Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had an amazing time ringing in 2015…I know I did! I love the new year and the chance to start fresh! In honor of this, here’s my four suggestions on how to start the new year off right:
Dream boarding is so fun and such a great way to remind yourself of your goals, daily. I had a blast making mine! I highly suggest you put on a good vinyl and light some candles while creating this! It put me in such a relaxed and creative mood.
(DreamBoard above is not mine you can see who’s board it is by clicking the picture…sorry guys, I have some secrets for the future on there I can’t divulge just yet..hehe)
2. Daily Affirmations
Daily affirmations are a wonderful way to stay positive. Even on my lowest days, they always make me feel better. Something about saying what I want and believe out loud always puts a smile on my face. Here’s a couple I say everyday that I found on this great Huffington Post article:
– Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
– My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil.
– My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.
– My thoughts are filled with positivity and my life is plentiful with prosperity.
Everyone has their own way of saying/doing their affirmations…even how many they do a day. I have 15 that I say three times daily. Once in the morning, afternoon, and right before I go to bed.
3. Gratitude Jar
This is my handmade Gratitude Jar for 2015. It was so simple to make and cost under $10. I got all the supplies I needed at T.J. Maxx. Again, you can do so many different things with Gratitude Jars. Personally, I put one good thing that happened to me, something that made me smile, or something that made me thankful in the jar each day. If you miss a day, don’t worry about it. This is not supposed to be stressful. I love doing these jars because it’s the perfect way to reflect at the end of the day and realize the truly amazing and beautiful things in life.
I just started this book on Monday. So far, it’s amazing and incredibly helpful. I won’t divulge too much because it’s a book that everyone should experience for themselves. It’s definitely taking me on a positive journey. I try to read at least 10 pages of a good book a day!
I love all these tools so much. It’s such a great way to stay positive in such a negative world!
