A leg stretch in the morning | It's nothing groundbreaking, but I feel like I need to get moving again now that the Quality Street tub has been put away for another year. This isn't just fitness motivated, but I find getting out and about for even a walk or a bicycle ride helps me have a clearer head, I sleep better and I feel refreshed as well.
Organising the next few months | I'm not sure about the New Year, but I can often feel overwhelmed with the pressure to make the most of the fresh start. I want to start with simply planning on my new few months in my diary, putting in important dates that I can't forget as well as lightly drafting some upcoming blog posts and Instagram photos.
Embrace the cosy evenings | In the Autumn and the run up to Christmas I absolutely love cosy evenings in with festive or scary films, but I get pretty impatient come January as I am usually just lusting after Spring then. I want to embrace Winter a little more this year in as many ways as I can as I think this will boost my mood and motivation overall. I think working all day, but then having a book or TV series with fairy lights and the fire on will help me feel like I have a little joy to look forward to at the end of the day.
Clean and rearrange my house | This is the first year that I can hand on heart say I didn't want to take my Christmas tree down, I feel like it's really spruced up my living room and even my bedroom had a little makeover. Due to this festive shaped hole in my life and nothing for another 9 months or so to decorate for, I want to pick up some new homeware pieces to decorate with and clean my house top to bottom to make it feel sparkling again.
Find a new podcast | One of my favourite ways to get motivated is putting on a new podcast on to listen whilst I work. I know this isn't for everybody as others may find it harder to concentrate, but I enjoy it as I feel like I'm having human interaction whilst I'm working.
