3 Things that shouldn't be a New Year's Resolution

Updated: Dec 31, 2017

The new year is here and so are the new years resolutions. Let us save you the trouble of quitting your new years goals before they even begin. Here are 3 things that don't need to be on your New Years Resolution list!

I personally love new beginnings because they represent a fresh start. A new perspective on how to approach life as we know it. Some may say its cliche to have resolutions because eventually you'll fall back into old bad habits. Nevertheless year after year women are making impossible resolutions that just aren't realistic and quite frankly go against the very uniqueness of being who you are.

1) Losing weight to fit societal norms.

We completely understand the goals of wanting to be healthy and happy. However, there's a difference in the reasoning for wanting to drop a few extra pounds. It's important to know what weight and size fits your body type and work from there. Some women want muscular gains and others want a curvaceous shape. It is best to do what's best for your health and well being. Sure we'd all be happy with our bodies if we looked like #SerenaWilliams, #JLo, or #TeyanaTaylor! We just want you to embrace your body at any size and appreciate the process of building a better you. Work to be healthy not skinny.

2) Drastic changes to your daily life.

Let's face it, everyone is ready to cut people out of their lives, change phone numbers, stop eating meat, start working out, and begin waking up at 5am. Don't forget to add juicing weekly and daily meditation to that! Let's be realistic. The only difference between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2017 is 24 Hours. If you haven't already started your resolutions and healthy habits try not to through your body, mind, and spirit into shell-shock. A quick and drastic change is a guaranteed way to not develop consistency. After all, conistency is what it takes to maintain a balanced life. So spare yourself the "cold turkey" approach and gradually make changes that appropriate.

3) Attempt to eliminating your past completely.

Believe it or not being fired from that job, losing that relationship, or going broke actually taught you something. The idea of trying to forget everything and everyone from your past isn't the most profound decision to make. Why? Because each of those experiences taught you something that will either be a lesson or become baggage if not managed properly. So don't seek to eliminate things from your past until you understand their impact on your future.
