Just because the nights are drawing in doesn’t mean you have to hibernate. Keep your social calendar busy. Why not invite friends over for dinner or even a games night. Everyone loves Monopoly!
Breaks are much cheaper at this time of the year and you can get some great deals at home and abroad. How about renting a cottage in the Lake District and cosying up by the fire after a long walk? Or book a B&B at the beach and breathe in that bracing sea breeze.
Joining the gym (and actually using it!) will help you stay fit and healthy as the winter bugs do their rounds. You’ll meet people, feel good about yourself and there are often good deals to be had on membership before the New Year’s resolution rush in January!
Don’t skip your greens
Keep your vitamin intake up to stay healthy and avoid coughs and colds. Try out new recipes and eat plenty of fruit and veg. but also make sure you get out in the sunlight for some vitamin D. A brisk walk on your lunchbreak should do the trick.
Have a free day out
Check out what you can do in your local area for free. It could be something as simple as packing a Thermos for a walk in the woods or you might discover something fascinating at your local museum.
Celebrate the big events
Why not plan to do something with friends and family for the ‘big’ autumn events? Throw a Halloween party (you’re never too old for fancy dress!) and go to a fireworks display on bonfire night. Pop these events in your diary and you’ll have something to look forward to as the weather turns colder.
Don’t forget, during autumn the sun is low in the sky at morning and evening rush hours so keep a pair of sunglasses to hand as you drive around. Need a new pair for the season? Browse our great collection of designer sunglasses now.
