September is Self-Improvement Month! Self-improvement can mean something different to everyone. It can be physical fitness, mental health, or simply #selfcare. Here you’ll find some ideas to kick-start the fall season in a positive way. Can you believe September 23rd is already the first day of fall? Get ready for breezy days, colorful leaves, and (finally) a break from the summer sun.
Take it One Day at a Time
What does self-improvement mean to you? Remember that everyone’s path to improvement looks different, so don’t evaluate yourself based on someone else’s standards. Start by thinking about an area of your life that you would like to change. It could be eating and exercise habits, your career, your education, the way you think about yourself, etc. The first step is becoming aware of the opportunity. Then, set a timeline with realistic and achievable goals. Want to pay off debt? Calculate your total debt and divide it by how many months you’d like to pay it off in (for example, twelve, twenty-four, or thirty-six months). You’ll get an idea of how much you can really afford to set aside for debt-payoff each month and then start chipping away at it. Want to improve your professional image? Consult a wardrobe stylist that cares about your career, image, and budget as much as you do. Once you learn what to look for, invest in new pieces each month for a year until you build a wardrobe that helps you feel empowered and confident in the workplace. The most important thing is to keep the process positive! Don’t be too hard on yourself if you stumble or backtrack along the way. Take pride in the small, daily victories and keep pressing forward on your self-improvement journey.
Enjoy Friends, Family, and Foliage
Ah, Fall! It’s all about pumpkin spice, sweaters, foliage, and the start of the holiday season! It has finally cooled down from summer and it’s now the ideal weather for taking long strolls through the neighborhood with family and friends. Don’t forget to bring along the Maglite ML150LR(X) Rechargeable LED flashlight. It will keep you safe with a beam throw of 5 football fields and up to 79 hours of usable light. It’s also the perfect household flashlight because it recharges to 80% in only half an hour. The best part? No more scrambling to find batteries in the junk drawer! Fall is also a great time to get ahead of holiday shopping. Take advantage of end-of-season sales and start checking people off your list. Don’t wait until the last minute, because no one needs that kind of stress! Check out Maglite’s best sellers for some great deals on iconic gifts for your loved ones.
Take some time this week to think about self care. You’ve conquered back to school this month, so before all the hustle and bustle of the holidays takes over, be sure to take a moment to relax and unwind. Try a face mask and a bath bomb, go on a jog through the trails, or listen to some music with a glass of wine. You deserve it!
