The long days of summer have faded. We are in the season of crisp weather, and colorful hues of orange, red, and yellow in the foliage. Fall has arrived!
I yearn for this magical time of the year, always ready to put on my boots and sweaters. I live in Georgia, which in October is still a little too warm. Yet I obsessively watch my weather app for those chilly mornings. I can’t wait to dive into everything about this season.
Looking for fun activities? From enjoying the outdoors to getting hygge inside, here are five things you can do this fall.
1. Check Out the Fall Foliage
The colors in nature are the most beautiful this season of the year. It’s the best time to be outdoors and get some fresh air. Health-wise, being outside is good for you. It boosts your energy and immune system. It also helps with creativity, increases concentration, and relieves stress.
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to see the bright hues in the trees. The northernmost parts of North America have already peaked. My heart breaks for the northwestern United States that have been sieged with wildfires. But for the rest of the U.S. and much of Europe, October through November are the predicted months to view the foliage. Leave changes happen into the month of December in some countries of Asia.
