The end of the year evokes many different moods in us. We are often surprised that the next stage is coming to an end, which requires us to make some summaries, conclude, and plan what will happen in the coming months. The New Year is not only a contractual date but also a moment when we can and should stop.
When we analyse the last year’s events, we often feel the unfulfillment and regret of unfinished business. Full of hope, we make new lists of New Year’s resolutions, expecting this time, we will succeed. How to change this ineffective annual scheme? How do you enter the New Year with contentment and openness to future events?
One way to end the old year on a good note is to make valuable and quick effect moves. Here are some tips on what we can do to feel that we are ending the passing time well.
Order in the wardrobe
On the occasion of Christmas cleaning, we can make a selection of our clothes. As you know, we wear a small part of what we have in our wardrobes, and it still seems to us that we have nothing to wear. Let’s look it through, and maybe it’s worth making space on the shelves. You can sell the forgotten pieces of clothes off. Another way to dispose of them is by giving away items we haven’t reached for even once in recent years. You’ll feel lighter and open for what is to come.
Change your habits
The end of the year is an excellent time to analyse your habitual behaviour. We may want to make some changes here. We all know that developing a new habit – better or healthier – requires working for several weeks. Statistically, we need min. 21 days for our brain to qualify a given activity as routine and perform it automatically. Daily walks are a good example. And research shows that brisk walking is the best form of physical activity without any risk. You can combine this simple and undemanding training with walking the dog daily. So, let’s pack the necessary accessories, such as a leash or harness, e.g. those from the BB Republic line, and set off for a more intense, extended walk. Surely our pet will be grateful to us for it!
After a year, I have undoubtedly collected many photos on various devices. During these few days off during the holidays, we can spend one evening reviewing and cataloguing our resources. Usually, we capture most of our crucial moments with the camera on the phone. So it is worth moving our preciouses to a safe place, describing, and copying them to an additional disk so as not to regret it when the camera fails.
