20 Fun Fall Activities

I promise this is my last fall blog post. Maybe. Probably. I just love fall so much! Lame, I know.

One of the best things about fall is all the fun activities that come with it. The weather may be getting colder, but that is no reason to spend the next few months inside. There are lots of awesome (and cheap) things that you can do outside during fall!

Don’t worry – there are inside activities too. I love spending time inside on a cold, dark evening, especially if I have a mug of hot chocolate.

Here are 20 fun fall activities.

  1. Go for a walk through a forest or a wood as the leaves change color.
  2. Go apple picking.
  3. Go to a fall festival with someone you love.
  4. Visit a pumpkin patch.
  5. Carve pumpkins.
  6. Make something with pumpkin in it. (My personal favorites are pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie.)
  7. Bundle up warm and go to kick leaves in your local park.
  8. Go to a corn maze with your friends or family.
  9. Visit a spooky fairground.
  10. Fly a kite with your children (or nephews and nieces).
  11. Light some candles or the fire and watch a movie during a cold evening.
  12. Make toffee apples.
  13. Make homemade soup.
  14. Pick pinecones.
  15. Eat breakfast in bed (mostly because it is far too cold to eat it at the table).
  16. Make a scarecrow.
  17. Make mulled wine.
  18. Make warm apple cider.
  19. Go antiquing.
  20. Go to a haunted house.

10 Reasons To Love Fall

Fall is my favorite season; I love the colorful fallen leaves and the drop in temperature. I also really, really love Halloween! I can’t wait to start carving pumpkins and planning a Halloween party. I’ve never been the best at dressing up, but I plan on going all-out this year!

Here are 10 reasons to love fall.

  1. The leaves. The best part of fall is definitely the nature. I love watching the leaves turn red and brown and yellow, and listening to them crunch underneath my feat
  2. It is time to start drinking mulled wine again. I love mulled wine, it is the perfect seasonal drink!
  3. The sunsets. The sunsets in fall always seem to be the most beautiful and vivid.
  4. Fall television. I can’t be the only person who is looking forward to the return of the Walking Dead.
  5. Candles. I love lighting scented candles on cold evenings; they make your home feel cosy and they smell great.
  6. Halloween. Dressing up, going to parties with friends and family, candy – I love it all.
  7. Pumpkins. Pumpkin soup is one of my favorite soups. And carving pumpkins is always a lot of fun!
  8. Comfy clothes. Sweaters every day!
  9. The crisp, fresh air.
  10. Thanksgiving. I don’t actually live in America or Canada, but Thanksgiving does sound like an amazing holiday – the food looks so tasty.

Do you want to get promoted at work? Many people want to advance their career, and they will try many ways to move forward. From staying late at work to taking on weekend projects, they are happy to put in extra effort in the hopes they will be rewarded.

However, many people don’t think about one of the easiest ways to get a promotion – finding a mentor. A mentor can improve your skills and help you to create a career plan, but more importantly they can be totally honest about your skills. Sometimes we all need someone to point out any mistakes we could be making.

Here are 4 things you should look for in a mentor to make sure they are perfect for you.

1. They have power and influence in the area they mentor

If you are looking for a mentor to help you in a business career, ideally you would look to someone who worked in this field at a high level. They will have essential knowledge and will be well equipped to help you achieve your similar goals.

2. You (and others) respect them

Choose someone you like and respect to be your mentor – this should be a positive relationship, and you will be more willing to grow if you like and respect your mentor. Other people respecting them is simply a good indicator that your mentor is wise and reasonable.

3. They are willing to be tough

If a mentor can’t be tough with you, they can only offer you advice. It is likely you already have friends or family who would do so – a mentor should push you to achieve and be tough when you’re slacking, so you can grow and move forward.

4. They are invested in your success

If you’re actively looking to move forward and accomplish your dreams, a mentor who isn’t fully invested in helping you to achieve your dreams won’t help you – they’ll probably slow you down. Choose someone who is happy to invest time and effort into mentoring you.

Do you have a mentor, or are you a mentor to someone? When I was 17 I worked in a cupcake shop and my boss was like a mentor to me. I had just become interested in writing, and she helped me to find work and eventually start creating my portfolio. She was very helpful and just an all around nice person. Let me know about your experiences with mentoring!
