I don’t really believe in starting off the New Year with insane health goals. But I do believe in the excitement around a new time that can motivate you to be healthier and be a better you. I would never push for crazy diets or starting to overdo it on your work outs, but I do think we can all take a step to cleanse this year. It’s a great time to Marie Kondo your life and only hold onto things that spark joy!
- Go through your phone contacts
I had a lot of people in my phone that I haven’t spoken to in over 4 years or never really spoke to in the first place. I cleaned out my contacts mostly because I have a great fear of butt dialing random people, but also because it was time to just clear out the negative people and people who don’t add to my life.
- Clear the cupboards
I don’t think anyone should diet, but I do think everyone should evaluate what they’re eating and make lifestyle changes. I unfortunately work in a field where I see people pass away from preventable illnesses, I’m now trying to focus on what I eat just for my long term health and wellness.
- Donate old clothes
Let it gooooooo! I’ve actually been doing this bi-monthly. I’m at a point in my life where my style is changing. When I buy something new (actually I usually buy second-hand) I throw something in the donate pile. I don’t need an overflowing closet for any reason.
- Spring cleaning in winter
Have you done a full vacuum of your house or dusting or cleaning all your sheets and blankets? Sometimes we put these things off until spring, but it feels SO good to have a fully clean house, so why not do it every season?
- Skin care routine
Do you have a skin care routine? I don’t really, but I’m working on it. I’m becoming very aware of how old I am and therefore I’m aware of what my skin may look like in 10 or 20 years. I am trying to cleanse my skin and create a skin care routine that works for me!
