Have you noticed the days growing shorter and the slight chill in the air in the mornings and evenings? As the summer winds down, fall is slowly creeping in. Many of us can breathe a sigh of relief as the children are finally back in school (thank goodness) and we finally experience a respite from the sweltering summer heat. Now is the perfect time to unwind and engage in a little rest and relaxation. Today we would like to discuss the perfect way to unwind this fall:

Take a Walk

Nothing clears the head quite like a good walk. Are certain problems or issues plaguing your mind? You might gain some clarity by simply stepping outside and rambling about for awhile. Of course, the most optimal time for a relaxing and invigorating stroll is during the sunset or sunrise. Often we take for granted the spectacular sight of the rising or setting sun, but this is the perfect time to marvel at its beauty. Both long and short walks have their benefits, and simply walking for just 20 minutes a day can positively impact your health.

Read a Good Book (Preferably Outside)

One of the biggest reliefs of the fall season is that the horrible mosquito population begins to drop. Although some of these evil little blood-sucking creatures are still flying around, you will not have to douse yourself in bug spray every time you venture outside. As the temperatures drop, you will also start wearing warmer clothes with long sleeves, protecting your body from experiencing any unnecessary bug bites. Therefore, there’s no better time to stretch out on your outdoor patio furniture and curl up with your favorite book. Preferably, this book should be an actual hardback or paperback copy. To truly relax and unwind, it’s best to keep all electronics away, which includes tablets, ebooks, and your cellphone. By keeping your mobile devices tucked away, you can lose yourself in your book without being constantly disrupted by notification.

Dine Al Fresco

The only thing that makes dining with your loved ones even better is eating a delicious meal outside. Some of you truly lucky individuals may have an outdoor kitchen for cooking outside, which feels significantly more laid back than dining inside. Even if you don’t have an outdoor kitchen, you can still enjoy the amazing fall weather by gathering your favorite people on your backyard patio for an outdoor meal. After all, the temperatures seem to drop from sweltering hot to freezing cold in a blink of an eye, so enjoy the perfect weather while you can.

Soak in Your Outdoor Hot Tub

Nothing melts away your worries quite like a good soak in the tub. Following a delicious outdoor meal, you and your friends could enjoy a glass of wine in your hot tub. Not only will the warm, bubbly water emerging from the jets relax your mind, but it will also help soothe your achy muscles.
