5 Tips to Organize For Your Best Year Yet December 30, 2017 – Posted in: Blog
It’s that time of year again. The fresh, rebirth of a whole new cycle of life is upon us as we are about to welcome 2018. The New Year can conjure up the feeling of a clean slate and a fresh start. It can also become extremely overwhelming when we start to write down all of our goals. Let’s break them down into digestible ways to have your best year yet, shall we?
Below are my Top 5 Tips to Organize Yourself for Your Best Year Yet:
1. Declutter Like Marie Kondo
Extra, unnecessary and too many. Ho many times have you said this when looking through your drawers and closets? If you haven’t used it/worn it in at least a year – toss it. Make room for abundance (and things you will actually use/wear).
2. Cleanse Like Mr. Clean
There’s nothing quite like open windows in December while cleaning (yes, this is FL and I was running the A/C as of last week). Wipe, scrub and swiffer the dust and frustrations you may have accumulated over this last year and bask in your sparkling, new surroundings.
3. Categorize Like a Kardashian
The one thing that I will say about the Kardashians is that their attention to detail when it comes to their homes (and closets) is like no other. Ultimate zen spaces aren’t just for reality TV. From cocktail dresses to your jewelry box, categorization is priceless. Categorize by color, style, or season and you’ll be able to easily grab and go when you wake up in the morning or when you’re getting ready for an special night out. Categorizing your jewelry in a way that is visually beautiful while still keeping it safe from heat/water/perfumes and oils will keep your jewelry long-lasting and organized. Keep your jewels in jewelry pouches (such as the Chelsea Bond Jewelry plastic pouches that are given with the signature velvet logo jewelry pouches), and arrange it by gemstone to stay organized year-round. When traveling, always bring your fabulous jewelry roll for easy viewing once you get to your destination.
4. Goal Set…Effectively
Everyone selling a yearly planner with beautifully bound pages and the promise of this being the year you’ll write down and fulfill every goal…is half-way telling the truth. I used to write down a page full of goals for the upcoming year, and feeling frustrated that I wasn’t crossing everything off of my list at the end of the year. Make sure you’re goal setting effectively. Instead of 30 things to accomplish, write down 10-15 and hit it full speed on Jan 1 (or maybe Jan 2 in case you’re slightly unmotivated thanks to one (or three) extra glasses of bubbly on New Years Eve.
5. Reflect Like a Pool
Balance out your efforts of goal-setting with a list of accomplishments that you’ve been able to achieve in the last year. It’s important to recognize all of the hard work that you’ve already done and it deserves just as much attention to setting new goals. Do not shortchange yourself.
Cheers to a brand new year and crushing your goals!
