Use organization skills to get handle on new year

With the holidays behind us, many of us are thinking about how to start the New Year off on the right foot.

Here are a few tips from Leslie Hendry, author of the kids app “Tejas & Lollipops: The Great Clean-Up,” to help make 2014 your best year yet.

Start with a clean slate. Take an inventory of items in your home you no longer use or need and donate, recycle or pass on to a friend or family member. Creating more space in your home will make room to physically and emotionally invite new energy into your life.

Less fearing, more daring. Want to worry less and live more courageously? Start planning. By pursuing activities that scare or excite you, you will not only become less fearful, but will be more engaged in your daily life.

Schedule “me” time. Most of us are pretty guilty of taking on more than we can handle. One surefire way to create less stress and more harmony in the New Year is learning to say no to taking on too much, and yes to scheduling more downtime. Whether it’s a 20-minute meditation session in the morning or a walk after lunch, nurturing your inner world can do wonders for how you cope with the outside world.
