“Fall is a feast for the physical senses, the perfect opportunity to step out of our thoughts and into the body, connecting with the world around us.” — Andy Puddicombe, co-founder of the meditation app Headspace.

Step outside on a fall day.

Notice the quality of the light.

Feel the air against your skin, cooler than it was just a few weeks ago.

Observe the sunlight filtering through the trees.

Notice the play of the shadows.

Listen to the sounds of rustling leaves.

Inhale the smell of an autumn day.
