September is, according to Gretchen Rubin, the Other New Year. I couldn’t agree more, I always feel like September is a great time for starting new routines, getting back on track with things you let slide over the summer, and just feeling excited about new projects. Here are three things I’m doing right now to celebrate the start of the Other New Year.
- On the getting back on track front, I’m recommitted to bringing my lunch to work every day. I started this habit last year and I’ve been pretty good about it, cooking extra of meals and making sure there’s stuff at home to bring. I got a little lazy about it over the summer since I don’t cook as much but I’ve got a cute new lunch box and I’m inspired to bring healthy meals from home.
- I’m starting something new by committing to learning about chakras. I’m taking an online class that’s offered by a friend of mine and, while I am a complete beginner to the study, it makes sense and feels right for me to learn about in this moment. You know that feeling when something keeps coming up over and over and you finally decide to pay attention to your intuition about it? That’s me and chakras right now.
- I’m feeling excited about a few things right now, actually. I’m excited that my run as secretary of my Kiwanis club ends in a few weeks. It’s been fun but I’m ready for a break from the extra work it involves. I’m excited about a new online watercolor class I’m taking. And I’m excited about having Jackie on Friday afternoons again now that Jessica is back to working on Fridays.
Do you feel like September is a great time for a fresh start? Or to try something new? Tell me about it in the comments!
