1.Create a fall-inspired photo shoot at home
There are so many creative ways how you can do a fall-inspired photo shoot at your home. A simple yet cute example - find some leaves, make a coffee that you could hold, find a cute corner at your home, and you are good to go.
How did I create these photos? I used the ''Dazz Cam'' app and a led pumpkin. In the app, there is an option where you can take 2 photos that will become as one. One photo I took of me posing, and in another one I was putting the led light from the pumpkin near to the camera which resulted in this red and orange effect.
Equipment: Tripod, and a led pumpkin.
There are many ways how you can get creative with this.
2. Try a 7-Day challenge
There are so many amazing challenges on Pinterest to try - a reading challenge, a photo challenge, a self-development challenge, etc. Whatever it is that you love or wish to do, there is a challenge out there for you to try and improve that certain thing or area of your life.
3. Make a fall-inspired drink or meal
One of the reason why my favorite season is Fall is because of the cozy evenings with hot drinks when it's raining outside, lighted candles with different fragrances, and how beautiful nature looks. I just love the whole vibe of it!
In this video, JLINHH shows 2 ways how you can make Pumpkin spice latte at home. She has also included a more affordable way how to make it, which is always great especially if you don't have all the ingredients at the moment or they are not available in your local store.

4. Decorate your home
Decorating home is so fun and you don't have to spend a lot of money to make it look cute and beautiful. As for Halloween decorations I have only two fake pumpkins and fake leaves that I use for 2 years straight and they still look cool and give me the Fall vibe. Don't feel guilty about re-using the same things, you can give them new purpose, and even add some creative sparkle that will make them look new.

Look up interesting places in nature and plan a trip to go there with your loved ones or by yourself. Spending time in nature can be so beneficial to your health and overall well-being.

6. Set one goal you want to achieve by the end of 2020
Set a small goal for yourself you would like to achieve by the end of 2020. Starting from a small goal such as reading 1 book or a goal that needs a lot more effort. The fact that this year has been negative does not mean that it must end that way as well. So try to do more positive things in your life, take control over it, and create your own opportunities.
The Author recommends: If you spend a lot of time on the computer or your phone, I highly recommend you to get these blue light glasses if you haven't already. Protect your eyes. I just recently got these glasses, you can see very well how strong the protection from the blue light is with these glasses. I got 2 glasses for one price on Amazon, if you are interested click here.
7. Create a Halloween themed party or dinner
I have seen so many creative Tik Tok videos where the family creates a theme for the dinner and then every member of the family dresses up based on it. It looks like such a fun activity to do with your family and I believe this is something children would love to do as well.
