Your Free Printable August Calendar
Welcome to your free August Calendar! I make free printable calendars available on this site for every month of the year.
I do this because I think a calendar is something that everyone can use. It helps to keep you organized, plan ahead, and think about what’s coming up.
I actually use these calendars myself! If you came to my house right now, you’d see the August calendar hanging on my fridge (if you’re reading this in August).
So, I’ve tried to make them as user friendly as possible. Yes, you will need to write in the numbers yourself, but that saves me having to create new calendars each year. Maybe someday I’ll have time for that.
Also, since August is kind of wonky you’ll need to add in some days at the end of the month. No big deal if you’ve ever seen how this is done on a regular calendar.
As with every month, I also like to let you know about mental health dates happening throughout the month (since that’s what this site is about!).
There aren’t a lot of traditional mental health dates this month, so I tried to get a bit creative for you.
There are no specific mental health dates in August! I’ve just listed the Canadian Civic Holiday below.
- August 3 – Civic Holiday (Canada)
Other August Dates
Here are some other dates of note in August if you are focusing on your mental health.
- August 2 – National Coloring Book Day
- August 2 (First Sunday in August) – Friendship Day
- August 8 – National CBD Day
- August 15 – National Relaxation Day
- August 16 – Tell a Joke Day
It’s actually the Civic Holiday here in Canada as I’m writing this.
It’s a holiday Monday here, which means that normally everyone would be enjoying a long weekend of gathering with friends and family to celebrate.
Things are little different this year, since the state of the world has restricted gatherings to 50 (or is it 100? I’ve lost count) and social circles to 10.
Yes, you can still get together, but everything is kind of confusing so most people have just given up on large gatherings (here in Canada anyway).
National Coloring Book Day
Have you ever thought of coloring for you anxiety? I have a whole post dedicated to coloring pages that you can order from Etsy and download and print right away!
You can also find coloring books on Amazon if you’d rather not print out coloring sheets. I’ve listed some among my art therapy resources on this page.
Where would we be without friendship day? If you’re struggling to make friends or don’t know how to strike up a conversation, be sure to read my article about how to manage conversation anxiety.
National CBD Day
Have you ever thought of trying CBD oil for social anxiety? I have a whole post about using CBD oil for social anxiety that you might find helpful.
Whether or not it will be easy to access CBD depends on where you live. Where I am in Canada it is relatively easy (thank you Justin Trudeau). The post I mentioned will help you determine whether it’s an option where you live.
National Relaxation Day
Seems like a natural segue from CBD oil to National Relaxation Day. When’s the last time you truly relaxed?
Tell a Joke Day
Finally, we end August with tell a joke day. I have a friend who regularly sends me jokes to brighten my day and make me laugh.
Do you have a friend like that? Or could you be a friend like that?
They don’t even have to be in-depth storytelling type jokes. Just one-liners. If you aren’t feeling in the mood, you can always visit Tik Tok for some inspiration. I have an account there if you’d like to follow along. (Just a warning, I’m not all that funny).
I think that’s it for this month! How do you use your monthly calendar? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
