August is a time of the year when you want to take a beat and slow down. The excitement and busyness of fall is right around the corner, but it hasn’t quite hit yet.
In other words, August is the perfect month to embrace tranquility, which is why it’s Silk + Sonder’s August theme. The Oxford English Dictionary's definition of “tranquility” is “the quality or state of being tranquil, calm.” For some people, embracing a sense of tranquility comes easily in the month of August, while others may have to put more effort into achieving this elusive state.
We have mini-meditations available on the Silk + Sonder app for this very reason, and we recommend everyone try them. And trust us, these are doable, even if you consider yourself “someone who doesn’t meditate.” Coloring can be a great way to do this as well, which is why we always have a coloring page in every new monthly journal.
But in the meantime, positive affirmations—particularly peaceful affirmations—are a great way to bring the theme of tranquility into your day-to-day life. Try saying or writing any affirmations that speak to you every day (or most days) for the month of August. You may be surprised by how quickly they bring you a sense of tranquility.
And if you want to take your journey a step further, we have found these 25 journaling prompts for tranquility, too.
If you’re not a Silk + Sonder member yet, you can completely overhaul your self-care journey for less than $1 a day. Shop our monthly wellness journals here.
