The end of another year is upon us and while many of us are excited about the prospects of the upcoming year, it is important to prepare oneself for it. It’s hard to make room for new things when we carry the clutter from the past with us. I felt it was really important this year especially to do a deep cleanse of my life before the clock strikes midnight. In anticipation of the new year, here’s what I’ve been doing:
- Purge, Purge, Purge: From my closet to my contact list, I got rid of all things which no longer serve a purpose in my life. Clothes with holes or stains have been put to pasture. People who act as emotional terrorists have been put on block.
- Clean Slate: I scheduled a professional cleaning of my apartment and have freshly washed linens ready to put on my bed. Laundry is being done. Dishwasher is loaded.
- Tied Down: I went through my inbox and mailbox and made sure to tie up any loose ends and close up any unanswered correspondence. I also made sure there were no outstanding bills or invoices unsent.
- Prep Yourself: Scheduling a facial to slough off dead skin and a pedicure to dance into the New Year were the prefect ways to relax through the last few moments of the year.
