That’s (almost) a wrap, 2015 ! With only a few more days left in the year, it’s only fitting to talk and reflect about the past 12 months. In taking a look back, we’ve gathered 7 things to remember when stepping into 2016 and want to share them with you, our Hunnis! Click the jump to read our mantra for what we think is going to be the best year yet!
1. Find time for yourself
It’s way too easy these days to get lost in the chaos of everyday life. That’s why it’s always important to take time every so often for just you. Whether that’s taking a bubble bath or just reading your favourite book, free from distractions, do it. You’ll thank yourself later for it.
2. Laugh. A lot.
This is one tidbit of advice you should hold onto, no matter what the year. We’re pretty sure it’s healthy and infectious so why not, right?
3. Build relationships
You only open yourself to opportunity by doing this. Whether it be business related or personal, everyone can grow and learn from one another.
4. Do something you’ve never done before
This past year, we were a part of Refresh Market, a one-day marketplace in Squamish, BC two times out of the year where local vendors and brands set up shop. It was the first time we took part in anything of it’s kind and we were and still are so happy we did! Not only did it open our eyes to new brands and local artists but we also opened ourselves up, Hunni’s Boutique, to a new audience. Doing something you’ve never done before is downright nerveracking but you really don’t know what will happen until you try.
5. Acknowledge the good (but also the bad)
We can’t always just look at the good. We have to see both sides. This keeps us level headed and prepared for the unexpected.
6. Whoever you appreciate, tell them
Who doesn’t like knowing they are welcomed, appreciated and respected? Reminding those around you how much you appreciate their hard work, honesty, friendship etc. etc. will always go much farther than you think. Don’t just assume they know.
7. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Your grade seven teacher probably told you this as well but it’s a statement too real to not mention. Who wants to struggle with something when they don’t have to?
