Is It Too Early To Start Planning For Christmas? I Think Not

I know what you’re thinking… it’s only September, why am I already chatting about Christmas..? Well my friends, Christmas is only 3 months away and whether you like it or not, it’ll be here before you know it.

Suddenly it’ll be December and you’ll be rushing around the shops trying to get those last minute gifts and worrying about whether or not you’ve got enough food and drinks. And that is exactly why I’ve decided that September is the perfect time to start planning for Christmas!

I love Christmas. I look forward to watching all the cosy Christmas films, singing cheesy songs, and eating so much food that you feel like you’ll burst. I know that it’s just one day of the year, but honestly, life is way too hard to not say “f**k it!” and have the greatest day ever.

In saying that, I know that Christmas can be a stressful and chaotic time of year, so let’s get planning now to make it easier..

Why September Is The New January

Now, in late summer, it feels like a strange limbo. We set goals in the new year but so many of them have been forgotten. Our self care routines and healthy habits have been forgotten throughout the year.

Typically people see January as a fresh start. January is a time for setting goals and reassessing our lives. But I would say that September is a great time for that too.

September is the start of the academic year. Young people are gathering their stationery, readying their uniforms, and organising their planners. Even if you aren’t in education, you can’t help but get swept up in the fresh start of it all.

The back-to-school feeling that comes with September offers us a new opportunity to slow down and reassess. We can work out what got lost along the way and change whatever we need to.

Setting goals in September is a whole different thing. You know that you only have four months left until the year is over so you don’t have too much time before you start the new year and wonder what you did all of this one.

Luckily for us, September still has longer days with plenty of sun for us to enjoy. With the longer days, we have more time to live our lives purposefully and work on our goals. We get to enjoy the sunshine while reading or walking around the local park. This is the main difference for me when it comes to setting goals in September instead of (or as well as) January.

Days in January are short and dark. The night arrives too quickly and we find ourselves living more of the hygge lifestyle. But September days are longer and warmer. There’s more time in the days. Use this time to work on yourself and your goals.

September is the perfect time to work on you. Take some time to reflect and see how you’re feeling. If you’re burned out, then try to see if you can slow down or take a break. If you have goals or tasks that you want to complete, then take some small steps towards the end goal.

September is a new start and it’s time for you to work on making yourself happy.

No matter how your year has been so far, September is the perfect time to take a step back and a deep breath. You don’t need to wait until January to start again. September is the new January.
