The mood in January is all about renewal. I am sure you are being bombarded with all the “New Year, New Me” stuff, the gym is at capacity for the next 3 weeks, and you won’t be able get on your favorite machine when you want. Ugh. January is like the Monday of the year. It’s like you have been chillin’ all weekend then bam, back to the grind. You make all these plans to do better and “live your best life”, but that seems to be more stressful than helpful in the end.

I stopped with the new year’s resolutions a while ago. I would make all these elaborate plans to lose weight, eat better, stay organized, ect…you get the idea. I would do great for a few weeks but then I would fall off. Then start beating myself up about how I didn’t meet my goals. I finally realized change isn’t about big drastic changes but small daily actions. So, this month I am focusing on the tiny leaps. Is your house a mess after the holidays? Don’t stress. Still not organized? Don’t stress. No resolutions just do better for yourself.

Good Vibes Only

Focus on things that make you happy. Create a Vibe board! Just make a board not only of things you want but things that make you happy. Make it pretty and put it someplace you can see it. I keep mine by my vanity.

Just Say Yes

Things not working out the way you want? Just try something new. Have you been lusting after that bright blue sofa? Go for it. Don’t be afraid to step outside of the box

Surround Yourself with Love

Get rid of things you hate. Keep things in your environment that you love. Detoxing your home isn’t just about organization. It is about creating a place where you want to come home. Remember your home is your retreat from the world.

Spend January creating and doing things that will not only make you happy but will set yourself up for good vibes all year.
