June marks the 6-month milestone of being officially half way through 2016. Where has the time gone?
Being this close to 2017 has made us stop and take a minute to look back on the past six months and remember all those new years resolutions that we forgot about come March and didn’t quite get around to fulfilling.
Here at Nuffnang we believe that you don’t have to wait until new years to make a change in your life for the better and we’re giving our resolutions another shot. We invite you to knock some off of your list before the end of the year too, so you can start 2017 as a new chapter with a fresh list of goals and never stop improving. Even though we already think you’re pretty great!
Whether it be running a marathon or losing 10 kilos, getting fit is one of the most popular new years resolutions for a reason. Being in good physical shape is crucial for your own happiness and wellbeing and you should never stop trying to be the best, happiest version of yourself.
Getting in shape may seem like a daunting task that is hard to achieve but if you need motivation Nuffnang can help! Check out some of our health blogs such as “Move Fuel Love” and “The Whole Daily” for fitness regimes, healthy recipes and tips to help you achieve your goals and get on your feet!

Money makes the world go round and we know just as well as anybody the struggle to save money these days- opportunities surround us daily to spend money on stuff that we don’t necessarily need.
We’re no strangers to the era of online shopping. In a time where e-commerce is skyrocketing and online spending is worth an estimated $1,471 billion dollars worldwide it can seem a struggle to save.
Saving money comes down to making ongoing choices and finding cheaper alternatives to your everyday spending. Throw in a little bit of prioritising and avoid grocery shopping when you’re hungry as impulse grocery shopping can have a negative effect on your wallet and lead to unhealthy eating throughout the week.

Everybody knows what it’s like to have a bit of stress, it’s just a common element of life sometimes but having excess levels of stress can impact your overall happiness and quality of life.
To reduce the amount of stress that is present in your life try getting more sleep each night so you can take on the day with energy and positivity. Possibly look in to picking up new hobbies that can help you relax such as yoga or Pilates.
Most importantly, the best way to reduce stress is to spend some good old fashioned quality time with the people that you love the most. Try to set some time aside for yourself to catch up with your family regularly and watch as the stress packs up its bags and leaves your life.
