Don't hide out just because the days are getting shorter and colder. Depression levels peak in the fall with the busy stressful holiday season, lack of vitamin D, and supposed lack of things to do. Don't let it get you down this year. here's some ideas of what you can do to keep busy this season.
1.) Go on a lunch date - try something new!
2.) Take a Hike - Fall is perfect hiking season! No bugs and its not too hot. Just be cautious of the changing weather, shorter daylight hours and slippery terrain. Wear some Orange just in case.
3.) Go Hunting - Not into killing things? Shoot them with your camera instead.
4.) Game Night - Find a Board Game and Get together face to face with some friends for a LOL good time.
5.) Christmas Shopping - Get it done early for a change and save the stress! Bonus Points if you handmake something yourself or buy an experience instead of an material item (ski hill passes, movie tickets, etc.)
6.) Catch some waves - Lake Superior puts on quite the show this time of year.
7.) Do some Baking - it'll warm your soul and your home :)
8.) Get Healthy - join a gym class or start a new routine. Jumpstart your new years resolution and be healthy and happy through the season changes. Enjoy that Christmas feast guilt free!
9.) Get Creative - Pick up a brush, or brush up on your music lessons. Find your inspiration, visit a gallery or concert.
10.) Find a good Book - Nothing beats curling up with a page turner you don't want to put down on those chilly nights. Turn off the Netflix and Keep your brain active instead.
