Life| 10 Things to Do This Fall!

“ Fall is a for balancing light and dark, letting go, and accepting the impermanence of things”Source

Fall is the season of transition…

1. Let things go!– Just like the leaves fall from the trees, let the bad things, people, and places fall out of your life. Fall is the time of harvest. Can you harvest weeds? I don’t think so. We need to “stock up” for the harsh winters. We cannot let negative attitudes or people stay in our lives for another season. Remember people are in your life for a reason, season, or lifetime. Maybe their season has come to an end. Reevaluate areas of your life to make sure they are aligned to what God has ordained for you. If not, let it go!
2. Get your beauty sleep! Thank God for that extra hour! The days will be shorter and nights will be longer. So get enough rest so that you can operate at your full potential.
3. Do a closet audit. Before you go shopping for fall clothes, please do an audit of what you already have. How many plum sweaters do you really need? If something doesn’t fit, get rid of it. If you haven’t worn it last season, don’t save it. It’s time to remove the clutter. Before you shop make a list of what you have and what you need.
4. Change that moisturizer! When the weather gets cooler I use a heavier moisturizer to prevent my skin from drying out. One of my favorites to use is in the fall is AMBI. It contains SPF and it keeps my skin moisturized all day.
5. Get a trim! Just like you let people go in your life, let those dead ends go too. I like to do protective styles in the fall and winter, so why am I protecting struggling ends again? Exactly.
6. Berry, berry, good. Yes fall is great for darker shades of nail polish and lipsticks. Head to your local drugstore if you don’t want to break the bank. Here’s one of my favorite lipsticks for the fall from Covergirl. Deep purples, burgundy, and berry colors will never go out of season for the fall.
7. Dust off those running sneakers. The fall has perfect running weather for the morning. It’s not too cool and the smell of fresh dew will keep you energized throughout the morning. If you don’t want to run outside, go to the gym.
8. Season of soups and chilis- put that slow cooker to use! Here’s one of my favorite chili recipes which is a staple for when it gets cool.
9. Can you say pumpkin spice? Get yourself a pumpkin spice latte. I’m addicted. I love pumpkin spice muffins, donuts, lattes!
10. Fruit– stock up on berries! They are great antioxidants, but this is the time for pomegranates, and not blueberries. So stock up on your favorites and freeze them for your smoothies.
