Cozy Fall Self-Care

It’s that time again! Time for the season to change and drift into a slower pace. Time for the leaves to fall, the air to get crisper, scarves to make their way out of your closet, and warm drinks to abound. Naturally, our bodies pick up a slower pace during this time to adjust to the environment. Don’t fight the season. Evolve with it. Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven..” As we drift into fall, be intentional about taking care of yourself by embracing a self-love routine. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

 

 

  1. Create a chill, wind down playlist or vibe out to an album that will help you relax. Two of my favorite albums currently in heavy rotation are: PJ Morton & Elevation Worship.

 

2. Make yourself a hot drink. My go to’s are an assortment of teas. One of my favorites is “roasted almond.” I purchase it at a local tea shop. It’s basically apple pieces, vanilla, almond pieces, beetroot pieces, & hibiscus flowers. It smells soooo good! If tea isn’t your thang, try a coffee frappe, cappuccino, apple cider, hot chocolate, ect. Whatever floats your boat! Just make sure it’s warm.

3. Treat yourself to something new!  This could be anything from a new pair of boots, trench coat, scarves, nail polish, or even a new tie. So far, I’ve really been enjoying purchasing vampy lippies. Y’all ladies know how we get–we want these bold fall lipsticks. Lol…My collection currently consists of some shades of chocolate, wine, deep berries, and even a black.

4. Declutter! I’ve actually been working on this, this past week. The trees are shedding leaves that no longer serve them. Why not shed the layers of clothing that no longer work for you? Grab a huge bag, crank up some music to zone out, and hit up your closets and drawers. If you haven’t worn it in the last year, let it go. Don’t reason yourself into holding on to it. Honey, you have to get ready for the new that Our Heavenly Father has prepared to enter into your life.

5. Spend some time outdoors. The fall is the perfect time to enjoy activities like hitting up the pumpkin patch, corn maze, or even the apple orchard. If nothing else, go on a stroll at the park and take in all the beautiful foliage and fresh air.

6. Have a do nothing day. Well, by “do nothing” I mean have a marathon of your favorite throwback sitcoms (Martin on deck…lol) with some popcorn, and some kind of pumpkin-inspired treat! I mean EVERYTHING comes in pumpkin these days! One of my favorites is pumpkin pop tarts! Gosh, they get me everytime! Lol.
