For many of us, the start of a new year is the time to take inventory of all the ways we want to improve upon our current situations. It’s the perfect opportunity to wipe the slate clean, if we need to, and seriously consider the steps we need to take toward having the best year of our lives. It’s so easy to just go though the motions and make a generic resolution , but there is no time like the present to change your tune from ambiguous to action-oriented. Take a look at these 5 ways to get a fresh start and make the most of 2015.
Closet – “It’s so easy accumulate clutter in your closet throughout the year so getting back in touch with your wardrobe is a vital part starting the year fresh, clear and organized”, says Certified Image Consultant & Speaker Laurie Brucker. “How can you start any day fresh when you open up your closet door and are instantly overwhelmed?” Great point! Start the new year by making those tough decisions about what should stay and what should go in your closet. Laurie adds that, “For 2015, it’s a must that we get back to the beginning and clear out the long standing clutter that hides in our closets. It’s when we remove the clutter in our wardrobes, that we set the stage for removing clutter in our heads and in our lives.”
Home – It’s all too often that tiny messes in our homes wind up getting out of control. Instead of just tossing the things that don’t add any value to our lives, we instead accumulate a collection of junk. It’s time to get rid of it…all of it! Free your living space of anything that causes the look or feel of chaos and then implement some organization systems for the items that remain. Just like with our closets, Laurie’s advice can also be extended to our living spaces. She says, “When you can actually see what you own and love each and every piece truly, that is when you shine, your style shines and your day shines.” I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to shine!
