We had such a wonderful time completing the activities on September’s list that we are super excited for October Living (an October bucket list). This month’s editorial theme is Relish and we can’t wait to explore what it means to greatly enjoy life.
Scroll down for nine fun things to do in October and relish every moment of the wonderful month ahead.
Take a trip. October is a great time to go on adventures. Everything is beautiful and the weather is still nice enough for a road trip. You don’t have to go far from home either. A short day trip is less stress and still tons of fun.
Host a game night. Sometimes the weather can keep you inside, but that’s okay. Instead of binging a TV series, host a game night instead. If you’re a parent, make it a family game night with classics like Chutes and Ladders and Uno.
Decorate your porch. If you aren’t big on Halloween, you can still decorate for the season with a nice harvest wreath or even mums.
Go on a nature walk. Get your jacket on and your boots and head outside. The beautiful fall colors and crunchy leaves will have you immersed in all things fall. Plus the exercise and the fresh air will feel great.
Listen to some tunes. When you are busy all the time, you miss out on time to relax and just be. Turn on some tunes, sit on the bed, or go for a walk. Just don’t be in a hurry. Looking for a playlist? Check out this one.
Have a movie night. Do a movie marathon night with your friends. If you have little ones, make it a family movie night. Don’t forget the popcorn and snacks.
Head to the thrift store. Put together a sweet costume for Halloween using thrift store finds. Or you could find a great steal on some preloved items.
Try a new recipe. It is easy to stick to the same recipes week after week. But variety is the spice of life. Pick up a cookbook, check out Pinterest, and make a new recipe or two.
Go to the pumpkin patch. You can’t have an October without a visit to the patch. It can be great fun even if you don’t have children. Apple cider donuts, pumpkins, and cute animals make the patch a good time for all.
There are so many more things to do in October but we think these are a great start. If you have a fun October activity that we haven’t included in our October Living guide, make sure to let us know in the comments!
PS. We will be sharing how we live our best life in October on Instagram.
