How to Prep for the New Year!

Hey lovelies!!

These are some of my favourite posts to read so I thought that I would give it a go myself and let you into some of the ways that I love to prep for the new year, making sure to cover as many aspects as I can! Next year is right around the corner and I am both nervous and excited about what adventures I will be taken on in the next 12 months. In the meantime, however, there are a few things that need to be taken care of in order for us to have the best possible chance of succeeding in making 2018 our best year yet! Read on my loves...
Change Up Your Routine:

From past experience, I know that being stuck in the same routine for too long can do more damage to your motivation and daily life than you think. I've had the same routine for a good few months whilst I've been at university and it hasn't had the best impact on my productivity - you get stuck in your ways and eventually get bored when it all becomes a little too rigid. So, when you're devising a new routine to start off the new year, think about your old schedule and ask yourself if it's enabling you to be productive enough? Is it allowing you to get the most out of your day? Are you really enjoying how your mornings begins or how your nights end? It's your life so feel free to mix up the tasks you have to complete in a day and keep your goals for the new year in mind to make sure that you're on track to succeed in every way possible!

Work Out Your Health/Fitness Goals:

No pun intended with that title haha! When it comes to my fitness, I always want to make it easy and enjoyable for myself so I've decided to pick two specific aspects to focus on. There is nothing worse than forcing yourself to abide by a strict and unattainable goal that you know just doesn't suit you. We all want to be healthier or to improve particular parts of our bodies so aim to narrow down the achievements you want to accomplish and break them down into smaller goals - it will be gentler on the mind I promise!

Rebrand of Social Media Accounts:

This is one of my favourite things to do because it works just the same as giving your wardrobe a complete turnaround. If you're anything like me and have your life on several social media accounts, it's easy to settle for a particular design on your blog, Twitter, Instagram or even Facebook page so why not make some changes! I love the feeling of going into the new year with new pictures for my profiles and banners too, as well as that much needed "Happy New Year" photo that graces it's presence wherever my social media footprint goes haha!

Get Organised:

I love and I mean LOVE everything to do with organisation - notes, lists, planning - the lot of it! I'm not the greatest example of executing every single task I put on those lists or in those notebooks but I'm hoping that the new year will grant me some extra skills that I can build on to make sure I actually succeed this time around. For what it's worth, purchasing some really pretty planners, journals, notebooks and other prepping material can certainly motivate you to make a start, give it a try!

The Last Few Hours of the Year...

Relax, rejuvenate and reminisce! I love to prep myself physically and mentally for the new year so I make sure to freshen up my hair, shave, exfoliate, moisturise, paint my nails and all of those other really girly things that I love to do - we all want to look good when it strikes midnight so get it all done early so that you're feeling your best self! Finally, take some time to reminsce with your family and friends about all the times that you've had together and aim to make the next year even better!
