2019 is well underway and now is the time where a lot of us will be thinking about starting a fresh woo or lives and cutting out all of the bad stuff. Rebooting and refreshing our life can be difficult when we are safe and comfortable where we are, but a lot of the time a major shift in lifestyle is exactly what we need to come to terms with our be situations and make sure that we can grow and develop into a better person. Here are just some of the things you can do this year to reboot and reset your life.
1. Reset Your Diet
Our diet is the most important thing for us to maintain for our bodies and it is the one thing which can keep us lean and happy. If you have fallen off the wagon due to Christmas and new year, it is time for you to hit the reset button and start bringing better habits into your diet again. This can include things such as eating more vegetables with our dinner each night, ditching the chocolate and soft drinks, and making sure that we eat a good balanced breakfast every day to keep us healthy.
2. Reboot Your Wardrobe
One of the hardest things we can do when we want to make a change in our lives is to open up our wardrobe and get rid of all of the items we never use. If you have a lot of clothes spilling out of your wardrobe and cupboards it is time to go through them and throw away anything you don’t wear. It is important when you come to do this that you are ruthless with it all and this will allow you to start fresh and wear only things which make you happy and things which flatter your body the way it should.
3. Redecorate A Room
If you own a house you will know that there is a constant battle with many different home projects and finishing your home for good can take years and years to do. However have you thought about at least tackling one room right now? One tool can make all the difference when it comes to redecorating and you can spend a few days stripping it back and giving it a much needed refresh. Changing one room in the house can make your home feel new and it might even spur you on to do the same with the rest of the home.
4. Refresh your mind
Sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves honestly is just sit back and relax for a while. It can be super hard for us to relax and refresh when we are constantly stressed and have a lot of tension in our bodies. This is why the idea of going on a relaxing break or retreat could be a good reboot for your system. Think about going for a yoga or a spa break with your loved ones and you will be able to just sit back and relax and be pampered for a little while. It will be exactly what you need for your life and it can be a great way to reboot and restart your life when you get back home.
5. Sort out your sleep
Sleeping every night is a crucial process which our body goes through and it is something which we should always look into having more of. Making sure that we have a good night’s sleep each and every night is super important for us and it can be the difference between a good day and a bad day. Make sure that you start to sleep in a more consistent pattern and always think about making sure you get 8 hours a night for your own health and well-being. Sleep is always important for us and it is something which you should never take for granted.
6. Reschedule your week
If you are looking to make a change to your lifestyle and you want to make a big impact on your life, you will want to take a look at your daily routine and change it up. If you do the same things on the same day every week this will soon become boring and it is never a good idea. Think about instead making a new routine and think about rescheduling your events and shopping days to a new day. This small change can impact your week and it will allow you to feel like you are doing something new.
7. Sort out your finances
If you really want to make a fresh start this year one of the things you will want to make sure that you do is look at your finances. Every day we often get into bad habits with money and shopping and picking up a coffee each day before work can add up and this can leave us with a big dent in our account. To make sure that you aren’t overspending be sure to make changes to your routine and start packing coffee and lunches each day for work. You can also look into paying off any debts you have now to save them accruing more and more interest later. Once you are debt free you can start fresh and create much better habits.
What are your goals?
When you sit down and think about your future in the next few years, what goals do you have and how do you think you will achieve them? If you can write down what you want to achieve and place it somewhere you often visit, it will keep you on track and allow you to run forward rather than backwards. And if you want to change the direction of your life you can set totally new goals and start working towards them instead.
9. One hour a day
If you are looking to achieve or learn something new in your life, one of the things you can think about doing is spending one hour every day doing this one thing. It could be writing a page of a book, learning how to cook meat, or mastering the piano… whatever it is if you can spend one hour a day on it you’ll be heading in the right direction.
10. Career reboot
It is always important for us to be happy in every aspect of our lives and unfortunately our career will often take the back pedal on happiness. If you feel as if you no longer enjoy your career and you want to do something else, you can make a stand this year and get out while you can. Starting fresh can be scary but it can also be the best decision you make for yourself in your life.
11. Conquer your fears
Fears are the devils of our lives and they can stop us from doing so many things. There are a lot to fears we can suffer with in life such as fear of failure, fear of heights and even fear of harassment and violence which can stop us from living our life to the fullest and making the most of every single day. This is why it can be a great idea for us to step back and assess a situation, and push through these fears for ultimate happiness. We deserve to be happy in our lives and we can be if we conquer the things pulling us back.
12. Build on your skills
If you already have a skill or two up your sleeve then now can be a good time for you to continue honing these skills and getting even better at them this year. Learning new skills can be difficult and sometimes we don’t need to learn 10 different things to be better in ourselves. Use a skill you already have and keep pushing and building on it and this can be something which will help you massively in your personal life and in your career too.
13. Start somewhere new
If you feel so stuck in a rut that you just can’t live a happy life anymore, the best thing for you to do is get away and start a life somewhere new. A new setting can be just what you need to keep you happy in life and being somewhere new can really help your self esteem and your confidence. You don’t have to move all the way across the world to a new country, however you could do. Moving to a new part of the world can be a great idea for some of us who need a fresh start and it can be the ideal place to learn who we really are. Being somewhere new and immersing ourselves in a whole new lifestyle can be exactly what we need to be happy and it can really help us to be more confident in our lives, and to grow into the person we want to be.
