Simple Indulgences for Autumn

By Susie Cortright

During this hectic time of year, it's vital to take some

time each day to simply enjoy your life and your family.

Here are a week's worth of ideas, especially for autumn.

Day One

Grab a friend and set out for a brisk autumn hike in the

prettiest area you can think of within a few minutes

of your home. On your walk, make an agreement with your

friend to neither gossip nor complain. See what new

conversations arise under these guidelines.

Day Two

Invite over your next-door neighbor for hot-mulled

cider. Need a recipe? Here's a good one:

Day Three

Buy three copies of your favorite novel. Give one copy

to your best friend, one to your mother, and one to your

mother-in-law. You'll trigger an interesting book

discussion (or an enriching tradition of book-swapping).

Day Four

Treat yourself to a fall flower arrangement, complete

with vibrant shades of red, yellow, and orange. Set the

arrangement on your desk, windowsill, or kitchen table--

wherever you're sure to see it throughout the day.

Day Five

This evening, gather your family and decide on one

charity that you will sponsor this holiday season. Each family

member can brainstorm ways that they can personally raise funds or put aside

a few resources for the cause.

Day Six

Take out a simple piece of paper and tell a relative - whom you don't expect to

see during Thanksgiving - all the reasons that you are grateful for him or her. Mail it.

Day Seven

Challenge yourself to offer a sincere compliment to each

person you speak with today. Work on weaving the kind words

into each conversation. Such a habit will transfer a

feeling of goodwill to everyone around you, and it may

help you overcome shyness. After all, now you've always

got something to say!

Now make up your own simple indulgences and bring the magic of the season

to your every day.
