Tips to keep up with your New Year's resolutions this year
New year, new opportunities
A brand New Year is a symbol of new beginnings and means another opportunity to start over. New beginnings give us an exciting feeling to set new resolutions as new opportunities come our way. Unfortunately, research has shown that good resolutions slowly fade into the background after January. These are often too big and too broad and sometimes not realistic to keep up with them. We have collected a number of tips for you on how to make your goals more achievable, for example with a detox.
#1: Set realistic goals
Research has shown that it takes 21 to 66 days to reset your brain and change an old habit to fix a new one. So, if you have reached your goal after about three months, chances are that your good resolutions have become a habit. For example, do you want to move more? A simple and achievable goal could be to walk 30 minutes a day for two months. You can aim for five days a week instead of seven days. This way you give yourself some space and prevent a failure feeling.
#2: Make it easier
Want to take better care of your mind and body? A dietary supplement, such as the Multi Compleet capsules from Zinergi can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. By taking one capsule of this multivitamin daily, you can help bridge some nutrient gaps, so you can meet the recommended amount of nutrients needed. Working overtime due to lack of concentration during you regular working hours? Try using a room spray such as the Focus Room Spray from Made by Coopers that you spray in your workspace or the Focus Essential Oil Blend from Made by Coopers, to help increase your concentration. Using a combination of both the Focus Room Spray and Focus Essential Oil Blend might be the gamechanger for you. This essential oil can be used in a diffuser or oil burner. This way you can maintain focus, prevent stress and have a more relaxed feeling when you end your working day.
#3: Treat yourself
Are you happy with the results of your good resolutions or did you achieve part of your goal? Then treat yourself with something you like. Rewarding yourself releases dopamine, a feel-good hormone released by the brain's reward centre. So, celebrate the small milestones, because that can help you stay motivated and can lead to long-term success. For example, give yourself a perfume as a gift, such as the P03 from aerlig or the Wet Lips Caring Glide Prebiotic from Lip Intimate Care.
#4: Organising and detoxing
Is getting more organised one of your resolutions? Try breaking down your organising goals into actionable steps. For example, instead of spending a whole day organising and cleaning the attic, try splitting the tasks during more days. Do you also want to organise your beauty products? Then take a closer look at your products. Do they still look good and do they still smell fresh? If not, throw them away (try to recycle if possible). Products that are no longer good can unfortunately cause skin irritation, pimples and eye infections. So out with the old and in with the new. A good resolution is also to clean your skin and hair well. Because clean skin and clean hair can absorb care products much better. For example, clean your skin every day with the Dirty Faace Cleanser from Faace or the Foam Cleanser from SKINHAPTICS. Make-up disappears like snow in the sun with the StartCycle Cleansing Oil from Suki. The Detox Hair Mask from Innersense Organic Beauty is a holy grail for your hair: it detoxifies and cares for your hair at the same time, so that dull hair and bad hair days stay far away.
#5: Make time for yourself and your selfcare moment
Another great resolution: make more time for yourself and plan more selfcare moments. A little more wellness moment in the bathroom not only makes you feel more beautiful, but it also has a positive effect on your health and stress level. So plan, if possible, a self-care moment every day. Light a scented candle like the Calm Natural Scented Candle from Made by Coopers and step into the shower or bath. For example, with the Shower Gel from SKINHAPTICS or the Vanilla Rose Bath Salt from Made by Coopers. After drying off, apply a nourishing body lotion such as the Delicious Body Lotion from SKINHAPTICS or a rich body oil such as the HydraCycle Hydrating Body Oil from Suki.
