Fall is finally here, and now it is time to enjoy some fun seasonal activities! When the weather cools down, most people tend to become less active but is important to continue to get out and get moving at least a few times a week.
An Apple a day
Nothing says fall more than apple picking and bringing them home to make apple pie! If reaching the apples and bending to put them in the basket is too strenuous of an activity, don’t hesitate to ask a friend or a grandchild to go with you to help. Chances are they will love it just as much. This activity is a great way to enjoy the outdoors,exercise as you munch on a crisp apple!
Go for a walk
Perhaps there isn’t a close apple orchard, if not go for a walk and enjoy the weather before it gets too cool. Take in the blue sky and bright-colored leaves and bring a companion with you for an added bonus!
Decorate your front door
After you’ve visited the apple orchard and went for a walk, decorate your front door to get festive! Buy or make a wreath, set up a scarecrow or carve a pumpkin. Be as creative as you wish!
Go to the pumpkin patch
This fun fall activity is great to do with a companion or your grandchildren. After choosing a pumpkin you can help your grandchildren carve it and decorate for the upcoming Halloween festivities.
Enjoy the season from the comfort of your home
If the weather is too chilly, make apple cider, stay in touch with family and friends by writing letters or give them a call, build a fire and curl up with a good book or root for your favorite football team! Reading a good book is a great way to get mental stimulation by keeping your mind sharp and improving your memory.
