I have always believed that new year begin on September rather than on January!
In fact, in September with regret we have to say goodbye to the sea, to carefree days and relax in order to return the normal life....but..everytime our life changes after summer.
During summer days we normally meet new (inspirational?) people, we read magazines with advice and exhortations, we get a nice tan so at the end we feel excited and ready to start with some innovation in our life...
A different look, a different flat, a different hobby...for me most of the new project are born in this period of the year.
When I was a child in September I used to buy all the new items for school such as diary, pens, colors, notebooks and I convinced myself that I would be the perfect student this time 'cause with all this marvelous stuff it couldn't be different! :P
In these days the web is filled with back to school make-up or style tutorial, magazines suggest to don't stop doing sport, to drink relaxing tisanes and to arrive to the office with a new spirit!
But let's go see how our September can be magic in order to have a not stressful (or gloomy) return to our routine-days.
1 Yes, probably the hardest part of our re-entry is to go back to work and if you think there will also be present that collegue you hate is just worst!
Just learn to ignore him or try to explore his positive characteristics! Maybe he could become a friend for you!
At the end of every work day review your schedule for the next day, clean and tidy up your desk..next morning you will be more fresh!
2 Do you want a new style for you flat?
Go to IKEA and recreate a look for your apartment..play with colors and decorations... and why not? Add a little of green in your rooms! This can bring great benefits to your health (do you know that succulents absorb magnetic radiation?) and to your mind!
3 Create a to do list with some project you have for the year (a party, a travel, a new work proposal, ...).This is a customizable list so don't worry if your project will change :P
4 Subscrive to a gym, a swimmingpool or take dance lessons.
I suggest you a half-hearly or annual subscription, so you don't miss appointment becouse of laziness (since you have paid your lessons) and you will see soon some result. There are a lot of strange activities to try... zumba, parkour, pilates, burlesque!!! Dares!
5 Search some new tv program or series to passionate about during this new year!
Actually, I do this often during the year!:P
6 Find some nice place to go eat out or to just spent your afternoons or evening such as a new cafè in wich you can drink your cappuccino while reading or I don't know what!
Or, take a breath, keep calm and...move to London as I will!!!
..to be continued...
