“Too much, too many, and too often of what you want becomes what you don’t want.”

—Timothy Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek

Autumn is such an invigorating time of year. I think the Midwest seasons feel so revitalizing in part because the cyclical changes make us appreciate the impermanence of each month a little more. With too much of anything, we often get too comfortable and complacent—or no longer comfortable at all, longing for something new.

The seasons are nature’s beautiful rhythm. If we were to perpetually experience the joys of summer, the sun and heat might begin to feel stale. Winter lovers probably don’t prefer snow-covered hills all year long either.

Autumn marks a special transition from the vibrant summer days to the quiet and cold winter months. The season of fall is wonderful all on its own: sweater weather, autumn activities, changing colors, the scent of decaying leaves and sweet cider …  there is much to appreciate.

While we are enjoying the red, yellow and orange hues, we also are paying attention to green this month. In the October issue of Natural Awakenings, we’ve got some fresh eco-ideas for you in addition to a variety of wellness content.

When fall cleaning, be sure to read how to make homes greener and healthier in our feature article on page 24. If you enjoy the fall harvest at the local market, perhaps you may enjoy reading about the connection between soil and our health in our piece on regenerative agriculture on page 36.

This issue is full of other inspiring articles, too—from global briefs to local spotlights, we’ve got something inspiring for everyone this fall. And stay tuned for our second annual Local, Sustainable, Healthy Holiday Gift Guide coming out in November!

Have a wonderful autumn!
