How to Start 2019 the Right Way
Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, 
you present a new place for new ideas and progress - Charles Kettering

It may seem as though the year flies by so quickly and as soon as you blink, December has already arrived. This can bring about mixed emotions depending on how your year has gone and whether you’ve achieved what you set out to at the beginning of the year. The good news is that one of the perks of a new year is a fresh start and you can make up your mind to start it on a clean slate. If you’re thinking about how you can start 2019 the right way, see a few suggestions you can try below. 

Assess Your Year 

It is always good to take time out to reflect, especially when a year is coming to an end. This is imperative, so you can identify high points, low points and also ones that have been in the middle. The goal should be to then take this information and see how you can make 2019 better. Here are a few areas worth focusing on.

  • Finances: Your finances are an important part of your year that should be assessed. Make a note of where you are financially and how you got there whether good or bad. This may also be the perfect time to create a budget for the new year too.
  • Career- Your career is a significant part of your life as it’s where you can find fulfillment and earn a living. Think about how you’ve grown and whether you’re where you want to be. If not, set out goals which outline what steps you need to take to advance in your career. 
  • Personal development-Your personal development is so important, so think about how you’ve become a better person mentally, emotionally and physically in the past year. Identify areas you want to improve and set SMART goals to help you in the coming year.

Do a Spring Clean 

Once you’ve taken a stroll down memory lane, think about transforming your space. When you give your surrounding environment a facelift, it can give you the inspiration you need to start the new year off on a good note. You can start by deep cleansing core areas such as the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Also, if you happen to have carpet, look for professional local carpet cleaners that can make your carpet look brand new. In addition to this, don’t forget to give the windows a clean and get rid of items that may be taking up space. 

Have a Focus for the New Year 

Everyone  has their own theme for the new year depending on what they want to achieve. Some people may be tired of the cliché mantras that you’re likely to see all over social media on January 1st,   but goal  setting  never  gets  old.  Have  a  focus  for the year and put goals in place to help you achieve them. It may be anything from living outside of your comfort zone to having more fun or getting another degree. To help you stick to them, keep your future in mind and never forget where you’re going.

2019 can be as good of a year as you want it to be if you have the right mindset. It doesn’t mean that everything will go according to plan, but you can have the many things that a good year consists of like laughter, love, and fulfillment.
