Turn Over a New Leaf

Make a few changes and enjoy the autumn transition

So you haven’t had that back-to-school rush since you were 10. That doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of this transitional season and get your mind, body, and soul ready for the upcoming year. Amanda Young, a holistic health counselor at Centerpoint Yoga Studio in New York City, shares a few tips that will help you feel focused and energized before the first leaf drops to the ground.

1. Define your future.

Coming into fall, it’s easy to feel stuck in a rut. “If you are at the same job, if everything in your life is the same, then you can start feeling depressed and heavy,” Young says. To avoid this seasonal pitfall, Young says to try a future-building exercise.  Start by making a list of things you want to accomplish over a short period, like in the next week, then extend it to list more long-term goals. It sounds basic, but by defining what you want to happen in your life, you feel more focused and have a better sense of where you want your life to go, which is the first step in making your goals a reality.
