This year make time for yourself, so you can be the person you really want to be in 2017. Not sure where to start? Here are 10 simple things you can do to take care of yourself, feel better, find joy, and start the New Year right.
Meet with a Nutritionist
If you want to lose or gain weight, boost athletic performance, or just learn how to eat smart and healthy, a nutritionist can help you achieve all of your goals. They’ll provide you with the information and tools (including shopping lists and recipes) you need to create new habits, all the while keeping you motivated, holding you accountable, and celebrating your accomplishments.

Have Your Meals Dropped Off by a Personal Chef
If you want to eat more mindfully, but don’t have the time to cook every meal, getting delicious chef-prepared meals delivered right to your door is a great option. Even if you do have the time to cook, getting meals delivered is a good way to mix things up and ensure you don’t get food fatigue from eating healthy and making good choices. Your personal chef will mix things up, while also respecting your dietary requirements and food allergies/aversions.

Get a Brand New Look
If you’re looking for a new start in the New Year, a new look may be just what you need. A makeover is a great way to find out what styles really work for you, have a little fun, and ultimately feel more confident and stylish. For a complete head-to-toe transformation, hire a wardrobe consultant to help you cull through your closet and shop for new pieces, a hairstylist who will take into account your hair texture, your face shape, your lifestyle, and the look you want, and a makeup artist who can teach you how to create natural and glamorous looks for all occasions.

Treat Yourself to a Massage
There’s a lot of pressure to start the New Year off right. Take a moment to de-stress from the holidays with an in-home massage. It’s a great way to ease muscle pain, soothe anxiety, boost immunity, improve sleep, and it forces you to take an hour (or more) to just relax.

Organize Your Finances
Dealing with monetary issues isn’t sexy, but if you take the time now to get your finances in order, set a budget for 2017, and even start your taxes, you’ll have a clear understanding of how to meet your goals going forward. While a financial planner will be useful for those looking to discuss investments and opportunities, an accountant is a good option for those who need help with taxes and budgeting.

Hire a House Cleaner
Scrubbing toilets, mopping floors, dusting light fixtures… They’re all things that need to be done in order for your home to be healthy and happy, but they’re not things most people enjoy. Give yourself the gift of some extra time this year and hire a house cleaner to come in and make your home sparkle and shine. It may feel like a luxury at first, but if you add up how much time and stress you’ll save, you may just find it makes perfect sense.

Take Up a New Hobby
Now that you have some free time thanks to the house cleaner, why not pick up a new hobby and finally learn that thing you’ve always wanted to learn? A new language, instrument, art, learn to sing or dance… Sign up for lessons and commit to the joy that comes with learning to do something you really love.

Train Your Dog
A well-trained dog is a happy dog. And a happy dog means a happy dog parent. Not to mention, obedience training means your dog will be more reliable and better behaved. It can even save his life. Hiring a trainer is a great way to teach your dog good manners, spend quality time with your pup, and get you the training you need to navigate through life with your four-legged friend. Yup, that’s right. Dog training is really human training too.
