Quick Tips

Trick Yourself Into Getting Active

It’s difficult to start an outdoor exercise plan in the new year, exercise psychologist Jack Raglin told Today; the weather and lack of daylight often provide good excuses to stay sedentary. “People have been overindulging, they feel guilty, they feel like they have to do it, and they’re starting at a time when the environment is kind of conspiring against them,” he says. Luckily, there are ways to trick yourself into getting active: Get an exercise partner, even if you exercise on Zoom sessions; make your first goal just to get to the gym; or put your exercise clothes on before bed for the early-morning workout. #StayActive

Getting Active as the Temperatures Drop

The dead of winter has arrived in many parts of the country, with frigid temperatures and ample amounts of snow. While it’s tempting just to curl up under the covers in an effort to stay warm, it’s more heart-healthy to keep up your exercise regimen throughout the year. Find an activity that’s fun to do outside and dress in layers, Heart & Stroke says. Take advantage of the daylight hours to keep seasonal affective disorder at bay. And remember to stay hydrated even when you aren’t actively sweating or thirsty — cold air is often dryer than you think. #StayActive

Put Decluttering on Your 2022 Plan

As you embark on a personal #decluttering initiative in the new year, be careful not to get so overwhelmed that you abandon hope. Instead, make a plan, Real Simple says. List the specific spaces in which you want to get more #organized, whether it’s a kitchen drawer, your computer desktop or the whole house. Then, break each area into actionable steps and grind away at them a little bit on a set schedule every week. “Think of it in a similar way you think of fitness routines and diets,” the site says. “These things are most successful when they are approached in a way that can be maintainable with your lifestyle.”

Organizing the Easy Way

There’s an EASY way to get #organized in the new year, says ClutterKeeper.com. First, Empty “everything out of the space you want to organize and wipe down the surfaces to remove dirt and debris.” Then, Assess everything by sorting your #stuff into #keep, #donate and #trash piles. Store anything you want to keep into labeled storage containers or the areas in which the thing will be used. And finally, Yearn to maintain the system long-term by putting the things you keep back in their proper places after use. “The key to staying organized is to actively yearn and desire for it to stay that way.”
