This time of year is a great time to be planning for a fresh start but honestly, I think any time you feel motivated is good. Today I’m excited to share with you New Year Essentials to have your best year yet!
Having a great life begins with thoughtful preparation and purposeful decisions about your everyday life choices. While I’m not a huge believer in resolutions, I do believe in taking time to reflect, be intentional, and set goals.
Let’s dive into some of my favorites that I have gotten this year and that I believe will help you live with joy, expectancy, and passion this year.
My Top 10 New Year Essentials to have your best year yet!
1 The Happy Planner
I am trying a new planner this year: The Happy Planner by Create 365. I try a new one all the time because I tend to have some trouble finding planners that I really like. Something more than a mere calendar is on my wishlist, and I have to say I really like the colors and fun additions (like stickers!) that come with this planner. It makes it feel like a creative journal too.
2 Katie Daisy Journal
A good planner is important but I also like a journal for writing down dreams, ideas, and plans for all my big ideas in the new year. This Katie Daisy Journal is delightful because it is both inspiring with her gorgeously whimsical artwork and inspiring Thoreau quote, plus it’s a slim size which is handy for tucking in your bag for those times when you want to take it with you.
3 Pink Pens
A pen is a critical tool when using a planner or journal and I was pretty excited to find these pretty pink pens with pink ink! Everything is more fun in pink, isn’t it?!
I’m a huge fan of The Pioneer Woman and was excited when I spotted this Floral Stainless Steel Tumbler at Walmart recently. Staying hydrated is critical to good health and of course, I want to keep things as stylish as possible. I have this cup and have been thrilled with it!
5 Namaste Yoga DVD
Namaste Yoga is more than just an exercise video- it’s an experience that will calm your mind, strengthen your body and inspire your soul. Master yoga teacher Kate Potter guides you through 13 classes, all filmed amid the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I have been doing this version of yoga for almost a decade and I highly recommend it!
6 New Yoga Clothes
Who doesn’t love a new outfit? And a new yoga outfit definitely inspires me to get moving! The flowy flair style of this racerback tank is pretty and comfortable. The Power Flex Yoga Pant Leggings are flattering with their dark top and lighter bottom. Plus, they’re soft and cozy for wearing when not doing yoga too!
7 Essentials Oils & Diffuser
I’m sure you have heard all the benefits of essential oils. They are ideal for aromatherapy, custom massage and body oils, diffusers, vaporizers, oil burners, inhalation, perfume, blends, spa, home care and cleaning products. Phew! So many possibilities. This popular set of 8 essential oils by Radha is a great starter set including Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint, Frankincense, and Rosemary.
This Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser is a best-selling diffuser with its wood grain look and adjustable mist mode. Plus it has a waterless auto shut-off humidifier and 7 Color Changing LED Lights!
8 My Time with God Devotional
Over the course of three years, Joyce Meyer recorded in her journal the personal devotions and inspirations that guided her busy life. She then compiled those writings into MY TIME WITH GOD, the 365-day devotional and shares powerful insight into her spiritual reflections and journey. Each day is filled with meditations, an uplifting declaration, and relevant scripture to encourage greater intimacy with God.
9 How to be a Wildflower field guide
How to Be a Wildflower encourages self-discovery through encounters with nature all guided by beloved artist Katie Daisy. Katie brings her beautiful paintings and lettering to this collection of things to do and make, quotes, meditations, natural history, and more.
A recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie, a prompt to hike by the light of the moon, a place to press flowers: every page inside the charming textured two-piece case invites readers to wander, gather, savor, and ponder the natural world around them.
For every wild and free spirit—and those who aspire to be—this is a field guide to living life to the fullest.
Stay tuned for the soon-to-be-released The Wildflower’s Workbook in March 2018.
