Each year everyone is vowing to make the new year better than the previous one. We all know we can never seem to complete our resolutions or keep them in the first place. Instead of making resolutions make goals instead, plus they are easier to cross off your list.
These 4 Tips will help you to begin your new year right.
Reflect: As much as you may not want to revisit what you did or didn't do the year before, you will need to do this to go forward. On a positive note take a look at what you have done in the past year and look at what you would have done differently. Set goals not to make those mistakes and cross them off.
Get a Planner: Remember the days when you had a planner? Yea thanks to our smartphones no one uses a planner anymore. But this is an excellent way to stop being codependent on our technology and go back to pen and paper. Seeing the list or goals you will need to accomplish will help you meet all you are looking to do in 2017. If you want to save the environment, use your technology but learn how to efficiently use it to get the most out of it.
Clean your Closets and Car: Decluttering can make all the difference in your life. Get rid of the garbage and excess you do not need it will make the difference. This also goes for decluttering of digital media as well, including emails and organizing photos.
Take time for you! To reflect on the goals, you need to achieve you might need to do some things just for you. This can include taking a walk alone, reading a book or just catching up on your favorite shows. We all need a little "me" time to get us back on track.
Just a few changes will help you overall improve your quality of life.
