This month, as we arrive in the new year, is a great time to set some goals for yourself on how you want to feel and look. Many people make New Year’s resolutions, but too many of those resolutions are unrealistic or unattainable. Don’t fall for those quick-fix ideals this year. Instead, take the time to think about what small steps you can take to be an even better version of yourself in the coming months.

Here are some ideas for healthy resolutions to help you look and feel your best:

  1. Find a spa and/or salon you can trust

Often, one of the first steps in boosting your self-esteem is finding a salon that makes you feel good. Look for a company that uses natural, eco-friendly products, has well-trained and friendly staff, and helps you find the styles and treatments that bring out your natural beauty.

  1. Stop using harsh chemicals

Your skin and hair deserve to be pampered, so why are you still using cheap, harsh products? These days, there are so many alternatives out there, that are kind to your body and to the environment. Choose brands that nourish, not punish, your skin and hair.

  1. Get trims regularly

You’ve probably heard that you should trim your hair every 6-8 weeks, and this year, try actually sticking with this schedule. It’s pretty easy to have a standing appointment, and these quick trims can help your hair stay healthy and grow out strong and stylish.

  1. Prioritize your bodywork

There is nothing quite as soothing and healing as a massage, but too many people don’t make them a priority. Massage is a legitimate therapeutic technique- it’s not just a frivolous splurge. Find a therapist that you love, and make appointments regularly to work out the kinks.

  1. Step outside the box

When you want a break from the norm, and a new boost in your allure, try out a new style! Cut or color your hair differently, pick a bold nail color, or consider waxing or sunless tanning this year. The sky’s the limit, and you’ll be happy you had the courage to reinvent yourself!
