As much as our mission as a company is to provide you with the tools and services to grow your practice and give you more time for the things you love, we also can’t help but chat about things outside of work. After all, as you very well know as a mental health professional, what you fill your time with outside of your practice informs your energy once you’re back in the office on Monday morning.
As a result, we thought we’d craft a fun little blog post about fall activities to fill your weekends. The Revitalized Therapist team is all about this autumn weather and apple cider, and we hope this inspires you to put on a flannel and treat yourself well! You deserve it.
1. Set the tone. Put on your coziest flannel and wool socks and channel all of those good autumn vibes.
2. Decorate your home and office. We firmly advocate for real pumpkins and corn stalks in your space, but you could just as easily mask up and go to Michael’s for a cheap decorating spree. We’re willing to bet you could get lost in there, though, so make sure you don’t have any engagements to follow!
3. Go to your local farmers’ market. Nothing says fall quite like bundling up and stocking your fridge with honeycrisp apples and apple cider donuts from your favorite local vendors.
4. Light some candles and snuggle in with a novel. Top it off with some apple cider and a fleece blanket, and you’ll be well on your way to revitalization.
5. Road trip to a small town “greasy spoon.” One of our favorite, but most unsuspecting, fall activities is hopping in the car and venturing to a small town mom and pop restaurant. Nothing says ‘cozy’ like homemade apple pie and a restaurant that feels an awful lot like mom’s kitchen.
6. Take in the vibrant autumn colors on a hike. Nothing is better for your spare time than getting your legs moving and soaking up some Vitamin D. The endorphins and the bright oranges and reds will certainly bring you a newfound source of energy.
7. Bake an apple pie. And while you’re at it, you might as well whip up some pumpkin bars, fruit cobblers, and apple cider! Turn your kitchen into a warm and cozy haven for an entire Saturday, and take note how rejuvenated you feel.
Ultimately, this blog post is your friendly reminder to take care of yourself just as much as you take care of your practice and your patients. Helping you avoid burnout is what we are all about, and we’d like to make sure we are thinking of that from each and every angle we possibly can. Please let us know how we can help you revitalize yourself and soak up the scarce few months of autumn.
