So sit back, find some cozy attire and prepare to self-care all Fall/Autumn long!
5 Fun Fall Activities to consider for Self-Care
If you’ve been following our blog, then you know we’re HUGE advocates for self-care! It’s super important super important for EVERYONE to TAKE the time they need to self-care, as often as possible. With that being said, this season, we want to share super fun, yet exciting activities you try!
Although the classic self-care activities are cool, they can get a little stale, leaving us to only look forward to bubble baths, walking outside, burning candles. But there’s ways to invigorate your self-care journey with fun fall activities, solo or with company.
Now before you read our 5 TOP fun fall activities to try, be open minded. If you’re not really feeling these activities, find ways you can modify for your entertainment pleasure!
1- Naked Yoga
This fun fall activity is for the comfort of your home (in front of a body length mirror). You can go commando or just wear under gourmets. The idea of this activity is to embrace your body! It’s time to start living where you are in the body you have! Although you’re actively striving to be better and stronger, there’s no better time than now to embrace the body you have!
Yes, you will still get the same benefits as before, but now we’ve added another one (benefit) to the list- body confidence!
If you want an alternative, don’t forget, there’s also hot yoga, which is the opposite of naked yoga! Since the weather is cool and chilly, turn up your thermostats to 85-90 degrees and work up a sweat in front of your mirror.
DON’T forget to give yourself hugs and kudos!
2- Say “YES” to A FriendsGiving
Friendsgiving is a fun fall activity to add to your list. It’s breaking tradition of only being with your family for Thanksgiving; and visiting or hosting a Thanksgiving dinner with friends.
This is a great option for those who can’t make it home for the holidays or those wanting to do something different and fun! It’s a new day in age and no one does it like the young generation on IG! So find something cute and sassy to wear, because of course pictures will be posted: the set-up, the guest/host, the activities, etc.
So what about your family? Great question…
Obligate yourself to your family either earlier during the day or hit them up for leftovers the next day!
3- Starbuck and Chill (watch leaves fall)
One of the most anticipated things of autumn I hear, are pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks!
While I’m not a coffee drinker, it’s a highly popular drink. So if you’re a coffee lover and appreciates this time of year to drink your seasonal beverage, go ahead and order your grande (even venti) pumpkin spice Latte or Frappuccino to fit the mood of fall! ! And while you’re indulging, sit in front an open glass and watch the beautiful leaves fall!
Enjoy the scenery and take a few minutes to live in the moment and practice gratitude!
You can also do this if you live near a park with benches or seating areas.
Don’t forget to take deep breathes and feel the breeze while connecting with nature!
4- Fall Festivals
One of the best things about fall is enjoying all the many pumpkin festivals offered!
This fun fall activity can be enjoyed alone or with family! You can’t go wrong either way!
Use Google, to find the festivals near you! Most of the time, there’s pumpkin patch mazes, hay rides, fair rides, games and more to enjoy! The weekend weather is usually beautiful, not too hot or too cold!
Depending on the area you live, you might find tasty fall treats sold by vendors!
That’s especially good to hear for our pumpkin spice lovers!
5- Holiday Shopping/Budgeting
The final fun fall activity is retail therapy, but on a budget!
Since Christmas is right around the corner, there’s SALE after SALE after SALE! If you’re not careful you can turn this fun fall activity into a depressing one!
So if you’re planning on buying something for others, find as many clearance racks as possible and be responsible shoppers! Budgeting will be your best friend and help you shop smart for yourself and loved ones!
And although you MAY purchase things you don’t need, it feels much better purchasing it on sale… RIGHT?!
Last thing you need to know about Fun Fall Activities for self care…
No matter the season, self-care should be a priority!
We can use different seasons to spice things up or start new traditions. The objective is to always explore and try things outside of your norm, otherwise you can fall victim of becoming a creature of habit and not live your full best life!
Never stop falling in love with yourself or take for granted the opportunities of right now!
We hope you enjoyed reading about these fun fall activities, but we hope you have more fun doing them!
Don’t be afraid to let us know what you think or your experiences once you tried it!
As always, share this blog post with others and pin it so others can find it!
