Try these 5 things to help yourself have a great year this year!
Nothing bad ever comes from praying. Jesus loves to hear from His children so let's all start off 2017 in a reflective, prayerful way. There is power in prayer to God!
2. Stay in touch with family
Haven't called your parents lately? Well, now is the perfect time to give them a call and tell them about your week. They want to hear how you're doing! (You're welcome, moms and dads.)
3. Read a new book every month
Google a list of books and stick to a goal of reading something new once a month. This doesn't have to be reading- just something to take you away from your schedule that helps you relax for a bit.
4. Travel to a new place
This can be going somewhere in your town that you've been wanting to see or traveling to a bigger city to go to the zoo or find hiking trails. (I would suggest getting outside with this one- you need a day outside!)
5. Get a new playlist
I'm as guilty as the next person of listening to the same album over and over again. But why don't you try listening to a random playlist on Spotify or Pandora and see what good songs you can find!
These things aren't guaranteed to bring you happiness but they can help you try new things and have a great year. Bring it on 2017!
