As October makes a debut on the calendar, Summer has officially come to a close. While the time for sunny holiday travels and warm weather has passed, don’t let the seasonal transition get you down. Follow these tips to make the most of autumn and avoid the post-summer blues:
- Appreciate your hometown – For many, the summer is filled with travels to new and exciting destinations. However, Autumn is the time to appreciate what is right in front of you. Savour where you live by taking a detour during your commute or going for a walk outside your usual route. You may be surprised to find that unique experiences and novelties exist just outside your doorstep, such as tasty restaurants or creative clubs.
- Celebrate the season – Summer offers many fun seasonal activities, such as going to the beach and soaking up the sun. As autumn approaches, keep things interesting by updating your seasonal habits. Potential examples include creating and October reading list, planning out an autumn wardrobe or trying new recipes filled with fresh seasonal foods. Popular autumn produce consists of apples, beetroot, butternut squash, kale, and pumpkin.
- Develop a resolution – Although we often associate resolutions with the beginning of the year, it’s never a bad time to set a personal goal. Start the season with a little momentum and strive to achieve something you’ve always wanted, like training for a marathon or joining a new club relation to your passion.
