Late last week, I watched a video from one of my favorite Youtubers, Miss Trenchcoat. She is a productivity and organizational expert and she really helped me get into the organizational planner realm.
The video I watched last week was, 10 Productive Things To Do Before 2018. You can watch it here! It really got me thinking to some things I would like to do prior to the New Year.
Here are my top 5 tasks I plan on tackling or implementing before 2018!
1. Organize my clothes and sell what I’m not wearing on Poshmark
I have so much clothes and I really only wear about 30% of my wardrobe. I got rid of a lot of my clothes prior to my move, I still want to get rid of a lot of the trendier pieces I bought on a whim or because they were on sale. I have had great luck selling a few things on Poshmark and will continue to use it to sell my unwanted goods.
2. Begin and get into the habit of gratitude of journaling
I have done so much reading about manifestation lately and a lot of begins with being grateful for what one has at the moment. Gratitude journaling is writing down things you are grateful for and reflecting on them. I think it’s a great practice to start to lead a more positive life by showing we are thankful for what we already have.
3. Incorporate daily smoothies into my diet
There are days where I know that I don’t even come close to meeting my fruit and vegetable intake goals. A smoothie is a great way to do so! I’m thinking of trying strawberries, mango, spinach and water to keep it lower calorie.
4. Meal plan
Over the summer I bought a fitness planner and I never used it! Over Thanksgiving break I purchased a wellness plan from one of my favorite Instagram fitness girls and it definitely inspired me to break out my fitness planner. For the next week I planned out 3 days worth of breakfasts, lunches and dinners and mid-week will plan out the rest of the week. It’s super motivating to see it written down and planned out.
5. Start my must read book list and finish 2 books a month
Lately I have been reading a lot of network marketing books and found myself craving just a good story. Prior to reading those network marketing books I hadn’t finished a book in months. Reading is something I genuinely enjoy and I need to carve out time for it. I want to make a must read list and alternate between non-fiction and fiction books.
Those are a few of the important habits that I am going to begin implementing now so I won’t have to worry about them being fad resolutions come 2018.
