New Year Resolutions - Make 2017 Your Best Year Ever

New Year Resolutions - Make 2017 Your Best Year Ever

With 2017 fast approaching, it’s a great time to start thinking about giving up bad habits, improving your health, saving money and making life that little bit easier. At Furniture Hire UK, we can help you with at least half of that list with our huge range of affordable and high quality furniture hire items. If you are currently buying your furniture, it could be time to make the switch to furniture hire instead. But more about that later.

With just a few days to go until we’ll be ringing in 2017, we thought we’d look into some New Year resolutions that are not only easy to stick to, but will give you a real sense of accomplishment too.

Doing More Exercise - The 10 Minute Rule

If you’ve resolved to do more exercise in 2017, don’t run before you can walk (pun intended). The reason why many people give up their good intentions is because they do too much too soon. Just 10 minutes of extra exercise a day could make such a difference. Ten minutes of walking, taking the stairs or high intensity workouts will burn calories and give you more energy.

Try To Get More Sleep

Just 30 minutes of extra sleep could help you to feel more refreshed when you wake up in the morning. Set your bedtime to 30 minutes earlier than you would usually turn in, and relax beforehand. Take a bath or read a book an hour before your new bedtime so that you go to bed in the right frame of mind.

Cutting The Calories

Again, just like with exercise, many people fail at their new healthy eating plans because they bite off more than they can chew. If you really want to make a difference gradually and without affecting your diet too much, look out for the liquid calories. Sugar in tea and coffee, alcohol and even pure fruit juices can be packed with calories. By sticking to water and low calorie drinks you’ll be amazed at how many calories you can save.

Reduce Stress

We all lead stressful lives, but there are ways to reduce the stress you are under or at the very least handle it effectively. Relaxing at the end of a busy day is important, but it is also important to listen to your body and mind and take breaks during the day. Something as simple as finding a quiet office and taking ten minutes to meditate, read a book or simply sit and look out of the window will help you to get your mind together and reduce your stress levels.

Saving Money Or Earning More

Looking to be more prosperous in 2017? There are many ways you can save money or earn more. Saving money starts with an in-depth look at your current outgoings so you can eliminate the non-essentials and put that money aside instead. The job market is usually booming in January as it’s a natural time for people to uproot and find a new role. If you are looking to earn more money, a move to another employer could be the answer. The new year is also a great time to think about gaining a qualification and you’ll find some great offers on home study and distance learning packages.

Making More Time For Yourself

If you say “yes” to everything and find yourself pulled in all directions constantly, it could be time to resolve to say “no” more often. Don’t feel that you have to be all things to all people or that you have to attend every social event. By taking more time out for yourself and doing more of the things you want to do, you’ll be naturally happier and better company too!

Change The Way You Procure Furniture Forever

One of the easiest ways you can make an improvement for 2017 is to start hiring your furniture from Furniture Hire UK. Not only do we help you to save money, but there are also tax breaks involved with furniture hire. Our fantastic range has everything you need to furnish your office or your events and we would be delighted to help you to make the switch.
