Anxious About Autumn?

simple tips and healthy hacks to enjoy your this part of the year


So it happened. Autumn is officially here. The weather is still warm and sunny with the temperatures peaking on average at 25 degrees in Northern Italy but you cannot deny that Italian’s long, hot summer is already over even if none of my friends want to admit this.

The world outside my house seems to transform in a magical garden with colorful leaves and delicious flavor of roasted chestnuts in the air makes me fall in love with this season. This autumn vibe actually inspired me to create a beautiful reality and cozy atmosphere for this Autumn

Thoughts Create Reality & Cozy Atmosphere Creates An Autumn Vibe

Reality is truly subjective because we create it with the power of our thoughts. What we think or feel manifests in real-life events. In other words, if we think in negative terms we will most probably get negative results because negative thoughts attract negative energy into our lives.

Whereas if we intentionally focus our mental energy on thinking in positive terms we can easily attract positive things, people, event and experiences into our lives. That’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Sounds like magic but it’s science or more precisely quantum physics. Of course, I am not saying that you can control everything in life with the power of your thoughts because some things just happen without our input. But you can always choose how to respond to things you cannot control and make everything work to your advantage. 

So what autumn reality are you creating for yourself? Are you using your energy to create a pleasant autumn experience or you’re self-sabotaging your happiness and wellbeing comparing autumn to summer? Are you using your potential to enjoy the autumn season? You’re not sure how to do it? Here are my favorite tips, tricks, and hacks to slow down and make the most of autumn. Enjoy!
