Fall. Autumn. Different names that still give you the same feeling. And yes, this is my ‘most wonderful time of the year’! I thought I was weird at first (duh!), but turns out I’m not the only one! There are a lot of people on this planet who say that Fall is their most favourite season.

Depending on where you live, fall is the season where the weather gets colder and windier. It’s the time of the year where you would rather be at home sitting in front of the fireplace, eating dinner, reading a book or watching a movie. This is one of the many reasons why introverts love Fall.

Just like winter depression, people also get summer depression and the beginning of Fall ushers a change of atmosphere. This creates some stimulation to get things done and get moving. In a nutshell, Fall becomes a temporal landmark for most people, including introverts.

To me, fall brings a sense of peace. The falling of leaves signifies the idea of ‘letting go’. It gives me time to sit back and relax, and review the past year. With winter approaching, I also want to make the best of the outdoor weather and Fall gives me a chance to do that.

Scientists also believe that there is a ‘warm’ feeling associated with Fall. The colors of the leaves, the flavors of the drinks and the goodies, and the comfy sweaters contribute to the feeling of warmth. Sounds like an introvert’s dream, doesn’t it?
