#play in the leaves (Unwind Wednesday)
Fall is here! The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are changing color.
Fall is a pretty short season in Saskatchewan, which is why for today's edition of Unwind Wednesday I'm going to encourage you to get outside, enjoy the beautiful colors of fall, and if you can, find a pile of leaves to play in. Being playful brings a lightness to our being and silliness and laughter can improve your mood, activate and relieve your stress response, and give your immune system a boost.
So get out there and rake up the leaves in your yard, then jump in. I promise it is totally worth the extra effort it will take to clean the leaves up again after. Get your kids or grandkids to join in the fun. If you don't have a lot of leaves in your yard, head out to a park, make a small pile and just kick them or throw them up in air and watch them fall.
