New year, new luck. Sounds good, doesn't it? The end of the year is the best time to put your troubles behind you and wish for something new.

Even if the past year hasn't been the best, set yourself up positively for the next. Here are a few tricks to do just that.

✨ Give up a bad habit 

It doesn't have to be cigarettes, alcohol, men, etc. Start with something small but positive. Make a promise to yourself that from next year you will stop biting your nails or that you will get a much-needed haircut, start working out or buy a nice outfit. All doable things and small enough that you won't be disappointed if they don't happen. 

✨ Wish for a new... love interest

There's nothing wrong with this especially if the past year has met you with people who are far from ideal. Why not dream of something better. Let's wish next year will surprise us with someone different.

✨ Buy something new for your home and open it on the first of January 

Who says gifts have to come from other people? Give yourself a new piece of furniture, or a lovely calendar, or an ornament for the bedroom, or a bin in a weird shape... the ideas are endless. Buy yourself something nice to decorate your home with on the first day of the new year and you're guaranteed to be ready for a fresh start. 

✨ Share New Year's Eve with loved ones 

This is the most important thing you need to do to start the next year with a smile. There's no better feeling than popping the champagne with the people you care about. Whether it's your mother, your sister, your best friend or your lover - you decide. Make sure you're together at the beginning of next year and at exactly midnight, tell them you love them. You'll definitely wake up with a smile on the first day of the new year, and every day after that.
