“80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February.” — Wallethub.com
That doesn’t sound too promising does it?
Instead of choosing the typical new year goals like losing weight, quitting smoking or committing to a new fitness routine, how about focusing on a habit or lifestyle change that will improve the way you care for yourself.
Especially during the holidays we prioritize finding gifts for others, spending time with family, attending work parties, etc. What better time to put an emphasis on yourself & ring in the new year with a little bit of self-care.
But what is self-care?
By putting emphasis on your current routines and being intentional with taking care of your health: mental, emotional, physical, etc. you’ll worry less about reaching a new year goal and focus on living a life that’s best for you.
Make it a priority and gently introduce a new habit or lifestyle change that will continue long after February.
We’ve curated our top 10 beauty & body care products to ease you into a new year of self-care.
How are you prioritizing yourself in 2020?
