Resolutions to a Healthier, Happier New Year

Are you looking to make 2019 your healthiest, happies year yet? Here are some tips from us here at Zafra!

Do it for yourself

Forget what people think and learn to do it for yourself. When you finally decide to treat others’ opinion as what they really are, opinions, you’ll relieve yourself of a ton of unnecessary stress and open up more attention to actually pursuing your goals. It’s tough to keep up with all of life’s demands, but it’s even more downright impossible to keep up with the demands of others. So this year, just focus on yourself. Focus on what you want, what will make you happy.  

Choose healthy habits, not rapid results

Did you know that 80% of New Year’s Resolutions fail after a month? So keep your resolutions simple this year and remember that consistency is key. If one of your goals this year is to look good and feel great year-round, understand that those two results are the byproduct of maintaining certain habits and behaviors throughout the year. Many try to focus on short-term goals, then just crashed and ended up right back where they started again. The downside of these quick fixes is not that they don’t work, but that they aren’t sustainable in the long run. You can easily achieve your goals by adopting better eating habits and increasing your activity levels.

Get your me-time every day

To stay healthy, happy, and emotionally balanced, take time each day to focus on caring for yourself. Meditate, read a book, write in a journal, watch your favorite tv series, take a hot bath, sip some tea, get a massage. Recharging a little each day will make a huge difference in your mood and how much you're able to exude positivity in the world.

Get enough sleep

Besides strengthening your immune system and giving you energy to be awesome and productive all day, proper rest also ensures healthy eating habits. On a daily basis, sleepy people eat more, and since the body functions poorly when sleep-deprived, it ends up storing more fat.

Go natural and organic

With many toxins involved in simple beauty routines, it’s no wonder people are looking to more natural ingredients – meaning ingredients that develop naturally, without external interference or manipulation. Simply put, products with natural ingredients ultimately provide several advantages for our skin, body, well-being, and the environment. Make this your year of patronizing products that do you good!
