I saw this article in People Style Watch December 2011/Jan. 2012 issue in the living section and just wanted to share! 😉
Make 2012 your best yet with these easy expert tips for staying happy, healthy and stress-free!
♥ Organize your closets! A clean closet will male getting ready day easier. Start by taking everything out and arranging clothes into “keep,” “donate” or “maybe” piles. Then invite an honest friend over to help decide on the “maybe” items. Categorize the keeper by color, style, occasion or season whatever method you’re likely to stick to! Or you can just hire me to organize your closet. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
♥ Sneak exercise into your routine! Regular workouts are a great way to improve your mood. But that doesn’t have to mean hours at the gym. Walking an extra lap around the mall or taking the stairs at work can help.
♥ Wake up your space! Give your home a new look with these quick, budget-friendly ideas
♥ Rearrange furniture! Shuffle pieces around or move them from one room to another to give your space a new feel.
♥ Paint something! A coat of color is a great way to refresh an old table or chair. For a more dramatic effect, paint just one wall, it can create a focal point for a room.
♥ Eat something green! A raw vegetable salad will fill you up and help you feel more energized. Get in the habit of having a small one before lunch or dinner.
♥ Keep a journal! Recording fun memories can increase overall happiness. Keeping a “gratitude journal” next to your bed to jot down recent events that make you feel thankful.
♥ Laugh it up! The simple act of smiling can help generate positive feelings in the brain. So make fun plans with a couple of friends or if you’re staying in, switch on your fave funny TV show or movie.
♥ Just add color! A bright shade even in small doses can perk up your mood. Pick up some fresh flowers, add throw pillows or buy a new rug in a vibrant hue.
