Be bold this autumn with tips from this post sponsored by LISTERINE® and Socialstars. #LISTERINE #BringOutTheBold
My favorite time of the year is autumn. It’s like Tom Hanks’ character in the movie You’ve Got Mail said, “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies.” Switch out New York for Oakland, and school supplies for adorable sweaters and everything warm, doughy and with apples, and that describes my feelings perfectly.
Something about the fall makes me feel like it’s a new year and I can start over or freshen things up in my life. While most folks make resolutions for the new year, heading into September, I’m armed with a list of things to get done before the holiday season begins. I am a beast during the autumn months. Maybe it’s the mild weather that makes me feel so bold, but I get things done.
Take a class or pick up a hobby.
I know this seems silly since the fall is such a busy time, but I learned a long time ago the importance of having something scheduled and consistent that is just for me and that makes me happy. Get a gym membership and go a couple times a week. Sign up for a 6 week adult education class. Find the time for an activity that is relaxing and fun so that you can have the energy to continue to be a boss with the other stuff you’re working on.
Update your style.
Before you head into the fall, go through your closet and get rid of the things that don’t make you look good. If something is old and worn out, throw it away. Pick up a few timeless pieces to update your wardrobe for the fall, and you’ll be glad you did. With all of the social activities that you’ll be invited to over the next few months, having a wardrobe that’s streamlined and that you look fly in will make it easier for you to say yes!
Focus on your health—mental and physical.
As awesome as the fall is, the winter can be brutal. Do some health work now so that you’re strong and prepared for the cold times ahead. If you have been meaning to make an appointment with a therapist, do it now. If you have been putting off getting your teeth cleaned by your dentist, call and schedule it. LISTERINE® HEALTHY WHITE™ RESTORING Anticavity Mouthrinse is a great way to keep your teeth looking good and your mouth healthy, too.
