Autumn Self-Care Tips N' Tricks

Now that things are getting busy with classes and sports, it's so easy to forget about yourself and really take a break from the chaos. The cold weather has started to sink in and there's a whole new batch of fall activities to go do. Don't forget to take a few minutes for yourself this autumn with a few suggestions down below!

1. Make time for yourself!

Fall is when school and classes are getting back into full swing, and it's easy to forget to make time for yourself. Give yourself even just a half hour to do something you love, even if it's just going for a walk or reading a chapter in a book.

2. Spend time with people you love 

Spend as much time as you can with friends and family.

3. Try out a new hobby

4. Drink spiced cider.

Or mulled cider, or just fresh cider. You can't go wrong with any of them.

5. Bake with apples!

Make apple crisp or apple muffins, both are delicious.

6. Slow down and savor the moment 

It's all too easy to get caught up in everything that's going on in life, and it's easy to forget to just slow down and take a look around.

7. Enjoy warm pj's and socks 

Everyone loves fuzzy socks, you can't even argue.

8. Make a soup or stew 

When the weather is cold, nothing warms you up like a hot cup of soup.

9. Go to a Farmer's Market 

Support local! You can buy fresh produce for usually a cheaper price, plus it's a perfect excuse to take your next insta-photo.

10. Decorate pumpkins or make pumpkin bread

Who doesn't love carving or painting pumpkins? If baking isn't your thing, Starbucks has a pumpkin roll to die for!!

11. Write down what you want to let go of 

Now that the leaves are letting go of their trees, it's a sign for you to let go of whatever it is that's dragging you down.

12. Go on a nature walk or hike

Explore your local community and find a gorge to stroll through and take beautiful photos of the changing leaves. Or even just take a walk down Main Street and grab a coffee.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
