GetLiving October is brought to you by Leah Sully (California) & Cheyenne Estep (West Virginia)!
The end of the year is getting closer as we venture into October. Make this next month count by taking the extra step in supporting yourself and your community in Outstanding October.
One way to be outstanding this month is to check in with people. It’s not always obvious when someone needs support, so making more of an effort to be there can make a difference.
You can also be Outstanding in October by getting involved in your community. Joining an extracurricular activity or volunteering are great ways to benefit those around your (and yourself).
Don’t forget that in order to be Outstanding, it’s important to be mentally healthy. Protect your mental health by taking a break from your devices and doing some good in the world – it can be as small as holding the door open for somebody or surprising a friend with their favorite drink or snack.
Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a little while, or plan a time to catch up (and actually make it happen). Talk to them about what’s going on in their life. Focus on listening and making them feel important and supported.
Try something new! Join a club, or spend a day volunteering. Use this month as an opportunity to grow, support those around you, and be Outstanding.
