Fall is our favorite. And part of its allure is how fleeting it is. You can easily blink and miss it. If you put your head down and bury yourself in your work or get one bad cold that follows you around for too long, you’ll wonder where it went. And the truth is, the closer we get to the end of Daylight Savings Time, the rainier it gets and the more wintry the days become. Once that happens on the first Sunday in November, our sweet sunshine hours grow shorter and shorter. But instead of complaining about how quickly it goes by, let’s make the most of it while it’s here. Let’s GET OUTSIDE.
If it’s a brisk fall day cold enough that you need the warmth, grab your Soma Brew Bottle and prepare yourself a hot pour over or fill your Soma Ceramic Mug with hot water and lemon or your favorite tea. And don’t forget your regular Soma bottle for keeping up the hydration throughout the day.
Hike, Walk, Stroll. Maybe it’s a mountain within driving distance, or some hills that you can get to by train, or even a park in the middle of an urban center -- just find a trail, and get trekking! You can even just walk around your neighborhood or take a morning stroll (sometimes early mornings are even better because the world is still quiet and there’s fewer people in your path!)
Or run run run! If you’re one of the 60 million Americans who loves running then get up and at it before you’re back on the treadmill and in front of a screen. There will be plenty of time for that during the long winter.
Go for a Ride. Riding a bicycle when you’re not dripping with sweat in the summertime is truly lovely. Of course it’s an excellent mode of transportation (zero carbon footprint!) but sometimes just going for a ride with no destination is the absolute best. You never know where you’ll end up!
Eat al Fresco. Pack some delicious eats, a blanket, wear a warm sweater, and bring a book. Or tell your friends to bring their blankets and arrange a potluck picnic or a backgammon tournament under the trees.
Whatever you do, enjoy yourself and be sure to stay hydrated. Before you know it, you’ll be forced indoors by snow and freezing temperatures. So make the most of fall before it’s too late! #winteriscoming
