2016 Action Plan

IMG_3307.jpg

Happy Lunar New Year! I wish you all a successful year with good health and many amazing opportunities!

Celebrating Lunar New Year has been a family tradition and it never feels like the beginning of a New Year until I have gone through all of the Chinese traditions with my family. I love spending time with my family, eating lots of traditional snacks and the obvious…getting red pockets! Haha.

 

There’s usually about a month and a half between January 1st to Lunar New Year and I like taking that time to reflect on lessons learned from the previous year to help me better set an action plan for the upcoming year! As I get older, I spend more and more time taking care of myself and making it a priority to keep my mind and body in check. My main focus this year is to bring more balance into my life. Here’s my action plan for 2016!

 

Drink Clean

1. Drink More Water
It never hurts to drink more water – my skin will love me for this!

2. Make more smoothies
Love using my Cuisinart SmartStick (currently 25% off at Canadian Tire!) to make smoothies. I always use the typical fruits and greens but this year I want to try ingredients that I haven’t used before like different nuts and oats! If you have a go-to favourite smoothie recipe, please let me know in the comments below!

3. Try a Juice Cleanse
I generally eat pretty healthy and clean, it’s just that the amount I eat is not so healthy haha…so I’d love to try a juice cleanse this year to give my body a detox!

MONDAY MANTRA

Monday Mantra - Jan 11, 2016.jpg

HAPPY 2016 friends! Thank you so much for being so supportive in 2015. I am so excited to bring you more fashion, style and design inspiration this year!

I promised myself back in mid December that I would take a (real) break over the holidays from my work and it’s been so refreshing to shut my brain off for a little bit and just put the focus back to my family, friends and loved ones. During the year, I usually get so wrapped up in my work. I LOVE what I do so much and I constantly want to find ways to improve and do more! The reality is that one of my major goals in 2016 is to really bring some balance into my life and take care of myself a little bit better. This started back in May last year when I decided to quit my full time job to build on different personal and professional skills, start my blog, freelance and to take a break. I am going to continue working on balancing my life this year but with an action plan! That post will be going up shortly so stay tuned!
