What was something you learned about yourself this year? What parts of yourself do you love? What parts of yourself do you want to care and focus on?
Tools for journaling:
It's hard work unpacking your year and processing your emotions, making sure you have tools to destress and return to baseline is key to Sad Girl Autumn.
Take a bath or warm shower. Use fragrant shampoos and conditioners to ground yourself in scents.
If baths or showers are not on the schedule, a quick and easy way to destress is using adaptogens. The Balance My Stress adaptogen is made with Ashwagandha, reishi mushroom, and eleuthero root to support a sense of calm and wellbeing. Add to your tea, coffee, or milk.
This Danish lifestyle of taking time to care for yourself and be with those you love and relax and enjoy the comforts and pleasures of life in a comfortable environment is synonymous with Sad Girl Autumn.
Create a comfortable space with these key items:
We adore the patterns from Minna, a women owned, ethically made, and made with natural fibers.
Beeswax taper candles always! We adore a scented candle but Sad Girl Autumn calls for a Practical Magic aesthetic.
Protect and treat your feet well, they hold us up all day. Our favorite cozy socks are from a_db botanical color. These small batch socks are dyed with botanicals including home-grown flowers, barks, bugs, indigo, and other plant-based extracts. Each piece is one of a kind.
Cozy space is all the better with moisturized and soft skin! Sad girls take care of their skin, and after a good cry, use our eye cream and reusable eye masks.
