Embracing Fall

Now I think we can say the semester is truly in full swing.

Everyone is becoming quite a bit busier, classes are becoming just a bit more demanding, and exams are becoming just a bit more frequent.

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Well, that’s the beautiful thing about fall! I love the changing seasons because they remind me to reconnect. By reconnecting with the seasons, we can take little hints that nudge us to mimic some of the very things we are seeing in the environment around us. In the fall, the environment seems to tell us to slow down a little bit, turn the the lights off a little earlier, and not to be afraid to shed things off our life that are no longer serving us. The same way we will begin to see the trees shed their leaves, we can use this new season to let go of thoughts, actions, habits, and maybe even people who are no longer contributing to our own personal growth.

As we prepare to dive into Fall, don’t be afraid to listen to what your body is truly calling for. This is a wonderful time to offer nourishment, rest, and warmth to all aspects of our lives. Even though the school year starts to get pretty crazy, still try to make time for yourself.

Time for yourself can include going to bed a little earlier instead of going out, reading a book instead of watching a movie, getting a fulfilling workout in, spending time in silence, dancing to your favorite song (this is an especially great way to start your morning!),or making some nourishing food with some wonderful Fall flavors!

Here’s some great Fall recipes to try from some of our favorite blogs:
