We’ve all heard the phrase “new year, new me” but do any of us really change after the ball drops? Unrealistic New Year’s resolutions fade within a week, but these five ways of getting yourself organized for an improved new year will stick and push you to develop healthy habits.
Set daily goals
Small or large, giving yourself goals that you have to complete will leave you feeling accomplished at the end of each day. Don’t start off with complicated tasks, but instead ease yourself in with someone simple such as “do the laundry.”
Perfect your sleep cycle
Getting yourself to bed at a reasonable hour every night will ensure that you feel refreshed every morning, which will improve your mental health and your ability to finish your goals. Making good sleep habits a part of your lifestyle will have you starting off the new year flawlessly.
Clean out your closet
There is no better feeling than that of having a clean, organized closet after months (or years) of unnecessary clutter. You’ll feel accomplished, fresh and ready to take on the new year with one less chore to haunt you.
Get creative with household objects
This trick will allow you to transform your belongings in a way that ignites your creative flame and allows you to feel restored for 2018. You’ll love the way your room looks and you’ll come up with exciting new ways of repurposing old objects.
Let go of procrastination habits
Developing a “now” way of life will push you to get more done without welcoming in feelings of dread. Getting things over with will open up more time for leisure, while it will also get you used to performing tasks in a timely fashion.
