how to press refresh on your life.
Pressing refresh might just be the ultimate mood booster. That’s why we’ve put together a list of ways you can get started on a new chapter of your life.
remove all of the photos on your phone.
I recently saw a video of a girl removing all of her photos from her phone and uploading them to Google Drive; having a clear photo library on your phone seemed so satisfying to me. Doing this alongside deleting my unused apps and old emails meant that the phone that I spend so much of time on, could feel refreshed too.
move your furniture around.
I can’t express how much I love to move furniture around; every time I change the space I’m living in; I feel like I experience change too. I feel tidy and revitalised. Whilst you’re rearranging you can throw old items away that you no longer need, organise what you keep and donate or sell whatever you think you can give away. Altogether, your space can feel bigger and brighter as well as your mood.
tie loose ends with people.
Although tying loose ends can feel daunting, it is essential if you want to move on fully with your life. Identify the people who you have unresolved issues with, contact them and address the issue. This can give you peace of mind which is essential for beginning a new chapter in your life.
change your look.
In my opinion, this is the most fun way to show the world you’re starting afresh. Update your wardrobe, cut your hair, and treat yourself to some pampering. Changing your look doesn’t have to be expensive either, try wearing new colours, upcycling your clothes, or experimenting with making homemade skincare products.
Open all of your windows, let in the light, and put on a candle with a new scent. Increasing the amount of fresh air in your room can provide greater clarity to the brain, helping you to think, focus and concentrate better.
explore new music.
New music has the power to make you feel good, it builds new pathways in your brain and can give you an oomph of new energy. To help you get started, Spotify has a ‘radio’ section which chooses new music for you based on what you’ve already liked, and best of all, it’s free! If you’re stuck on where to start, upcoming music genres of 2021 include Synthwave, Nu disco and Ambient, so why not give them a go?
