I love the start to a new year. I am one of those people who doesn’t get sad after holidays, I get excited about a fresh start. The new year is a great time to start new habits, set goals, etc. So what’s not to love? There are 6 things to always do at the beginning of a new year that I find VERY helpful and can really make you excited!
6 Things To Always Do At The Beginning Of A New Year
Set Goals and Intentions: This is one of my favorite things to do. You can actually read my entire 2023 goals post here along with my word and intention for the year. I love doing this and then making smaller monthly goals to help me reach my overall yearly goals.
Clean out ALL THE THINGS: I feel like the day after Christmas I start this and go on a tangent about cleaning and organizing everything. But mostly this is a purge. I go room by room, drawer by drawer, and get rid of everything and reorganize. Nothing feels better than starting the year with an organized space.
Create ONE new habit: For example maybe this year you want to drink 100 oz of water a day or walk outside one mile a day. Just one thing you can add to your list. For me this year it’s doing daily brain dumps to help ease my anxiety. With a spiral notebook and a pen. Nothing fancy. One page a day.
Get a good workout in on day 1: Yes this is so key! It’s a great way to start the year and get back into the groove after all the indulging. I love to do a long Peloton ride and even a long walk if I can.
Switch out products/toothbrushes etc: Doing this on January 1st is great because then you know when to switch them out next. Changing toothbrush heads, razers, makeup that’s expired, etc.
Do a deep clean: The floors, baseboards, all the appliances, toilets, etc. Start the year with a fresh, clean out. Even light a candle. Or if you’re like me switch your Pura diffuser to a fresh scent!
