Self-care September: 30 things to enjoy as the seasons change

The year is flying by and September is already here to stay! After a fleeting summer, it feels like it’s time to pack away our sunglasses and reach for our scarves already.

It can be quite an overwhelming time as the seasons change since we know we’re heading into colder weather and the end of the year is approaching, making us really reflect on what we have or haven't done over the past few months. 

Instead of feeling pressure and worry as another month passes us by, we’ve decided to head into September on a positive note- we are looking forward to Pumpkin Spiced Lattes after all!

To help make the transition into a new month and upcoming colder season easier, we’re sharing 30 self-care ideas, (one for every day of September) to help you feel relaxed and take the time to indulge in ‘you-time’.
