As I wake up today I wonder who else is ready to jump into 2021? I know this isn’t my usual home decor share, but after the year we’ve had I thought sending out some positive vibes, and ideas for a better 2021 would be fun!
2020 was hard.
It tested us in so many ways! But something I’ve learned is that it pushes us, it pushed me out of comfort zone and made me try something I may have not done otherwise. With all the changes I faced this year, 2020 has helped me to finally start my Instagram page @tarynfalconerdesignstudio where I share all my interior design tips & tricks. It has helped me start my blog which is something that has been on my bucket list for a while! I may have not done this if circumstances were different.
Change isn’t always bad and sometimes it brings us amazing new opportunities.
I want to take a minute to thank everyone who has embraced me, and allowed me to share my passion with them. The ones that have been following along and cheering me on!
Here are 15 Awesome New Year’s resolutions for 2021;
1-Start a new project!
What is something that’s been on your list but haven’t had time to do yet? JUST GO FOR IT!
I have talked about starting a home decor/inspiration blog for years now, and I finally started one! I have used this time at home to finally start something I am passionate about, and when I look back now, I wish I would have started sooner!
After the year we have all had, make this year about you! You’ll be glad you did!
2-Declutter your home!
I don’t know about you, but clutter makes me crazy. There is something calming for me about removing all the clutter, isn’t it amazing how much power aesthetics can have over your emotions.
3-Spend more time with people who are good for your soul!
Often times we use the reason that we are “too busy” and that may be the truth. But I think after the year we have had, we should all put in the time for the people that matter most. Even if it’s a quick text or FaceTime just to let people know we’re thinking of them.
4-Start a self care routine!
This is something I think a lot of us don’t make enough time for (especially us moms). Even if it’s just a 5 minute skin care routine for yourself before bed. You deserve it!
5-Learn to say “no” (I need to take this advice myself) lol
Learning to say “yes” only to what you want will change your life. You’ll be far less stressed out and free up more time for yourself!
6-Find a new hobby!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to try? Maybe you think you don’t have the time? FIND IT! DO IT! YOU DESERVE IT! Have a look in your calendar and see where you could fit in even an hour a week, that’s a great starting point.
7-Spend more time learning!
Try and learn something new once a day! Knowledge is one of the most powerful tools you’ll ever have and something you can keep with you forever. Knowledge will help you build some amazing confidence in yourself!
8-Spend less time on your phone!
Did you know the average person spends two and a half hours on social media a day? That’s 3 whole days a month or 75 hours, WOW! Imagine all the things you’ll have time for if you try and cut this back.
9-Renovate or redecorate
Sometimes change is exactly what we need! I know when I change things it gives me a sense of accomplishment and an overall positive affect on my well being. Being in beautiful surroundings can just make you feel happy! It’s crazy how this can actually play on your emotions. Set a budget and choose beautiful colours that make your feel joy!
Exercise is amazing for more then just weight loss! Starting your day with some quick yoga or cardio is the easiest way to get all your juices flowing. Schedule some time (even just 3 mornings a week) and you’ll see what a difference it can make in your life, and how it will make you feel.
11-Be more thankful!
Especially after the year we just had, I think we all have a lot to truly be thankful for. Stop complaining about the things you can’t control and focus on the ones you can.
12-Learn to let go of what people think if you!
In the end people will judge you anyway!
Just do more of what makes you happy and stop focusing on what other people may think and feel. Remember that you don’t need anyone else’s validation for your life!
Learning how to get organized will be your very first step in taking control of your own life. Start using your smartphones calendar or buy yourself a pretty little day timer. Clean out that junk drawer you’ve been putting off for months! These things will all make a difference.
14-Find reasons to be happy!
Start thinking of reasons everyday on why you should be happy! Focus less on the negative and bring in all that positivity, then watch your life change! Start appreciating all that you have and all the wonderful people surrounding you. Appreciate the time, appreciate the memories. By finding reasons to be happy your entire mindset will change.
First is accepting “you are who you are”, and your awesome! We all bring different things to the table, that’s what makes us all special and unique! Imagine how boring the world would be if we were all the same!
Acceptance is the first step!
