September is the month of self-improvement, and although the year is almost over, it’s never too late to work on yourself! As humans, none of us are perfect and we could all use a little tweaking every now and then.
Though there is never a reason needed to start working on yourself (besides the things in question that you are improving), having months such as self-improvement September helps bring attention to those who may need to work on being more self-aware.
Below are some ways to celebrate Self-Improvement September and work towards becoming a better you!
Start a new hobby.
I think that we’re in a time now where everything is started with the intention to make money, which is great, but those things no longer become hobbies. Having something that you do just for the love of it or to grow can help build character in the long run. It is also nice to do something just for fun without the stress of being perfect or doing it a right and wrong way.
Reflect on your goals.
If you made goals at the beginning of the year, this is a perfect time to pull those out and reflect on what you have worked on thus far. check off any goals that you may have accomplished already and pick an unaccomplished goal (or a few goals) that you would love to begin working on this month.
Start reading a self-help/self-improvement book.
I, personally, love a good self-help book and actually find them helpful! There are so many different types of books based on your needs including financial, mental health, body health, etc. Self-improvement September is the perfect month to pick one up and start reading!
Create end-of-year goals.
Though a lot of us have created goals at the beginning of the year, some of us may have not created goals at all. Creating goals may not be for everyone, but it also doesn’t hurt to have a few things that you would like to work towards. The year may be almost over, but it is never too late to create goals for yourself!
Pick a habit to change.
As easy as it is to slip into bad habits, it is hard to change those habits. Sometimes we form bad habits without even realizing it. For example, many of us check our phones the moment we wake up in the morning. It happens so naturally that we may not even realize what we’re doing or how it affects us by doing this. Whether it’s giving yourself time in the morning before checking your phone or another habit you may want to change, use this month to start working on it and you just might become surprised with your progress by the end of the month.
Work on changing your mindset.
Lastly, working on changing your mindset is one of the greatest things you can do to help with self-improvement. If you already have a mindset filled with self-doubt or negativity, it will make it even harder to improve anything else that you’re working on. First start with your mindset and it could help so many other things fall better in place.
There are many different ways to celebrate the month, but these are a few easy ways to start working on your own self-improvement!
