Simple Tips For An Easy Transition To Autumn

So many changes in our environment occur when summer ends and fall appears, so we have to make a few changes ourselves in order to transition with ease into the season. Here are a few tips will allow us to stay in tune with our environment, as well as our mind, body and spirit.

  1. Clean out/re-organize your closet. The beginning of fall is the perfect time to pack away our summer gear and pull out all of our fall and winter favorites. It’s also a great opportunity to cull and re-evaluate anything that isn’t getting as much wear as it should.

  2. Add extra moisture to your skincare routine. Adding extra moisture, like an oil, to your skincare routine is one way to fight away dry skin that comes with cooler weather in the fall and winter.

  3. Naturally boost your immune system. With the cooler seasons also comes cold and flu season, keep your immune system in tip top shape to fight against any illness that may come your way. I am personally a fan of natural supplements like elderberry, vitamin C and oil of oregano.

  4. Create a new daily schedule for shorter days. When day light savings hits us, the days get shorter and our routines get disrupted. Think ahead of the game by setting up a new routine and new activities that work with the shorter days ahead.

  5. Make your home cozy. As it becomes colder outside it’s nice to nest and create the hygge vibes. I love to add warmth by pulling out throw blankets, burning some incense, and brewing our favorite warm beverages all day long.

  6. Get daily exercise. Physical activity, even just 20 minutes a day, helps keep endorphin levels up during the colder months when we are more prone to falling into a slump. Exercise also keeps your bones and joints strong for the cold weather to come.

  7. Treat yourself to a mini vacation/staycation. With the fall and winter months also comes the holidays which can bring on a lot of stress. One way to beat the anxiety is to intentionally schedule some down time to de-stress.
