Fall this year is going to be different just as summer was. Colourful dried leaves are falling to the earth all around us, but the pandemic doesn’t seem to be hitting rock bottom any time soon. If anything, we are back to having more restrictions. Places are being identified as tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3, with varying levels of restrictions.
This means that most of us are going to spend a lot of time at home. Our interaction with others is going to be limited. Group fall activities have to be replaced (as if the weather isn’t bad enough). In short, you’re on your own to make the best of this autumn season.
Best Fun Yet Productive Fall/Autumn Activities For Adults In 2020
In this blog, we’ve collected some engaging, fun, and productive activities for adults to try this fall season. We’ve tried to expand the view by including activities for different people. You’re sure to find at least one or two activities that’ll interest you. Shall we get started then?
1. You Can Still Host Games and Events
Yes, you can. We’ve got to thank technology for this. You may not be able to cram together under a single blanket with your friends, but you can still snuggle up in yours and have a party through one of the video calling apps.
Each one of you can exhibit your special skills and entertain others. Get a friend to give a live demo of baking or mixing cocktails. Ask another to showcase their acting skills. You can get another to pose for an artist friend. Or maybe you can proudly compare the number of leaves you’ve collected.
2. Know Your Roots
We aren’t talking about the plants here. Many people have started showing interest in genealogy. Tracing your ancestry can be real fun, and you also get to know some exciting (or scary) facts about your family name. Check out the official ancestry website and start entering your details. It’ll show you related information so that you can go digging further into the past. You may not be able to dig outside, but you sure can do it on the internet. This is something elders and people with disabilities can easily do.
3. Don’t Forget to Workout
Yeah, yeah, we can hear you groan. But you can’t ignore your health, especially not in these times. If exercising feels boring, try dancing. And if you want to be even more productive, start with the fall cleaning. Dust, brush, scrub, vacuum, and clean the house. Rearrange the items on the shelves. Get rid of junk.
4. Have You Baked Yet?
How can we not bake when the wind picks up chill outside the house? So what’s your favorite? Do you have family recipes you always rely on? Now is the time to do something different. This lockdown has resulted in bringing out the creativity in people. There are some amazing new cakes, breaks, and recipes to try if you are willing to experiment. Oh, don’t forget sourdough baking.
Are you a novice? Terrified that you’ll burn down the house? Join online baking classes. Improve your skills by learning cake decorations. The best part about online classes is that you can join a class from another country. This is another activity elders would enjoy, isn’t it?
5. Polish Your Skills
Why limit learning to baking? You can learn almost anything online these days. This fall season whether it’s a musical instrument or a new language or calligraphy, improve your skills. Where’s the fun factor, you ask? Well, if you love what you are doing, you’ll naturally be having fun, won’t you? Should we add that there is no age limit to learning?
6. Plan Virtual Outdoor Events
We know it’s just not easy sitting at home during fall. The yearning to be outside can make you sad and disappointed. But you don’t have to let these feelings ruin your happiness. Depending on the restrictions in your region, you can step out of the house (with a face mask and gloves), and play the live video of your explorations for your friends. Each of you can do the same.
7. It’s Champagne Time
Have you been waiting for the right time to open a champagne bottle? Why wait for something beyond our control? Celebrating Champagne Day is the best way to push away all anxieties and treat yourself to a lovely day/ night of pampering and relaxation. The Director of the UK’s Champagne Bureau has listed perfect champagne pairings for you to try and savor. Plan a good bath, let your hair down, and sip champagne through the night.
There is much you can do apart from the above activities this fall season. Crafting, DIYs, bingo with friends through video calling apps, movie marathons, etc. are some more examples. Don’t let the pandemic take away the fun of the autumn season. Enjoy it as much as you can, and keep your spirits high.
