Life has it’s ups and downs, naturally, but there’s something revitalising about the New Year. It’s a time to reflect on the year passed, a time to examine it, and see how we can make the next year better!

5. Get Into A Routine
There is a negative stigma around making your life a routine: but really what having a routine is, is stableness. When we get into a routine we sleep better, stay more focused, feel more secure. It can be a good thing. Make sure your routine includes some fun; organise fun activities with your friends, plan getaways, always instill happiness into your life!
4. Aim For At Least 6 Hours Sleep, 8 Hours if Possible
If there’s one thing everyone can agree on it’s that sleep is important, we feel pretty awful when we don’t get enough of it. It is recommended that we get at least 6 hours sleep, although 8 is ideal. It makes the rest of the day easier, especially the morning we most of us are falling asleep in our coffee.

If you are unfortunate enough to live in the Northern Hemisphere then you’re probably finding the cold outdoors fairly unappealing. I don’t blame you for wanting to snuggle up by the fireside, hot cocoa in hand. But your body will thank you for getting up, and getting out!
If you prefer to stay indoors, you can keep active with yoga as your form of exercise. The physical benefits of yoga are both external and internal, plus you don’t have to leave the house!
1. Include Foods In Your Diet That Will Boost Your Immune System
