Clear The Way
Remember the old saying "out with the old and in with the new"? Well, it's time to put those words into action. If you want to attract new things to your life, then you have to clear out anything that's preventing that from happening; starting with the physical stuff. Do a little bit of "winter cleaning" in your closet and donate anything that you don't want or use. Also, organize your office space, bedroom, or book collection. The goal is to create a feeling of freshness and clarity in your home, so do whatever you need to do to accomplish that!
Now that you've cleared some room for change in your home, it's time to think about what things you can do to create room for change in your life.

Get A Good Night's Rest
Are you the type of person that gets four hours of sleep on a good night? If so, then you need to find a way to get a few more hours of sleep. When you're sleeping, your body is hard at work healing and repairing itself, which is why a lot of people sleep more while they're sick.
