While summer is not officially over, the end is near and we have to make way for the beautiful season of fall. Cooler temps, changing colors, falling leavings, and all things pumpkin create the perfect recipe for a cozy vibe. Before we fall hard for the next season, here are five ways we can begin to wrap up summer in preparation for fall.
Switch Out Your Wardrobe
Alright, so maybe you don’t want to store all of your summer clothes just yet, but it’s a good idea to start bringing out those layering pieces. Flannel button-ups, leggings, light jackets, and cozy sweaters are all fall essentials.
Change Out Home Decor
There is an easy way to transition your home from summer to fall, and most of it is decor-related. Change out any light and airy coverings or linens to a warmer tone. Switch your sheets and duvet cover to a heavy quilt and flannel sheets. Purchase some seasonal plants like mums to leave at your doorstep to greet guests with a fall vibe. Little things can make a big impact when it comes to your home by embracing the fall season.
Plan Your Fall Vegetable Garden
The growing season is not over yet! It’s a good time to harvest the rest of your summer crop and determine what it is you want to plant in the fall. Don’t have the space to plant outdoors? We love this Click and Grow Smart Garden that you can maintain indoors.
Schedule Your Fall Activities
Take this time to plan your fall adventures. Get your gear prepped for a fall camping trip. Map out a road trip across the state. Nail down a new hobby and start gathering materials needed to execute it. Whatever it may be, use this time to reflect and plan for what’s to come.
Prepare Your Body For Changing Seasons
We may not realize it, but when the seasons change our bodies sense the shift, and it can sometimes feel like a bit of a shock to our systems. Get ready to renew and replenish from those hot summer months and transition to cooler temps by drinking lots of water, getting the sleep you need, and exercising daily. And the food you feed your body is most important. Hit up the farmers market before the season ends.
With summer coming to a close soon, it’s time to think ahead to fall. Use these five steps to ensure you have a healthy, happy, and cozy fall. For more tips on living well, visit the Olympus Midtown blog.
