Make your Space as Cozy as Possible
Remember when I said that fall is a time to get comfy? I mean it!
The autumnal season is time for rest. Don’t be afraid to get yourself comfy!
If you feel like it, you could even paint your nails a nice fall colour!
Buy Some Fall-Scented Stuff
I have the belief that as soon as fall hits, you need to overwhelm your senses with nice-smelling fall stuff.
Yes, that means candles, beauty products and skin care. All of it.
It has to do with aromatherapy. You will feel a bit better by smelling nice-smelling things.
So, light that cinnamon candle and have a self care shower with your Bath & Body Works Fall stuff!
Make a Natural Fall-Scented Potpourri for Fall Self Care
Again, when your house smells like fall, everything will be all right.
By simply heating a few ingredients in the oven or on the stovetop, you can make your house smell like an entire fall wonderland!
There are so many fall-scented potpourri recipes that you can use, but if you’re not feeling like doing that, you can just bake something sweet for the same effect!
Get a Haircut
A new season means that it’s time for a haircut.
If you spent time in the pool or out in the sun, your hair is damaged. Keep your hair healthy by getting it cut and styled.
For a lot of people, the fall season can be a good opportunity to change it up. Look up some hairstyle ideas and try it to see if you like it!
Fall is always a good time to start a new glow up challenge, and a haircut is a good place to start!
Take as Many Pictures as Possible
Fall is the time to make memories with loved ones. Why not keep those memories in the form of photos?
You can get crafty by making a photo album of what your fall season looked like. Take photos of anything that makes you happy! This can be your friends, nice sceneries etc.
Clean Your Entire Space
Again with the cleaning! You’ve heard of spring cleaning, but what about fall cleaning?
Clean your space from top to bottom! You’ll have a nice place to chill in when you come home after a stressful day. Plus, you’ll have an amazing sleep after cleaning all day.
Everyone makes mistakes, but sometimes, it can be hard to forgive ourselves for messing up.
You are human. You can’t get it right all the time, and you will make mistakes. This season, an important self care task you need to do is learn how to forgive yourself.
You can do this simply by journaling about it or by talking through it with someone. The point is, you don’t deserve to suffer any longer.
Invest in Your Skincare
Any Skincare by Hyram fans here? Having a skincare routine is important in general, but having that habit of taking care of yourself is an amazing fall self care idea.
Start by getting some nice skincare products, and implementing a routine every day. There are lots of resources online to help you out with this process.
Just the simple act of giving yourself a face massage every day is so relaxing. Try it!
Cut Off The Dead Leaves for Fall Self Care
See what I did there? What I mean by cutting off the dead leaves is to let go of toxic people.
People who drain you and always put you down are just taking space in your life. Weed out those negative people! Cut off contact, delete them from social media or just distance yourself. Either way, your mental health comes first.
This might be hard at first, but you will feel so much better in the long run.
End Note: Fall Self Care is Important
Do you associate fall with new beginnings? I do.
The kids are going back to school, a new season is beginning, and the old leaves are falling from the trees. It’s just time for self improvement.
I hope you can implement these autumnal self care ideas in your life. Learning to prioritize self care is hard at first, but you deserve to feel happy!
