JOURNAL & PLAN
Change your mindset, achieve your goals (you’ll be more successful if you write them down). Buy beautiful notebooks, colourful pens, a calendar and an agenda (start a bullet journal if you like to track progress). Free write thoughts and feelings, keep a gratitude journal, and schedule your time to prioritize your most important goals.
Read more books (fiction and nonfiction). This is one of our resolutions every year, learning from other people’s stories and advice (especially women’s) and carrying those written experiences and guidance with us throughout the new year. Reading is always an integral part of our wellness routine.
Reese Witherspoon’s book club has all the inspiration you need to help you reach your reading goals. Cozy up with her latest winter reads, newest fall books, perfect summer titles, incredible spring selections, outstanding picks from last fall, and her other amazing book club titles from the past year.
It’s the perfect time of year to cozy up and get crafty. Find a new passion or skill to carry with you into the new year. A creative hobby gives you something to be excited about, encourages you to unplug, and helps to keep your brain healthy and happy (key components of wellness).
Drawing, painting, photography, fibre arts (knitting, crocheting, embroidery, quilting/sewing, cross stitch, etc.), colouring, scrapbooking and paper crafts, calligraphy/lettering, gardening are just a few ideas (or join your kids in arts and crafts activities).
Check out a beautiful (and affordable) paint by number kit for adults to get you started.
Rain or shine, spend more time outdoors. Nature can have significant benefits for you physical and mental health. Boost your vitamin D, get fresh air and exercise, improve concentration and mindfulness, and notice yourself feeling happier, all from being outside.
