The cozy clothes, the fresh scent in the air, the misty chill first thing in the morning, the warm and comforting food and drink. Fall is one of the most loved times of the year. And, if you’re not a die-hard fan of fall, there’s a very good chance you know someone who is! But is there something deeper than the sweaters and the pumpkin spice lattes that makes people downright obsessed with this season?
According to psychology experts, there are several reasons why autumn is the most favoured time of the year. Let us break it down for you:
- With the kids going back to a new school year, many people view fall as the time for a fresh start. The past is behind us and we look forward to brighter and better things with a chance to reset, and a renewed sense of motivation.
- Fall brings a sense of routine back into our lives. Generally-speaking, humans love routine. The lazy, less predictable schedules of summer are long gone, and autumn brings a natural return to routine that many of us crave.
- Fall weather is typically really lovely. The stifling heat of the summer is a thing of the past, and the bone-chilling cold of the winter isn’t yet upon us, so the cooler autumnal temperatures create the perfect environment, not to mention scenery, for getting outside in nature. Autumnal walks through leafy parks also give us a great opportunity to get some exercise, which we already know is super beneficial for our physical and mental health.
- There are multiple holidays to look forward to in fall - Thanksgiving, Halloween, Diwali and Christmas are bright and fun celebrations with family and friends. These holidays can also evoke feelings of nostalgia, which is the perfect way to create anticipation and excitement for this time of year.
