There is nothing in nature that blooms all year long, so don't expect yourself to do so either.

We all have our days when we feel on top of our game, and ready to conquer the world.
We also have those days when something feels off, and we don't feel like ourselves.
We also have some days when nothing goes right, and we just want to curl up in our beds and cry.

And it's all okay. And self care plays an important role in that.

Self care is basically meant to fuel us, to improve our physical and mental health, and to literally care for ourselves and our wellbeing. It is vital for our happiness in all seasons, but I know that a lot of people love summer, and then when autumn comes they don't really like it and feel "depressed" (not like an actual mental illness, but more of a temporary feeling) and want something to cheer them up and to improve their mood.

In this article I included a lot of activities to put you in the fall mood and make you happy, but there are many things you can do in all seasons. Try to do each one atleast once if possible. Also make sure you do atleast one self care action a day, they don't have to be from this list tho. If you keep doing it every day, your health and happiness will improve drastically!!

This took a longer turn than I expected, so without further ado, let's begin with the actual purpose of the article :)
