With fall fast approaching, it’s time for different types of self-care. Your needs change with each season. That’s why it’s so important to develop a plan that accounts for the physical changes in the environment you’re living in. Fall weather is distinctly different in most parts of the nation than it is in the spring and summer.
Self-Care is the Greatest Gift You Give Yourself
Self-care comes in many forms. It can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, financial, social, and intellectual. The self-care routine that you create for yourself can address a single need or a combination of needs. It’s profoundly personal and everchanging.
Here are four fall-related to-dos to check off your self-care list:
- Invest in a slow cooker and make soups and stews. Nourish your body with something nutritious and warming. You can turn on the slow cooker while you’re away from home. That means that you’ll come home to a hot meal every night.
- Cultivate an attitude of gratitude. List at least three things a day that you appreciate having in your life. Keeping a Gratitude Journal is an excellent practice for exercising mindfulness. It helps you see all that is beneficial in your life.
- Meditate to deal with stress successfully. Take five to ten minutes to destress by clearing your mind and focusing on your breath. It’s a practice you can explore anywhere you go. Meditation is a go-to tool that requires little effort once you’ve gotten the hang of it.
- Fill your home with incredible scents. Autumn smells are amazing. Bring them into your home through aromatherapy essential oils or candles. Think spiced cider or pumpkin spice.
Self-care is the best way to take care of yourself. By putting your needs first, you’re able to be of better service to other people in your life and community. Seasonal self-care allows you to change things up and be more equipped to handle new weather conditions and temperatures. It lets you reevaluate your level of satisfaction with the different areas of your life and make adjustments accordingly.
