Tips to override the September Slump

Tips to override the September Slump

Intense.

That's the word that comes to mind when I think about the last few weeks. Back to school, back to work, back to reality. Intense.

I've made it a daily habit to pause and step back from my day. And what I'm noticing is that this time of year begs for a little creativity, play and spontaneity!

On creativity + play...

Instead of over-structuring our two young sons' mornings and rushing from activity to activity, we gave them time to just play and be creative. Exhibit A:

On spontaneity...

This was a big week for me with the launch of The MoMentum Talks.

It was an exciting milestone for my business and a very empowering experience for those who attended. Exhibit B:

The day after, the overachiever in me felt like I needed to keep going but I knew that my tank was nearly empty.

I stopped to check-in with what was going on and realized how much self-judgment and fear I had around taking a break. Because I took a moment to check in, I was able to get clear about what I really needed: to go slow, not over-plan and savour what I had achieved the night before.

Otherwise, I would be engaging in my usual response: a demoralizing doy of OD'g on Netflix and chocolate.

This time around, I headed to our local coffee spot to surprise my husband who was hanging out there. We looked through some of the photos from the night before and just had an unplanned morning date. It was fun and I felt energized by the experience.
