The truth is this time of the year can be difficult. Many people struggle with the expectation of the season.There is the feeling that things must be perfect and everything must be ready as the calendar flips over the a new year. Today I thought I would share a few posts that will help prepare for a happy and healthy new year.
This is an older post but so relevant as we prepare for 2016. So many people talk about creating vision boards but either rarely do them or only half way take them seriously. There is much to say about visualizing what you want in life. What I like about this post is that Martha Beck discusses being aware of what society thinks should be a vision and what you think should be your vision.
The one thing we can be assured of is that life will be stressful in some form or the other. This playlist includes some of the best Ted Talks that focus upon everything from learning to accept that stress can be your friend, the importance of getting enough sunlight and the importance of practicing stillness.
Organizing and decluttering is often a main priority when the New Year enters. If you are not familiar with the Kondo method of asking if an item brings joy when making a decision to keep it, this post will give you an overview of the process. Over the next year I plan to focus upon the topic of having more things than you need and I hope you will become a part of the discussion.
Creating a Vision board is a task that many people plan to do but either do partly or not at all. Although this is an older post, I feel it truly examines the power of what a vision board can do and also addresses that what one places on the board shouldn’t always be what society feels needs to be on it.
Much like the self care tool box that I encourage everyone to create; a restorative niche is a place you create in your life to do things just for you. It’s important to become aware of what activities renew you and to make time to recharge your battery. As you prepare for the new year, think about where that space would be and what activities need to be included.
