To many people around the world, fall is a season centered around mindfulness, self-reflection, and self-care. It is during these last few months of the year that Mother Nature dedicates her time to ‘cleaning’ the earth by shedding her leaves and preparing the world for the hibernation of wintertime.
While many of us are getting ready for the coldest season of the year, we are also doing our part to celebrate these special autumn months by doing some of our favorite fall-time activities. From jumping in leaf piles, picking apples, or going on hikes in nature to view the changing of the leaves, there are so many ways to enjoy the season of the soul.
