New Year, New Me

happy-new-year-2017So its almost that time where 2016 will come to an end and 2017 will start. I am very excited to see what kind of a roller coaster this year will bring me. I have so many questions like,

  • What new “realistic” Disney movies will come out?
  • How will President Trump do?
  • Will people become more accepting?
  • Where will my relationship take me?
  • Will I find an internship or end up studying abroad?
  • Will I get into business school?
  • How far will this blog take me?
  • How far will Nu Skin and Zumba take me?
  • Who will my little be?
  • Who will leave or enter my life?

and many many more…

new-years-resolution-listWhen January comes around, everyone will have a list of goals and resolutions but I wonder how long will I keep up with mine. My list below contains some personal goals but also some universal goals that I recommend everyone add to their list for 2017. The universal goals will be in bold and have a short description:

  • Go to the gym at least 3 times a week
    • Adding this to your personal calendar and making this a habit will help you create a better and healthier life style. I recommend taking fitness classes to maximize burned calories in one hour. Of course, I understand that you all have busy lives so if the gym is not an option, make the stairs instead of the elevators, lung when no one is watching, use that old bike or walk when you can, and create short 10-20 minute workout for when you wake up and before you go to bed at night.

  • Drink no more than one soft drink a week
    • Soft drinks are packed with sugar and the diet ones are even worst for you. The only reason that I would drink soda is if I need to hide the taste of something
      stronger. Juice also contains high sodium, sugar, and preservatives. Trying the best to cut these out your life will improve your health more then you would think!4425833-soft-drinks-hd-wallpapers
  • Drink more water and tea
    • I really shouldn’t have to explain the reasons we need to stay hydrated. I recommend drinking tea in the day as (green tea) have many hidden benefits. It is loaded with antioxidants which can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals are known to play a role in aging and all sorts of diseases. It can improves brain functions and make you smarter, burns fat by increasing your metabolism, lowers the risk of some cancer, and decreasing the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. There are many many more benefits out there with proven results. hmxf
  • Eat fast food no more than once a week
    • Do I even have to explain why? If you eat fast food regularly, try winding away from it rather than cutting it out completely. It will make the change much easier.

  • Meditate at least once a week
    • Many people underestimate the power of meditation. It is easier than you think. You are not required to find a special place to sit with your legs crossed and close your eyes for hours as most people assume. There are many different forms of meditation. To reduce stress and anxiety, I recommend every one take a few minutes out of every few hours to just close your eyes and not think about anything or do anything but the listen and focus on the sound of your every breath. Breath deep and try to feel your heart beat. Even just 5 minutes can be very effective. Do this before you start or day and before you go to sleep. benefits-of-meditation-2
  • Keep up with my facial care
    • Everyday, we age. Our skin ages. It ages because to everything it endures 24/7. Lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, stress, anxiety, environmental pollution, lack of exercise all effects your health and how your skin age. Using an effective skin care routine daily will help your skin greatly. 1572e714fd3-cache
  • Create a capsule wardrobe or at least downsize it
    • Many of use have more than 50 articles of clothing, even more than 100. Sometimes, we even forget what we have, or wear something only once before putting it in some corner and completely forgetting about it. I recommend everyone to downsize and keep what you know you will wear a least once a week to reduce clutter. style-capsule-wardrobe-today-tease-test-150727-01_1bc7061d9083956dce33a7346cefefd3-today-inline-large
  • Say I LOVE YOU more!
    • It seems like we often forget that people are not forever. People leave as often as babies come. I challenge everyone to say I Love You more. Say it to your parents, your relatives, your best friends, your spouse. i-heart-you-hanging-happy-valentines-day-2015-wallpaper

  • Be more organized

  • Find 5 new nu skin customers
