Autumn is a really beautiful time of year, especially if you live in a place where you get to see the leaves change colors! Despite our best efforts, we sometimes skip right over fall because of the hustle and bustle of the back to school season. Here are 10 ways to slow down and enjoy fall this year, no matter how busy you may be.
Head outside for a while
The crisp fall air and the nice cool breeze are two parts of fall that you don’t want to miss out on! Head outside for a little while and take in the fall air.
Bake something sweet
Fall is the perfect time to warm up your kitchen and fill your home with the sweet smells of fall. Bake a batch of brownies, cookies, or anything else you might be craving this fall.
Make your favorite fall drink from scratch
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you need to run to Starbucks in order to get your pumpkin spice latte fix. You can make your favorite fall drink from scratch right in your own home! Look online for a few simple DIY versions and make your own at home!
Make something out of a pumpkin
The possibilities of what you can make with pumpkin are really endless. From a savory pumpkin alfredo pasta to the classic pumpkin bread or pie, you can make whatever you are in the mood for. When you pick out the pumpkins you plan to carve, why not pick up an extra to cook with!
Make use of the extra hour of daylight savings
We will be setting our clocks an hour back soon, which means that you get an extra hour of sleep! However, make use of this time to enjoy yourself! After all, you’re used to staying up that extra hour anyway.
Fill your home with the warm scents of fall
There are so many great potpourri recipes, candles, and other ways to bring the warm scents of fall into your home. Light a fall scented candle or start a pot on the stove to fill your home with the tasty smells of fall.
Enjoy the fall harvest by visiting the farmer’s market
If you have a farmer’s market nearby, head there to grab some amazing fall harvest! There will be tons of great vegetables in season that you can turn into a tasty dish!
Make a few fun crockpot recipes
Crockpot recipes are great for the fall months! These cook low and slow which means you can take your time with them and cook them to perfection. Crockpots are always a great way to enjoy your favorite comfort foods without the hassle!
Cuddle up under a blanket with a good book
Making the time to read can be kind of tricky. Grab your favorite blanket and cuddle up to enjoy a good book for a few hours.
Sit outside and enjoy Fall with a cup of hot chocolate
Grab yourself a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the sunset outside. The drink will keep you warm even on the chilliest of nights!
I hope this list helps you take the time to embrace and indulge in the fall season. Before you know it, we’ll be moving on to Black Friday shopping and wrapping Christmas presents!
