Getting a Head Start on Your Year!

Make 2012 your best year yet with some easy tips for staying happy, healthy and stress-free!

1 Organize your clothes!
Ikea Closet
A clean closet will make getting ready each day easier.Start by taking everything out and arranging clothes into "keep," donate" or "maybe" pies. Then invite an honest friend over to help decide on the "maybe" items. Categorize the keepers by colors, style, occasion or season-whatever method you're likely to stick to!

I love the closets/wardrobes from Ikea. They make it easy to key clothes so organize.

2 Sneak exercise into your routine!
Take a walk.

Experts say having regular workouts are a great way to improve your mood. It doesn't mean you have to put in endless time at the gym--- even walking an extra lap around your office or taking the stairs can help.

3 Change up your space!
Give your home a new loo with these quick, budget -friendly ideas.
  • Rearrange furniture- move pieces around or moved them from one room to another to give your space a new feel.
  • Paint Something- Putting a coat of color is a great way to refresh an old table or chair. For a more dramatic approach, paint just one wall. It can create a focal point for a room.  

4 Eat more green!
Experts say that eating a raw-veggie salad will fill you up and help you feel more energized. Get in the habit of having a small salad before lunch or dinner.

I am more of a baby spinach/spinach kinda gal. It has more nutritional value then your typical iceberg lettuce. 

5 Keep a journal!
This one I found at Target, Love Love it.

Keeping a record of your fun memories can increase your overall happiness. So getting to writing. You can keep a journal next to your bed, to jot down recent events that made you feel happy, thankful, or just life changing moments; this way you are able to reflect on them and understand source of the happiness.

6 Laugh it up!

 The simple act of smiling  can help generate positive feelings. So make fun plans with a couple of friends-- or if you're staying in, switch on your favorite funny TV show or movie.

7 just add color!

A bright shade-- even in small doses-- can perk up your mood. Pick up some fresh flowers, add throw pillows or buy a new rug in a vibrant hue.

I am really looking forward to the New Year.

What will you get started with?  Do you have some tips to start off the new year with?
