Goodbye, triple digits, and hello cooler (well okay 80-degree temps)!
As we adore the golden hues of September, there’s a sense of change in the air.
It’s a time when the warmth of summer gradually gives way to the crisp embrace of autumn. With this shift in seasons comes the perfect opportunity to set new intentions, embrace fresh experiences, and make the most of the month ahead. That’s where creating a September bucket list comes into play.
A September bucket list is more than just a collection of whimsical dreams; it’s a powerful tool that can enhance your life in countless ways.
Creating a bucket list can help you stay motivated and focused. When you have a list of things you want to accomplish, see or do you’re more likely to stay on track and work towards experiencing them.
Seize the Seasonal Temperatures
September is a unique time of year, characterized by the beauty of changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and the anticipation of the holiday season. Creating a bucket list tailored to this season allows you to fully immerse yourself in the joys it brings.
Bucket lists encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. Whether it’s trying a new hobby, exploring a new hiking trail, or experimenting with a new recipe, you’ll expand your horizons and gain valuable experiences.
Plus it’s good for improving cognitive function, to try something new!
By setting specific goals and activities, you increase the likelihood of creating memorable moments. These are the moments that you’ll look back on with fondness and cherish for years to come.
Improved Well-being: Achieving items on your bucket list can boost your self-esteem and overall sense of well-being. Each accomplishment brings a sense of pride and satisfaction, contributing to your happiness.
Have you ever said, “Where did this month go?”
I know I have said that countless times. Creating a monthly bucket list encourages better time management. You’ll find yourself making the most of your available time, avoiding procrastination, and becoming more efficient in your daily tasks.
So, as September unfolds before you, consider taking a moment to create your own September bucket list. Fill it with aspirations, adventures, and activities that resonate with you. By doing so, you’ll not only make the most of this transitional month but also set the stage for personal growth, memorable experiences, and a deeper appreciation of life’s beauty. Embrace the season, seize the moment, and make this September truly unforgettable!
Go Apple Picking
Visit an orchard and fill your basket with crisp apples. Try your hand at apple pie baking afterward - try Mrs. Olson's Apple Pie recipe, it will become one of your favorite family recipes.
Take a leisurely hike to soak in the changing foliage. It's the perfect time for a picnic in the great outdoors, grab your hubby, a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers, and have a fall picnic.
Read a Book
Cozy up with a good book and a warm beverage. My latest book is Peter Attia -Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity.
Attend a local fall festival or fair.
Gather around a campfire with friends or family. Roast marshmallows, tell stories, and embrace the cooler evenings.

Start a gratitude journal. Write down something you're thankful for each day throughout the month. I do a gratitude journal every month! It's fun to look back at the previous seasons.
We are all blessed.
