The New Year is the perfect time for resolutions that should make our lives better and more fulfilling. But you don’t always need a special date to get rid of something that does no good for you. Here are seven things you can get rid of this year and make some physical and emotional room for new stuff, people and experiences in your life.

Old clothes you no longer need

If you’re one of those people who never throw anything away – you never know when you might need it – know that, in order to welcome new things, you must clean up and get rid of the old ones. There’s simply no better excuse for shopping!


Phone and social media addiction

This might be the hardest thing from this list to get rid of. Whether you need to be online because of your work or you do it in your free time, the constant exposure to influences and information will definitely leave you exhausted and anxious by the end of the day. Start by replacing your phone with a book, music, or a movie 10 minutes at a time and build up from there.

Beauty products you will never use

If you’re like most women, you probably have a stash of beauty products you never use – in fact, you don’t even remember where and when you got them! Though it might seem like a waste, throwing them out (or gifting those that haven’t been used at all) will feel great!


Random stuff on your shelves and in drawers

Old empty boxes? Useless small jars? Old broken headphones? Numerous flyers and expired coupons? If you can’t find a function for it, throw it in the trash!

Snooze function

Oh yeah. Those extra 5-10 minutes you spend somewhere between being asleep and awake will actually make it harder for you to get up and get going with your day.

Fast food and sugary drinks

Do we really need to explain this one?


Toxic friends

No matter how long you know them, some people are simply bad for you. People change, so if you notice that hanging out with an old friend is leaving you exhausted and depressed, perhaps it’s time to reevaluate the friendship. There are so many amazing people you could hang out with instead!
