- Carve out some time for yourself. This sounds selfish, but many of us are still recovering from the chaos of summer. To make this truly worthwhile, spend the time away from technology. Bingeing on Netflix may sound great but it really doesn’t replenish your soul.
- Plan for autumn activities. The window of time to enjoy this season is short so make sure you get outside. Pick some pumpkins or apples at a local orchard. Get lost in a maze of corn with your friends and family.
- Make shorter to-do lists. This one sounds like chaos; however, your focus will be laser sharp as you won’t waste time on mundane tasks. Focus on what really matters. You will get the right stuff done and not worry about trivial stuff. If you are worried, ask for help or hire someone to help you with your tasks.
- Journal or write somewhere, somehow. Writing in an actual journal is old school yet how therapeutic it is to put our words onto paper. Do yourself a favor and begin to write your thoughts, feelings, desires, goals, and fears. The unexamined life is a life full of lost dreams, cobwebs, and constant fear.
