7 Fun Fall Activities to Keep You Busy and Out of Your Own Head*

Posted 10-04-2022 at 05:20 AM by zerojack


Fall is a season of change. The world shifts from vibrant greens to warm yellows and oranges, bringing with it an onslaught of activities that help us transition into the coming cold months. It’s also peak time for depression among those who struggle with the decrease in daylight and increase in stressors that come with fall.

If you find yourself feeling blue this fall, don’t shy away from it. Instead, use these activities as a method of self-care and a way to get back into your own head after a long summer filled with social media, vacationing, and general overexposure to everyone else’s lives.

There are many ways in which we can embrace the changing seasons without letting them overwhelm us; by rediscovering our passions, exploring new hobbies, or finding new strategies for coping with negative thoughts and feelings.

Here are 10 fun fall activities that will keep you busy and out of your own head all season long!


Go hiking
Hiking is a great fall activity. You can go hiking in any season, but autumn hiking is particularly stunning, with leaves changing color and the crisp autumn air. Hiking is a great way to get some fresh air, get in some exercise, and take time to yourself. And if you live in a place where there are plenty of hiking trails, hiking can be an affordable activity as well.

Hiking is a particularly great activity for people who want to spend time outside but are not interested in competing in sports or playing a particular game. It’s something that almost anyone can do and it’s a great way to be outdoors without having to be super active.


Watch a scary movie marathon
When autumn rolls around, it’s very common for people to start craving horror movies. And for good reason! There’s something about autumn that brings out the spooky and scary in people, regardless of whether there are leaves on the trees or not.

What better way to get in the autumn spirit than to binge-watch a scary movie marathon? It’s a great opportunity to bring your friends together and spend some time together while indulging in your fall cravings.

And, if you have young kids, you can even watch a scary movie with them and have a family night in. It’s an activity that is both low-key and cheap, making it a great way to spend some time with your friends or family while enjoying the autumn season.


Volunteer
If you live in a place where the weather is warm year-round, volunteering is still a great fall activity. Even though fall is when the leaves change color, it’s also a time when people who can’t afford to travel to warmer places are looking for ways to stay busy.

Volunteering your time during the fall is a great way to get out of your head and into the world. It’s a great way to meet new people and learn more about different causes and ways that you can help the world. And the hours that you put in don’t have to be just during the day – volunteering is a great way to meet people at any time of day, including weekends.


Write in a journal
Journaling is a great fall activity. It’s something that can be done inside on a rainy day, or outside on a sunny day with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa. Journaling can help you get in touch with yourself, and it’s a great way to express your thoughts and feelings and process what you’re feeling.

If you’re feeling particularly dark, journaling is a great way to get some things off your chest without having to talk to anyone about them. Journaling can also be a great tool for self-exploration, helping you to discover parts of yourself that you might not have realized were there.

If journaling isn’t something you’ve ever tried before, it might feel scary at first, but it’s a great way to spend some time getting to know yourself better.


Create art
If you’ve always wanted to be able to paint or draw but aren’t sure where to start, now’s the time to pick up a paintbrush or a sketchbook and start creating! We all have artistic abilities, even if you don’t think you do.

Creating art is a great way to get in touch with your creative side, and even if you don’t consider yourself creative, you can probably still create something. There are tons of different ways to create art, whether you want to paint on canvases or use crayons to draw on a sketchbook. You can create art with friends, or you can do it by yourself.

It’s a great way to get in touch with your creative side and create something you can keep for years to come.


Take up a sport or join a gym
Autumn is a great time to start a new sport or activity. It’s not as hot as the summer, and you can still enjoy yourself both indoors and outdoors. If you’ve always wanted to learn to play a sport, this is a great time to start.

You have time to practice and get better before the season ends, and you might even have time to compete in some smaller events! If you don’t have time to commit to a sport, many gyms offer short-term memberships during the fall, winter, and spring when people are less likely to go to the gym.

It’s a great way to get yourself active and moving again, even if you’ve been less active during the summer months.


Visit a spa or get a massage
Spas are usually warm and cozy in the fall, which makes them the perfect place to relax and decompress from the busy fall season. Treat yourself to a nice day at the spa and decompress from the stress of the season.

If you’re feeling particularly stressed, a massage is a great way to relax and unwind. It’s also a great way to reconnect with yourself and get in touch with your emotions. If you’re someone who often feels overwhelmed, a massage is a great way to reset your brain and calm down. And if you can, try to get a massage with a friend or loved one.

It’s a great way to spend time with someone while also reaping the benefits of a massage.


Conclusion
Fall is a season of change, and that change can be a stressful time. These activities will help you cope with the new season and will keep you busy and out of your own head. Go hiking, watch a scary movie marathon, or create art. Volunteer, write in a journal, or take up a sport or join a gym. Visit a spa or get a massage or create art. Whatever you do, make sure to enjoy the fall season and all the changes it brings.
