Your Free Printable September Calendar
Are you looking for a September calendar? How did it become September already? Hard to believe for me. The kids are heading back to school soon, though it’s totally different from previous years with social distancing and other protocols in place.
As always, I’m providing you with a free printable September calendar to help you stay on track as we head into the fall.
I print out these calendars myself and put them on my fridge to write down important dates. I record things like appointments, birthdays, or vacations. I know there’s not a whole lot of socializing going on right now, but I still find it helpful.
September is also a birthday month for one of my kids, so I have to do some planning for that. I think this year it will be a small party at home with a sleepover. But that still involves a lot of planning, and then a bit of socializing with other parents. It just goes to show that even in the middle of a pandemic and with social distancing, social anxiety can still be problem.
Even if you are not leaving the house much, you might still have social obligations through work (such as Zoom calls), within your social circle, at the grocery store, etc. Do you have any new concerns that have been cropping up? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
There is only one specific mental health date in September.
- September 3 – International Podcast Day
- September 7 – Labor Day
- September 10 – World Suicide Prevention Day
- September 22 – First Day of Fall
International Podcast Day
Have you ever thought of listening to a podcast to help your mental health? In this post about the best social anxiety podcasts, I give you a list of ideas to get started listening to a podcast to help you with social anxiety.
Labor Day is a statutory holiday where I live, which means that most stores are closed and most people are off work. It’s also usually the weekend before children go back to school where I live.
If you’re looking for ideas on how to boost your mental health over labor day weekend, think of things you can do to nourish your spirit. If you’ve ever thought of doing a mental health retreat but can’t get away or don’t have the means, maybe you could try a virtual mental health retreat.
World Suicide Prevention Day
World Suicide Prevention Day is dedicated to making sure anyone with thoughts of suicide can find the help that they need.
If you are someone you know is struggling, you may wish to read this article about 54 alternatives to giving up on life. And if you are in need of immediate help, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273 (8255). If you are outside the U.S., there is a list of international suicide hotlines here.
First Day of Fall
Ah, the first day of fall. Fall is a time to start wearing cozy clothes, drinking tea (which can help your anxiety!), and putting on the slow cooker. For some people, it can also be a time when you struggle with seasonal depression or other mental health issues.
It’s important this time of year to pay extra attention to sticking to a routine and schedule. If you struggle with seasonal depression, you could also look into getting a light therapy lamp such as the Verilux HappyLight 10,000 LuxLight Therapy Lamp.
What do you have planned for September? How is the fall looking for you? Let me know if you print out the calendar and how you find it useful. I plan to continue updating these calendars every year, so I’m always open to suggestions.
