set yourself up for some November spice

It’s a good idea to make November feel a little different. We need something to boost our creative metabolism and just improve the overall (bleak) outlook. Below you’ll find a list of things to do each day in November to help make life a bit more interesting!

I identify as an Enneagram 7, and one of the things we DO NOT suck at is keeping things spicy! We often side-step ROUTINE, but as we grow, we embrace the beauty of boundaries, and find that corrals actually harness our energy better than keeping everything open.

I have RESISTED goals for years. Despite what research shows about goals needing to be realistic and measurable, I preferred to keep things open and vague. (this is all very stereotypical seven, btw)

So, I’ve been EMBRACING realistic and specific goals, and it is juicing me up, y’all! So I thought I’d share some ideas to keep November spicy in case these types of things don’t flow naturally for you.

Don’t feel like you need to do something each day! This is for you, so make it yours. Keep it fun, and substitute your own tailor-made ideas for yourself! Let these inspire you.

Here’s to November being, not necessarily BETTER, but at least, DIFFERENT.
