Ahhh, can you smell the fresh new year in the air? I don’t know about you but it gets me thinking about how I can improve myself. There really is no better time to try to create some good habits for yourself. It’s the only time I’m motivated to do so and I’m sure you feel the same way too. I’ve put together some great habits you can bring into your brand spanking new year.
Make Your Bed Every Morning
There is nothing better than pulling back the comforter and getting into bed at the end of the day, but when my bed is a mess from the morning – it’s just not the same. I know you may feel like it’s a waste of time, especially if you are rushing in the morning but just do it. You won’t be sorry.
Make a To Do List every night
Since you are on your phone at night laying in bed checking your Facebook, go ahead and use a notes app to make a list of things you know you need to get done tomorrow. Rather write it down? Make sure you have a pad and paper right on your night table ready to go. If you are like me, I stay awake making lists in your head anyway so if you can brain dump it and not have to remember it, you’ll sleep much better.
Check Your To Do List and Calendar When You Wake Up
Now that you’ve written it down don’t forget to go back in the morning and look it over checking things off as you go about your day. Check your calendar either on your phone or your agenda depending on how you like to keep it and remind yourself of any appointments you may have that day. If the things on your list are to be done in the future, be sure to add those to your calendar at this time.

Self Care Every Day
Every day? Really Dawn? Before you freak, I’m not saying you need to go out and get a pedicure every day and spend lots of money. All I’m saying is do something to make you feel good and improve your appearance. Take an Epsom salt bath, exfoliate your face or body, shave those legs (yes, even in the winter) just do something for yourself every day. Put it on your checklist so you don’t forget what you are going to do.
