At the beginning of the year, it seems like an appropriate time to start things. Start a reading plan, start an exercise plan, start a personal growth plan. We like new things and we like having done something for ourselves.
Here is a simple way to start something that will benefit you for the coming year. Subscribe to a magazine. Set yourself up to receive copies from home. Magazines are usually focused on one area of interest. Pick a hobby or something you would like to belong to and spend the thirty dollars. Magazines can supplement your reading and make you more aware and more rounded.
In my house, my wife and I have subscribed to a magazine each in January. Often times we mix it up and choose something entirely different the next near. Magazines are an easy way to keep informed and to let others know what interests you.
Give yourself permission to do something for yourself today. Pick an interest and subscribe to a magazine today. That simple act can go a long way in building the life that you want.
