Autumn 秋 is finally here! Days are shorter, the mercury is going down, leaves are changing color and fluttering to the ground. I don’t know about you but whenever the seasons change, I feel really inspired to initiate changes in my life. And why not? Change is important. It keeps us alive and going. There are many reasons why autumn is the best time to start changing your life. Just grab a cup of hot chocolate and continue reading…

Time to reflect on the past and plan for the future

Just as nature follows a seasonal cycle, difficult situations pass and make way for new opportunities in our lives too. Pick a rainy day and reflect on the last few months. If not, just head to a park to see the beautiful reds and yellows while thinking about an important decision, or to just clear your mind. Summarise your various achievements in the past months and prioritize your goals for the next few months. Use this time to think about what you want to achieve in life. Reflect, plan and achieve!

More time for yourself and your goals in autumn

In autumn we seem to have more time in the evenings. Fewer activities are competing for our time, less reason to go out for drinks after work or attend evening fireworks festivals. In fact, autumn is the perfect time to start achieving your goals as you don’t think about your summer vacation and fun summer parties! Take advantage of cozy evenings at home. Spend some time learning something new, a skill or a hobby. Or learn a new language, start your own blog or business. Or why not spend more time with yourself by meditating, reading and just doing other activities that will help you to know yourself better. Autumn is the perfect time to start something new. Challenge yourself to become more productive and transition into the next season with a feeling of accomplishment.

Eat healthily and start exercising

If you binged-ate while watching Netflix all summer as I did, there is no better time to start eating healthy and start exercising than this season. During the autumn months, there are many fruits and vegetables available, making it easier to start a new healthy lifestyle. You can change your eating habits with new recipes and new ingredients, especially if like me you have fallen into a predictable pattern of ready to eat meals or takeouts. Not only is it easier to eat healthily, but the weather is perfect for a run around the neighborhood. It is easier to work out when it’s a little bit colder outside, with beautiful autumn foliage to calm and relax you even more. Another plus is that if you adopt healthy eating habits during the fall season, you will be healthier and have more energy during the winter season (and also you might feel less guilty for drinking that second cup of hot chocolate).
