5 inspiring new year’s resolutions you can keep
Every year, magazines and websites inundate us with “New Year, New You” headlines, which can be inspiring except most of us find ourselves breaking our new year’s resolutions within the first week. Why exactly? Well, because they’re unrealistic. (Lose 30 pounds by February?) Or we secretly really just don’t want to do them. (Give up coffee? Hmm, maybe not.) But here’s an idea that might actually motivate you: If your new year’s resolutions revolve around looking your best, the instant gratification of feeling your very best will be what inspires you to actually keep them this year. So if the new year’s resolutions you’ve made already sound unrealistic, here are some new ones that you’ll actually be inspired to keep:
- New Year’s Resolution: Quit bad beauty habits. Nail biting, not washing your face at night, overusing the flatiron. There are some bad habits that can really mess with your beauty mojo. Choose the ones that apply to you and just say no.
- New Year’s Resolution: Get organized. Cleaning out your closet and reorganizing your makeup drawer might only take you a few hours this weekend, but it will make putting together your look every morning so much easier. I guarantee you’ll discover some cool clothes you almost forgot you had. Be sure to toss, donate or give away the things you don’t use anymore. They just get in the way when you’re trying to get to the good stuff.
- New Year’s Resolution: Try a new look. What’s the style you’ve been dying to sport but have been too afraid (or just too busy) to try? Just try it! All it takes is one trip to the store (and a few bucks).
- New Year’s Resolution: Find affordable style. It’s easier than you think. You don’t need to change what you’re buying, just where you’re shopping. Check out consignment and secondhand stores for inexpensive vintage finds.
- New Year’s Resolution: Get a healthier glow. OK, so maybe you’re not going to lose 30 pounds by February, but getting fit will help you look better in as early as a few weeks — I’m not just talking about looking slimmer but also getting a healthy all-around glow. Other health resolutions that can brighten your look: Drinking more water, eating more fruits and veggies and taking better care of your skin.
It’s up to you to find the beauty in the ugliest days
