Say goodbye to the hot days of summer and hello to the cool days of autumn. Indulge yourself in coziness when the crisp, colorful days of fall arrive this year. Whether you’re spending time alone or enjoying the company of others, keep reading to discover 10 ways that you can get cozy this fall.
01. Relax by the fireplace
An indoor or outdoor fireplace with flickering flames is an ideal place to sit down, relax, and get cozy on a cool autumn day or evening. Warm yourself by the fire and relax your mind and body.
02. Snuggle into an oversized armchair
Curl up in your favorite oversized armchair and enjoy the cozy tranquility. Read a book, take a nap, or just daydream your cares away.
03. Savor warm seasonal beverages
Indulge yourself in one of the simplest, but most satisfying, delightful fall treats — a warm mug of your preferred seasonal beverage. Pick out your favorite fall-inspired drink — pumpkin spice coffee, spiced apple cider, milk chocolate cocoa, spiced chai latte — and enjoy.
04. Pamper yourself with layered bedding
Snuggle down into your cuddly bed this fall when you outfit it with seasonal layered bedding. Choose flannel sheets, soft blankets, stylish quilts, and down-filled comforters to create the coziest of beds.
05. Make your home smell like an Autumn bakery
Make a visit to a local pumpkin patch or apple orchard to pick up some fresh yummies. Then snag a little flour and make a little magic as you turn your kitchen in to the perfect fall bakery. You can always make traditional items like apple and pumpkin pie but branch out a little and try something new. Not a cook? Visit a locally owned bakery and pick up something fresh.
06. Enjoy comfy outdoor dining
Alfresco dining on a cool fall evening is a seasonal treat, especially when you have an outdoor heater available to keep you nice and cozy. Take advantage of comfy outdoor dining, whether at home or your favorite restaurant.
07. Share a stadium blanket
Get outside to watch your favorite local or professional sports team this fall, but don’t forget a cozy stadium blanket to keep you warm. Share your blanket with a friend and enjoy the game together.
08. Knit Something warm and cozy
This is the season for big, soft, cozy and warm. From pillows and sweaters to scarves and cardigans. Knitting is not only relaxing but you’ll love the feeling of wearing something you created.
09. Soak up the sunshine
Make it a point to bask in the warm sunshine on a sunny autumn day. The solar heat is sure to provide a cozy feel even when the weather is a bit nippy.
10. Snuggle up with a good book
As the chill hits the grass with soft layers of frost it’s the perfect time to snuggle up and escape with a good book. If you are searching for something new we encourage you to start with a locally owned bookstore first.
11. Delight in an outdoor firepit
An outdoor firepit not only supplies a warming coziness, but also provides an opportunity for some fun. Toast marshmallows, roast hot dogs, sing campfire songs, and enjoy the company of your friends.
12. Brisk walk in the fresh air
Grab a comfortable pair of shoes, a warm, long sweater and take a walk. A great place to start is in your neighborhood but local parks are a great way to change the scenery and explore a little further. From beautiful falling leaves to the changing colors of Autumn. Grab a warm drink from a local coffee house to help enhance your journey.
13. Bundle up in snug clothing
Cooler fall temperatures offer a chance for you to pull out your snug clothing. Get cozy in your flannel shirts, down-filled vests, soft corduroy pants, and leather boots.
14. Unwind in a cozy glow
Light a few candles and let yourself unwind in the cozy glow created by their flickering flames. Lit candles help to provide a soothing environment that you can enjoy.
15. Visit a remote abode
Get cozy at a local cabin or lodge in your county or visit a surrounding county. It doesn’t have to be hours away to enjoy sitting outside on the back porch of a cabin. It’s a great way to escape life and relax a little.
16. Embrace positivity
What a perfect time to unwind and detox away from the negative. Turn off the news, stay away from your social media feed and avoid those friends and family that tend only to be toxic. You’ll be surprised how much this one thing alone can help your life become more cozy and relaxed. Add it to any or all of the things listed above and, WOW!
Choose your favorite ways to get cozy this fall from the above-listed items. Simple pleasures, like sipping a big mug of spiced cider or relaxing by a warm fireplace are sometimes the best ways to enjoy a snug, cozy feel on a crisp fall day.
