Stories I loved this week.
It’s 2016! How are you feeling about the new year so far? I’m going into it feeling refreshed, healthy and optimistic. I start a new contract on Tuesday, so it’s going to be interesting going back into the world of work after two months off. Weirdly, I drink more coffee when I’m not working, than when I am. Probably something to do with my work day routines. I love being in a routine, so I’m looking forward to that.
A few little things to do to make the new year better. (The Guardian)
Would you ‘Kon-Mari’ your kitchen? We’ve been doing a bit of a kitchen reorganisation this week and because the clutter was so frustrating, we went the whole nine yards and ‘Kon-Mari’d the whole thing. (Verily)
A sensible guide to exercise, when you hate exercising. (Thrillist)
It turns out that Tuesday at 6:30PM is the busiest time in at the gym in January, so if fitness is one of your New Year’s intentions, then mornings are probably a better time to go! (Brit + Co)
Some really nice lifestyle tweaks for better nutrition. (Self)
A really nice Q&A with Gretchen Rubin on habits. There really is no one-sized fits all solution for this. (goop)
2015 was the year that I became strong enough to graduate from knee push-ups to full push-ups and 2016 is going to be the year I can do a pull-up. Even one would be brilliant. (Greatist)
