It’s September, dear introverts – my most favorite season of the year is back!
And of course, I’m celebrating the arrival of this beautiful season by drinking freshly made herbal tea, wearing fuzzy socks, and binge-watching my favorite Halloween themed tv show episodes. Have I already mentioned how much I actually love fall? 😉
As an introvert, fall is my most favorite season for two reasons:
I don’t have to feel guilty for staying inside
Firstly, people finally stop making us introverts feel bad for preferring to spend our time inside at home rather than outside in public places. The weather is getting colder every day, and pretty much no one actually enjoys cold temperatures. Therefore, wanting to stay inside all day long rather than walking around outside in the cold, especially while it rains, is socially acceptable. Love that!
People start to focus more on solo activities
And secondly, the people will start to rediscover the joy of indulging in solo activities like reading books, watching TV shows or movies, and playing video games 24/7 around this time of the year, which really takes away a lot of the pressure that society puts on people like us! It seems like people respect it more and don’t judge you for not wanting to socialize.
I feel a strong connection to the Fall season
Lastly, I love fall because September is my birth month, and I naturally feel very drawn to the Fall season.I’m also a sucker for all the Halloween related spooky things.👻 I also just love the overall color theme of this beautiful season. Earthy tones are my most favorite colors!
Here are some of my most favorite activities to make most of this Fall season:
How I make the most of the Fall season as an introvert
Even though Fall is really the most perfect season for introverts, I have also experienced very dull days and even weeks as an introvert during Fall. The key to making the most of the Fall season as an introvert? Balance & variation!
Get outside whenever the sun shines!
Going for walks during fall is by far one of the most beautiful things. I personally love seeing the brown leaves falling from the branches of the trees while watching the sun softly shine through them and creating this beautiful, unique atmosphere that just makes my heart happy.
The physical movement is the icing on the cake for me. It really helps me to maintain a happy mental state, and for someone who is naturally rather lazy, it is definitely great for my physical health to get outside on a walk as well. Under the compromise to only (or mostly) go for walks when the sun shines makes it less overwhelming for me. (And if you feel like it, you can still go outside on misty or rainy days as well. Personally, seeing the sun shine motivates me a lot more than rain.)
Get crafty or creative – or both!
For me, Fall is the perfect time to pick up old hobbies, get more skilled at current ones, and just to try out new things in general. The whole Fall vibe really gets me into this really wonderful creative headspace, and that’s why it makes even more fun for me to really create and try out new things around this time.
Need some ideas? I always collect and dry leaves from trees during Fall. 🍁 Often I will collect them when I’m on one of my walks that I just mentioned and decorate my room and my windows with them when they are dried.
Another thing I really want to do this Fall is getting better at drawing. I’m really into creating digital content and I would love to get started with creating digital art as well. I already did my first couple of tries around last Fall in 2019, but I want to get better at it. (I might be showing you my progress on my Instagram Stories and on my Patreon Page at some point!)
Is there something you can think of that you want to start doing during this Fall?
Why not bake something and try out new recipes!
I’m a huge fan of baking, and I do have my favorite recipes. But I also like to try new ones and be a little creative while putting them to the test. Last Fall, this is exactly how I discovered my iconic homemade cinnamon rolls recipe! >> Click here to check it out: Cinnamon rolls á la The German Introvert<<. I don’t have any baking-related goals for this Fall season, but I’ll definitely try to re-create a couple of chocolate cookie recipes! Are you in? Of course, I’ll be sharing with you my most favorite ones!
Go on a self-discovery journey with yourself
If you follow me on my Instagram Stories, you know that I’m a huge fan of journaling. I love it so much, and it has been so beneficial to me in many ways! >>Click here to learn how to get started with intuitive journaling.<< It had helped go through many downs and negative feelings in the past and has been my outlet (positive and negative) whenever I needed it. But it also has been a place for growth, development, and reflection as well!
What I really love about journaling is that I can always grab it and just browse through the pages. Reading about past feelings and experiences allows me to gain new perspectives on things, reflect on my past behavior, and make better choices in the future. Fall seems to be the perfect season to go on a little self-discovery journey, don’t you think? Journaling for sure is one of the best ways to do that.
