A brand new year has begun and those New Year’s resolutions have everyone feeling bright, bushy tailed, and eager to get things done. Most of us have the same resolutions each year, because it’s a good idea to never stop trying to improve yourself. With that in mind, if your resolutions didn’t include self-improvement this year, but now you want to give it a try, read on below for a few tips to improve yourself, mind and body, in 2019.
Find Your Motivation
The holidays are over and while many of us are motivated to refresh our workout routines, cold winter may make snuggling on the couch more enticing that hitting the gym. When the couch is calling your name more than normal, use others’ weight loss stories for inspiration to help you get motivated. Remember, set smaller, tangible goals to help keep you motivated by reaching your goals along the way.
Cut Back or Give Up Booze
Women and alcohol mix differently than men and alcohol. For example, women experience faster intoxication levels and worse hangover symptoms. If you are looking to lose some extra weight, sharpen your mind, and maybe even improve your outlook on life, you may want to limit your drinking or try a one month detox. After all, you’ll skip the hangovers and can help you lose the extra weight around your waist.
Take Better Care of Your Skin
When winter strikes with its frigid temperatures, it’s easy to just slather on moisturizer and forget it. While moisturizing is a great idea, if you want to improve the way you take care of your skin in 2019, it’s not enough. You want to avoid hot showers, don’t skip the sunscreen, and try to stay out of the wind as much as possible. These are great tips for the rest of the year as well, if you want to start 2020 with the glowing skin you have always wanted.
Educate Your Mind
It’s important to note that self-improvement doesn’t need to be all about your physical appearance. One of your resolutions for 2019 should be to improve and educate your mind as well. You can do this by simply picking up a few books to read at the local library or signing up for classes in something you have always wanted to learn. You would be surprised at how much better you feel physically when you are educating your mind as well as improving your body.
Eat Right, Exercise Often
Of course, the normal self-improvement tips have to come into play here as well. None of the improvement tips above will work for you, if you aren’t eating right and exercising often. Throwing out the junk food and getting on a firm exercise schedule is the best way to accomplish these two goals in 2019. These are just a few of the top tips out there for self-improvement in 2019. Don’t forget that self-improvement isn’t just about improving your body, it’s about improving your mind as well.
