Transcript from the video:

Hi everybody, I’m Diana Hodgson from The RedHeadAgent team and Keller Williams Real Estate here in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. 

Welcome to my channel!  This is my first video; I hope to have many more following.  And today, I’d like to tell you about the biggest mistake that most everyone makes when they’re downsizing. 

The biggest mistake is that they wait too long.  They wait too long to make this decision and unfortunately sometimes it’s a life change that will spur on the downsizing before someone is quite ready. 

So, my three tips in downsizing are make a plan.  Make sure that you’re sure where you want to
go.  Start to visit other communities or
start to look around with a professional. 
Hire a real estate agent to show you smaller houses.  Start to look at different neighborhoods, go
to the other state to look.  Do your
investigation…Make a plan. 

Secondly, tell someone about the plan. So if it’s your
daughter, or your son, your sisters, your brothers, somebody…Let them know what
you’d like to do in your retirement or when you’re starting to downsize so that
they understand if something should happen or if there’s a life change that
happens in your life that you can’t make decisions for yourself any longer, at
least someone knows what your plans are. 

And then third, hire a professional.  Hire professionals to help you move, to help
you downsize, to help you get rid of your stuff, to help haul away junk….all of
that.  And usually a good real estate
agent will have a list of people that will be able to help you do all of those
things and help you get through that process.

So, if you have any questions regarding real estate that I
can answer, please put them in the comments below.  Also, if you’d like to see my next video

next time.  Thanks so much, take good
care!

How To Be A Morning Person

Are you wishing that you could become one of those rare morning people? The peeps that wake up feeling refreshed & energized, get in the morning workout or wrap up some work.

Here are five tips to help you achieve that early bird status!

  1. Create a morning schedule. Write down the things you’d like to complete in the morning, set a time for each – stick with it. Once you have gotten out of bed early for one or two weeks consistently, you’ll find it gets easier to do.
  2. Let the light in. Natural or artificial, light tells your brain its time to get up and get going. If your bedroom does not have large windows where you can open the blinds up, consider a timed lamp or a alarm clock with a light.
  3. Prep and eat breakfast. Many of us who chose to skip breakfast, this is the key to perking up your energy in the morning. By prepping protein-focused meals the night before or you can grab a yogurt or fruit to consume it right after you wake.
  4. Get your body moving. Short walk around your neighborhood or spin class, getting your blood pumping will wake up your body, it also has a ton of other benefits, like stress & anxiety reduction.
  5. Feed your mind. Stimulate your brain, do something you enjoy first thing in the morning by reading your favorite book, daily meditation, or setting intentions.
Good Morning
