5 Things To Appreciate In The Autumn

With the Winter nights drawing in, there’s no better time than the present to take in the beauty of Autumn.

1. Walking through leaves

I love the feeling of the crunchy leaves beneath your feet on a cold, Autumnal day. There’s something nostalgic and child-like about wading in the piles that accumulate on the pavement.

2. Frosty mornings

Whilst it might be difficult to force yourself out of your warm bed in the morning, it seems less difficult when there’s a beautiful frost to admire during your uni commute.

3. Winter sunsets

Red sky at night, Shepherd’s delight!

4. Long walks

Wrap up warm and get some fresh air. Treat yourself with a warming cup of hot chocolate on your return.

5. Collecting conkers

Take yourself back to your primary school days and collect a few conkers in your local woods. They’re a natural deterrent for spiders as well as reminding you of the fun that was had in the playground.
