Is it just us, or has the year passed by unexpectedly fast? It feels like we just binge-watched a show and now we’ve reached the final episode. Regardless about how 2018 has been for us, we still need to get ready for the new year.
There will be happiness, perhaps some disappointment, and more surprises coming—but those are things that make life more exciting.
Before you embrace 2019, here are five things you can do to get ready for the new year.
#1 Time for a year-end holiday
If you still need to clear your annual leaves, then do it now! It’s the perfect time to rest and go for a holiday. Whether you choose to be abroad or a local tourist, you deserve a rest after a hectic year you’ve had. You’ll come back with new experiences, refreshed, and ready to take on challenges that are coming your way.
#2 Do a self-reflection on 2018
It’s important to look back at what you’ve achieved and learned throughout the year. Think about the highs and lows that you’ve experienced. We suggest that you write it down on a notebook so that you can keep them for the future too.
This will help you decide on your goals for 2019 and what your plans for the new year. You’ll be able to start the new year feeling much more prepared with goals in mind. You’ll also feel a sense of accomplishment knowing how much you’ve done throughout the year.
#3 Get a nice planner for yourself
Pass by any stationery store and you’ll notice that there are discounts for planners, and they come in so many designs! If you’re already a seasoned pro with planners, you’ll have no problem purchasing a favourite. But if you’re new at it, try getting one with monthly and weekly pages.
You can jot down your goals, expectations, and what you want to learn in 2019. You’ll also get a clear view of what you’ll be doing for the next few months.
#4 Clean your room
If your room is cluttered by your old things—bags, books, clothes, and makeup—it’s time to throw them out, sell or donate them. You know you’ll be accumulating more items when the new year is here, and the extra space would be help.
A clean room means a healthier you, so sweep, mop and vacuum your room until it’s sparkling clean before the new year comes. Set a reminder to do this every week so that your room stays that way—and you’ll develop a good habit out of it too!
#5 Re-paint your house
If your house hasn’t been changed for the last few years, then take the opportunity to do a re-paint. Make it a project for yourself, or get your friends and family to help you out—there’s nothing better than a gathering before the new year.
Give your house a new look for 2019; you’ll feel more refreshed and motivated to make other changes in your life too.
