Four activities to enjoy during fall

Hiking fall

Fall is here, the days are getting shorter, thermometer readings are dropping, but does this mean you are bound to sedentary activities? Of course not! Here are four ideas for activities that you can enjoy during fall.


At the end of this article, I listed some web sites you can use to locate hiking trails or interesting sightseeing features to visit by travelling on foot for hours without feeling bored. If you can, try to incorporate hikes away from noise and the city, and notice how you feel on the way back. If it’s positive, I strongly recommend that you return often!

Raking leaves

Since you will have to rake them anyway, why not organize group chores with friends or family? You might have to rake even more leaves, but you will have a lot of fun doing it together!

Play in a pile of leaves

When was the last time you jumped in a big pile of leaves? If that’s not your cup of tea, you can always take charge of raking the biggest pile possible and letting the kids enjoy it.


If you never gave it a try, you will be surprised how comfortable running outdoors in chilly weather can be. It’s also an excellent opportunity to enjoy the last days outside without any snow. The natural progress of fall also enables you to get accustomed to the drops in temperature with each passing week, so the cold spells of winter will be less shocking to you.

In sports, he has tried it all (soccer, tennis, dek-hockey, hockey, mountain biking, running, crossfit, etc.), so we could say he qualifies as a hyperactive person. That being said, between two sports, he particularly enjoys writing. Philosopher and blogger in his spare time, he gave himself the mission of selling you physical activity as the (sometimes unsuspected) solution to many of your questions and problems. With a very pragmatic approach, he will know how to guide you through the steps that will lead you to succeed in what should be one of the most important projects of your life: your own well-being. His motto: A healthy body leads to a healthy mind.
