It's hard to believe it but the calendar doesn't lie. Summer is over. The pools are closed, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are turning, and before we know it, the holiday season will be here!
Fall is traditionally known to be a time of transitions and preparations. We transition from the long lazy summer days to shorter yet busier days full of school, sports practice and homework. We are no longer getting prepared for family vacations or beach getaways and instead we are starting to plan how big of a turkey we'll need and what gifts to buy the family.
As the holiday busyness creeps closer, I'd like to remind us all that we can set the tone for how we want to feel come December. Tense, hectic, chaotic? Or prepared, relaxed and calm? We can choose how we want to roll into the holidays and the winter months by what we do and how we prepare in this fall season. How can you keep the chill vibes of summer and maybe find some fall fun to sprinkle in? Go to a Broncos game, visit a corn maze, throw a costume party, plan a friendsgiving potluck, make more time for evening walks in the crunchy leaves or maybe make a hearty soup to bring to someone that needs a pick me up. I hope you are able to create some fun and make space for these upcoming months to be calm and easy-breezy.
