Take some time to plan which health related activities you hope to engage in for the upcoming year.

Writing them down can serve as a reminder and help to keep you more committed to your health goals. It will also help you to manage your time more effectively.

Holidays and getaways

Plan the family holidays or short breaks that you would like to go on. It can give you something to look forward to. An added benefit is that you may pay a cheaper price if you make a booking in advance. You can save money and this can reduce stress.

In addition, make a note of family functions or commitments that you are to attend. Catching up with family members that you haven’t seen for a long time can be a wonderful and de-stressing experience too.
