Simple Indulgences for September

As the kids go back to school, you can go back to *you*. . . your schedule, your friends, your goals. Here are ten simple indulgences to celebrate this season.

1. Invite your girlfriends over for a Back-to-School tea. Have lots of “pamper me” items in hand. Do you – or any of your friends – know a massage therapist? Ask her to come and do backrubs. Eat decadent pastries and drink coffee or tea. Catch up on everything you’ve missed during the hectic summer.

2. Go on a hike or a bike ride all by yourself.

3. Start a circle journal to keep in touch with your friends. A circle journal (aka. “a round robin”) is a book that goes back and forth among friends, each of whom add a special contribution before passing it on. Here are more ideas on how to start your own: http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/mag/articles/article.1002. p1.html

4. Treat yourself to a new magazine subscription.

5. Buy something red.

6. What are you most passionate about? Start a home business that somehow relates to this passion. Autumn is a great time of year to get a business started. The kids are back to school and it’s before the hustle of the holidays.

7. Find or start a book club.

8. Make a brag book or mini scrapbook album depicting 10 things you love most about your spouse or child(ren). Present it to them as a “just because” gift.

9. Choose a charity that you and your family will support this season. Researching the charity will be a fun family activity – and then you can brainstorm all the ways you can raise money for this organization.

10. Know a good soup restaurant? Order takeout tonight. And don’t forget the fresh bread!
