1. Journal your heart out
You might daydream of better finances, running a half marathon, meeting the love of your life or moving to New York but the difference between a dream and a reality can start with journaling. A study at Dominican University found that 43 per cent of people who wrote down their goals went on to achieve them. A notebook, a pen, and limitless imagination is all you need. Don’t hold back – write down all of the things you want in your life, and determine five for next year and five for the next five years to create a road map for where you are headed in life.
2. Start sweating now
There’s a reason why gyms get packed out in January – most people use the silly season as a break from working out or they put off getting in shape until the New Year. You don't have to buy into that mindset, working out regularly during party season will put you ahead of the game – you will sleep better, feel less stressed, your skin will glow and your body will be running more efficiently to allow for all the pavlova and mince pies.
3. Get the car of your dreams
If you’re in the market for a new set of wheels, Hyundai have some great offers which are available now, so you don’t have to wait. With all the standard features you get in a Hyundai at a great value price they’re offering a seven-year warranty offer on their range of top selling models. But the offer is only valid until December 31st 2019 so you really can’t wait too long.
4. Pay attention to your gut
If you want to feel happier and healthier right now the easiest way to do that is to give your gut some lovin’. Good gut health has been linked with everything from better skin to a better mood and immune system, some easy ways to boost your good gut bacteria are to eat more prebiotic fibre-rich foods: bananas, asparagus, onion and whole grains, eat less sugar and focus on getting more sleep.
5. Make an energy in/ energy out list
If there’s one thing we all want more of, it’s better energy to get you through busy work periods (so you can stay focused on your life goals) and keep on top of healthy habits. Grab your journal and write down a list of everything that deposits extra energy in your bank, for example: F45 class, screen-free time, seeing favourite friends and everything that’s draining your energy reserves: too much alcohol, toxic friendships, not getting enough sleep. Aim to do more of the first list and work on eliminating or improving the second.
