30 Fall Self-Care Ideas to Keep You Sane This Season

Fall is here, which means the holidays are right around the corner! With seemingly endless shopping and to-do lists, this can be a very stressful time of year. That means it’s more important than ever to make time for self-care!

I brainstormed a list of ways we can incorporate self-care into our schedule this autumn, even if we feel like we don’t have time at all. I hope you find this list helpful. I’ve been using some of the ideas I came up with to stay sane during this hectic season! (lol)

Here are 30 fall self-care ideas:

  1. Reorganize your wardrobe so you have easier access to fall colors and styles. Make sure it’s easy for you to find warm clothes to wear on chilly days!
  2. Clean out your closet by donating or selling the clothes you don’t wear anymore. Then, treat yourself to some cute new fall pieces!
  3. Write down your goals for the remainder of this year. Then, write down some goals you have for next year so you can plan for them and set yourself up for success.
  4. Set your alarm for 15 to 30 minutes earlier than the time you usually wake up. Use your new spare time for meditation, journaling, or other self-care activities.
