After enjoying the outdoors during the hot summer months, it’s no surprise that our automatic reaction to cool, fall weather can be to head indoors. The fall is such a beautiful time of year; it would be a shame to spend it inside! Instead, I want to encourage you to get outside before the winter months really make us want to hibernate.
To help motivate you, I’m sharing some of my favourite things to do outdoors during the fall, and my secrets that help keep me going (even if it’s a little chilly).
There’s nothing better than going for a long, fall walk to take in all the sensory experiences the season has to offer. From the smell of fresh air, to the colourful changing leaves, you’re sure to make this a staple in your weekly routine. But with the change of season comes a change to our wardrobe.
Switching from sandals to shoes and boots can be uncomfortable as our feet get used to different footwear. To help ease any discomfort, I wear my Dr. Scholl’s Comfort & Energy Massaging Gel Insoles, especially on longer walks to make sure I can comfortably keep moving without having to turn back early. These insoles are great for foot and leg fatigue, with gel waves that massage the most sensitive areas of my foot.
If you’re looking for a little more activity, there are lots of options to keep you going during the fall. You could join a fall sports league, or maybe take classes with your kids (I’m taking martial arts with my oldest this year!). If sports aren’t your thing, check out fun outdoor activities happening in your area each week, like apple picking, hiking, or going to a pumpkin patch.
I know what you’re thinking, the aches and pains that come with physical activity can be a deterrent (even if it’s picking up a few pumpkins), especially if it affects your sleep. I keep ALEVE Nighttime on my nightstand so I don’t have to worry.
ALEVE Nighttime relieves my muscle aches and pains for up to 12 hours, plus it has a sleep aid to help me fall asleep and stay asleep.
I love watching my son’s artistic side come out creating DIY things for the house or crafts using bits of nature he finds during the fall months (and on my fall walks).
It’s amazing how creative we can get using colourful leaves, birch bark, or flowers (isn’t that pine cone turkey cute?!).
Our family is always looking for new fall activities to do together, what are your favourite things to do during the fall season?
