Refreshing Your 2016 + Contest Winners

Hello everyone! I'm home from vacation, so that means I can get back on my posting schedule :D Today's post is how you can get with that cliché "new year, new me" by doing some little things.

1.  Creating resolutions

This is kind of a cliche thing but it helps. This gives you an idea of what you want in 2016 and also gives you motivation.

There's a lot of posts online helping with sticking to your resolutions that can definitely help you! Make sure to create resolutions that you can actually accomplish and that seem realistic.

2.  Change up your music playlist

I find myself listening to the same songs over and over again and it gets a bit boring. (it doesn't but i should probably expand my horizons) Changing up your playlist can really give you a new start.

If you use Spotify, I would try using the browse option, it's helped me expand my music choices a lot :) You can also search up bands relating to your favorites! Here's my current playlist:

3. Try eating different things

Make a list of things you like and try things similar to it. Look up things on Pinterest. Keep an eye out for interesting things at the grocery store. There are many things you can do to expand your taste.

Doing this is similar to changing your playlist. It helps you start the year fresh!

4.  Create a bucket list.

This will help you do more cool and interesting things! Like the resolutions, make things realistic. Don't make a thing like travel to Japan if you know it can't happen this year. Doing this really makes you happy because it will inspire to get off your butt and stop procrastinating.

You can get inspiration from Tumblr and Pinterest as well as other places! Also, this is a thing that you really have to work to do. It takes courage to try new things, especially if you're more into staying home. It should help you come out of your shell and approach the year with happiness :D

5. Do the things you've been holding back.

Telling that person how you really feel about them. Starting that blog. Picking up a new hobby. *insert shia lebouf meme here*

Just do it! You'll feel refreshed, happy, and free. Pick up the weight on your heart and then you can finally start the new year. Who knows, maybe you doing the thing will even help someone else out, or make someone else happy :)

I hope you enjoyed and that this helped somewhat :) Now the winners of the contest!

  1. Some of my favorite songs currently are Don't wait by Mapei and Here by Alessia Cara. The bucket list idea is a really good one that I've kind of adopted, I have a 30 before 30 list that I'm working on right now. And i totally agree with the last one. Also before I forget, happy new year.

  2. WOW! I did NOT expect to win third place. Thank you SO much, Noor! :D And congrats to Fiona and Vivian!! I bet you both did amazing entries to be able to get those prizes. :)
