How to Start the New Year Fresh
We want 2018 to be your best year yet: a year of health, wealth, good vibes and great Bedding. But it’s hard to slay like Beyoncé when your life looks like an episode of “Hoarders.” So here are some easy ways to clear your space – both physical and mental – for an amazing 2018.
CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET
You are never going to wear that poncho. So pour yourself a drink, turn on your favorite TV show, and clean out your closet. You are completely allowed to watch bad TV if you’re bagging up stuff for Goodwill, because your good deed cancels it out. That’s just math.
WASH / DRY CLEAN YOUR TEXTILES
How long has it been since you dry-cleaned that Throw? On second thought, don’t tell us. Now’s your moment! If you promise to clean all of your neglected textiles, we promise not to tell you what has accumulated there over the past 12 months…
CLEAR YOUR HEADSPACE
Be sure to give yourself some TLC, too. Take a trip to the spa and get last year scrubbed out of you; light a candle and write in your journal; or blast some death metal and scare last year’s demons away. Do whatever small ritual will help you release the things you’d would rather leave in 2017.
STREAMLINE YOUR TO-DO LIST
Did you know that having an overly thorough to-do list can actually cause stress instead of mitigating it? List-lovers often finish easy tasks first in order to “check something off” when other tasks are actually more important. If this sounds like you, either ditch your list or slash anything less than essential.
