No need to wait until January to start your resolutions. Here are Madamnoire's list of resolutions to start now.
WRITE IT DOWN
It’s proven that writing out a vision or goals and positing them somewhere you can revisit them daily is a key factor in success. Try sticky notes on the mirror, a white board on the fridge, or a small journal by your bed.
Regardless of your religion, meditation is a time for your to spend listening to God, the universe, or just your inner voice. Oprah and Deepak have started meditation challenges and it’s a great way for your to get started. Meditation will give you the focus and peace you need to enter into the new year ready and peaceful.
JOIN THE GYM NOW
If fitness is on your agenda for 2014, join the gym now. Establish your routine now before all the new year’s crowd takes over the machines. If you begin your routine now you’ll already be in the full swing of things by the time the New Year rolls around. And who knows, you could fit in a sexier NYE dress too!
DELETE NUMBERS OR BLOCK
We all know the holiday season is a time for your past to resurface with a “hey stranger, merry Christmas” text. If you already know you don’t want to entertain certain people, delete and block the numbers now before they call. Save yourself one eye roll later on.
PUT DOWN THE BAGGAGE
How long are you going to carry that unforgiveness? That hurt? Or anger? Put it down. Now. don’t wait until midnight on Dec. 31st. Enter some therapy or read a self-help book or go lay down at the front of your church. Whatever you need to do to make sure you put those heavy emotional bags down sooner rather than later.
GET YOUR MONEY IN ORDER
Do you have a savings goal for 2014? You can open a new savings account now and make your first deposit in January! Avoid the holiday rush and get your financial accounts in order prior to the New Year. Make some investments too! Get a financial planner so that you are all prepared to start fresh.
START HOLIDAY SHOPPING
Why are you at the mall every year on Christmas Eve fighting? Start. Shopping. Now. True there are great deals for the last minute shopper but that’s so stressful. You have weeks to get this done. Don’t procrastinate.
BUY A PLANE TICKET
Why wait until 2014 to start thinking about your vacations? Buy a plane ticket now! If you buy the ticket, you can figure out the rest later. Don’t let time, people and life get the best of you later on and you end up cancelling your vacation again because you waited too late to book the flight. Buy the ticket (a refundable one if possible) and give yourself something to look forward to next year.
You don’t have to wait until next year to give back. Holidays are perfect for volunteering. Perhaps you’ll even find something to do throughout the year not just on holiday time.
VISIT THE DOCTOR
People get so busy during the holiday season that they forget to take care of themselves. Go to the doctor. Especially if you have a day or two of vacation time. Make those appointments you’ve pushed off all year and go into 2014 healthy!
It's holiday season! Here are some do's or don'ts of company holiday parties -- via Madamenoire.com.
DO ACT WITH COMMON SENSE
Please don’t let the social atmosphere fool you as company holiday parties are still affiliated with your company. When attending any event, make sure you exhibit professionalism at all times. While it’s okay to let your hair down and enjoy yourself, don’t get so comfy that you disclose personal information that will make people give you the side eye.
DON’T TREAT IT LIKE A BUSINESS MEETING
Geez talk about vibe killer! Do you know of anyone in your office who can’t seem to separate themselves from the world of business? While you should be professional during company holiday parties, that doesn’t in any way mean you lose your social bug. Take some time to walk around the party and see what people are talking about. Chances are there will probably be little to no serious conversations about work as people want to have a good time. Try not to be a Debbie Downer.
DO RETHINK THAT OUTFIT
Even if you are one stylish person around the office, it’s probably not a good idea to wear your freakum dress to an office party. Do you really think something like that is appropriate to a work-related function? Even if you do, please rethink your wardrobe choice as you don’t need to attract certain attention to yourself around the office. Sure no one expects you to wear a power suit. But please oh please say no to outfits with plunging necklines, short hemlines and anything else that could be considered questionable.
DON’T SHOW YOUR DRINKING SKILLS
For heaven’s sake please try to contain your desire to drink excessively at a company party. There will be tons of opportunities to do so on your own time and away from co-workers. Even if alcohol is served, drink responsibly.
DO EAT BEFORE ARRIVING
Unless stated, most holiday parties involve some edibles (generally appetizer-sizes) and drinks for the taking. Though you should sample the things that interest you, it’s good practice with work-related events to eat a little something ahead of time so you aren’t stuffing your face at the party. Even if it’s a small meal, having something in your stomach will also help you in the alcohol department.
DON’T ISOLATE OTHERS
One of the reasons why companies host holiday parties is because they want their employees to socialize. Get out and mingle with people you know and don’t know around the office. It’s so easy to get caught up in our own groups that we fail to consider others could be just as much fun.
DO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST ONLINE
If you are a Facebook junkie or social media queen, proceed with some caution when it comes to the holiday party and what you post online. Though it should generally be okay to upload a photo with your co-workers, be careful not to post too much as you might be in violation of company policies. It’s always best to ask ahead of time to make sure what’s okay and what’s not.
DON’T GET INAPPROPRIATE
Just because you are at a holiday party does not mean it’s the right time to break out off-colored jokes and comments. Let’s not forget that this is still a company social which means you need to watch certain things you say. Topics that focus on religion and politics for example should not be brought up.
DO HAVE FUN
Enjoy yourself at company holiday parties as it’s a fun chance to mingle with co-workers and management. Even if you find yourself a busy during this time don’t pass it up as opportunities like this tend to come a few times a year or season.
