Your Free Printable July Calendar
Welcome to your free printable July calendar! Use this calendar however you wish to help keep you organized in July.
I create these calendars because I find that having a monthly calendar to hang on my fridge helps to keep me organized.
I also like to write about all the mental health dates in the month, in case that helps to get you thinking about how to work on your mental health as well.
Without further ado, here is this month’s calendar.
July is pretty quiet for mental health dates (seems to be a summer lull).
- All of July – Talk to Us Campaign by the Samaritans
- July 11 – Cheer up the Lonely Day
- July 30 – International Day of Friendship
Other July Dates
There are also a couple of important holidays in July
- July 1 – Canada Day
- July 4 – Independence Day (US)
- July 9 – My birthday (Ok, this is sarcasm. But yes, it is. If you’d like to cheer me up on my birthday you can buy me a coffee.)
Talk to Us Campaign
This is a campaign to spread awareness about the Samaritans in the UK. Are you aware of this organization?
They offer support services for you to call if you are struggling. If you are in the UK, you can reach out to them here.
Cheer up the Lonely Day
Sometimes, the best way to cheer yourself up or feel less lonely is actually to go out and try to find someone else to help.
On Cheer up the Lonely Day, give some thought to people who might be feeling alone, like older adults or those who are isolated.
Consider sending a postcard or letter to someone who you think might be feeling lonely, to cheer them up.
International Day of Friendship
This is another good day to reach out to the people in your life.
Don’t have any friends? This could be the day that you reach out to someone who you would like to get to know better.
Or, it could be the day that you finally sign up for that class or course you wanted to take, or join the local gym, or just go for regular walks through your neighborhood.
The best way to make friends is to just keep showing up to the same places and seeing the same people (and learn how to make conversation).
I’m Canadian, eh? So of course Canada Day is a holiday for me. It’s probably not for you (most of my audience is in the United States), but if you are Canadian too, I hope you enjoy the holiday!
Leave a comment for me below so I can see how many Canadians visit this page.
Being Canadian, I don’t have a total handle on Independence Day. But, I imagine it filled with red, white, and blue and lots of outdoor time.
If you have social anxiety, this might be a day when you feel anxious about spending time in a large gathering.
Or, you could view it as a time to practice social skills or make some new friends. It’s all about how you see it.
As I mentioned above, this is my birthday month. If this is your birthday month too, how will you celebrate?
Leave a comment below to let me know when your birthday is and how you plan to celebrate. Is social anxiety getting in the way of having the celebration you want?
Or do you wish everyone would just leave you alone?
I know for myself, I enjoy planning out what I do on my birthday myself. I’m not really into surprises or others planning things for me.
If that’s you too, leave me a message in the comments! Or if you have any good suggestions or ideas of things to do on your birthday when you have social anxiety, I’d love to hear about those too.
That’s all for the July calendar. Make sure to grab your printable above. And, if you’d like more printables specifically to help with social anxiety, be sure to sign up to the Resource library at the top or bottom of this page.
