While cooler weather might still feel like a ways off in some parts of the country, shifting your home into gear for fall can be a welcome relief after a long hot summer. And, while fall doesn’t generally bring the extremes in temperatures that accompany other seasons, it does bring with it special considerations that call for certain home wellness essentials. From air purifiers to get through the smokey wildfire months to space heaters for those mornings when you just need a little extra warmth — and even indoor hammocks to boost mental health — fall provides plenty of opportunities to spruce up your home with stylish wellness essentials. Here are some of the best items for your home (and health!) as you say goodbye to summer and welcome in fall.
Dreo Solaris Slim H3 Space Heater, $74.99
Who says a space heater can’t also be stylish? This Dreo Solaris Slim H3 Space Heater is the best of all worlds — it’s quiet, it’s efficient, and it looks nice under your desk or in your bedroom for those chilly autumn mornings when you don’t want to heat the entire house. Even better, it comes with a remote control so you don’t even have to get out of bed to turn it on. With a reach of 25 feet, it’s highly effective and will heat a room quickly. It’s also programmable, can oscillate 70 degrees, and has built-in safety features to prevent overheating, filter out pet hair and dust, and turn off if accidentally tipped over.
Cotton Rope Hammock by Yellow Leaf Hammocks, $199
For some, it’s hard to let go of summer and all the outdoor activities, which is why bringing a hammock indoors might be the perfect home solution for your mental health this fall. After all, hammocks encourage rest and relaxation. This Cotton Rope Hammock by Yellow Leaf is handwoven from 100% cotton that’s soft on the skin and perfect for lounging indoors or out. It can even be bundled back into its bag and taken camping with these nifty “Go Anywhere” Hanging Straps — although you may want to opt for one of Yellow Leaf’s Signature Hammocks that are a bit more durable for the outdoors if you camp regularly. Regardless of which design you pick, these hammocks will add style points indoors (or out) as you move into the fall months. Best of all, they’re beautifully handmade in Thailand under sustainable trade conditions that empower craftswomen to be breadwinners for their families.

The SmokeBlock filter is also useful for pet dander, VOCs and cooking odors, making it an attractive add-on for the already effective filter. With an auto mode and a real-time air quality LED display light, this filter is perfect for use in every room of the house and is rated for 190 square feet of living space.
