Fall for De-Stressing Activities this Season

October is ending, November is beginning. Speaking as a Senior undergrad student, nobody knows better than me how stressful the middle of the semester can get. Due dates seem to pile up, Christmas break is light years away, and stress levels can get escalated quickly. It can seem hard to try to find time to de-stress your brain and your body, but this time of year is the PERFECT season to find healthy fun ways to cool down. The fall season is full of beautiful scenery, crisp breezes, and many different activities that can help any stressed out college student calm down, breathe, and have a little fun. Here is a list of different fall activities that can help de-stress your mind and help you enjoy the fall season a little more:

  1. Play a game of two-hand touch football
  2. Go for a hike
  3. Go for a hayride
  4. Tailgate at a MSU football game
  5. Run a race
  6. Take a drive in the country
  7. Drink some hot spiced cider
  8. Carve a pumpkin
  9. Go with some friends to a haunted house
  10. Watch your favorite Halloween movie
  11. Go to a corn maze
  12. Go apple-picking
  13. Collect colorful fall leaves
  14. Jump in a pile of leaves
  15. Buy winter squash and Brussels sprouts at a farmer’s market
  16. Roast some fresh vegetables
  17. Give out candy to trick o’ treaters

Living a healthy life is not just about eating nutritious foods or exercising, it is about ensuring that you are taking care of your body in every single way. The stress that college students endure can get intense, therefore fun, relaxing, de-stressing activities are necessary. These activities can help give your brain, body, and emotions a break and promote better quality of life.
