6 Things I’m Doing NOW to prepare for the New Year

Yes. It is merely November and I’m already out here yelling “New year, new me” for the 2016. Don’t get left in the dust! There is no better time than the present to start thinking about how you’re going to tackle the year. Here are some things that I’m starting NOW to make sure I sashay into 2016 on top!

1. Cleaning My House

Y’all know me. I’m messy. And sometimes ( many times) I let things get so cluttered that I can’t even think straight or feel comfortable and relaxed in my space. Next thing you know, the clutter is so overwhelming and it takes SO much to straighten out. In 2016, I want to work on my energy. That includes my living spaces. I want to make sure that when I get home, everything is peaceful and zen. Screaming kids are enough, I don’t need my space to scream as well. Feel me?

2. Planning to Plan

More often than not, I suffer from some form of analysis paralysis which leads to procrastination, all because I fail to plan properly. I leave everything in my head and try to unravel it later and, well…no…it doesn’t work. I spend so much time thinking about what I need to do, when I need to do it, and how I’ll do it, that I’m exhausted before “go time”. Not this year. I already said in my newsletter that I will be using a planner to get me right for the 2016. You know what they say: prior proper planning prevents piss poor performance…so we’ll see how that goes.

Get a new planner...and actually use it.

3. Taking Inventory

My clothes, shoes, email subscriptions, refrigerator, contact lists, EVERYTHING. If it’s not contributing to good energy then it must GO. That simple.

4. Creating Design Plans

We bought our house in July 2014. I’ve made the tiniest amount of progress on decorating, but my main problem? I just don’t know what I want. So I’m taking time to figure out what the heck it is that I want in each room, so that when I see it I can buy it.

5. Re-setting Goals

It happens to the best of us. We set goals, things shift and we lose sight. But that doesn’t mean that we can NEVER try again right? So I’m coming for everything that I didn’t carry out last year AND some more.

6. Highlighting the Positive

I think positive energy will┬ábe the theme of 2016 for me. With that said I want to try to make sure that I’m in control of my moods, emotions, and thoughts. One way I plan to do that is by dedicating some time each day to pointing out 5 positive things to focus on. I don’t want to let negative things take up residence in my space so, I’ll choose to focus on everything that is good.
