There is something about this time of year that whispers change. The hints of cooler weather, shorter days, the anticipation of what Fall brings.
Here are three things helping me welcome the change.
Find Joy Even When Life Gets Busy Again
One of the pillars of this community is the importance of managing your mind when it comes to weight loss. Too often it’s put to the side in favor of a focus on meal plans and tracking your steps.
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World is a must-read for this reason. It’s all about living with joy even in our hard times.
The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu visit with each other for a week sharing laughter, hardships and their spiritual practices.
This book offers a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together.
It’s the perfect book as you ease (or jump!) back into a busier schedule in the coming months.
Stay (Skin) Hydrated as Temperatures Dip
When the evening temperatures start to dip while the days are still warm, my skin feels it. Anyone else?
I get these small “dry” patches and I feel it the most on my lips which is why I’m nothing short of obsessed with the coconut and pear lip balm from Burt’s Bees.
(And anything else for Burt’s Bees, if I’m being honest)
This 100% natural lip balm hydrates your lips with a sweet, light kiss of coconut oil and a hint of pear.
You’ll be reapplying it all day long – just like me.
Transition into Fall In Serious Style
Along with my skin taking a hit with the changing weather, I get cold but don’t want to carry a coat in the car or even a bulky sweater.
I like to transition into Fall while still wearing some of my summer favorites. This is why I have a bunch of kimonos from Lost in Layers.
You can easily pack it in your purse or keep in the car. Any of the colors or patterns instantly elevates any outfit and perfect for when it gets a tad chilly.
Everytime I wear one, someone stops to ask me where it’s from. They are the best.
