The September Edition
Hi Cool Family,
Happy Fall Equinox! We often associate starting over or trying new things with the New Year, but Fall is also a great time to step back and reevaluate ourselves before we go back into our usual office or school routines. As such, I've decided to make self-improvement— both mental and physical— our focus for the fall season. If you haven't been keeping up with our blog, here's some of what you've been missing:
Tired of never having time for yourself? Sick of always falling behind on things? Trust me, procrastination was my enemy for years until I learned to restructure my life. When you've got tons of things going on, it's easy to dismiss everything as impossible. You just don't have the time. But as you become more efficient at running your life you also gain more time to do more fun, exciting things!

Now that we've talked about the importance of having goals, we need to talk about creating good goals.

A good goal, on the other hand, can build up your confidence and self-esteem in no time.
Goals. They are scary things when they feel unachievable. Sometimes it seems easier to not have goals at all. After all, you can't fail a goal you never set. But goals are important and beneficial for your mental and physical well-being. Here's why you should have goals year round— and not those half-hearted New Years goals either.
With the start of fall comes the start of Ride— or Bike— season! If you decide to participate in a Ride this fall, you certainly don't have to take it as seriously as a competition or a race. The most important thing is to have fun, so we've compiled a few things to get you ready for the big day:
Fall is here! That means students everywhere are trudging back to class—and maybe we should too. Fall is an excellent time to reflect on and improve ourselves before the hustle and bustle of the winter Holiday season. So sit back, sip on some apple cider, and flex the most powerful muscle of all: your brain!
I sincerely hope these articles are useful to you all. If you have any topics you would like me to explore in the future, or if you're interested in becoming a guest writer, just let me know!
