Late nights and even later mornings, tons of delicious food, classic films all day, lots of shopping in the sale and most of all, seeing friends and family. #LivingLife
Sadly, that all comes to an end for most of us on the 4th of January 2016. Yes, it’s back to work and back to that routine that we were ever so good at.
But it’s not all that bad, think of the positives.
RE-LIVE ROUTINE – Although it’s nice to eat what you want, sleep as long as you like and frankly be super duper lazy, in reality, it’s not very practical. You’re not achieving anything or making the best use of your time which is as I like to say, ‘procrastination at its finest’. Create a manageable routine where you can work hard, but play harder and I assure you, you will achieve way more than without one.
GO WITH A PLAN – It’s the perfect time to really start your New Year’s resolutions. Did you want a pay rise? How about a quick educational crash course to brush up on your skills? Or even a career change? Whichever one it may be, the first day back in January is the best time to do it.
START AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON – I am the biggest preacher of this. It’s 2016, a fresh start. So any ‘wrongs’ you did last year that you want to put right this year, start NOW. It’s never too late for a second chance and mistakes are our biggest teachers.
DO THE THINGS YOU DIDN’T DO – Join the gym (which sadly I didn’t do last year) start a new hobby, get a new wardrobe, talk to that guy you have had your eyes on or even volunteer at a charity for the day. There’s no time like the present and new beginnings can only be a positive one.
However, my main tip and motive I will be using next year is to just have a healthy, happy and successful year. Grasp opportunities, always be kind and make every experience educational and 2016 will surely be prosperous year for you.
Make sure you thank everyone who was a positive part of your 2015 and be grateful for another year.
Happy New Year!
