5 Rituals to Transition Into Fall

5 Rituals to Transition Into Fall

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

The days are getting shorter, the mornings are getting more crisp and brisk, the forests are turning into beautiful hues or red, orange and gold, and soon you will find pumpkin spiced everything in coffee shops. The season of chunky scarves, curling up with a good book, and munching on freshly baked goods is upon us.

Fall is a time to be cherished. It is the sweet spot between those long, lazy summer days and the icy, dark winter days. Coziness is of the utmost importance in this transition from the heat of summer to the windier, cooler days of fall.

At Inika Superfoods we believe in adapting to Mother Nature and following the seasons. Hence, one of the reasons why we named our brand Inika, which means Little Earth. Therefore, we have gathered five rituals to help you transition from summer to fall.

Eat warm, nourishing foods

While summer is a wonderful season for eating an abundance of fresh fruit, fall is the season to eat more warming, grounding, and nourishing foods. During fall, you want to focus on foods that come from the ground. Think pumpkins, potatoes, leeks, beetroots, carrots, sweet potatoes… Other foods and spices that are perfect for fall are cinnamon, turmeric, apples, pears, ginger, cardamom, and zucchini.

You might also want to eat more cooked and warm foods. Whereas summer is fantastic for eating lots of smoothies and salads, during fall and winter your body naturally wants more warm, nourishing foods. 

Our Golden Milk Plantshake is brilliant for fall. This Plantshake embraces you as a warm, healing, nurturing hug, while its aromatic taste takes your mind to India and beyond. Ayurvedic spices such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom are some of its carefully selected ingredients for a full sensory experience.

Journal

It seems as though fall and winter are naturally more inward-centered and reflective seasons, so why not take up journaling? Buy yourself a beautiful journal and get into a daily or weekly routine of journaling. Take some time to reflect and turn inwards. Here are a few questions you might find helpful: 

  • What are my intentions for this season?
  • What am I grateful for?
  • What are some lessons I learned during the summer season?

Focus on self-care

Many of us naturally spend more time indoors during this season, and we usually also spend a bit more time by ourselves during this season. Therefore, fall is the perfect season to focus a little extra on self-care. Perhaps get into the routine of giving yourself a self-massage every evening with warm sesame oil (or your favorite oil) before taking a warm bath or shower. Or maybe treat yourself to a nourishing hair mask and give your hair a lovely treatment twice a week. Or perhaps take as little as five minutes every morning and evening to take extra good care of your skin.

Focus on grounding

Fall is the season to get grounded. This is the season for rest, nourishment, quiet time, reflection and grounding. Therefore, try focusing on grounding practices. It could be going for long walks and watching the changing colors of the trees, sipping tea with an abundance of grounding herbs and spices, eating warm, cooked foods, going to bed early, sleeping in more often, breathing deeply, doing more yin and restorative yoga… There are so many grounding practices, so find some that work for you.

Cozy up

Fall and winter truly are the seasons for cozying up. Curl up with a good book in our Inika Glorious Hoodie, drink your favorite warm beverage, cook your favorite foods, get comfy with big scarves and fuzzy blankets. Wear soft, comfy clothes such as our hoodie. Just make sure you make plenty of time to fully embrace the feeling of coziness this season. 

We hope that these five rituals will make the transition to fall easier and more enjoyable. We wish you the most cozy, lovely fall. 

Love, 
Inika Superfoods
