SO GREAT!!! I love being outside. It absolutely lifts my mood. Winter is a tough one for me. In upstate NY we get a lot of snow.
These are all great ideas to do during the Fall. I would add watch some scary movies, haha. I always love the October scare fest that goes on tv during that month. Here in Phoenix, we still have to wait for our crisp evening air, but it is finally getting a little cooler.
We have our fall cub scout campout coming up in a few weeks. I’m hoping we get some of that fall weather here so we can do some of these, such as enjoy the crisp (not humid and hot) weather, go for hikes, and maybe have some yummy fall treats around the fire.

These are all such great ideas! My favorite is going for a hike in the woods. This is defintely my favorite time of the year for that, as the weather is starting to cool down and I can really enjoy the change of the season.
I love your list. I especially love to read uplifting books and watching my favorite shows
Reading an uplifting book is fantastic for me. I also like to shop. 😉

This is a great post, especially for those of us who deal with anxiety and battle with mental health. Great suggestions and new ideas for this season!
Great list! I think the best activity to do is to make some leaf art! It does make sense as there’s tons of leaf which you can either dry or preserve. Make it as decor!
These are all such fun ideas and perfect for fall. I am all about cozy things!
