October – things are getting chilly now!
I really can’t believe how quickly this year is going – whats going on!?
We are now firmly back into routine with school and work etc… – and the holidays are a distant memory. However, this month brings with it Halloween and for lots of us a week (or two) of school half term holidays – which means a few things to look forward to.
So, without further ado, let’s get on and talk about some of the ideas and help on things to do in October, to make the most of the month and make it count.
THOUGHTS ON OCTOBER
Hopefully being back in the routine of school has helped you to get loads done last month, and this month should really be no different.
I love this time of year as we are now truly in Autumn, and are half way from the summer to Christmas. It gets exciting, and having things to look forward to helps get through the colder, darker days!
THINGS TO DO IN OCTOBER
#1 – GET PREPARED FOR CHRISTMAS
I know, I know – the last thing we all want to do is think too much about Christmas – but the fact is that it is coming – and being able to get ahead of the game when it comes to preparations can really help ease the stress of the lead up to the big day itself.
Why not use half term to your advantage if you have children as this can be a great time to start getting things ready in the house – or even starting to buy presents (my mum would always try and buy everything by the end of half term so that the more hectic weeks ahead didn’t have added stress, and this is something I have tried to do in my adult life as well – I can fully recommend it).
Another great idea for this month is to have a good declutter of your home. When Christmas comes round it will bring with it lots of new things and lots of its own clutter – and so having a sort out before hand can really help to create space for the new things Santa may bring us, or just get some clarity and space back.
