We’re back with another post from Chicago-based life coach, Natalie Canizares. Today she brings up the natural change that comes with seasons and how to really be deliberate and focus on the right things this Fall. Always a good reminder! xoxo – LK
With summer nearing it’s end and fall around the corner, change is in the air. If you’re anything like me this feeling of change gets you thinking about what you’re ready to improve in your life.
What is it that you’re ready to start doing this fall? Is it getting to the gym more often? Is it creating a morning routine that sets you up to have a great day? Is it simply setting aside some alone time to sit in quiet?
There are so many simple things we can do that can completely improve our experience. Sometimes the most challenging part about that is not knowing where to start. This is where a lot of us get tripped up. We know we want to make changes but we don’t have clarity on what we want, so it feels impossible to do something about it. Without clarity, making even the simplest change can feel overwhelming. That’s why it’s so important to start getting specific.
A new season is the perfect time to set intentions and start getting focusing on what you really want. A great way to do this is to spend a little bit of time journaling.
Give yourself thirty minutes with a pen and paper and answer this question:
How do I want to feel this season?
As simple as a may sound, it’s a question we often forget to ask ourselves. Life can get so busy that we don’t think to stop and get clear on what we actually want.
Knowing how we want to feel makes it so much easier to then choose what it is we spend our time on. For instance, knowing that you want to feel more peaceful or calm then informs you that it would be a good idea to set aside some time to mediate every day or maybe just spend a few minutes in quiet. Whatever it is you choose, there is no right or wrong answer, what feels best for you is exactly what you should do.
Taking the time to get clear on your intentions will set you ahead of the curve. With the clarity you gain it’s sure be a wonderful fall.
