Are you a hoarder?

If you haven’t worn it yet, you’re not going to wear it now, so it’s time to clean that closet. Bring out the bin bags and get sorting! It’s surprising how cathartic this rainy day exercise can be and how accomplished you will feel after.

Dig out old magazines, and birthday cards, and get cutting and sticking. Have you ever tried making a vision board about your goals and dreams? Try it, go wild, think about the trips you want to take, the new hobbies you want to try or what you want to achieve this year. There are no rules; this is for you, to create your own visual bucket list. Put this board somewhere where you can see it every day, to remind yourself that your ambitions are achievable.
