My 5 Step Guide to a Successful Year!

Happy New Year! After a hectic + stressful 2012 + taking some much-needed time away to play in the surf, sand + sun, I welcome 2013 with open arms as a chance at a new perspective + a fresh start. In getting started in making changes + following through I’ve shared my guide to success in the new year.

Set Your Goals

They say that 80% of people who write down their goals, actually achieve them – Write them down! I like to review + adjust mine every 4-6 months to ensure that I am on target + seeing results. Getting your goals down on paper will help you to figure out what you really want to take from the coming year + specify how you will get there. Be actionable.

Make Health + Fitness a Priority

It’s true our body is our temple, as cliché as that may sound. And while we tend to find any excuse we can to avoid hitting the gym, the truth is that getting in at least 1 hr a day of physical activity whether at the gym or at home is crucial to our success in other aspects of our lives. Our health should be our #1 priority to living a happy long life.

De-Clutter

Taking the time to de-clutter will not only help to create a clean, organized space making you feel better, but I’m a firm believer that it leads to time used more efficiently and in turn increasing productivity.

Replenish

2013 should be your year to drop what’s weighing you down + replenish yourself with the things that will help you achieve your goals. Too often, we are lead to believe that we can fuel our bodies with just anything like the latest quick ‘snacks’ on the go. I recently saw a great photo on instagram that read: “Fruit is fast food” – yes, it may take a little more time + preparation to get all the good stuff but in the long-term, why not be the best we can be? Make the time + do what’s best for your body + your life.

Do Something Different

We can’t expect different results by doing the same things. Why not make this year the year to take a chance at something you’ve always wanted? You won’t know unless you try – what have you got to lose?

No matter what you’re trying to achieve this year, big or small make it the best it can be!
