It’s hard to believe that summer is over, and that Autumn is in full swing. Where do the days go? I recently had a yoga instructor make the most beautiful comment about the changing of seasons. She said that they were like a rite of passage – permission to close out the prior growth period of life and start anew – permission to refresh, renew, and revive yourself, your life, and your surroundings. Her statement struck me as one of the most beautiful, freeing things I had heard.
So, how does this fit into this month’s welcome letter? Well, you can apply it any way you like. From a simplicity standpoint, begin by applying it to your daily surroundings. Apply this rite of passage to your work environment. The design and layout of your treatment room, work area, or even full spa can benefit from the change of seasons.
Take a step back and look around. Does the layout and design of your work environment suit you? Does it allow for flow, access, and ease of use? Does it wrap its arms around you and invite clients to stay?
Take advantage of this amazing time of year to optimize your space. Move things around, add a little color, or change the direction of the carpet or the sign above the door. We spend more time at work than we spend anywhere else. When you optimize your workspace, you optimize your work life, which has a beautiful impact on everything else around you.
