Start the new year fresh

Try something new with your appearance
1. I dont know about you, but Im inclined to stick with something when I know it works. And then keep doing it for a million years, well past its expiration date. These days that means wearing my hair down, NYX liquid eyeliner in Glam Golden, Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, Old Navy Rockstar jeans in ridiculous colors and a pair of weird black boots I found at an antique store on my birthday. .....
Get rid of the clothes you dont love and dont wear
2. Now, you should know that getting rid of things? Its, like, my second favorite hobby. But cleaning out your closet and getting rid of the things that dont fit you, suit you or please you anymore its a great thing. I promise youll feel so much better once your closet is pared down to things that look great on you and bring a smile to your face. You can even make a few bucks off your old clothes at a consignment shop. .....
Clean out your car
3. Goodbye empty Cheetos bags, two extra ice scrapers and orphaned mitten. Vacuum out the sand left over from this summer, splash out on the $8 automated car wash that includes a wax and switch to a new air freshener. I did this after I went through a bad break up and it was oddly cathartic. Well, that and getting rid of all his old mix cds that were still in the glove compartment. .....
Organize your email photos online profiles
4. Do you have email folders? Dude, you need to. Even if those folders just consist of friends, work, misc. important and funny pictures of cats I promise you will feel so clean and smug when your inbox is not 254 emails deep with spam and emails about Christmas presents.Spend a bit of time organizing your various online haunts. Maybe weed out a few Facebook friends, adjust your privacy settings, delete your Vine account, print out your favorite Instagram photos. Again, youll feel all clean and smug, I promise. .....
Change up your fitness routine
5. Im talking to you, self. Sure, 30 minutes on the stair climber listening to Beyonce is awesome and better than nothing but how about a ballet class? Or aqua aerobics? kettle balls? hot yoga? Youll work different muscles, meet new people and probably have heaps of fun wearing that awesome flowered swimming cap. .....
Reevaluate the relationships in your life
6. This is something that I dont think we do enough. Are you happy with your partner? Are you headed in the same direction? When you look at them, do you think Howd I get the best one? Is everything pretty good, but a bit boring? Take stock of whats working and whats not. Think about ways that you can spice things up and reconnect. Have adventures. Try something new together. Have Big Important conversations.
And what about your friends? Do they inspire you and support you? Are they full of life and fun? Do you look up to them and respect them? We all know people that drain us and suck the joy out of any interaction. Maybe its time to let those friendships go? Im not suggesting some epic breakup conversation, but maybe limit yourself to hanging out with them in groups, or allow them to initiate plans for once. .....
Clean out your cupboards and fridge
7. Not unlike your closet, you surely have things wallowing in the depths of your fridge and cupboards that are never going to see the light of day. Canned beets, anyone? Commit to eating them up, toss them or donate them to a food shelf. Give everything a good wipe down and then stock up on yummy, nutritious food that you love feta nutella mandarins. .....
Update your resume
8. When you have a job, its easy to let your resume rot in the depths of your hard drive, but why not spend a few hours spicing it up? Update it with new skills youve learned at your current job, experiment with different fonts and layouts, make sure that all the dates, emails and phone numbers are current. You never know when youll need it. .....
Clean out your bathroom cabinet
9. I wont bore you with those statistics about how makeups shelf life is supposedly three weeks or some such, but why not toss those old prescriptions, the frosted lipstick and that shampoo that makes your hair weird. Give everything a wipe down, wash out your makeup brushes and buy yourself a few new products youve been meaning to try. .....
Change out your ringtone alarm screen saver
10. Yes. Download something new and fun. Why not wake up to sound of Josh Ritter or Rhye? Wade through the gillions of gorgeous photos on Unsplash and find something new for your screen saver. .....
Try a new scent
11. Aromatherapy is for real. Why not try a completely new scent for your home? Or a perfume thats completely outside of what you normally go for? Im usually all over what I call cougar scents musky, spicy things that make me smell like a 50 year old woman who flies first class, drinks too many martinis and pinches the bums of stewards. But Im going to give something light and floral a try. .....
Switch up your surroundings
12. You dont need to engage in an extreme home makeover to get the feeling of a new space. Switch out the shams on your pillow cases, put some different pictures in those frames, put something different in that decorative bowl, replace the venetian blinds with some thrifted curtains, paint an accent wall a color you love. You dont need to break the bank to see a huge difference. .....
Make a list of new things you want to try
13. Im in the process of trying 25 new things, but you can try any number of new things. And they dont need to be epic, expensive, life changing things. Cook something with lemongrass, Watch Citizen Kane, and Try Hip Hop Karaoke are all equally valid. Its just important to try new things. .....
Spend 15 minutes thinking about your finances
14. Check your credit score, see how much money you still owe on school loans and think about upping your automated payment. Even just $30 more a month can make a big difference over the course of 10 years Make sure youre actually using all those monthly services you pay for Hulu+, Netflix, the gym, etc. Could you do without them? Take a minute to look at your 401k are you topping it out? And if you dont have a 401k, get a Roth IRA. Its soooo much less intimidating than youd think. .....
Put away the holiday decorations in a timely manner
15. When the holiday festivities are over, the decorations, ornaments and other festive trappings can be popped back into their boxes and bags. If you leave this too long, it can feel like a chore and can also have the effect of holding you back from moving into the next experiences. Don't feel like you have to get rid of it all in one day. Remove things little by little, ideally between Christmas and New Year's.Ask family and friends to help tidy away the seasonal decorations to make it easier. .....
Look over your New Years Resolution list
16. Write the list out on a planner, chart or calendar where you can make notes. In order to get your resolutions underway, it's probable that you'll need to do some planning and organizing, and perhaps even some purchasing. It helps your focus to make notes and lists to direct your efforts in starting new habits.Is there any gear, equipment, food, clothing, etc. needed to start your new fitness/eating/exercise regime? Or perhaps you need new hobby or craft materials or new sports gear. Write down the needed items so that you can work out whether you already have what's needed or need to buy, beg, borrow or freecycle it.Do you need to book memberships, travel, subscriptions or any other service to aid the resolution? If so, write this down too.Write down anything else of relevance, alongside those resolutions.In some cases, breaking down the goals into short term and long term milestones is necessary to ensure you don't flag in your willpower. Write down any milestones you think will work for you. .....
Focus on organization
17. If you're already wonderfully organized, skip this step. But many people aren't and this can inhibit feeling like the new year is a fresh start.Are there piles of papers and books on the desk and floor? Clean them up in short bursts here and there (stealth cleaning).Do you have trouble finding things, from keys to socks? Look for simple solutions, such as hanging up a key holder and setting up a special lost sock basket. One method is about training, the other is about acceptancefor example, you can train yourself to put things away but you can't account for missing socks until the mate turns up, so have a safekeeping zone for such items.Hate cleaning? You could try to convince yourself it's exercise, a moment of Zen or a chance to throw out your mate's junk but it's better to find help. Delegate the cleaning jobs to others as much as possible and try to arrange it so that you're doing what you're best at. It's overwhelming to be the person responsible for it all, so stop trying. .....
Relax more
18. If you're not in the habit of relaxing, start the new year with a resolution to add this important activity (or lack of activity) to your life from now on.Spend a little time browsing through books and websites devoted to relaxation ideas. What sorts of relaxing opportunities appeal to you? Not everyone agrees that the same things are relaxingsome people find adrenalinpacked activities relaxing while others would rather slump in the hammock with a good book. It's your choice, just so long as it relaxes you.Almost everyone finds spastyle activities relaxing. This might mean a weekly bath by candlelight with big bubbles (and maybe some bubbly), a massage (at home with a loved one or paid for at a spa), yoga, meditation and the like.When you get a chance, take a relaxation break on Saturday or some other appropriate free day or afternoon. Get your rest, have some friends over for a spa party if you want, or just be alone. You can give yourself an oil treatment, manicure/pedicure, and whatever else will make you feel good and look good. .....
Clean your work or study space
19. Going back to work or college/school after the holiday break can leave you feeling a little out of sorts. Tidying up your desk, locker, backpack, or whatever else you have where stuff accumulates can help you to feel refreshed for the new year. Throw out last year's junk, file away important information where it belongs and give everything a good dust or wipe down. Refill anything that you're running out of and if you can, place a pretty plant or photo on your desk to cheer yourself up.For backpacks, satchels, handbags, laptop carriers and other bags Don't carry around unnecessary items Things you don't need in the bag are clutter that increases the bulk and weight and might scratch items like laptops, phones and valuables. .....
Reflect over the past year
20. Think about things you'd like to do better this year, new things you'd like to try to people you'd like to make amends with or start over with. Have you achieved the things you wanted to in the past year? What specific things would you like to change or redirect? Asking yourself questions about progress, change and where you want to be right now can help to keep your perspective fresh, giving you new motivation to make this year a more fulfilling one.Anything you regret saying? Anyone you wish you could apologize to? If there are people that you owe an apology to, apologize and make things right with them. You don't want to worry or regret anything when you start the new year.Was this past year so great you don't want it to be a new year? Great, make a scrapbook or diary entry about how great this year has been. But tell yourself the new year will be even better. Build on the lessons you've learned and keep the good things coming. .....
Convince yourself that you want a new goal
21. No goal is achieved without commitment. Have you ever observed someone pursuing a goal and said to yourself, That person is a true believer. True believers are easy to spot because they are defined by their commitment. Are you a true believer in your goal? Are you committed? If not, shift your perspective. Dont allow yourself to be comfortable with circumstances that do not advance your goal.Want to know that you will succeed before you step out of your comfort zone? Guess what? You dont get this guarantee up front. The miracles in your career happen when you say yes and jump in. .....
Create your game plan
22. Having a plan is vital to your success. With a plan, success is yours. Without a plan, you will be working far harder than you have to. A plan adds organization to your goal because it details specific actions and steps to get there.Creating a plan will prevent your goal from becoming overwhelming. The temptation to feel overwhelmed is normal. Your plan will give you comfort and help you succeed. There is no right or wrong way to plan. Your plan can be formal and long or uncomplicated and short. Heres how to create one Take your career goal and break it into smaller pieces. Get out your calendar and write down the specific small pieces you will do and when you will complete them. Tweak and make changes as you implement your plan. Use your plan to encourage and guide you. After all, your plans underlying goal is for you to have an exceptional year. .....
Look at your goal every day
23. If you create your goal, and then put it away, your words will have no value. As the year progresses, youll soon forget what you cant see. Looking at your goal regularly makes it gradually a part of who you are.Look at your goal every morning so you can start your day with focus. Look at your goal every evening, so it stays with you in your dreams. Looking at your goal, and contemplating it, plays a large role in making it real. .....
Start small
24. Are you in one of these two places You have no idea what should be the next step in your career or, You do know, but havent done anything about it yet.Either way it doesnt matter. Now is your time to move forward. Start small. Small steps increase your confidence and lead to completing other small steps. Small steps taken regularly are more effective than larger steps taken inconsistently. Slow and steady wins the race. .....
