As the frenzy of late summer and early fall begin to subside we are enjoying more time with friends as we feast together on delicious turkey and hearty soups. Last weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving with special friends and our zealous imbibing in various drinks resulted in some rather grand plans for the upcoming year of which I will share with you soon!
And despite the feasting and festivities that this season has brought I've managed to carve out some time for regular exercise. I am no exercise maniac but I do find that regular exercise is especially healthful for me at this time of year. You see, while there are many things about autumn that I am fond of, I have a difficult time adjusting to the shortening days of autumn and winter. During this time of year I tend to struggle with feelings of anxiety and sadness. Thankfully it seems that exercise makes a significant difference in boosting my mood and I am grateful that I am able to set some time aside for exercise this year.
I would love to hear how you and your family are enjoying the autumn season right now. Have you started raking piles of leaves for your children to jump in? Are you enjoying those juicy fall apples? I am curious to find out!
