3 Worthwhile New Year’s Resolutions to Take Up

December 7, 2017 No Comments

New Year is traditionally the time for resolution making –  but what if anything will you commit to doing in 2018, and why? Will you be forsaking cigarettes or cutting out alcohol for Dry January, perhaps you’re one of the thousands of people planning to take part in Veganuary this year? While giving up harmful habits can have undeniable health benefits, taking up new things can feel like a much more positive way to step into the New Year. So, if you were to make one resolution of something to take up or do more of what would it be? Here are three worthwhile suggestions to get you started...

 

Improve your sleep


Sleep can have such an all-pervasive impact on our lives. Sleep badly for one night and it can impact your mood, productivity, relationships, diet and exercise the next day. If you suffer longer-term sleep issues you could feel a series of negative effects as a result. Whether you’re simply trying to pack so much in that you often burn the candle at both ends and don’t make it into bed at a decent time or you’re unlucky enough to be plagued with anxiety or sleep disorders that keep you awake, make 2018 the year you concentrate on improving the quality of your sleep.



Poor sleep is associated with health issues such as weight gain and depression, so the importance of getting a decent night’s sleep should never be underestimated. If you need help getting to sleep or staying asleep, SleepBubble is a resource where you’ll find lots of information about sleep and sleep issues.

 

Find an outlet


Do you have something you look forward to doing every day or at least once a week? A time that you can really relish? We don’t all have jobs we love and find rewarding, and while changing careers is a popular route to take when it comes to resolutions, could finding an appropriate outlet benefit you even more? Sometimes finding a creative or rewarding project or pastime to focus on can complement our day job and open up new avenues and possibilities for the future.

 

From taking an evening class through to training for a race, could you set your own challenge and make opportunities for yourself for the year ahead? It may be as simple as dedicating more time to something you already love or reconnecting with a hobby that you’ve loved in the past. Is now the time to join your local netball club or set up the kind of mum’s group you’d like to go to in your area, maybe you’d like to show your blog a little more love? Expanding your mind, social sphere or abilities are all great goals to get on board with.

 

Practice self-care


After the hustle and bustle of the festive period, taking a little time out can be just what the doctor ordered but is this something you should be thinking about doing throughout the coming months too? Being able to recognise when you’re burning out is really important. As well as committing your time to doing interesting things you enjoy, it’s equally as vital to know when doing nothing at all is your best option.

 

If you’re the kind of person who always likes to be productive it can be hard to recognise the benefits of taking time out to do simple things like painting your nails, running a bubble bath or even having a Netflix binge, but looking after yourself by factoring downtime into your schedule helps ensure you’re not running on empty. If doing nothing at all is something you struggle with, you may find learning mindfulness techniques or taking a gentle yoga class can help you find your inner calm.

 

One of the biggest reasons people fail to maintain resolutions is that they go so hard and fast at them when the New Year comes round that they quickly lose steam. So if you want to make changes for next year, why not take gentle steps to get those wheels in motion now?

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
