Write Out a Plan
This is where you determine what you’d like to accomplish this season. Do you want to make more money? Do you want to travel? Do you want to pick up a new hobby? Write all of these things down and keep them visible. Taking a look at this list frequently will motivate you even further to go out and get it.
Start Each Day With Positive Affirmations
Before you can start anything with a clean slate, you’ll need to be kind to yourself first. Try by expressing gratitude every morning, and reminding yourself of what you’re thankful for. It could be your health, family, career, or all of the above. Also, try saying something positive about every day. “I am hardworking,” “I am a great listener,” “I am confident” are all excellent places to start.
Slot in ‘Me’ Time on Your Calendar
Along with being nice to yourself, you need to spend time with yourself. Get out and do the things you like to do, and try doing them by yourself. I can’t stress how important it is to have alone time and really learn what your needs and wants are. Since we’re all busy little beings, be sure to block off time in your calendar to get your proper dose of ‘me’ time.
Get Enough Sleep
You won’t be able to go out and get what you want if you’re too tired to do it. Make sure you’re getting a good amount of sleep every night in order to be able to start fresh every day. I get it, sometimes you work late and sometimes you have late-night travels, but this is very important for your wellbeing and your health. Catch some Zzz’s!
Move Your Body
Staying active is actually a great way to clear your head. Putting all of your attention towards a workout class or a jog for 30 minutes is a great way to unwind and prepare for whatever is ahead. After moving your body, you’ll feel refreshed and ready to conquer the next thing on your to-do list.
Leave the Past in the Past
This is a tough one. However, still holding on to things that you can’t fix from the past won’t let you start over at all. If there’s any chance at all that you can move on from something that’s been bugging you, do your best to keep going forward. Don’t let anything hold you back when trying to start fresh.
