You’ve heard of Hot Girl Summer, but have you met her zen twin sister Calm Girl Fall?
Calm Girl Fall is about levelling up your habits and letting go of unnecessary stressors so that you can relax and enjoy the last months of the year. If you’re desperate to develop a routine or make a change for yourself, we’ve got you! Here are three simple steps you can take to make the most out of this season of life:
1. Find a routine that works for you
When you know what you expect, your stress levels will decrease and you’ll have more time to chill out. Start simple. It can take around two months to form a new habit, so don’t try to do everything at once. For example, if you want productive mornings and to spend more time looking at the fall foliage than looking at your phone, start by heading to bed earlier or setting screen time reminders on your devices. When you set realistic objectives, you’ll be able to celebrate small wins and keep motivated. Make strides every day to improve your habits and add new steps as you go. Don’t be hard on yourself if you slip up along the way.
2. Prioritize your health
You know the drill! Fill up that emotional support water bottle, put on a cozy sweater, get outside for a dose of vitamin nature, and do anything else that sparks joy! Everyone’s healthy habits will differ. If you feel the best when you work out every day and keep to a strict diet, all the power to you. If you’re more into Hot Girl Walks with a side of pizza on the daily, we support you too. Think about what makes your mind and body happy and decide on a health-centric plan that works for you.
3. Let go of what doesn’t serve you
Your life doesn’t need to be scary just because it’s spooky season. If something’s holding you back, it’s time to let it fall from your life like the leaves from the trees. Self-care can look like setting boundaries, saying no, and doing things that bring you comfort. Be gentle with yourself and practice self-compassion as you work through this season’s challenges.
Don’t let negative emotions, habits, and people stop you from getting to where you want to be before 2023. You can stress when there’s snow on the ground.
Until then, let’s celebrate Calm Girl Fall together.
