Fall is coming upon us quicker than I would like it to. August is coming to an end, and living in Northern Europe, so is the warm summer weather (If there ever was any?). Seeing I’m a summer-person I easily feel low this time of year. That’s why I think it’s important to plan ahead and set goals for the next few
- What do I want to achieve this fall regarding
- Personal life, mental, and physical health
- Love life
If you made New Year’s resolutions you still have time to follow through. When setting your goals it’s important to think both long- and short term. If you feel lost, it might help to create a mindmap or life circle to figure out what you want. All you have to then is set goals that will take you there, step by step.
- How will I achieve my goals?
If you are like me, and is not particularly fond of the fall with all the pressure that comes along with it, it might be a good idea to make a list of happy things you will do.
- Happy things I will do, for example:
- Curl up on the couch with a blanket reading and watch some good TV shows
- Drink lots of tea
- Go for walks and look at the colorful nature
- Drink wine and play games
Instead of seeing this time of year as dark, gloomy, and filled with “have-to’s”, I will try to see it as a time for reflection and possibilites. The fall is coming wether I want to or not, so I can just as well make the best of it. Some things we do not have control over, like the weather. However, there are things that I can control, like how I choose to spend my time. Whatever you focus on will seem bigger; The darkness will be darker, the cold will be colder… If you focus on the beauty and positivities instead, they will become greater. It’s kinda like when someone’s pregnant and all of a sudden all they can see is pregnant women. If you look for the good, you will find it everywhere around you.
