What… it’s September?! We’re not sure how on earth this has happened, we’re slowly creeping into Autumn and schools are going back to actual classrooms. If there was ever a time giving us the ‘fresh start’ feels it is the month of September.
‘Busy’ was not and is not productive, nor is it healthy. So, before things get too intense and we all get wrapped up in our own ‘busy’ lives, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The semi fresh start that September brings is an ideal moment to try this.
Set a date with yourself, add it to your calendar, schedule a reminder. Whatever steps you need to take to ensure it happens, take them. And definitely don’t bail on yourself.
For us, in this time, our go-to is to get outside. Whether a walk, a run, a bike ride, anything that will get us outdoors. Because, nature makes us better. It gives us the space we need, it gives us the room to breathe and more than anything it gives us clarity.
At times of crisis, when the world’s issues seem inconceivably big and unsolvable, individual purpose can seem small. Questioning yourself and your purpose is common when faced with such unknowns. But getting out into the great outdoors, for us, gives us an opportunity to realign with our purpose. It gives us a time to reset and enforces the reasons to keep moving forward. Whatever this time looks like for you, whether getting outdoors, listening to music or even journaling, take the time. Use it, savour it and take our word for it, you’ll be better for it.
As ever, if you’ve got any great ways or methods to reset and refresh, ping us an email – we’d love to hear them.
