What better excuse to add to your stationery collection, than making plans? With the challenging first bit of the year over (yay), you can really begin to focus on the rest of your year, and spring is on the way, which is always a beautiful time for a fresh start. It’s a great chance to consider the various aspects of your life that make you the most happy, the areas that you feel need improving, and the things that you’d like to say goodbye to during 2019. Therefore, grab a pen and that new notebook you treated yourself to, and begin writing down your thoughts and making some lists.
Getting it all down on paper can be therapeutic, as you don’t have ideas whizzing around your head, making it a bit foggy. You’ll be able to ensure that changes feel more manageable, and ticking things off will become addictive. The following are some areas of your life that you might think need changing so that you can enjoy the adventure of your best year yet, and get excited about all those plans you've written down.
Feeling Your Finances
Whether you’re into making travel plans, lengthy brunches, or shopping trips galore; it’s a smart idea to keep track of your cash regarding your spending, and most importantly, your saving. Therefore, it’s worth checking out some money saving tips so that you can get the most out of life, whatever your budget might be. Get your list ready (physical or digital) and start thinking about all the little things that you spend your money on daily. Even things like replacing a takeaway latte and cafe sandwich with a nespresso and homemade sandwich, for your lunch, a few times a week, can be a great way to put money aside for a lovely weekend lunch with friends instead. It really is about smaller, manageable changes, so making note of things along the way will help you see where you can impact things.
Organising Your Environment
Whether you’ve binge watched the whole of the Marie Kondo series on Netflix, or not (you totally should); there’s no escaping that a messy environment can be overwhelming, making it difficult to make the most of the space. Therefore, it’s time to get tidying, deciding what to keep and what to sell or giveaway, and organise your interior environment better so that finding things, and living there becomes a dream. Wardrobe are always a great place to start; it might be worth listing the items that you know you can’t live without so that you can put them to one side. Then, set yourself some rules; perhaps if something hasn’t been worn for over a year, or, you forgot you had it, it’s time to say farewell. Selling the items that you no longer utilize, is another great way to top up those funds that were mentioned beforehand, so, surely it’s worth sorting out as soon as possible? Your lists will become your new BFFs, and those little changes will ensure that your 2019 is full of fun and happiness.
