FALL…it's got me thinking.

Uncategorized Sep 25, 2021

I don’t know about you but I live for the Fall. I always have. This season naturally perks me up with the promise of comfy sweaters, cozy cups of coffee on brisk days and a timeout on the humidity - my hair is grateful. Growing up in the Midwest, the Fall meant after-school cheerleading practice to get ready for Friday night football games and watching the Big Ten (when there were actually 10) with my grandpa on Saturday afternoons.  Go Buckeyes!

Whatever your relationship with Fall, I think it’s the best example of how to embrace change. These next few months are a gentle reminder that change is both beautiful and complex. Here are a few ideas to help you embrace it.

Nurture your social connections.

  • Call your people and organize a brunch or an outing
  • Join that book club you’ve been eyeing
  • Schedule a weekly walk routine with a friend

Check your stress.

  • Increase your sleep and/or take naps
  • Keep your screen time low
  • Get lost in your thoughts on purpose or download a meditation app and commit to 5 min. a day

Reflect and celebrate your wins.

  • Resist glossing over your wins
  • Write down 5 things you've accomplished this year that you're most proud of
  • Getting your kids back in school successfully, navigating meal prep for 4 weeks straight or starting a new job - those are WINS!

I'm working on a few exciting updates and changes on my end and can't wait to tell you about them.  But like a good cup of coffee, they're still percolating; so I'll share a lot more next week.

Listen, our lives should feel fresh, alive and healthy!  So give yourself the gift of grace and the space to grow in this season.
