With new year looming, I thought I would share five easy ways to start your new year off to a fresh start.
1. Unfollow people you no longer need to follow
Let’s be real here, do we really need to go into a new year following people on social media we no longer associate ourselves with? The answer is no. It might seem like an awkward thing to do at first, but cutting ties with those we no longer see as adding value to our lives can be an exhilarating experience. I promise, you won’t miss a thing.
2. Get yourself a new diary/planner
There’s nothing more motivating than a fresh new planner or diary. Get yourself a cute one from Kikki K or Kate Spade and start getting into a routine of using it daily to plan your days, weeks and months in advance.
3. Write a list of resolutions or goals for the next year
Lists are a great way of clearing your mind of all the goals you intend to achieve. Write yourself a list of all your intentions for the year and keep it where you can see it everyday. It will be a constant reminder of what you want to achieve.
4. Clear out your house/bedroom
I don’t know why, but new year brings a out a ruthless side of me. I find myself throwing away things I have been hoarding for far too long. Take the time to tidy, cull and rearrange your room or house. After all, a tidy house equals a tidy mind.
5. Finish what you started
Now this might seem like the most annoying thing to have to do, but it is important for your own peace of mind that you finish what you started. Whether it’s errands that need to be run or completing commitments you said yes to back in the previous year. Cross off your old to-do list and you’ll feel so much better for it.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get ready to smash 2018!
