New Year’s Resolutions / Goals

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Happy New Year everyone! Naturally, one of the first posts of 2017 needed to be my resolutions/goals. I’m very excited to share with you what I’m looking to get out of this New Year! If you read my How To Make Realistic New Year’s Resolutions blog, you know my opinions on these goals that people set. Keep reading to see what I’m looking forward to doing this year!

Work on my blog

I would love to start blogging more frequently throughout the week. I would eventually love to work up to every day of the week. Along with blogging more I want to put more time into my other social media outlets and really make it all a well-oiled machine. I know this will definitely be the hardest and most time consuming goal but it’s also the one that gets me the most excited!

Cook more meals at home

My husband and I did WAY too much eating out last year. It’s just so hard to come home after a long day and find the time to plan out meals and actually cook. However, this year, I would love to get better on meal planning to make it easier on the both of us.

Travel Somewhere New – even if it’s a weekend getaway

There is so much of the world that I haven’t seen and I want to get out there and experience new things. You don’t need to go halfway around the world to experience new things so I think this is a feasible goal for me this year and definitely excites me! I’ve definitely been eyeing Airbnb for a while and love the idea of traveling like this. I think we will definitely be using that site this year for cheap travel!

Comment down below what your resolutions/goals are for this year! Let’s all keep each other motivated!

Fool Proof Hangover Cure

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I thought New Year’s Day would be a great opportunity to re-post this handy little blog to help everyone out. New Year’s tends to get a little crazy so let me help you start off on the right foot in 2017. Try out some, or all, of these times to get started on your best year yet!

Water

Obviously. Your body needs water after all the alcohol you guzzled down the night before. You really should drink a large glass of water first thing every morning; but, be sure you especially don’t skip this step when you wake up hungover.

Medicate

Pop a couple ibuprofen or take an Advil to get the healing started.

Banana

I know it probably sounds disgusting at the time. Your body doesn’t NEED the unhealthy greasy breakfast that you know you’re craving, it NEEDS the potassium. Save the calories, eat a banana.

Tea

A warm cup of tea always eases my stomach when it is upset. When I’m hungover, I opt for my detoxifying tea. I use the Roasted Dandelion Root from Traditional Medicinals. It’s a great organic detox tea (little earthy for those not accustomed). You won’t see all the celebrities promoting it but it still works just the same. Drink a cup of tea to help ease your stomach and prepare for the next step…

Get Moving – Work Out

It’s going to sound awful and the exact opposite of what you want to do but I promise you will feel so much better once it’s all said and done. Sweat out all the left over toxins in your body. You could go on a long walk, run on the treadmill, or just do a little in home ab work. Really it’s all up to you, but I promise you’ll feel a million times better after.

After these steps, you’ll feel back to normal. The best part is that this process will take only a couple hours and they’ll save the rest of your day! Try this out next time you’re feeling a little under the weather and let me know how it goes!
