Christmas is over… Now what?

Barbados News

While the Holidays can be a busy time of year, January can be just as tiring! Here are 5 tips to help you organize the “after Christmas demands” as well as prepare for the New Year that is fast approaching.

Make a List

Making a list of everything you want to accomplish in the up and coming months can help you keep on track. Lists help you organize your thoughts, especially when  you’re feeling stressed out. Being able to cross things off your list can also leave you feeling satisfied and productive even if the completed task is minor.

Write Down Your New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time of year again where you have to make a list of your goals for the upcoming New Year. These goals can be about your health, your family, your work goals or new projects to complete around the house. Making a list of goals can keep you motivated and accountable to ensure you remain productive throughout the New Year. Studies say that you should keep these goals simple to ensure that you are able to achieve them and not feel discouraged. Dollarwise wishes you a healthy and happy 2019!


De-clutter and start new! Is there a drawer in your kitchen that you have been avoiding? Is there a room in your house that you walk by without fully looking at it? Well there’s no time like the present to organize. Often organizing a section of your house that you have been avoiding can help you feel refreshed and satisfied, especially if you have been avoiding the task. Keeping things organized in your house can help you feel organized in your life, which will lead to a very positive outcome and mindset.

Take Time to Give Thanks

The Holidays are busy for everyone so sometimes it’s hard to make sure you give thanks to everyone in your life. After the Holidays it’s important to stop and reflect on everything that happened and make sure you reach out to those who mean the most to you. A quick phone call or email to show your gratitude goes a long way. And, if you’re feeling extra creative, sending homemade thank you cards (or store bought) can mean the world to your family and friends; homemade cards are also a great craft to do with your kids!

Start a New Activity

Is there a new sport you want to try but have been avoiding it? Maybe you want to join a club or community organization? Well, there is no time like the New Year to start the new activity that you have been thinking about. Starting a new activity can be a great way to get out of the house, learn new things, and meet new people. Stepping out of your comfort zone and learning a new skill can lead to positive outcomes and stimulate your mental well being.

A new year means a new start, a perfect time to have a clean slate. How you choose to start your year is in your hands! It is a great time set goals and create steps to achieve them. Happy New Year from all of us here at Dollarwise, we look forward to seeing you around one of our stores.
