Take time to regenerate/refocus – You should include this step in anything you do, because it is so important. I am much more efficient if I am refreshed. So that means try to sleep 7-8 hours a night, so that your head is clear when you work and you will end up getting more done in less time.
Meditate – whether it is for 5 minutes or 60 minutes/day – this will also help you clear your head so you can be more focused to get your goals completed.
Clear clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing energy into your life.
What other people think of you is none of your business. Think about it…. Stop worrying about what other people think about you and what you do. You will get extremely stressed if you are worrying about whether other people approve of your actions. Do what you feel is right for you and enjoy it (so long as you don't hurt anyone else in the process).
Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
Pursue Your Goals - The absence of goals in our lives, or more specifically avoiding to pursue our goals, makes us feel like we are stuck and ineffective. The pursuit of goals in our personal lives, in our relationships, or with our careers, is the difference between having a mediocre life or a life full of passion and enthusiasm. Pursue your goals and watch your happiness soar. Make a Vision Board Or Treasure Map (A vision board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of your dreams and desires.)
Compensation – Everyone wants to be compensated monetarily what they are worth. If you need to take some risks and focus on generating multiple income streams then DO IT. If you do nothing over the next year where will you be a year from now?
Meaningful career and day to day life – I think many get a bit more introspective as they get older. They want to feel like they are not just going to a job to do the same monotonous things each day. Find something that will make a positive impact on society whether it is something you can do work related or if it does not fit in the realm of your work duties maybe volunteer. Helping others is very gratifying.
Savor Every Moment - To be in the moment is to live in the moment. Too often we are thinking ahead or looking ahead to the next event or circumstance in our lives, not appreciating the “here and now.” When we savor every moment, we are savoring the happiness in our lives.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
Make Time To Play - Responsibilities should be balanced with play. For many people, life is a burden simply because they have forgotten how to have fun. If you are having fun that means you are laughing and smiling. Trust me smiling and laughing is one of the best things you can do in life – especially sharing it with others!
Be Grateful - How many times do you say the words “thank you,” in a day? How many times do you hear these same words? If you are doing the first thing, saying the “thank you,” the latter will naturally happen. Learn to be grateful and you will be open to receive an abundance of joy and happiness. If you feel your life is so bad but you are able to see, touch, smell, taste and move everyday be grateful for that – many people do not have the use of all of their senses and they are grateful for what they have - no pity parties allowed!
Get moving – This is one of my favorite stress relievers - Do something each day to be active — walk, hike, play a sport, go for a run, do yoga. It doesn’t have to be grueling to reduce stress. Just move. Have fun doing it. The best thing is you can do this by yourself, with a buddy or with your kids. JUST START MOVING!

Whether you invest in Real Estate, You do consulting outside of your regular job – or better yet have a group of people consulting for you that work for you, invest in the stock market or do what I do with Direct selling, multiple income streams is making your money work for you when you are doing something else.
Here is the tidbit of what I do…One of the easiest ways for many people to stop working for others or to add to their bottom line in conjunction with what they are doing now is to begin their venture part-time in what is today known as direct selling. It requires very little cash outlay, usually about $100 to $500 dollars. Most average around $200.00.
Direct selling companies have all the support tools, management, legal, product, and customer service systems in place. All they need is someone willing to educate the public about their product or service. They allow you to create multiple streams of income with a balance between upfront cash for now and residual income for the long haul. You can contact me at Shelley Or VISIT MY SITE BY CLICKING HERE!

Health and Happiness in the New Year!
