Why Is Fall The Best Season?
As the leaves begin to turn and the days grow shorter, some of us find ourselves feeling a little bit torn between joy over the fresh start of a beautiful new season and the tendency to be deeply reflective. Summer is over, winter is just around the corner, and we’re determined to squeeze every drop of beauty out of autumn.
On the strongly positive side, we have cooler temperatures and the amazing, vibrant colors of autumn. Whether it’s the deep reds, the bright yellows, or the electric oranges, the colors of fall are truly stunning. And they can have a profound effect on our moods, inspiring feelings of awe and motivation.
Overwhelmed overthinkers, this is your reminder to stop and smell the pumpkin spice — or maybe fresh apple cider if you prefer.
Take a break from that endless to-do list long enough to soak in the autumn colors. It’s easy to get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we forget to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. So this fall, let’s take a cue from nature and let the colors of the season inspire us to slow down, be present, and simply enjoy the show.
These colorful autumn quotes are a great inspiration to enjoy the autumn season, but they’re no substitute for actually getting out there and experiencing the colors in person. Make sure to take time this fall to go outside and savor the scenery and all of the gorgeous fall colors.
Here are a few ways to enjoy the changing colors:
- Weekend road trip
- Mountain hiking
- Train or bus color tours
- Quiet walks in the woods
- Long bike rides
- Strolling around the neighborhood
- Hot air balloon ride
Don’t forget your camera!
