Way To Kick Start The New Year

Published: 13/01/2021

New Year’s Resolutions. We all make them but sticking to them is another thing. As we head into the new year, it’s safe to say 2020 was a year like no other, with the still ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.

No matter whether big or small, this year, more than ever before, may be the best time to try set some resolutions that you know will motivate you to achieve going forward.

Don’t worry if you’re struggling to come up with some ideas, we’ve got you covered with the following:

Give your home office a makeover

2020 saw a lot of workers start working remotely from home, turning dining rooms, bedrooms and spare rooms into new office space. We previously provided some tips for when you’re working from home, which included creating good office space to ensure positive productivity, planning your working week out and more.

Now that you’ve had time to setup your home office and adapt to the new working lifestyle, why not take some time during the year to give your new office a makeover. This can range from something as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint to the room, to hanging new paintings on the wall or purchasing and rearranging new furniture around.

You’ll be surprised what a makeover to the office can do for your working life, productivity and outlook for the day ahead.

Take care of your wellbeing

There are a range of things you can do to ensure you’re taking care of your mental health and wellbeing, especially during these uncertain times. Whether it’s keeping fit and active by going for a walk in and around your local area, trying out new exercise techniques, keeping a healthy diet and sleeping well, to checking in on family and friends on the phone or via regular zoom quizzes, it can work wonders for you.

Clear the clutter

What better way to welcome in the new year than a big clear out around the house! It might be something that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but haven’t had the chance to get around to doing. Well make 2021 the year you start afresh with your home, declutter the bedrooms and make extra space. Who knows, items and clothing you may no longer feel you need, you could look to sell on and make some extra money in the process.

Get yourself on the property ladder or remortgage your home

Are you a first-time buyer who has saved up considerably over the last few years? Well 2021 might be the year you finally take the leap and get yourself on the property ladder. Maybe you’re considering showing your home some love by getting a remortgage. Maybe after spending more time at home over the past year, you’re looking to sell up for a new property with more space or sought-after garden features. Whatever it may be, GWlegal are available and ready to help cater to your legal needs today!

Plan for months ahead and do something different

Put together a plan for what you enjoy doing the most and new experiences you want to enjoy throughout 2021 and make it your goal to achieve them. This can be something as little as reading a new book from an author you like, checking out a new TV series boxset, to cooking new meals and visiting different places on your local walks. There are plenty of new and exciting things you can look forward to doing in the months ahead, so take the time to put a fun plan together!

Care for your community

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that community plays an important role in all our lives. Community can mean something completely different to everyone. For instance, maybe it’s to spend more time with family and friends through catchups and quizzes over Zoom and Skype. It could be checking in on a local neighbour, even if it’s just a quick phone call to see how their day or week has been. Maybe it’s to shop locally and help them keep their business afloat during these uncertain times. Whatever it may mean to you, the love and care we all had for local communities worldwide throughout the pandemic in 2020 should continue throughout 2021.
