We love the idea of journaling your memories and stories. It may be hard, however, to write things down every single day. A micro journal is a great alternative. It’s a small sampling of what is going on in your life — maybe a few lines or bullet points each month. The best part is it’s small enough to go back through next year so you can see how much you’ve grown and improved.
Decorating your space for the holidays is such a fun way to bring the outdoors inside. Bring the season to life with things like scented candles, greenery, glittery decor. Incorporate these things to every room in your home. Switch out boring bed sheets or pillows for christmas themed ones. You can certainly find decorations at any price point to fit your budget. Higher quality items are sometimes worth the investment, especially if you can see yourself reusing them year after year! Making your own decorations can be such a fun tradition, as well.
