After the holidays, your home probably looks a little Armageddon-like.

#Throw away old clothes and items
Revisit your wardrobes – both yours and the kids’. Say goodbye to boring or old clothes, shabby home tops, pants that are literally broken from too much wear. This is a very good way to clear the energy in your home, and, according to spiritual teachers, by doing this, you subconsciously put order in the rest of your life as well. Think about donating whatever you can to start the new year with a positive energy and a good gesture!

#Get away from the screen
Hours spent in front of mobile screens are literally hurting your real life. Make it a little challenge and try to stay as far away from screens as possible. Instead of watching others exercise, visiting exotic places and improving themselves – do it yourself. Don’t compare yourself to people who post content on social media. Often times, their lives have nothing to do with what they are presenting to their audience. Instead, buy a good book or watch a notoriously good series, it will help you relax and recharge for the tasks ahead!

#Make a change
If you want different things to happen to you, start with the change in you. But if that seems too complicated, take something easy at first – like changing the furniture, a new hairstyle, a different arrangement of the home, a new appliance. As simple as these things may seem, they will bring about a change in your thinking and perception and give tone to new beginnings. Then everything can start falling into place as you embrace changes in your lifestyle and mindset.

#All it takes is one word
Now for a very simple trick that will help you set a goal and stick to it. Come up with a short sentence, a phrase that will serve as a definition of what you want to happen to you this year. If even that seems too complicated, let it be just one word. Whatever happens, remind yourself of it over and over again when you veer off your outlined path. The more you say it, the more likely it is to happen and the easier it becomes to put things into perspective.
