Fill your kitchen with the scents of autumn
Make the most of seasonal flavours like apples, pumpkins, squash, and cinnamon by getting in the kitchen and making comforting stews, soups, casseroles and pies. Take the time to try out some new recipes, or fill your kitchen with seasonal scents by doing some baking. This is the perfect time of year to dust off your slow cooker, and fill your house with the scent of delicious food.
Bring a bit of autumn inside by hanging wreaths in your home, make your living space autumn ready with cosy blankets and throws, fill your home with autumn scents by lighting scented candles. Create a cosy den you can spend time in when it’s cold and gloomy outside, somewhere you can curl up with a book and a cup of tea.
Spring is often known as the season for fresh starts, but autumn is also a fantastic time for new beginnings. Start with a deep clean of your house - you’re spending more time indoors due to the changing weather anyway, and you’ll want to get your house clean and ready for upcoming holidays. It’s also a good time to re-organise your wardrobe so your winter gear is within reach. Autumn also offers an opportunity to reflect; consider the goals you’ve achieved and the ones you still aspire to reach.
The vibrant colours and enchanting visuals that autumn brings are great inspiration for creative pursuits. Try your hand at something creative like painting, writing, adult colouring, or photography to make the most of this inspirational season.
Autumn is a season of transformation, reflection and celebration. Embrace the autumn season and the wonder that it brings, and make the most of the changing world around you rather than focusing on the dropping temperatures and darker days it might bring. Create cherished memories and new traditions that you can do every year when autumn rolls around.
