For a lot of people, the fall season is not appealing, and it comes with a lot of downsides. The rainy days, lack of sunlight, and cold weather can really take a toll on people and their moods. Sometimes, it does for me too. However, there are ways to make the most of it, in spite of some of the more negative aspects.

For starters, this kind of weather is perfect for spicing up your wardrobe. Yes, it might be a little cold at times, but that just gives you more of a reason to dress cozier and layer up. You can really explore some cute fashion trends within autumn.

Second, take the time to enjoy the scenery. Personally, I think that fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. I love getting outside and experiencing that. Finding local trails, preserves, or parks are great ways to enjoy the fresh air and look at our beautiful Earth.

Similar to enjoying the scenery, I also spend time doing fall activities. These kinds of events are only available once a year, so have fun with them while you can! Go to a pumpkin patch and carve some pumpkins, listen to your favorite Halloween songs, drink some hot cider, take advantage of the various scary activities in your area if that’s your sort of thing. There is an endless list of things to do in the fall.

On the days that aren’t so nice out, embrace it. Take a little time in the afternoon to dim the lights, light a fall scented candle, put on comfy clothes, make your favorite coffee/tea/hot chocolate, and watch a movie. Personally, the rainy days really get to me. But, when I take time to myself and make my surroundings cozy, my mood immediately boosts every time. 

Fall definitely isn’t for everybody, but I think there are ways to make it a little more enjoyable. Try not to dwell on what’s lacking, but instead what you can do to make the most of your environment.
