The Autumn season is here; Autumn is my favourite season because of the shifting colour of the leaves and the brown and orange shades that fill the streets. Autumn is a season that I find simple to romanticise and makes me feel like the main character in my own life.
However, I recognise that not everyone shares that opinion. Seasonal depression is real, and some people are affected by the grey and colder months, with early nights, constant rain, and feeling stuck and compelled to remain inside all day.
Here are a few simple and inexpensive things to do this Autumn season to make the most of it:
- Coffee shops/bakeries - go to the cosiest coffee shop you can find and order your favourite type of coffee or cake; you can go with a friend or on a solo date; nothing beats the ambience of a coffee shop, the light music playing in the background, or the chatter of others, which can make you feel more lively. Perhaps you like a quiet coffee shop where you can read, either way it's a good place to be.
- Read a book - Following from above, If you haven't read all year and have been meaning to read that book that you have been putting off, now is the perfect time to do so, in your room, living room, or coffee shop.
- Take a walk - assuming it isn't pouring, put on your headphones and go for a walk. It doesn't have to be far; just get some fresh air and you can also take some pictures of the beautiful scenery.
These are some of the things that I have and aim to be indulging in, this Autumn.
