When the clock strikes midnight, it seems everyone is after a fresh start to begin the year with. Every January we tell ourselves this will be the year; the year we finally get fit enough to run the London Marathon, clear out the clutter from the spare bedroom or cut out the carbs and booze for January!
We’re now more than a week past New Year and how many of us are still on track? Whatever the New Year resolutions may be, it’s clear some of us are lousy at sticking to them. But why is it so difficult to achieve these goals?
The reality is that any New Year resolutions need to be specific and measurable as if they are not they merely become good intentions. So to achieve your objectives for 2013, set aside a little time to plan how you are to achieve your objectives and have certain regular dates to check on progress.
Keep it simple; don’t make a list with thousands of great ideas. For example, if you want to turn the spare bedroom into an office, think what you need regularly, what you don’t and start clearing out the clutter (we would be delighted to look after it at one of our affordable self storage sites in Camden, Wandsworth or Southwark). Take one step at a time and don’t over complicate things by purchasing all your new swanky office gear first, it will only cause more mess.
Also, don’t make excuses but instead make a commitment to friends or family as they can lend support to help you keep motivated. If you’re moving house and need help packing, invite your pals round, order some pizza and take the stress out of moving.
Here at ABC Selfstore we can’t make you keep your resolutions but if you are looking for a clutter free home or for safe and affordable storage space to keep your precious belongings in, then give us a call.
If you need that little bit of extra motivation to help you achieve your goal of living in a tidy and organised house for 2013, just imagine the additional fun and functionality you could have with the new space you have created in your home!
ABC Selfstore is proud to offer safe, secure and affordable storage space in Camden, Wandsworth and Southwark but this year our resolution will once again be to continue to take great care of the things you care about. I know it’s a resolution we will successfully keep!
