We made it to the other side of summer into glorious fall!
I LOVE fall. I live for fall! It is hands down the best. time. of. year.
Every summer I get a small kick out of not needing socks or coats, but mostly, I just pine for fall.
And now that it's here, I can relax. (Apologies if I sound unapologetically gleeful.)
Don't get me wrong. I'm not going on vacation and my fall schedule is craaaazy.
But in fall, I feel like myself, so I can handle the crazy.
I know some of you feel a lil' of the same -- and some of you are just sad as can be at the loss of summer and all that it brings.
So here's what I want you to do to balance the scales a bit:
Ask yourself: in which season do you feel most "relaxed," most at ease --most like yourself?
Can you bring some of that season into your least relaxed season?
Like I try every summer to escape to green spaces without heat waves. Failing that, I stake out great coffee shops with AC and a park view.
If you're a summer person, try scheduling regular saunters and picnic lunches (or the indoor equivalent!). Soak up extra sun whenever you can. Keep the feeling of summer freedom alive.
Schedule even just ten minutes of "summer" (or fall or spring or winter) each day, and it may just keep you more relaxed all year long.
What simple seasonal things do you do to relax and how can you use them to make your whole year a little more you?
Stay cool (or sunbathed!).
Observing with you,
