What to do against an autumn dip

by | 20 Oct 2021 | Inspiration | 0 comments

It’s autumn again. Besides falling leaves, autumn storms, and rain, also the time when it can be difficult to get out of bed. And in which life sometimes seems a little darker and grayer. Then, in addition, all the hectic in the world around corona and travel. It is not surprising if it sometimes becomes too much.

That is why we have listed a number of tips for you to brighten up those gray autumn days:

  • Take care of yourself!

It’s totally okay to feel gloomy and down every now and then. Just give it some attention and make it a small momentum.

Sit down on the couch with a blanket. Grab a good book, a cup of tasty tea, and shut out the rest of the world. Or spoil yourself with an extensive bath. Baling all autumn is of course a shame. But taking it easy, accepting that you feel a bit down, and giving it some space can do wonders.

  • Go out!

Especially now that it is less sunlight. It’s important to catch enough sun and enjoy the outdoors.

So grab your bag and your cap go for a walk for a day, go that weekend hiking outdoors, or get a breath of fresh air on the beach!

Do you have such a ‘happy song’? one of those songs where you can’t sit still?

Put it on the speaker (or on your earphones), turn the volume up a bit, and enjoy the good vibe. Or better yet: sing-along and (if you dare) dance along.

  • Give!

Research has shown that people who give are happier. And giving is very easy. Give someone some extra attention; by sending an app asking how you are doing. Compliment someone’s outfit. And send a card or pay attention to someone’s story.

It’s not all that complex

And the nice thing is: if you buy something beautiful in our webshop; that bag for your weekend away, that tasty blanket for the couch, the tea, or the handmade card. Then you GIVE too!

And actually a lot.
Because we are a

fair-trade webshop

that the makers not only pay a fair price for their products. But it also gives the makers of the product’s attention. In this way, we show that we do not forget people who are less fortunate than us. And you also contribute to a better world.


If that doesn’t help with your autumn dip…..

Over ons
Help Local with Love wordt gerund door mensen uit Nederland en Marokko. Het Nederlandse deel van ons team doet dit werk grotendeels vrijwillig. De opbrengst komt dus zoveel mogelijk ten goede aan de mensen die het nodig hebben.

Onze producten
De handgemaakte accessoires die we verkopen, zijn gemaakt door ambachtslieden in niet-westerse landen die door COVID-19 hun inkomsten hebben verloren. Nu de toeristen wegblijven, kunnen ze hun goederen niet meer verkopen. Ze wonen in landen zonder sociaal vangnet. Geen geld betekent: geen medische voorzieningen, geen woonruimte, geen eten.

En daar willen we wat aan doen met Help Local with Love.

Jouw aankoop
Met jouw aankoop bij Help Local with Love help je deze ambachtslieden direct aan een beetje inkomen. Zo zorgen wij er samen voor dat ook deze mensen deze moeilijke tijd doorkomen.
