New Year Refresh

Happy almost New Year! I am so ready for 2021. I’m sure we all can agree that 2020 hasn’t been the best year. Going into 2021, I really want to prioritize things that are going to make me feel better overall. I’m making it a goal to refresh a lot of things in my life and I wanted to share a list of some things I’m going to be doing as we go into the new year.

  • Get rid of everything. Literally walk through your home with a trash bag. Be ruthless.
  • Clean out your fridge. Check expiration dates on sauces and condiments and stuff you don’t use as often.
  • Clean up your bedside table. Put two things that make you happy on it.
  • Go through your phone. Delete old contacts, messages, apps, and pictures. Change your lock screen.
  • Restock anything needed in the bathroom.
  • Check your pantry for expiration dates and restock anything that needs restocked.
  • Set a recurring alarm for each weekday. Try and wake up a half hour earlier than usual.
  • Put gas in your car. Clean it out and vacuum.
  • Put your number on the Do Not Call list. 1-888-382-1222
  • Dump out your bags. Throw away any garbage and organize them.
  • Clean out your closet and donate any clothes you no longer wear.
  • Clean out your medicine cabinet. Check expiration dates and restock as needed.
  • Write out threes simple dinners you can make with ingredients you always have on hand. Hang the list on the fridge for when you’re in a rut.
  • Detox your social medias. Unfollow people.
  • Clean off your desk. Get rid of the clutter and wipe everything down. Set up a good work space.
  • Look at what comes in the mail. Go to to take your name off of mailing lists.
  • Write your morning and evening checklists and hang them somewhere you will see them.
  • Write down one goal for the year. Just one. Tape it to your mirror.
  • Organize your inbox. Unsubscribe from lists you don’t want to be on.
  • Create a list to prepare yourself for a new week. Hang it up.

I am definitely going to be doing each one of these as we close out 2020 and enter into 2021. Let me know if you do any of these!
