WELCOME TO FALL: DAY 2
TODAY’S SENSE: HEARING
The sense of sound might not immediately come to mind when you think about preparing for fall. But I think it’s important to consider all the senses when it comes to creating a home environment. As the weather turns cooler and the days shorter, we tend to spend more time indoors. Take care not to allow unlimited television become a constant source of background noise.
1. How do you usually listen to music at home? Your phone? CDs? Albums? Consider your options and create your fall music collection. If you have physical sources of music such as CDs or vinyl albums, spend a bit of time sorting through them and pull out a few that suit your sense of what fall music should be. Or how about a new playlist on Spotify?
Here is one I created for you:
2. There is nothing quite like curling up with a good book on a rainy afternoon and I think we should all do that whenever possible. Sometimes, though, an audiobook is a more convenient choice. I love to listen to a book while cleaning house or doing some type of project that doesn’t require too much concentration. There are several options for audiobooks. Check your local library first for free options.
Audible is another source of audiobooks and you can try it free for a month by clicking below:
Or my current favorite – Scribd. I absolutely LOVE this one. If you’d like to try it free for two months, click here.
No matter the source you plan to use, take a few minutes to make a short list of books you’d like to listen to the next few weeks. Choose books that make you feel all warm and cozy. If you need a suggestion, you can’t go wrong with Rosamunde Pilcher. Try this one which is available free with an Audible free trial:
3. Another source of listening pleasure are podcasts. How about a cozy mystery? Check out The Afternoon Tea Detective.
Welcome to the Afternoon Tea Detective Hour, where we put the kettle on, sit down with a hot beverage, and enjoy a cozy mystery together. This series is brought to you by Plum Deluxe Tea. Listeners get to choose where the story goes next!
I hope those suggestions inspired you to be intentional about what you listen to this season. And be sure to check back tomorrow for Day 3 of the “Welcome to Fall” challenge!
