- Set realistic and attainable goals - there are 365 days in a year for you to achieve your goals. So try not to start off the new year with a massive goal that, let’s be honest, you probably won’t achieve because it’ll end up being too hard. Instead, set yourself a bunch of small goals. Then set daily or weekly targets to help you reach these. You’re more likely to feel ready and determined to reach your goals if you can tackle them in bite sized pieces. Once you’ve achieved each goal, you can then set a new goal, or tackle a stretch aspect of your current goal(s).
Get plenty of sleep - our bodies (and minds) repair and restore themselves while we sleep, which helps us to function well the next day. So, be sure to get in your 8 - 9 hours as this is one of the best ways to feel fresh, and ready to tackle the new year. Having trouble sleeping? Try using some of this lotion - you’ll be sleeping like a baby in no time!
Do some exercise - not only does exercise help keep you physically fit and healthy, but getting the blood flowing is great for your mind. Plus, there’s the endorphins your body releases when you exercise, which is always a good thing. Keen to do some exercise but wanting to ease into it? Why not try yoga - it has a ton of benefits for your body and mind.
