SETTING GOALS FOR THE NEW SEASON
There are only a few weeks left until the new season begins! How did your summer goals go? What do you still want to accomplish? It’s important that you’re regularly checking in with your goals and what you want to achieve. Take a few minutes to set your fall goals with us.
As it gets colder, it may be more tempting to cuddle up under your blankets instead of moving your body. But, getting up and working out can be just as rewarding. You just need to adjust your exercise routine to match the weather!
If you’re going to continue to exercise outdoors, make sure that you wear layers. Then, when you start to warm up, you can shed the excess. Also make sure to adjust the timing of your workout. It will start to get dark earlier, and it’s important to be safe! If necessary, move your workout indoors. If you don’t have the equipment to continue your running routine inside, it might be time to switch to pilates or yoga.
Take a few minutes to dwell on your workout goals and write them down. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with maintaining what you already have accomplished. If you like the routine you currently have, make a goal to stick to it and keep it up. If you’re ready to move on, figure out where you’d like to improve, and adjust your goal accordingly.
A change of seasons can cause some disruptions to your schedule. That’s one of the many reasons why focusing on your emotional growth is so important. Take a look at where you’re at emotionally and mentally right now. Are you finding yourself stressed out or anxious more than usual? Do you generally feel happy? Assess what is needed for your emotional health right now and take some steps to improve it.
If you have a hard time winding down, take a few hours during the week to focus on self care. This can look like journaling, taking a warm bath, meditating, or listening to your favorite music! Because you are a unique individual, your self care routine doesn’t need to look like anyone else’s. Just make sure that you’re writing out a specific goal to work on your emotional health each week.
If you didn’t set aside time to be creative during the summer, now is the time to do so. With colder weather, there is plenty to keep you occupied inside. Remember, when it comes to being creative, the important thing is making something new—not being skilled. Break out your paints, crayons, thread, beads, or even dried macaroni noodles!
Regardless of what it is, set a goal to get the creative juices flowing even for a few minutes each week. You might be able to expand your skills faster than you expect. Now is a great time to try something new, too.
