Fall is a beautiful time of year, and it’s the perfect time to curl up at home with a good book, take a warm bath, or just relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Whether you’re looking to relax, recharge, or simply enjoy some peace and quiet,  

Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls

Matthew 11:29— NET

If you’re looking for some tips on how to make the most of your quiet time at home this fall, here are a few ideas: 

  1. Create a cozy atmosphere. Light some candles, put on some soft music, and make yourself a cup of your favorite tea or coffee. Make sure your space is comfortable and inviting so you can really relax and unwind. 
  1. Do something you enjoy. This could be reading, writing, taking a bath, listening to music, or anything else that makes you happy. Take some time to focus on yourself and your own needs. 
  1. Practice mindfulness. This could involve meditating on God and his goodness or simply taking a few minutes each day to focus on your breath and your body. Mindfulness can help you to become more present and aware of the moment, which can lead to greater relaxation and peace of mind. 
  1. Take a break from chores. Chores can wait! This is your time to relax and recharge, so don’t feel guilty about taking a break from the laundry or the dishes. 
  1. Journal. Journaling is a great way to express your thoughts and feelings, and it can also be a helpful way to track your progress and identify areas where you need to make changes. See Journaling Time with Jesus: A Guide to Drawing Closer to God 
  1. Take a nap. Sometimes the best way to enjoy quiet time is to simply take a nap. If you can, nap in a dark, quiet room where you won’t be disturbed. 
  1. Spend time with loved ones. If you’re feeling up to it, spend some time with loved ones. This could be a family dinner, a movie night with friends, or simply a phone call with a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. 
  1. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you’re struggling to find the time or energy for quiet time, don’t be afraid to ask for help from friends or family members. They may be able to watch the kids, take out the trash, or run errands for you so that you can have some uninterrupted time to yourself. 
  1. Just relax. The most important thing is to simply relax and enjoy your quiet time. Don’t worry about doing anything in particular, just focus on being present and enjoying the moment. 
  1. Be kind to yourself. If you find yourself feeling restless or anxious, don’t beat yourself up about it. Just take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that you’re allowed to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. 

Quiet time is an important part of self-care, and it’s something that everyone should make time for. Taking some time each day to relax and recharge will help you to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally. So, this fall, make sure to set aside some time for yourself to enjoy some quiet time at home.

  1. It’s so important to plan for a little R&R in our days and weeks. God didn’t make us to go full steam 24/7. Our limits and need for breaks remind us that we’re not God and He is.

  2. Wonderful suggestions. As I read it through a second time, I thought … but these are truly good for all year round! But I do love the changes each season brings and the way the changes breathe into our souls.

    1. Yes, they really are good for all year round for sure.

  3. i love fall. i’m not ready for it yet, but i do love it. and you’ve spelled out the reasons why, friend, in such a lovely and inviting way.

    1. I’m not ready either Linda, I prefer hot over cold, then when the time changes I have bad seasonal affect disorder until the spring time change. But I do love the beauty of fall and festivals. But I’m going to have to say yuck to pumpkin spice things, Lol.

  4. Thank you for this fun blog. 😊 I’m a bit apprehensive about the autumn because they’ve had such a wet summer. 🌧️ We did have sun, but those days were extremely hot. ☀️ Your tips are great.

    🍂 How do you decorate your home for the fall? 🏡

    1. I live in a small apartment. So I had to really downsize from when I had my house. So really I just decorate my TV stand and another 3 tiered stand I have. Things like fake pumpkins, leaves, signs, and a few figurines. How about you? Do you decorate?

  5. These are some great tips!

  6. Paula, these are great ideas for entering into a time of rest, recharge, and rejuvenation!

  7. Paula, I love all these tips. I really need to find more time for quiet time. I’ve been enjoying evenings out on my back porch. When the weather is breezy and I can hear the crickets chirping-they don’t believe much in quiet time, lol. Thanks so much for linking up with all of us at my link party.

    I hope you will join us again soon.

  8. I’m just waiting for this heat wave to pass then I plan to spend as much time as possible just chilling out and relaxing

    Thanks for linking with #pocolo
