January 1st is a date when we dream dreams about the new year and set goals to get further and do more things. This year, here are five resolutions and five ways to make that magic happen.
Resolution 1: Show Pride in Myself
This year, love who you are! Celebrate what’s good, acknowledge what needs work, and begin to weed out what needs to go. But remember that regardless of where you are in this journey, you’re awesome. Let that be reflected in your style, too, as you choose accessories that honor who you are and all the unique gifts and talents that you have.
Resolution 2: Play More
Life gets so busy and it’s easy to spend all our time working, trying to make ends meet or to get ahead. However, as the old proverb says, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” This year, choose to enjoy life and play. Maybe you play sports, and it’s a matter of getting out to the basketball court for a pickup game. Perhaps you enjoy heading to the backyard with your kids to chase them around. Or maybe play for you is a creating something. Or maybe it’s enjoying a good book in a quiet place. Whatever play is for you, take more time to do something that brings you joy.
Resolution 3: Always Look Sharp
I don’t know about you, but at the beginning of the year, I do a lot of assessing of my home and my closet. I clean a lot of things out, identifying things that no longer represent who I am. Some years it’s about colors that just don’t work. Other years it’s about styles that I don’t like or that just don’t look good anymore. And once I’m done, and all the bags of things have been dropped off at a local donation spot, it’s nice to see the space and to identify the wardrobe gaps that need to be filled.
It’s always important to look good, whether it’s for work or working out. So take a moment and figure out what’s working and not working, clean a few things out, and bring in a couple of things that make your heart happy as they up your style game.
Resolution 4: Be More Zen
We all know the hectic rush and bustle as we go through life doing and creating and helping and hurrying. There’s noise everywhere, from our offices to our cars to our homes. But silence has beauty and it allows our minds and bodies a chance to reset and rest. It’s amazing what a single deep breathe will do for your nervous system and stress level.
This year, maybe choose to find quiet moments to be still, to reflect, and to just be in the moment. And if remembering to take these moments is difficult, set an alarm or find an object that can remind you to pause for just a minute and find some zen.
Resolution 5: Stick to My Budget
Surprised? I think sticking to a budget or any other financial goal is probably one of the most popular, and most challenging goal. But just because you have a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look good or feel good. It just means you have to make smart choices.
