Nowadays, the “holiday season” begins the moment trick-or-treaters dump out their goodie bags and continues full force until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. That’s a long time to be festive.
Fortunately, an inspiring new year awaits, and it’s ready to help you switch gears and focus on simple ways to make your life healthier and happier. Here are some easy ideas to energize you in 2013:
Eat healthy. Sometimes something small—like a new cookbook, a fun kitchen gadget, or a tabletop herb garden—can inspire you to totally rethink the way you eat. Give it a try.
Breathe easy. Ward off winter blues by inviting a few new houseplants into your home. Did you know these hard-working beauties naturally clean toxins from the air and help reduce stress and depression?
Tidy up. Keep a caddy filled with cleaning supplies under every sink in the house. Buy great-smelling all-natural cleaners and fresh sponges so that quick touch-ups become an easy habit, not a chore.
Stay sharp. The garden is slumbering, but it will wake up before you know it. Prepare by getting your tools cleaned, sharpened, and lubricated so they’re ready for planting season.
Find balance. Last but not least, carve out time for exercise. Whether it be a long hike or your favorite yoga class, it will help you gain the strength, flexibility and balance you need to take full advantage of the fun that awaits you in 2013!
Happy New Year!
