It’s almost February. So, how are your New Year goals going? (I prefer to say goals instead of resolutions. We’re not punishing ourselves we’re making ourselves better.) If you’re finding that you’re getting in less work outs, straying from the beauty regimen you set out and letting the little things slip, it’s time to reboot.
Here are my three tips to recommit to the goals you set for yourself this year:
- Remind yourself why. Take fifteen minutes and meditate or write down why you set each goal. Sometimes all it takes is a mind reboot to get us back on the wagon.
- Invest in your goals. Is there something that could help you achieve your goal better? A lot of women plan on committing to a better skin care regimen in the new year but it can become a daunting task when faced with a multitude of beauty products and a limited amount of time. Finding products that do double and triple duty are your savior. For example, new Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Correct & Cover Pink Grapefruit Moisturizer plays the role of a BB cream while fighting acne. The water-based formula with light grapefruit scent provides a tinted moisturizer that clears breakouts and provides coverage without clogging pores. Ditch the moisturizer, acne medicine and BB cream. It’s available in two shade: “Fair to Light” and “Medium to Tan.”
- Readjust. You have reminded yourself why, you’ve tried investing but it’s still not working out. It may be time to adjust. My goal for the year of cooking dinner at least give times a week was not realistic. I would come home late, stressed and take it out on my family. Instead, I decided to spend three hours on the weekend cooking the basic foundations of our meals for the week. I’ll make a meatloaf, whole chicken, shrimp and more during the weekend so all I have to do when I get home is whip up quick sides, a veggie and a salad. It takes the fuss out of cooking and everyone is happier.
Whatever your goals for this year, take the time every end of the month to remind yourself why, reinvest and readjust as needed. You’ll find when you reach December that you’ve done a much better job staying committed.
