The New Year! It feels like a new beginning, fresh start, a chance to make things better. Well, thats what you hear, and maybe feel. But I do think its a great time to re-think your priorities, what changes could you make to make 2023 your year?
Here are some great ideas to help maximize your You for the New Year!
Waking up at 5am.

It's a huge life hack and gives you more time to achieve your goals.
2. Writing down your thoughts before bed.
Writing before bed will imrove your quality of sleep. Here's what you can write down:
* Your goals for tomorrw
* What you are grateful for

This will improve your mental health dramatically.
3. Spend 1 hour a day exercising (ok, you were expecting this one right??)
To have a good mental health, you have to also have good physical health.
