We can't say this enough but self-care is so important. It keeps you in touch with yourself and reminds yourself of what it’s like to be taken care of correctly. That’s why we follow a strict self care routine to keep our mindset right and my connection with ourselves strong.

So let's get started with the Autumn Self Care Ideas you can use to stay in the fall spirit while practicing self-care.
1. Make a Tasty Fall Recipe
Self-care and food just go hand and hand for me. I love food and when I eat I feel happy haha so to be one of the best ways to practice self-care is to put my chef hat on and try a fun and tasty recipe.
Our favorite fall recipes so far are:
2. Have a Warm Fall Beverage and Relax
Hate to sound "basic" but a pumpkin spiced latte or hot chocolate along with my favorite tv show sounds pretty amazing right about now. Something about warm beverages and being curled up in bed just screams self-care and fall.
3. Do Some Fall Decluttering
Usually, it’s spring cleaning but oh well let’s call this fall decluttering. You can spend part of your day organizing and decluttering your space. It may not sound like self-care but TRUST ME you will thank yourself when your space is organized and you can finally find things you’re looking for. Not all self-care is bubble baths and hot chocolate sometimes the best way to care for yourself is good old-fashioned decluttering and cleaning. We are in the process of organizing our whole home so our minds can be clearer. We're going room by room finding the best ways to productively organize our space.
4. Paint Your Nails Fun Fall Colors
Fall colors are awesome especially for beauty and what better way to be in the fall spirit than to paint your nails fun fall colors. We love the deep reds, burnt oranges, and neutral brown colors for our nails – you can always find some beautiful color combinations with fall colors.
5. Take a Fall Themed Bubble Bath
So obviously bubble baths and self-care are like a happily married couple but have you ever had a fall-inspired bubble bath? Fall scents and colors are so relaxing and are bound to take your generic bubble bath to the next level.
Here are some awesome things to add to your bubble bath environment to make it more in line with fall:
Pine Cones as Decor
Candles (our favorite is pumpkin spice or fallen leaves)
Bath Bombs or Steamers
Fall Wine (yes this is a thing!)
6. Carve a Pumpkin
We know we’re grown but seriously it’s fall, Halloween is around the corner and what the hell pumpkins are festive haha. It really is therapeutic to sit down with a glass of wine and carve a pumpkin and it makes for a nice decorative piece. Sounds like a win win to us!
7. Practice Fall Makeup Looks
We LOVE fall makeup. Everything is so dramatic and beautiful. It’s really therapeutic to create a new makeup look and it makes you feel beautiful so why not?
8. Update Your Fall Wardrobe
It definitely gets a wee bit cooler around the fall so that means it’s time to swap out the shorts and crop tops and trade them in for comfy sweaters, jeans, and boots to stay cozy this fall. This just gives you an excuse to engage in some shopping self-care therapy haha. Don’t go overboard (says our frugal side) but a little shopping won’t hurt. Plus buying things you look good in boosts your confidence and your mood so shop away.
9. Use a Moisturizing Face Mask
One thing fall does do is dry out your skin. It’s something about the coolness in the air that causes dry lips and peeling skin and trust me it is not fun. The best way to combat this is by doing a moisturizing face mask. What we love about face masks is they make you feel pampered and your skin feels great afterward so they are a perfect addition to a self-care day.
10. Go On a Relaxing Walk and Take In the Fall Air
Oh yes, a nice brisk walk through all the fall leaves is bound to boost your mood a d really take your self-care day to the next level. So take the dog (or cat if you walk your cat lol) and go on a lovely 10-15 minute walk and just enjoy nature and the beauty in this world and the season changes to fall. It’s good exercise, a good way to practice mindfulness, and a good way to boost your energy so why not incorporate a relaxing walk In your fall self-care routine.
