Here are five minimalist New Year Resolution ideas for those of us whose resolutions don’t include diets, meditations, gym memberships, giving up certain foods, or yoga!
1. Resolve to start a Capsule Wardrobe.
Both The Project 333 and Unfancy have great tips on how to start. As someone who started a Capsule Wardrobe 4 years ago and never looked back, I can guarantee you won’t regret it!
2. Resolve to edit your photographs.
Don’t keep photos that make you sad, make you feel bad, or make you angry. Let them go. Keep only the pics that represent the best times of who you are and what you want life to be.
3. Resolve to get rid of your fat (or thin!) clothes.
Donate – or ditch! – anything that doesn’t fit who you are, here and now. Then, if your body should change, you’ll deserve new clothing, won’t you!
4. Resolve to mend what is broken.
All those items you have that are broken and need fixing, from windows to buttons missing from coats. Make a plan to fix them – and follow through!
Life is too short for broken things.
5. Resolve to edit your relationships.
Make sure the people around you make you happier, support you, and love you.
Get rid of the “psychic vampires” – those people who make life miserable, and seem to thrive on discord and discontent!
Remember: you are a reflection of the five closest people to you. Make sure they’re people you would choose to reflect.
