It’s been a busy week behind the scenes. I’m preparing for a shift in headquarters for the next couple of weeks, and using this to my best advantage to spring forward with blog projects.
I’ve also been dreaming about Autumn lately. I woke up one cool rainy morning with thoughts of crisp leaves and chilled air running through my veins. I’m sure we have a bit of summer left to go, but I’m actually looking forward to the shift in seasons. Fall is always a productive time for me, with plenty of new ideas and changed perspectives. Are you looking forward to it as much as I am? Tell me in the comments.
My favourite things I’ve read online lately:
- Louise Androlia wrote “10 Things That are Non-Negotiable For Me.” What are your non-negotiables?
- “How to Simplify a Complicated Life” has some great tips for starting to declutter.
- If you wish you could feel happier, here are “3 Sources of Happiness That Aren’t Tied to People Or Stuff.”
- Here are “10 Toxic Habits that Drain Your Energy.” I’ve gotten a lot better at #4, but still struggle with #3.
- You know I’m all about the importance of quiet dreams, well Mara Glatzel wrote about the importance of quiet revolutions: “In Celebration of Your Quiet Revolutions.”
- I love this idea Grace Quantock came up with. She was dreading winter, so she came up with a list of all of the things she likes about the season in order to adopt a more positive outlook: “Wellness in Dark Weather: Grace’s Winter Love List.”
- People tend to be pretty averse to change. We also come up with some pretty fabulous excuses to stay as stuck as possible. Leo Babauta outlines “The Lies Your Mind Tells You to Prevent Life Changes.”
- Sarah wrote “7 Pure Essentials for Spontaneous Magic.” Because Quite frankly, who couldn’t use a little more magic in their lives?
- She also wrote “Adventures in Self-Love: How to Stop Gossiping.” I relate this back to the post I wrote about the real reasons to stop judging. I think it’s pretty hard to love yourself if you’re gossiping or judging all the time, so check out Sarah’s article for tips on how to stop.
- And finally, since Autumn’s on my mind, here’s some advice on “How to Layer Your Summer Dresses for Fall.” I know I’ll be experimenting with this in the next while.
‘Til next time,
