a blanket and head to a park or even your backyard with a thermos of hot chocolate, cider, pumpkin spiced coffee, or hot cocoa and enjoy sights, sounds, and fresh air.

Take pictures of what you notice.

This could be a great project for the kids as well.

Find that gorgeous leaf full of brilliant colors and marvel at what nature can do. And most all, take a deep breath and relax.

Activities

There is no shortage of things to do in fall.

No matter where you live fall is usually a great time to get outdoors.

Depending on your region here are just a few fall activities you can enjoy with family and friends:

  • Visit a pumpkin patch
  • Make your way out of a corn maze
  • Got to a working farm
  • Apple picking
  • hiking
  • bike rides
  • camping
  • fall festivals

When weather permits, get outside and enjoy these activities.

Bring the kids and pick apples so you can make apple pie or candied apples later.

Choose pumpkins for decor or carving for Halloween. 

Bike around your neighborhood and explore streets you’ve never been down.

Hike your local area or camp out and sleep under the stars.

Attend fall fairs and enjoy the festivities. Make memories with your family and friends during this beautiful change of season.

Exercise

Refocus your fitness routine to include outdoor activities. You’ll be surrounded by nature and inhaling clean air provided for you thanks to Mother Nature. The weather will be perfect for cardio exercises like running, walking or biking. 

If you’ve never practiced yoga outside, this is the time to do so! Grab your mat or just ground yourself in the grass.

Consider what time of day you exercise. You might find it relaxing to be outside to watch the sunrise or change to an evening run and catch the sunset. While your exercise activity may remain the same, let nature provide its ever-changing backdrop as a reminder of its beauty.
