5 WAYS TO END THE YEAR RIGHT

Personal

Every single year, we find ourselves making new resolutions. But why wait until the NewYear before you start making positive changes? This year, challenge yourself to end the year on a strong and a good note. There’s still time, so stop procrastinating and start doing.
Let’s end this decade with a bang!

 

 

1. Donate to charity
Pick a charity and DONATE your stuff, your money and your time. It could be as simple as making a phone call or a trip. My friend, Ethel, is organising a clothes donation drive for a Vietnamese Orphanage! If you/your kids have any pre-loved clothes (between 0-14 years) that are in GOOD, CLEAN AND WEARABLE CONDITION, please consider donating them! You can drop them off on the 11th and 12th of Jan 2020 between 10AM-5PM at 1002 Jalan Bukit Merah #07-13 Singapore 159456. 

2. CELEBRATE! 
Look back on the last year and find 10 things you’re grateful for. Gratefulness is the key to contentment and happiness. Celebrate small and big wins. Let go of past failures, past disappointments, past heartbreaks, past rejections. Let go of the past and only focus on all the blessings and good that have come your way.  It’s time to set your old life on fire, and let the light guide you into your new life.

3. Send a heartfelt message or a note to the people who got you through the year. 
Think of all your lowest points this year and ask yourself who was standing by you throughout those moments. Show gratitude to them for you wouldn’t have made it through without them. They deserve the thanks we give. I made a video on YouTube sharing about my pre-natal and post-partam journey, giving credit to Yen from Madam Partam for all that she has done for me. 
4. Cancel the subscriptions and memberships that you never use.

Unsubscribe from mailers who’s mails are as good as junk. Decluttering also means getting rid of noise in your life. You’ll not only be pleased with the financial liberation but you can finally focus on the important things.

 

5. Ask yourself hard questions that you’ve been putting off. 
It is too easy to settle into a routine and let little things slide. Have you been putting off something that means a lot to you? Like spending time with someone dear, or focusing on your own personal health and well-being? It’s time to force yourself to get back on track with those things, no matter how difficult it may be.
