With the arrival of Autumn, as we begin to experience the beauty in the changing leaves and the crisp air that signifies the end of summer, it is essential to recognize how our bodies and mood states may adjust to the season’s change. Colorful leaves and bare tree branches make the changes in our external environment obvious, but our physical and emotional response to the change in seasons is usually much more subtle. Now is a great time to use this change in seasons, this change in the Earth’s energy, to move forward and into the new. Practicing mindfulness can provide us with simple and reliable strategies to enhance our life quality both now and in the future.

  • Slow down, quiet the mind, and rest
