We can’t believe we’re saying it, but HAPPY NEW YEAR, friends!
It seems like most of the world believes 2021 is going to be infinitely better than 2020, but we’re going to let you in on a little secret:
Whether this year is good or bad depends entirely on YOU.
That’s right. Even if it’s another year of mask-wearing, social distancing, natural disasters, and murder hornets, you can still make this the best year of your life.
We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite Modestshoppin Movement podcast episodes to help you get started.

Got a long list of “to-do” items overwhelming you? Simplify your life by whittling it down to just THREE THINGS you can tackle each day.

She also shares how she prioritizes her list for maximum efficiency. (Hint: you’re going to want to invest in a journal or a notebook.)

“This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t push yourself and strive to be better and to do things that you’ve always wanted to do, but … not at the cost of the things that are most important to you,” says Brig.
