Many people tend to reflect on their lives this time of year.  From feeling gratitude to accepting hard truths, it can be a difficult thing to do.  Fortunately, author Nitika Chopra teaches us how to get through it with “Nitika’s Eight Love-Filled Ways To Prep For The Fall.”

The Fall can be an incredibly exciting, vibrant and love-filled time of year.  For many people it can also be a time to go in to a deep period of reflection, and it can even trigger many areas of our lives that still feel unsettled.


Almost like a pre-New Year’s Eve, the Fall can be very powerful, and I truly invite you to embrace all of it Beauties. Whatever you are feeling, just allow it to come up and be sure that you take care of yourself in the process.  I feel so grateful for all of the lessons I have learned this past summer, spring and even winter — even though they have been heart-wrenching at times, and I hope you can take some time to have true gratitude for all that has happened in your life this past year as well.

I know that some of this is easier said then done, so I made this awesome list of my 8 Ways To Prep For Fall.  I think it will really help you set powerful intentions for the new year.

Nitika’s Eight Ways To Prep For Fall

  1. Hug at least 5 people that you love before October 1st.  Tightly. Be present to your immense love for them.
  2. Allow at least one technology-free day.  Don’t feel obligated to answer texts or take phone calls, don’t post your every move on social media and let go of your over-flowing inbox.  Just be where you are on that day, in that moment.  This will allow you to recharge in a powerful way for long-lasting effects.
  3. Make a list of EVERY single thing that you are going to forgive yourself for from the past year.
  4. Tell at least 5 people how they helped you get through this last year.  Look them in the eyes or write them a thoughtful note and really connect with them.  That acknowledgment will be food for their soul.
  5. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes at some point on the first day you notice the leaves changing color.  No electronics and no interruptions.  Some people call this meditation, but if that word freaks you out still, then just allow yourself to reflect on all that has happened this summer and all that you wish to happen in the fall.
  6. Cook SOMETHING.  Doesn’t  matter if it’s a cake out of the box or a delicious feast for someone you love.  Cooking is an incredibly  therapeutic  activity that can really allow you to get grounded in the current moment and bond with those you love.
  7. Make a list of EVERY single thing that you are going to forgive others for from the past year.
  8. Claim your visions!  I love making vision boards before the summer ends because it allows me to craft the season or year ahead exactly how I want to.  So whether you are in to vision boards, a vision journal or just a prayer that you say out loud where you claim what you want, spend at least an hour claiming your visions for the season to come.
I hope you feel more energized and ready to take on Fall 2013.  Be sure to leave a comment below with your favorite way to “fall” into focus.  I would love to hear form you!  Sending you massive amounts of love Beauties!!

Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life — Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.TM Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.

What have you accepted in your life that took time, physically or mentally?
I have accepted that I have a curvy body! I am not a toothpick and I never will be, all I need to do is take care of my body and it will continue to take care of me.

What do you appreciate about yourself and within your life?
I appreciate that I take the time to get to the root of what is really going on in every situation. I don’t just assume or jump to conclusions, I take my time and do the work to authentically figure out the truth in situations.

What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What goals do you still have?
One of my most rewarding achievements is starting Bella Life and turning this experience in to getting my own talk show. I still have goals to grow my site to an even bigger one and to fully monetize the site.

What is your not-so-perfect way? What imperfections and quirks create your Identity?
My not-so-perfect way is that I am really sensitive. I always say it is a blessing and some times a “curse”. Because I am sensitive it makes me much more compassionate and kinder to others, but it also has me take things so much more personally which can get tricky!

How would you complete the phrase “I Love My…?”
I love my FRIENDS. I feel so incredibly blessed to have close friends that I can lean on for any and everything.
