October came and went very quickly. If you’re new here to this blog, at the end of each month, I like to reflect on how it went. I see how I felt and set intentions to work on for the next month. Without further ado, here’s my intentions for November:
Work on using more ‘I statements’
Give myself 20 minutes to walk away from a situation and cool down when I’m feeling heated or triggered
Drink more gut-friendly smoothies
Get more use out of my oil diffuser and make some fall/winter blends
Below you’ll find my ‘Intention Setting Worksheet’ so you can join me in setting your own!
Somehow it’s already October, which means another month to set intentions or in my case, try harder to work on last month’s intentions (hey, no one’s perfect). It also means it’s the season of watching Hocus Pocus and Halloween Town. In all seriousness, I believe that a new month symbolizes new beginnings and a fresh start.
Here’s what I’m focusing on this month:
Recite affirmations to myself daily in the mirror (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it)
Avoid spending money when I’m bored or upset (an intention I set for September and am still working on)
Cook more and try new recipes
Disconnect and unplug more to enjoy quality time with loved ones
Unfollow accounts that are no longer bringing me joy (Marie Kondo your social media)
Set your own October Intentions! If you need some a little inspiration or guidance in setting your own intentions, I’ve put together a worksheet to help you. If you want to share your intentions, comment below or tag me on Instagram @geenicolette.
If you’ve been keeping up with my blog then you know I love setting intentions each month. These are things that I’m striving to work on. I always encourage you guys to do the same but I know it can be tricky to come up with on your own! To help you set your own intentions for September, I’ve put together a worksheet.
Keep reading to find out what intentions I am setting this month.
My September intentions:
Spend more time outside and exploring nearby places
Enjoy time with loved ones
Pause throughout the day and take 3 long rounds of breath
Avoid spending money when I’m bored or am in a bad mood (yes, if you know me then you know retail therapy is my jam)
The other year I started setting intentions rather than New Year resolutions as a way to evaluate things I wanted to work on and change in my life. A few months ago while scrolling through Instagram, I saw someone post their intentions for the month. I loved this idea because our personal goals, mantras or things we are working on change month to month (sometimes even day to day). This is something I’m starting to incorporate into my life and invite you to do the same!
I’m sharing a few of my intentions for July:
Get my body moving everyday (morning and nighttime stretching)
Clean and get rid of things I no longer need
Read a book I’ve been wanting to read
Try new recipes
Show gratitude for loved ones and kindness to strangers
Be more present in the moment
Take more time tolisten
