A Better You in 2014

By Dana Fox

Happy New Year!  Today we get a fresh start at really making another year count. These are a few of the things I am going to do for myself, and I hope you’ll join me! I am focused on overall becoming a better person, and these things will lead me there.

Travel to New Places
I don’t travel much… at all. Even going to the post office is an adventure for me on any given day. If you’ve stuck around for a while, you’ll know the reason for this is my crazy agoraphobic mind. Still, I plan on getting out more and putting myself in those uncomfortable situations by traveling more. Traveling doesn’t have to be some well planned out vacation. It can be a quick roadtrip to a town you haven’t visited before just for the purpose of experiencing a new place.

Love Your Body
When you eat right and stay active, you’ll have more energy to do the things you love. Do little things, like making a smoothie every day. These past few months I’ve been in a bit of a slump but have a new elliptical I’ll be putting to use daily (hopefully I don’t eat my words) and will be more mindful of what I put into my body. Your body is yours and the only one you get, so why not make it feel good?

Create More
Creating is the essence of Wonder Forest. I encourage you all to get more creative and use your natural abilities to make art. I’m going to try venturing back into painting. Buy a sketchbook or write in a journal. Use your mind and your hands to produce things that speak to you.

Learn Something
What good is a year gone by if you haven’t learned anything? I’m currently doing a calligraphy course by Molly Jacques on Skillshare and learning more about photography. Learning is as simple as picking something you want to know more about and researching it.

Read More
When I was younger, I used to read non stop. Then life took over and I barely find the time to sit down with a book. Lately, I’ve been reading A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle and it’s changed my entire outlook on life. I recommend it highly. Read for fun, but also read to open your mind to new possibilities and ideas and to gain a greater knowledge.

How do you plan on spending 2014?
