Grab the reins and take control of your year.

Here's to new beginnings. Here's to a fresh start. Here's to the five things you should remember to get the most out of 2014.

The past is in the past.

We've all had our fair share of errors in judgment, mistakes, and problems last year, and all the years before that. But there’s no time to cry over spilled milk this year. Though it's true that you should remember the lessons that last year has taught you, you should also remember that there's nothing you can do about things that have already happened. So this 2014, it's time to let it go, and move on.

Health is wealth.

Cliché as it may seem, our health is one of the most valuable things in life. And it's no secret that many people have been neglecting their health for a long time now. This year, it's time to take a look at the food that you're scarfing down, and be a little more selective of what you eat. Eating a double patty burger isn't a problem; just remember to balance it out with some good old exercise too.

You may not have as much time as you think.

Many of us have spent 2013 procrastinating the heck out of everything. From schoolwork to chores, to just about anything that takes the form of work, many people have managed to find a way to delay. This is the year that you have to realize that procrastinating literally never gets anything done. And with only 365 days in a year, you may have to consider breaking that bad habit.

It's okay to have bad days.

People assume that a new year equals a year filled with bright smiles, and infectious laughter. That isn’t necessarily true. Every year comes with its ups and downs, and 2014 isn’t any different. So this year, if you find yourself in a bad slump, just remember that it's okay to feel moody, and a tad grumpy, just as long as you know that eventually that will end too. So keep your head up, you’ll be okay.

Love is all that matters.

If you spent the last year grinding your teeth at your mom because she wouldn’t let you go that party, or not speaking to your sister because she borrowed your favorite shirt without permission, maybe this year its time to change that. 2014 should be the year you realize that there are people who love you, and that you should show your love for them more frequently, because you never know how much time you have left with them. So don’t spend it griping about things that won't really matter in the end.
