Can you believe it’s already September? It’s a new month with new energy. I know that I’m sure ready for new energy and positive changes this month. I’ve been hearing from so many people, especially people with ADD / ADHD, that they have been more stressed and overwhelmed over these past few months than usual.
Sometimes we can’t control what life throws at us and stress and overwhelm become the norm in our lives. We often feel powerless when this happens and go even deeper into this heavy feelings. We do have the power to come out of this and improve our own lives even if we can’t change some of the circumstances.
Often, making a tiny change in our own lives can make a world of difference. Adjusting and shifting our mindsets just a little bit is one of those changes that can improve our lives. Sometimes we are able to make those shifts on our own.
Many of us need something or somebody outside of ourselves to help us begin those shifts. Who or what may be different for each of us. My intention is that this newsletter acts as a spark to help you with your own shift.
Since it’s a new month, my challenge for you is to think about what you want more of in your life this month.
If you accept this challenge, take it a step further and write down these things. When you write them down put them in the present tense as if they are already in your life.
Here are a few examples:
1. I am peaceful and relaxed.
2. I have a clean and organized home.
3. I am having fun and enjoying life.
4. I am healthy and well rested.
5. I am happy and successful.
Keep your list some place easily accessible and refer back to it regularly through out the month of September. Say some of the things on your list out loud. Picture or imagine what it is like to have these things in your life. Practice focusing on these things which you are ready to bring more of into your life.
Good luck! Here’s to an awesome September! Let’s all make it a great month.
