As we enter the new year, more and more people have asked me about resolutions for the year. I hadn't thought too much about it before the new years, but now that the year has started, here's 9 healthy resolutions to keep for 2015 that are totally doable! And they should become more of a lifestyle than kept for just 1 year.
1.) Hydrate | I never drink enough water, but this is something I'm consciously trying to remember. Treat your skin and body right from the inside out by drinking plenty of water. The general rule of thumb is to take your weight and divide it by 2. That's the number of ounces you need to drink each day. It also helps if you have a pretty water bottle or tumbler that you can carry with you everywhere.
2.) Sleep | I love sleep, but I am guilty, as many of you are, of staying up to watch one extra show every so often. Sleep leads to better mood and better health over all, especially with your skin. I know I tend to breakout when I don't sleep.
3.) Moisturize | It's winter, and my skin is super dry from the cold weather and heaters inside. Renew your skin with a good scrub (like my two DIYs here and here) and moisturize after to seal it all in and keep your skin healthy.
4.) Floss | This one's one that we all know we need to do, but don't do enough of. It's simple and really good for your oral health, so I just gotta make sure to do it!
5.) Throw Away old makeup | Bacteria can accumulate over time on makeup so here's guideline for when it's time to toss it.
6.) Clean your makeup brushes regularly | Check out my how to here. You want to keep your brushes clean because they could accumulate dirt and bacteria which is then transferred to your face. Yuck!
7.) Cook more | Cooking at home leads to healthier cooking because you can control what you put into to your food. Limit the salt and try new recipes! Lemon is a great way to add flavor without adding extra calories. Try making this simple clam dish.
8.) Travel more | Make time to travel. Experiencing new destinations and cultures allows for inspiration and enriching your life and mind. Some major Wanderlust inspo here.
9.) Try new things | This just piggybacks off the idea of travel. Try new things, experiment with new recipes, learn a new hobby or a new language. I always say, try something once before you decide you don't like it.
What are some of your resolutions? Are any of these included into yours?
