As the months get colder and darker, it’s easy to feel sad about losing a bit of sun and warm weather.
As someone who loves Summer, I hate it when I have to put away my Summer dresses and choose warm Autumn and Winter outfit choices.
However, there is so much to love in this season- and just because the days are darker, it doesn’t mean you have to feel sad!
In this blog post, I’ve come up with 5 tips to stay positive as it gets darker, finding a few ways to enjoy the cooler months.
1. Get as much light as possible
As the days get darker, it can feel like everything is dark and low.
To stay positive as it gets darker, try and get as much light as possible! Get out and about whenever the sun is out, and make the most of daylight hours.
If you’re working all day during the week, make the most of your weekends to enjoy the cool, crisp and (occasionally) sunny Autumn days.
2. Focus on the positives
There are so many positives to this time of year. Nothing beats that cosy feeling of wrapping up in a jumper, pouring a cup of tea and reading a good book.
Autumn and Winter are full of exciting things, and it’s a great time to really cherish those evenings in.
I love those days when you have an excuse to stay inside, and you can just chill with the heating on full blast or catch up on some reading.
3. Do what you love
During the darker months, it’s inevitable that some of us will feel a bit down- so try and do what you love whenever you can.
See friends, enjoy your favourite indoor activities and take time for yourself.
If you tend to get a bit down at this time of the year, be kind to yourself and don’t pressure yourself to be happy or perfect all the time.
4. It won’t last forever
In the UK, the seasons run like clockwork. Although we might not have the warmest Summers, during the Winter you always know that Spring and Summer are on the horizon soon!
A great way to stay positive in the darker months is to remember that nothing lasts forever.
Soon enough, you’ll be back to wearing Summer outfits and staying outside until late.
5. Enjoy it!
There are lots of things to enjoy about darker nights, even when you’re out and about.
If you like Halloween, the dark is perfect for this spooky season. Instead of feeling down about the darker months, enjoy what they have to offer!
