What The OC Taught Us & Other New Year's Notions

I love celebrating the New Year! Not just for the parties, champagne and glitter, but also for what New Year represents. It's a chance to start fresh, put your best foot forward, and make commitments to yourself & then keep them all year long!

This New Year I'm focusing on myself. Numerology tells us that the year 2017 will represent renewal, and I'm keeping that in the forefront of my mind while making some of my resolutions - focusing on renewing my body, mind and spirit. In my opinion, there is no better time for it!

Here are a few of my 2017 resolutions:

• This year I want to expand upon wellness. Including things such as clean eating, chemical free beauty, all natural cleaning supplies.

• This year I will spend less time in front of screens, more time reading books and writing in journals.

• This year I will focus on more good than bad - positive thoughts, happy feelings and consistent gratitude.

I believe in taking the opportunity of the New Year ahead to do a little soul searching, find something you would like to renew, and gear up for a great year ahead! No matter how you celebrate it's arrival, remember what the OC once taught us, "The way you spend New Year's Eve is the way you'll spend the rest of the year." Keep that in mind and enjoy a Healthy & Happy New Year!
