There isn’t much time left before the start of a brand new year…
but don’t let that deter you from accomplishing more… And even if you haven’t accomplished much this year, it’s no indication of failure. Remember, it’s never to late to start. To help you get back into the swing of things, here are six small, but great things to do before year-end… The best part is, they don’t require a whole lot of time!
– Read a book
Need a place to start? We’ve made suggestions HERE and HERE previously. Books are a great way to spark your imagination, learn a new skill, and distract the mind from your daily happenings. All you need is one good one you can’t put down and you’re all set for the remainder of the year. If books are a little too much right now, save a few interesting articles you can binge on later. (P.S. Facebook has a great save function you should utilize!)
– Host a party
Parties are a great way to brush up on your cooking skills, plus we find it quite therapeutic and fulfilling (if it’s a success). Simply set a date, send your invites, make your menu, and decorate! The company, food, and change of scenery will lift your spirits just enough.
– Give your time.
No one ever feels bad by doing good deeds. This is the perfect time of year too since it’s the season of giving. So, volunteer at a shelter home, pack and wrap gifts for an orphanage, or tutor less-privileged children. You’ll feel a million times better, and may even make a new friend or two.
– Take care of anything you’ve put off.
Get on top of all those inopportune tasks you tend to put off til the last minute like doctor’s appointments, taxes, and winter cleaning. If you set time aside for it, you’re more likely to accomplish it, so schedule those appointments now! Tidying up before the holidays come in full swing means you can actually relax when they get here!
– Take an online course.
Online courses are a great convenient way to learn a new skill. You’d be surprised at how far they can take you in life. Our brainchild, Azalle, will be here before the end of year, and it’s going to be a major life-changer for our fellow bloggers, entrepreneurs, and anyone seeking that extra push. Plus, Azalle will make great gifts for your friends and fam. Watch for announcements – we’ve refined it just for you!
Just chill… Everyone needs to calm down. If you haven’t accomplished much this year because you’ve had so much on your plate, then maybe what you need to do is relax! One thing we’ve learned is that if you take care of your mind, the rest of your body will be taken care of. Get some rest, meditate, and then recharge!
