As we put away our sandals and bring out our slippers and as the weather gets colder and the winter gets closer, I thought that I would make a list to help you get through this beautiful season.

1. Organise your life.

No matter if it is just doing a deep clean of your flat/student accommodation or going through your entire wardrobe giving away old clothes to charity, a clean slate is just what you need for a new semester.

2. Turn the darkness into something cosy.

Treat yourself to a luxurious study session. Put on your comfiest outfit, light some candles, brew a cup of tea, maybe even put on a nice facemask and go deep into your study zone.

3. Take advantage of the sun.

Maybe have your lunch on the steps outside of Skånis to really soak up the final few rays of sun before it disappears.

4. Read books.

Now, I am not only talking about your course literature or keeping up with your beloved Nådiga Lundtan, try to find some time to lose yourself in a fantastic, fictional novel.

5. Try new recipes.

Cosy up with some comforting and hearty autumnal food to bring some warmth to those cold crisp nights. Get into the spirit of by adding some seasonal ingredients to your favourite dishes. A personal favourite of mine is adding pumpkin into a risotto.

6. Go second hand shopping.

After cleaning out your home, it is always refreshing to spice up your life with some new clothes and accessories, and what is better this time of year than going second hand shopping? It does not have to be at our local shops here in Lund, during autumn there are a vast array of markets popping up all over Skåne.

7. Have a long walk outside.

With the leaves changing colour, a perfect activity for any Sunday is a nice long stroll in nature. There are some fantastically scenic places to immerse yourself in both in Lund and its surrounding areas. Two of my personal favourites are Häckeberga castle and Söderåsen.

About Nådiga Lundtan

Founded in 1948 and has since been an important part of student life in the economics program at Lund University. Nådiga Lundtan covers a wide range of topics related to economics, society, and politics, as well as careers, entrepreneurship, and innovation. It is a platform for students to share their ideas and opinions on economics and related fields.
