How To Start The New Year Off Right

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:

1.  DreamBoard

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.

4.  “The Untethered Soul”  by Michael A. Singer


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!
