Although summer does have its beauty, that doesn’t mean that autumn shouldn’t be welcomed. That’s why we here at Luna London are detailing how to effectively celebrate the changing seasons in order to make the most of autumn this year.
Read on for our personalized how-to on how to get ready for shorter days and chilly nights… and, of course, how to love every moment of it!
Make a List of All of Autumn’s Delights
Letting go of summer with grace starts with acknowledging what you love about autumn.
This will differ from person to person. However, some of our favourites include:
- Picking out pumpkins
- Enjoying seasonal treats at our go-to restaurants or coffee shops
- Seeing the leaves go crisp and golden-brown
- The gentle thrumming of rain on the windows
- How refreshing an autumn breeze is
Noting these small wonderments down on paper will help you confirm to yourself that there is a lot to look forward to, even if you’re a little wistful about summer fading away!
Restock Your Candle Collection
When you begin to stay indoors more, having a space that you cherish is crucial… and having a candle collection you adore is one of the best ways to achieve that.
Candles have the capacity to be meditative, healing, and even transformative. They can improve our mood and help keep us centered on the things in our lives that truly matter, rather than dwelling in negative emotions.
For autumn, we love both the warming Earth-Scented Candle and the robust Chai-Scented Candle. Spiced scents like these can mimic the feeling of curling up in front of a roaring fireplace with our favourite book and a cup of tea.
Capitalize on Autumnal Teas
Speaking of teas, what Fall season is complete without a cup of chai tea in hand?
Originating in India well over 5000 years ago, chai tea is made of black tea from the Assam region. On top of being delicious, this gently-flavoured tea is also commonly used in Ayurvedic healing practices thanks to its strong anti-inflammatory benefits. There are few things as relaxing as holding a cup of chai between your hands.
Chai tea is deeply aromatic, and can be a soothing addition to any cool autumn day. Mix with a splash of milk for the ultimate comfort drink!
What Are You Looking Forward to This Autumn?
Fall has so many delights in store for us, both hidden and right in front of our eyes. Rather than mourning summer’s blazing beauty, we instead encourage you to look forward to your cheeks turning ruddy in nippy air, in curling up under your covers as the moon bids you an early goodnight, and in meditating with your favourite autumnal scents swirling around you.
Peace comes in so many forms, and autumn is one of them.
