Things to Do This Fall

Summer is almost over and soon the seasons will be changing. Fall is a beautiful season that is perfect for outdoor activities, spending time with friends and family, and indulging with our favorite meals. While autumn is a lovely time of year, it can be hard to cope during the holidays after the loss of a loved one. Here are 5 things to do this fall to ease the pain.

Spend Time with Family and Friends

Getting together with people who love you will always lift your spirits. Enjoy good food and the company of those who care about you. If this is a loss shared with them, it is a great time to exchange stories and reminisce about your loved one who has passed. During this season, people feel a greater sense of togetherness. You can expect invitations to events and for people to call just to say hello.

Help Others

Fall is the beginning of the season of giving which means there are many charitable causes that need volunteers. You can choose from volunteering at homeless shelters or soup kitchens, donating to food banks, providing blankets to the homeless, or donating to toy drives. No matter what charitable cause you choose to support, you will feel good about your choice to help others.

Take a Long Drive

Take in the beauty of fall with a long drive through the countryside. You won’t regret seeing the colorful arrangement of leaves and having time to yourself. Driving alone is therapeutic and often leads to self-reflection and the exploration of your emotions.

Do Something You Love

Whether you’re a baker or football fan, take advantage that one of your favorite activities is finally in season. Enjoy watching a game with friends, learn a new fall favorite recipe, people watch at the park, or create fall-themed crafts. Get into the spirit of the season and use your hobbies to connect with others.

Visit Their Grave

Bring fall-themed flowers to your loved one’s grave and take the opportunity to talk to them. Express your feelings about enduring the holidays without their presence. You can also use this opportunity to talk about your family, changes in your life since your last visit, and share your favorite fall memories.

Be a Kid Again

There’s something about autumn that brings out the kid in all of us. Decorate your house for Halloween, jump in a pile of leaves, enjoy candy that’s far too sweet, watch your favorite scary movie or go to a fall festival. Awakening your youthful spirit is sure to make you smile.
