Self-care can be seasonal. As our needs change from month to month, it only makes sense to choose to engage in activities that nourish our minds, bodies, and souls as well as the time and space that we’re currently experiencing. As with any other season, fall requires a certain level of care for you to be comfortable.
Seasonal Self-Care Practices You Can Personalize
To assist you in coming up with a personalized care plan for yourself, we’ve created a shortlist of ideas for you to explore that you can do during the cooler weather months of the year. Each idea gets you one step closer to being the happiest, healthiest, and most outstanding version of yourself possible.
Here are some fall self-care activities that have women looking and feeling their best:
- Give your skin some extra TLC. Colder weather takes its toll on your body. It sucks the moisture out of your skin. Making it a point to moisturize your body from head to toe daily helps you look and feel your best. Drink water frequently, too, to give yourself moisture from the inside out.
- Nourish your body with root vegetables. Seasonal vegetables such as hearty squashes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and turnips have health benefits. They’re warming, which helps bring you comfort when the weather gets colder. Eat stews and soups, which are easier on the digestive system.
- Start winding down your yearly schedule before the holidays arrive. Don’t spread yourself too thin. As social schedules pick up because of the holidays, you’ll face a busier routine than usual. Pick and choose what you do because good self-care involves knowing your physical and mental limits.
- Take a break from your routine by exploring new possibilities. New thinking helps you grow as a person. Rather than fall into the same way of living, challenge yourself to do something new and give your brain the workout it needs to thrive. You’ll have options to look forward to exploring right away.
Add to the list as you run across ideas that you like. Before you know it, you’ll have seasonal self-care ideas that you can implement quickly. You’ll feel excellent knowing that you’ve taken charge of your health in many ways.
