How To Get The Most Out Of Shorter Duluth and Superior Fall Days
As fall creeps in to the Twin Ports it means cooler temps, the leaves changing, and less hours of daylight.
The latter is always a major bummer for me. I don't much like leaving for work when it's dark and getting home when it's that way, so how can we make the most out of less daylight hours this time of year?
Take a fall lunch walk
Maybe you are planted at an office most of the day, or working from your desk at home. For those that don't work outside, just getting out for a brief walk can really do some good for your day. Plan if you can even a short walk when the sun is out to soak it up and snag some fresh air.
Spend your fall weekends outside
Or at least as much of your weekends as you can. Even if it's cooler out, bundle up, enjoy the outdoors before it gets too cold to want to go outside. This can help if you aren't able to pencil in some outdoor time during the week when it's still light out.
Take a nice fall day off of work
As it gets closer to the end of the year, many have some PTO or vacation time to burn up before they lose it. If it's going to be a gorgeous fall day, take one off of work. Call it a day off or a mental health day, but getting some sun when it's shining and forgetting about work stress can really help with the lack of daylight hours we're getting into. Get out on a hike, a late season motorcycle ride, or even just wrap up that before winter yard work.
Take a fall vacation
Many in the Twin Ports wait to hit up places like Mexico or Vegas in the dead of winter, but sometimes later fall is a nice to to visit sunny places too. It's usually not as hot as a July trip that far south, and if the lack of daylight is already bugging you, a trip away might be just what you need.
