It may be approaching the end of January, but I don't think it is too late to make changes to your lifestyle to make sure 2016 is the year you feel happier, healthier and more relaxed. I have attempted to make a few lifestyle changes myself which have made me so much happier, and I thought I would share them with you!
Remove negative people.
Negative people have a massive impact on me, if I am around a negative person I become negative too. Luckily, I have a positive and happy group of friends who always cheer each other up (I love you all, if you are reading this!) but I know from experience that sometimes you can get caught up in a friendship group that, although might not mean to, puts you down. It can be hard to, especially depending on your relationship with that person, but removing or distancing yourself from the negative people in your life really makes a difference on your mental wellbeing.
Try something new.
It's so easy to get caught up in the same routine from day to day, so this year I am trying to try doing things I wouldn't normally. I would like to commit myself to some clubs and strive to achieve rewards that I wouldn't have previously. I am volunteering for my Duke of Edinburgh award, and I am umpiring some of the younger years at netball with some of my friends. Small changes I know, but I really enjoy doing them!
Become more organised.
I wrote about how I organise my diary here, but I am making an effort to become more organised with my school work and revision etc. School is important to me, I would like to become a magazine editor in the future but I really would like to do well in all of my exams come next year so I am just revising each night so I don't have so much pressure in Year 11. Some may think this is silly, but I would like to be prepared, haha!
What changes are you making come this year?
