Reset your sleep cycle
Stressed out this year? Reset your sleep cycle. I suffer from insomnia. Now, I go to bed at a set time and get up at a set time. Orders from my doctor. It really works. No more late night television. No more sleeping in. Routine is very important. Here are more tips on how to keep your routine.
Make new friends
Join a gym or a club that focuses on something you are interested in. Another great way is to volunteer. Find a cause in your community and let them know you want to participate. Have a pet? Take them for a walk in the park. Talk to other dog owners. More tips.
Yes, I mentioned it before. But, not only will you have an opportunity to meet new friends, you will be doing your body a great service. In the end you will release those endorphin's that make you feel better. No one says you have to lift heavy weights or run a marathon. Start slow, feel good about what you are doing. Look at all the benefits!
Cupboards overflowing? Can't find anything in your closet? Now is a great time to reorganize your house. Start the year fresh and rejuvenated. One room or drawer at a time. Nothing makes you feel better than getting things nice and neat. Relieves stress and gives you more time. Some benefits on being organized.
These are only a few easy resolutions that aren't hard to keep. One step at a time, one resolution at a time, making your life better!
