#ILoveFall 10 Ways to Fully Embrace the Season [The 2017 Edition]

I was listening to the audiobook of Book of Joy, Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama XIV, Desmond Tutu, Douglas Carlton Abrams – and heard this quote – “Every day is an opportunity to begin again. Everyday is your birthday.” As the seasons change and I reflect on the year to date, I keep coming back to that quote, and find I want to keep it in my heart. Embrace change, find joy even from seemingly small or simple things – and hold on to it!

#ILoveFall – 10 Ways to Fully Embrace the Season

ONE. Get Outside for Fall. Go apple picking | pumpkin patch | hike or walk outside | corn maze.

TWO. Bring the Season Inside.  Add touches to the home – colors, leaves, plants. And add some scary touches for Halloween too.

THREE. Experience the Foods of Fall. Eat and/or drink all the pumpkin lattes and pies | apple cider | sweet potato pie | craft beer | cider donuts | soup and chili

FOUR. Read all the Books. A scary book in October. Or 2 … or 3 in honor of Halloween. Or just curl up under the blankets with a good book as often as possible (check out our 6 Fall Reading Favorites).

FIVE. Binge Watch. Movie Marathon | Fall TV is a thing.

SIX. Celebrate the Holidays. Dress in a costume for Halloween | Trick-or-Treat | Cook a mini-feast for Thanksgiving (without stressing about it).

SEVEN. Get in the game. Run a Fall race. Or walk. Or run with zombies | Play some games with the family | Go to a football game.

EIGHT. Explore. Go to a Fall festival | new restaurant | State fair

NINE. Embrace the Chill. Don’t complain about the cold – read by the fireplace | make a bonfire | drink all the tea | hot cocoa.

TEN. Plan. Decorate for Christmas | Make New Years Resolutions early (like our End-of-(Y)ear and New (Y)ear Resolution Prep List) | Add good habits
