The ABC of the Autumn Season

The ABC of the Autumn Season

From the crunching sound of the dead leaves under my boots, I remember a deep sense of exhilaration in Autumn as a child. Immersed in the humid air, the smell of mushroom scents, and the stingy bugs, I recall this lovely longing for the promised grilled chestnuts and hot chocolate post-walk.

Amidst the fading light and cooling weather, there is beauty and joy to be found.

Seasonal changes are a great illustration to help us navigate life’s transitions. There is so much to be inspired by the ABC symbolism of autumn to revamp the menopausal mindset.

By starting from the ground up, addressing your symptoms and tensions, you get good foundations to put your mind into your projects and future.

At the end of the day, the purpose is to nurture your inner child — the one who remembers to tune in to sensations and bring joy at any given moment.
