Happy New Year!
The start of a new year is the perfect time for self-reflection. It’s also a great opportunity to set some new goals and create new habits that will help you live your best year ever!

This year, we put together a HUGE post with the 22 most inspiring charts, graphics, and lists to help you become the best version of yourself.
From clearing out your closet to eating better to feeling happier and more confident, these 22 graphics will guide you on your journey to being a better you.

10 Money Challenges Everyone Needs to Try
Struggling to escape debt or save for that new house or car? Money troubles can have a sense of impending doom that is incredibly demotivating. Find that motivation again — and save a surprising amount of money — with one of these money challenges.
To get started, try looking for new sources of income, or instituting monthly “no spending weekends” when you literally don’t spend a dime — for an entire weekend! If you succeed at one or both of those, try one of the other challenges from the list — such as setting a goal to save a certain amount in 30 days, or no eating out for a month. It’s impressive how motivating these goals can be when you build them on top of one another. And if you fail? Step back, take a deep breath, and just try again. You can do it!
