How To Prepare For and Enjoy The Autumn Season

"How do I make autumn more fun?"

"Brrr. It's going to start getting cold. How do I prepare?"

"I need to create a plan for the upcoming fall season."

"What can I do that's different this autumn?"

No matter where you live, you have an intimate, ongoing relationship with your weather.

What happens outside affects you inside your home and inside your head. Consider how your life shifts as the seasons of the year phase in or out.

Take advantage of these seasonal changes to make each season special and unique in its own way.

Follow these four tips to help you enjoy the autumn season.

Prepare your home for the change in the weather.

It's wise to take care of tasks such as examining weather-stripping, storm windows and your heating system this time of year.

  • Look a few months ahead as you think about any preparations or repairs you might want to make to your home before the first cold fronts arrive. Being prepared brings you peace of mind and can avert a stressful crisis down the road.

What needs preparation?


Use special autumn activities to strengthen your family bond.

Spend a dinner out together or a family evening at home to plan things to do together in the autumn.

  • Make it even more enjoyable by allowing each of your kids to choose a favored autumn activity.
  • Whether you visit a local pumpkin patch for hot apple cider in late October or plan a drive to your closest national park to view the changing leaves, you can arrange to spend plenty of special autumn times together as a family.
  • Autumn's approach can be something for your family to look forward to together. Start new family traditions with fun autumn activities.

What special activities can you plan and do?


Engage your family in autumn menu planning.

Encouraging your children to take part in the planning of some delicious seasonal meals serves many purposes.

  • It's fun for the kids to have a choice in what the family eats. As parents, you have teaching opportunities about foods, nutrition, cooking, budgeting, and cultural diversity. So you can all look forward to preparing and enjoying the meal together.
  • Incorporate your children's ideas into your fall meal planning as a way to teach them about fall vegetables and healthy, flavorful eating.

What fall foods will you add to your menu?


Evaluate your moods as autumn sets in.

In the past, have you noticed specific changes in your moods as the leaves drop from the trees and the weather cools?

  • Do you feel relieved that the heat is dissipating for a spell? Or do you feel disappointed because there will soon be fewer hours of daylight and the weather will be getting cold?
  • Thinking about how the coming season will affect your mood is a smart thing to do in preparation for autumn's arrival. That way, you can be better prepared for any seasonal shifts in your emotions.

How's your mood?


Regardless of where you live, your life will be affected when autumn sets in.

Embrace the season with good planning will help you enjoy autumn.
