40 Things To-Do This Autumn

Autumn is definitely my favourite season of all! I personally love the changing leaves and the cosy clothes I bury myself in. Not to mention, the idyllic evenings, watching movies with a blanket and hot chocolate. Our autumn to-do lists may be restricted this year, but these 40 activities are everything you can do to soak in the autumn feels.

And the Leaves Came Tumbling Down


I know this blog is a bit late now we’re in December and Christmas is all around, but I thought I would share my autumn journal page before my Christmas one comes along. Journalling is one of my favourite hobbies, it is so relaxing and therapeutic to gather some autumnal images and crafts to wrap up the season!

I haven’t been journalling for a very long time, so this may not look as good as some journals but hopefully I’m getting better than when I first started aha.

I saw a quote about always keeping a journal in your pocket and I tried this recently. I wrote down all my ideas and notes, and it really helps keep motivation and happiness all day long. (Letting go of negativity onto paper, really took it off my shoulders) Definitely recommend you try this for a week, at least! Although once it’s secure in your pocket, it will follow you around…

“Writing in a journal reminds you of your goals and of your learning in life. It offers a place where you can hold a deliberate, thoughtful conversation with yourself.”

– Robin Sharma

Thank you so much for reading, see you soon!
