Powerful Tips to Stay Energised and Organised as You Navigate the New Year

Let’s ditch the tired “women-specific” approach and embrace a more inclusive, empowering perspective! Instead of focusing on gender, let’s celebrate the shared experience of wanting to feel amazing in the new year. In this blog, our Co-founder, Faustina Anyanwu shares fantastic insights to starting the year energised and organised, regardless of who you are.

“Remember, the key to a fantastic new year is not to follow rigid rules or stick to a specific script. It’s about discovering what works for you, prioritising your well-being, and embracing the journey with a positive and empowered spirit.

Reconnect with your inner spark:

  • Spark joy, not chores: Kickstart with activities that fuel your soul, not drain it. Read a captivating book, blast empowering music, or spend time in nature. Find that spark that ignites your inner fire!
  • Embrace small wins: Celebrate even the tiniest achievements. Did you finally conquer that inbox mountain? High five! Did you whip up a delicious healthy meal? Treat yourself! Recognising progress, however small, fuels motivation.

Declutter your space, declutter your mind:

  • Tame the physical chaos: Give your living space a mini makeover. Donate unused items, organise cluttered areas, and create a haven of calm and productivity. A decluttered space translates to a decluttered mind.
  • Silence the inner critic: Replace negative self-talk with positive affirmations. Instead of “I can’t,” say “I’m learning” or “I’m ready to try.” Be your biggest cheerleader, not your worst critic.

Prioritise healthy habits for a vibrant you:

  • Nourish your body and soul: Fuel your energy with nutritious foods, and don’t forget the power of hydration! Move your body in ways you enjoy, whether it’s a brisk walk, a dance session, or simply stretching in the sunshine.
  • Make sleep your sanctuary: Prioritise quality sleep. Create a relaxing bedtime routine, ditch the screens before bed, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day.

Design a system for success:

  • Plan and conquer: Set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound), and break them down into manageable tasks. Use planners, calendars, or apps to stay organised and on track.
  • Embrace routines, but with flexibility: Create routines for daily tasks like exercise, meal prep, or work, but leave room for spontaneity and unexpected adventures. Life is a beautiful balance between structure and flexibility.

Connect and celebrate:

  • Surround yourself with positive people: Strengthen connections with supportive friends and family. Build a community that inspires and uplifts you, celebrating each other’s successes and offering encouragement during challenges.
  • Practice gratitude: Take time each day to appreciate the good things in your life, big and small. Gratitude shifts your perspective, boosts positivity, and fuels motivation to keep moving forward.
  • Have fun and embrace playfulness: Don’t take yourself too seriously! Schedule time for activities you enjoy, indulge in laughter, and embrace spontaneity. Playfulness keeps life vibrant and helps you stay energised.
  • Seek mentorship and guidance: Find inspiring role models or mentors who can offer valuable advice and support you in navigating life’s challenges. Learning from others can accelerate your growth and success.
  • Be your cheerleader: Don’t underestimate the power of self-compassion and positive affirmations. Celebrate your strengths, acknowledge your progress, and be your own biggest advocate.

Most importantly, remember this is for you, personalise your approach! Experiment with different strategies, find what works best for you, and adjust your plan as you go. This is your unique journey, so have fun making it fantastic!

Let’s make this year one of vibrant energy, clear organisation, and personal growth, together!
