It’s the first day of fall—just in time to make some weekend plans to embrace the equinox.
Get outside a few times this weekend to celebrate this season of reflection and transformation.
Here’s just a few ideas for inspiration:
- Take a long evening walk to take in the close of the day. The equinox marks the time of year when day and night are the same length, so think about this when cultivating your own sense of balance.
- Celebrate the harvest season with a trip to the farmers’ market this weekend. Plan a meal around some of your favorite fall flavors that you can buy locally and organically.
- Focus on the foliage. Autumn is the season of change, so get out and witness nature’s vibrant transformation with a hike or a picnic amidst fiery fall colors.
- Take some time to reflect on the past year. Write down some things that you have accomplished since the start of 2011, and also write some goals or intentions to focus on in the final few months of the year.
You can learn about your own rhythms when you observe nature’s consistent and patient cadence—allowing your own sense of well-being to be in sync with each season.
