Start a gratitude journal.
Keep track of things, people, and events you're grateful for throughout the year. "It breathes new life into you.”
Make time for family.
With the busyness of our daily lives, it can be difficult to prioritize spending time with loved ones, especially if they live far away or have hectic schedules.
Anxiety can nag at anyone during any season, in all parts of life — and it can be easy to let the idea of the future or past experiences inform your reality of the present. Practice mediated in the morning before the start of your day.
Read more books.
January is the perfect time to snuggle up with a new book. To keep yourself accountable all year long.
Commit to a healthier sleep routine.
So many issues can be traced back to a poor night's sleep. Commit to bed at a decent time to get a whole night’s rest.
Start working on letting go of all of that anger and not sweating the small stuff
Constantly feeling angry and pissed off, especially for women, can lead to less than desirable long-term effects on your holistic health. Chronic anger can impact the body in more ways than just one — it can increase headaches, anxiety, digestion problems, and high blood pressure, among other drawbacks. This is the time to reflect is it worth me getting so angry about this, or is it better just to chill it because it’s not worth it?
