All The Best Fall Self-Care Tips

October 28, 2020

Fall is truly the season of slowing down, harvesting the fruits of your labor, celebrating, and practicing gratitude. There are many ways to do that in our life! We can embrace the autumn season in how we eat, the way we approach relationships, reflect on our personal challenges or accomplishments, and even in our beauty routines. This is the perfect time in the cycle of nature to choose ease over discomfort, to simplify and balance out life in order to prepare for the colder season ahead. 


On the indigenous “medicine wheel”, fall is located in the west representing the sunset. Truly, the metaphors of harvesting and celebrating before the night of winter are reflected in the weather and colors of fall. There are also many traditions during this time and seasonal foods to get excited about! Think Halloween, pumpkin everything, apple crisps, Thanksgiving, and lots of crockpot comfort food! 


If you haven’t REALLY taken the time to embrace self-care in this difficult year, now is the perfect time. HERE is the round up of our favorite fall self-care tips on everything from nutrition, to mental health, to personal growth, to skin care!
