Hello October

New Month! New Season! New Goals!

 I’ve spent all weekend thinking of what I want my focus for this October to be and I think after all that I would like it to be a focus on Energy and Minimalism.

 As the days get shorter and the weather outside gets colder I can already feel myself going into hibernation mode. Fall and winter feels so long and dragging when you spend all your time hiding from the world.

 This year I want to make it a focus to avoid hibernation and to have more energy to do more things.

However, I have just spent probably a total of 5 hours trying to plan all the things that I want to do and focus on, and I have gotten quite overwhelmed. As I started to read over the very busy calendar that I wrote out for my self I had an epiphany. Instead of trying to half way do everything; I should focus on starting and finishing a few things. Embrace Minimalism 

Daily Habits

In order to be successful in changing my lifestyle to include more daily adventures, I need to start focusing on using my time better. This last while I have noticed that the time I spend watching TV and browsing online has increased exponentially! So this months Focus is cutting back on Non Productive screen time.

I still have all the lists that I have been writing saved, so as long as I focus on productivity every day, I will eventually do the things I want to do, without all the stress of a very busy schedule.

30 before 30 list

If you’ve explored through my blog you have probably seen the list that I wrote of 30 things that I want to do before I’m 30. I really hope to manage this but I am quickly running out of time. My birthday is in April and I still have all 30 Items on my list. This month I have decided to set my self two in the forms of 30-day challenges.

  1. Start a yoga practice
  2. Get better at photography

 Fall Bucket list Challenge

my last focus this month is going to be the Fall Bucket list that I created for this blog. In order to create a sense of community, I intend to make these Bucket lists of mine a group thing. Download my PDF here and Follow me on Instagram (@simpleadventurer2016).  Document yourself completing the fall activities and use the Hashtag #Lifesimplechallenges to join in the fun!

 I think that with the holiday season approaching, working to have more energy, and to live more simply will take a lot of the stress out of my life. I often let the season get the best of me and I spend most of my time stressing gifts and decorations, holiday events and baking. This year I would like to take a step back and from all of the stuff and instead appreciate the time spent. I think that this month will mark a step forward in my intentions to live a life of adventure.

 

Happy Fall Adventurers!!

  1. So I’m an April baby too and have a countdown until 30 (granted I’m still 27, lol). Best of luck on your list ma’am!

  2. Happy October! These are great goals! I believe you can achieve them all! I am also trying to cut back on TV-time. I hate the quiet so tend to have Netflix on in the background while I multi-task. Not only is it a waste of electricity but I also have to go back and re-watch a lot of shows because I was not paying attention! Ha!

    1. Oh I do the same thing!!!

  3. I love the simplistic look of your blog. It flows nicely and feels good. Following!

    1. Thanks! It’s a work in progress but I’m happy with my start!

  4. I recently just started yoga and it truly makes you practice minimalism in a way I never thought it would! I really loved your goals for fall and your bucketlist! Great post!

  5. […] my Hello October post I told myself that I would not hibernate and with the first snowfall, I pulled up the blankets […]
