New year, new beginnings! And just like that, we are in 2020. Gosh, that happened rather fast?
One of the best things when entering into a new year is that you can start fresh, basically close the old chapter and start writing a new one!
Maybe you have written all of your New Years resolutions and have already ticked off some boxes, or maybe you have not quite filled out the whole list yet?
Some of you might not even want to do the typical new year’s resolution thing this year, so you have just decided to stick with a to-do list!
Whatever it is you are doing and have planned for this year, I thought it would be interesting with a follow-up post on how you can prepare yourself for the new year.
When a new year begins it is very often normal to feel a bit stressed, but also relieved. You start reminiscing on the year you had, the accomplishments, what you have managed to tick off the resolution list from the year before and you can`t understand where the months have gone.
It is normal to feel this way and January month can be tough for some!
Thankfully a new year means a new beginning and we can all take a deep breath because we have been given the chance of making 2020 even better!
7 Things You Can Do In January To Win The New Year
Do a big tidy-up
It is time to clear out the closet, the cupboards in the kitchen, the basement, the loft, wherever you have stuff stored.
Clearing out your home and making some changes is the first thing you should do when entering into the new year. This is because you want to have more space for new things.
Also, doing a big clear up for the new year and getting rid of old things will make you feel more organised and things will feel tidier. Have you packed away the Christmas decorations yet? (me neither…)
Invest more time in books
There are plenty of free books both online and at the library. Why not start the new year by borrowing a couple of books and sign up to some free audiobook apps?
January is the perfect month to start learning new things and it`s always a good idea to start early since it helps on motivation and will help you discover new things!
Take a trip or book new holidays
January is the perfect time to book your holidays, because of the huge January sale. Have a look at the different sites and book your holiday for this month or the rest of the year! It is the best way to save money and you get to see some cool new places. How about a trip to London? Paris? Milan?
Sign up to the gym or write a workout plan
Oh well… we can’t avoid it forever! Now it’s the time to sign up to the gym and do what we planned to do a couple of months ago.
Working out regularly will help stimulate the brain, increase blood circulation, give you more energy and motivate you to do more throughout the day.
I have had a break since August so I can`t really say I have been very good at sticking to my work out plan, however new year, new possibilities!
Apply for Free Online Courses
I came over something rather interesting a couple of weeks ago, which is an online academy that gives you the opportunity to take a few free classes before signing up as a fulltime student.
Getting an education and a diploma has never been easier and I was quite impressed with how many graduates this brilliant website have each month.
The Shaw Academy gives you a 30 Day Free trial of the course and you can decide which of the courses you would like to take. They have everything from graphic design to personal beauty. I have signed up for two courses myself and I even got to decide the days I want to start!
This is perfect for anyone that wants to learn new things and get a diploma in a specific subject! What a way to start the new year?
Give yourself a makeover
New year, new you? Why not give yourself a makeover by either changing your hair, going for a manicure/pedicure or buying some new outfits? You totally deserve it!
At Savers they have lots of reduced beauty and hair products and lots of other things for your home.
