September might, on the surface, signal the end of the summer months, those carefree days making the most of longer evenings, but, fret not, all is not lost.
September is a wonderful midpoint between the end of summer and the start of Autumn that eases us into the colder months.
So, if you’re feeling down about the end of Summer, we have a few reasons to convince you that September is actually the best month…
We seem to have a tendency to get into our heads that when August ends, the dog days are over and we are immediately plunged back into the colder weather we were so eager to escape. Of course though, this isn’t so.
What most often forget is that typically whenever the kids go back to school, September tends to have better weather than it did all summer in the UK!
As a midpoint between Summer and Autumn, we get the best of both worlds, a sort of last hurrah before October when it really does start to feel like Autumn.
Back to School
Days out to the beach, to the zoo, the aquarium and even just cafes and restaurants will no longer be packed with kids!
If you have kids, September being back to school time, makes it the perfect month to organise little days out with your other half or your friends that you might not have had the time to do over the summer with your little ones off school.
Cheaper Trips Away
With everyone else just coming back from their holidays, September makes an excellent time for a trip away, prices will be more affordable, there will be considerably less tourists in cities and the weather will still be great - win-win!
So, if you’re feeling down to see the end of summer, why not perk yourself up with an affordable weekend away before Autumn gets into full-swing?
A Fresh Start
While it’s undeniably sad to see the end of summer, sometimes to start of a new season is a great time for a fresh start.
If you have kids, sending them off to school probably means you’ll have lots more time than you did during the summer. By making yourself feel inspired for a fresh start you’ll feel ten times more ready for the transition into AW16. Get planning your new beginning!
