The first month of 2019 has come and passed, and you may have already broken a few of your New Year’s resolutions. But don’t let that discourage you from making this year your best year yet. Below, a few lifestyle changes you can still adopt for the rest of the year and steps to put them into action:
1. Break your bad habits.
Everyone has her fair share of bad habits. And each new day is the perfect time to quit those vices that aren’t really doing anything for your health or well-being, whether it’s smoking or even something as small as biting your nails. Try reducing your vices little by little to ensure a smooth and lasting transition to your best self.
2. Start being healthy.
You tell yourself this every year, but now it’s time to take actual measures to improve your health. Start preparing your meals for the week on Sundays—make sure to add plenty of vegetables and lean meat. You can also try squeezing in a quick workout three to four times a week, by exercising at the gym or simply following an aerobics video at home. Your body will thank you for all these healthy changes.
3. Be more mindful.
One of the big wellness trends that really emerged in 2018 is the concept of “mindfulness,” or being in the moment. It can be honed via practices like yoga or meditation. It may sound like a small change, but calling attention to the present will help you learn to calm down, making tough situations easier for you to handle.
4. Learn to be responsible with your money.
You may love to treat yourself to a fancy meal or high-end makeup, but it’s time to learn how to manage your finances. Set a budget and think about what you really need to spend your money on. Record the price of your purchases to give yourself a bigger picture of what you spend on and possibly the things you can cut back on. This will help you save enough to buy that one thing you actually really want.
5. Don’t neglect your looks.
While it may seem shallow, how you look really does have an effect on how you feel and how you perceive yourself. Even something as small as a bad hair day can have a huge impact on your self-esteem and how you deal with the rest of your day. True, you’re already beautiful, but if you’re insecure about issues like acne, visit your derma to see what can be done about it. If you’re embarrassed or worried about all the hair you see on your shower drain, try products that help reduce visible signs of hair fall, like Cream Silk’s Hair Fall Defense Conditioner.
Every year gives you the opportunity for growth, and you can make this your best year yet by making a conscious effort to improve yourself and stick to your resolutions. Don’t forget that it’s the little steps you take daily that transform you into the person you want to be. Last January 22, Cream Silk invited some of our favorite modern Filipinas to the Cream Silk Resolution Studio, a venue where they were able to set their resolutions for 2019—including using Cream Silk everyday—to make it their best year yet.
