Don’t look now but summer 2018 is coming to an end – and we’d almost forgotten about the crisp chill in the air and the back-to-school feeling that the new season ushers in. But it is here, and now is the time to refocus your priorities and refresh your routine, before the festivities of party season set in. Think about it as the new year, without all the pressures of January.
We’ve rounded up a few easy ways you can seize the new season energy and make the most of the last quarter of 2018. Let’s get started.
Our first stop is an obvious one: wardrobe. With the days growing shorter, the need for a winter coat will soon be upon us. And there’s no better way to shake up your office or casual attire than with a new coat. The 2018/19 season is all about checks – don’t be afraid to layer print on print in complimentary colours. Add some texture with a shearling jacket or a bold windbreaker. You’ll be kitted out for any weather that comes your way.
Moving swiftly on to fitness. The cooler temperatures in September provide the ideal opportunity to get your fitness back on track after a summer of indulgence. Start with plotting out a new running route. The evenings are still long enough for a challenging pavement pound but cool enough that you won’t feel like you are charging through the desert. Start with plotting out a new plan, throw in a new pair of trainers and you’ll be ready to get back outdoors.
THE CAREER GOAL
Last, but not least: work. Harness that post-summer holiday energy and refocus on your goals and priorities for the rest of the year. It’s time to knuckle down and barrel through the last few months of 2018. There’s still plenty of time to make this year even better than it’s been already and slide into the last few months feeling settled, fit and healthy. Here’s to the start of the last stretch. Let’s go!
