How to Be a Student of Life

Updated: Sep 6

September is a great month for moms—back to school, National Yoga Month, National Self-Care Awareness Month and Self-Improvement Month.

September is a wonderful month for busy moms and for personal growth and development! It’s National Yoga Month, National Self-Care Awareness Month and Self-Improvement Month.


This is the best time of year to launch something new—something you’ve been working on throughout the seasons. Around this time of year, I get so excited for the possibilities of starting something new with my self-observation practice by my side.


In Sanskrit, the language of yoga, self-study is called svadhyaya. When we observe ourselves, we develop greater self-awareness. When we take time to reflect on this awareness, we get to know ourselves better. When we know ourselves better, everything makes more sense.


Be a lifelong learner of yourself and observe instead of judge what you see.


It’s week 36 of A Second for Yourself—a 52-week mantra video series that encourages moms to take a second for themselves. For weekly mantras, subscribe to my Stand Up for Your Self-Care YouTube Channel.

Practice It: Observe Yourself

In the spirit of back-to-school time, what will you study about yourself this season? Let us know by tagging @JulieGtheYogi on Instagram or add a comment in this YouTube video.
