We have come up with seven different ways to be able to take time to enjoy yourself, they may be small, but they will replenish and nourish your soul. Check them out below!
1. Get a new coffee mug
There is no better way to start off a new day than with your daily hot drink in a mug, especially a new one! The weather has started to change which equals cooler weather is coming and what goes hand in hand with cool weather? You guessed it – a brand new mug with a nice warm drink. Now is the time to take a few minutes for yourself to properly set up your day!
2. Treat yourself to a Gift Card from Novadab
A new season means new outfits and new outfits means new fashion accessories to match! Whether you need a new watch to make sure you’re on time to all your new tasks, a new scarf to stay cozy during those chilly fall mornings and evenings or a fabulous new piece of jewelry to perfect your outfit you can find them all at Novadab. You can now get a gift card for yourself OR your loved one.
3. Get your nails done
One of the best ways to finish off the perfect Autumn ensemble is with a beautiful new manicure. It also a really fun way to relax and take some time for yourself. You can have fun, bright colors to accent your fantastic outfits or go with a more muted, neutral look so that it can match whatever style you feel like for that day. There is nothing like someone else pampering you!
4. Try a new recipe
When the season changes it is a great time to try something new, for instance cooking a new recipe. During the busy summer you don’t always have extra time to do something new, so it’s your good old standby meals day after day. Now that it is fall, you can try your hand at those recipes that you have been saving for a rainy day. If you have experimented with a new meal for dinner and still want to keep going, why not add a baked good for dessert?!
5. Get a new handbag
Do you need a new purse to carry all your Fall items? Of course, you do! There are so many options to choose from such as a messenger bag, backpack, satchel, crossbody or tote. Fall means warm colors are back in style such as golds, browns and caramels so why not buy something that will bring you all the way into the new year. There is nothing like completing your fall outfit with a new autumn toned bag!
6. Get Outside
Autumn means the leaves are changing, the weather is glorious, and it is time to get outside for a walk. Soon the weather will be too cold to enjoy a walk outside without too many layers so why not start now? Getting outside not only means enjoying the weather but also getting exercise which can help both your physical health and mental health.
7. Read a new book
If everyone else is going back to school other than yourself, a great way to do so from home is to pick up a new book. Whether it is a self-care book, a historical non-fiction, or a mystery novel, every kind of book can improve your mood and build on your education. In the Fall there are so many times where all we want to do is curl up with a new book and enjoy some good reads.
