2017 is right around the corner, Ottawa, have you set your resolutions yet?


New Year’s resolutions are a great way to achieve personal growth, but choosing one can be a long and taxing project. If you’re struggling to come up with the perfect personal goal, here are 8 ideas you can implement in your apartment this year!

#1. Give something away

It doesn’t take much for an apartment to get cluttered, especially if you’re living with roommates. Make a deal with your roomies to each get rid of something you don’t need in 2017—you might be surprised at how much of a difference it makes!

#2. Start making your bed every morning

We know it’s tough on those 8am lecture mornings, but just remember how good it will feel to crawl into a made bed at the end of a long day.

#3. Organize your closet

Organizing your closet is satisfying, refreshing, and can even remind you of some key wardrobe staples you forgot you had.

And who knows, maybe you’ll even find that one item to give away!

#4. Switch out one piece of décor

Change is good. Switching up even one thing in your living area can uplift your mood.

So, out with the old and in with the new!

#5. Buy that thing you’ve been drooling over

While it’s great to minimalize the clutter, and get rid of things you don’t need, treating yourself is also important.

Whatever it is you’ve been saying you wanted, go get it in 2017. You deserve it.

#6. Learn one new recipe

Cooking is a great skill to have under your belt, especially if you’re living away from your parents.

Bonus: it can also save you worlds of money on fast food.

#7. Make time to work out

Finding time to work out can be tricky, especially while balancing school and work. But, 30-minutes a day of physical activity can enhance your mood, and keep your body healthy! We suggest making time for it in 2017 if you aren’t already.

#8. Get a plant

Plants are a simple and affordable way to freshen up a room—especially during dull, winter months.

Adding some life to your apartment will be just what you need to keep motivated.

Creating New Year’s goals is always tough—and sticking to them is usually even tougher. When you feel like quitting, just remember all the positive benefits that will come from sticking to it!
