The New Year is a chance to start fresh and new again! But for many, New Years feels like a time where the pressure is on to make large, and sometimes unattainable goals.
Instead of placing undue pressure on yourself to create a “Pinterest perfect” life, use these tips to make small, yet effective changes to the organization of your everyday life.
One Step at a Time
Don’t try to organize your home and life all at once! Instead, focus on one area at a time. Make a list of areas of your life that you would like to make more orderly in order of importance, and work from there. Perhaps one week you work on organizing your closet, and the next you begin to organize your kitchen. Not only will it be less stressful, but you will have more time and energy to focus on your smaller projects.
Begin your day with purpose
Leading a more organized life begins from the moment that you wake up. Create a consistent morning routine that helps you to stay motivated throughout the day. It could be as simple as taking a walk and eating a healthy breakfast, but trust me, it works!
So much of our day revolves around eating. That’s why meal planning is important. Sit down at the start of each week and plan your meals for each day of the week. I would recommend focusing on the most significant meal of the day, which is typically dinner for most people.
Focus on your health
Health and wellbeing is the foundation of an organized life. Without it, many of our goals can be hard to achieve! This year, put your physical and mental health first, taking the time to do the things that keep your well being in the best state it can be! Join the gym, start taking daily walks or just be more mindful of your health!
You don’t have to put yourself in high pressure situations this New Year to make meaningful change. The biggest changes always require the smallest of steps. Happy New Year, friend!
