Tips on How to Achieve More Balance in the New Year; New Year - New You

Tips for Achieving More Balance in the New Year

With the holidays almost behind us, many of us are already starting to think about how to start the New Year off on the right foot.  Since we can all use one less thing to stress about, we’re sharing a few tips that are sure to help make 2014 your best year yet – thanks to Leslie Hendry yoga and meditation expert and author of the kids app “Tejas & Lollipops: The Great Clean-Up.”

Leslie’s Top Tips For Creating a New Year, New You:

1) Start With a Clean Slate – Take an inventory of items in your home you no longer use or need and donate, recycle or pass on to a friend or family member.  Creating more space in your home will make room to physically and emotionally invite new energy into your life!

2) Get Organized – One easy way to get rid of time wasters like searching for keys, sunglasses, etc. is to create a ‘home’ for items you use regularly. By keeping these items in one consistent place, you alleviate stress and create a more efficient, calm living environment.

3) New Year, New Habits – Part of creating a new you is embracing new habits big and small – like replacing your morning cup of coffee with a fresh, invigorating glass of hot water with lemon. Lemon helps clean out your liver and gives you a boost of vitamin C  – all without the jitters and delayed energy dump that coffee can cause.

4) Less Fearing, More Daring – Want to worry less and live more courageously? Start planning! By proactively pursuing activities that scare or excite you, you will not only become less fearful, but will be more engaged in your daily life!

5) Schedule ‘Me’ Time – Most of us are pretty guilty of taking on more than we handle. One surefire way to create less stress and more harmony in the New Year is learning to say no to taking on too much, and yes to scheduling more downtime. Whether it’s a 20 min meditation sess in the am, or a walk after lunch, nurturing your inner world can do wonders for how we cope with the outside world!
