2017 is here and with each New Year year the pressure of becoming the greatest version of you weighs down on us all. Resolutions are not my thing. I’m just not into self inflicted pressure just because the date changes overnight. If you’re full steam ahead on your resolutions, great! I am happy for you. It’s just not for me.
I see the change of a year as a time to declutter my mind, home, and soul. A time to plant seeds of new thoughts and inspiration. Nothing in life that is truly wonderful happens overnight.
Here are a few things I plan on working on in the New Year. Blooming gracefully…
Taking care of my mind and body
2016 flew by like a tornado ripping through a small town. Before I could blink each day was ending before I could eat a healthy meal or take a sip of water. So far I have started each day with a glass of lemon water and ended each night with at least 10 mins of gentle yoga.
Simplifying my surroundings
Any form of clutter has always had a negative affect on my productivity. This year I have started Spring Cleaning early. I have purged my closet and workspace of things that no longer speak to me making room for the things I love & space in my mind to create!
Create a vision board
My vision board is a blend of an actual board that I can hang inspiration on and my good ol Pinterest account. This past week I actually took time to look through the things I’ve been pinning and read the articles associated with the image. It’s always fun to delete the Pins that you actually accomplished too!
Like I said earlier, change doesn’t happen overnight however the decision to be self aware and in the moment can. I choose to live each day for that day and enjoy the simple things in life. Doesn’t that sound way better than stressing over what I should have done by the end of 2017?
Happy New Year!
