Each new year marks the turning of a page; the beginning of a novel and exciting chapter in your life. There’s something eminently refreshing about that feeling of starting over, which is why January is the ideal time for focusing on the things you wish to achieve in the months ahead.
We’re not just talking about your bog-standard New Year’s resolutions. We’re referring to the little things you’ve always wanted to try and never got around to doing. In between your great ambitions – your emphasis on professional success and clawing your way onto the property ladder – we think it’s important to achieve some smaller and more easily manageable goals too.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to spice up your 2019, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Organize a day at the races
We’re going to be honest: this next statement may sound slightly shallow. That said, we’ll just come out with it – life is better when you’re dressed to the nines and sipping champagne. Although we’re not saying every day should be spent this way, it’s nice to indulge from time to time, and a trip to the races could give you something really exciting to look forward to. It’s best enjoyed with friends in tow, so try getting a few of your favourite people on board with the idea.
If you’re really strapped for cash but still want to do something special, host a miniature meet at home. Oddschecker features lots of offers and promotions, which let you place a bet for free via Ladbrokes. All that’s left for you to do is provide a few glasses of bubbly, get everyone to dress up, and enjoy the racing action from the comfort of your condo.
Arrange a pampering day
Male or female, we also recommend you schedule in some you time. It’s so important to take care of your mind and body both, and one of the best ways to do this is with a trip to your local spa, or a sports massage if you’re in search of something a little less feminine. Take a few hours out to relax and pamper yourself, with your phone switched off and the outside world pushed aside for a while. There really is no better way to decompress and de-stress.
Take up walking as a hobby
For lots of us, improving our fitness is at the top of our to-do list, which is why we recommend taking up walking as a hobby too. Beneficial for both your mental and physical health and wellbeing, exploring the great outdoors will boost your stamina, clear your head, and give you the chance to see some beautiful scenery whilst you’re at it. Find some especially scenic spots, see if you can get your friends and their pooches to accompany you, and end the day in a rustic pub with a pint in hand.
Tell us, what will you add to your to-do list in 2019?
