New Year’s resolutions: What could you change in your life?

With New Year rapidly approaching, you might be wondering what you can change in your life throughout 2013. Of course, resolutions that are made on a whim can be easily broken, so why not think things through carefully and draw up some personal goals? If the cold weather has made your brain freeze, here are a few ideas for inspiration.

Don’t be too hard on yourself

You might want a breast reduction to perfect your assets or rhinoplasty to readjust your nose, but you don’t have to go under the knife to look beautiful. Everyone has flaws and there’s a high chance most people won’t even notice your imperfections – so don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead, try to accept the way you look and focus on the good parts of your body instead of the bad. Women come in all different shapes and sizes, so learn to love who you are and stop trying to change.

Give relaxation tips a go

Balancing a busy social life with a hectic career can take its toll on your health. Throw kids, animals, bills, mortgages, travel and other elements into the mix and you’re bound to feel a little worn out occasionally. If your energy levels start to slip, try making some time for yourself and take a moment to relax. A nice hot bath can work wonders, or you might decide to give yoga, Pilates or other breathing exercises a go. If you don’t have time to attend a specific class, there are plenty of relaxation videos online, so you might want to try one of these.

Arrange a holiday

If you haven’t been on holiday for a while, 2013 could be the year you go away. Sure, money might be tight, but you don’t always have to fly abroad to have a good time. There are plenty of wonderful holiday destinations in the UK and if the weather’s good, the coast is a great place to explore with the whole family. While hotels might be your accommodation of choice, you could always cut costs by going camping or staying in a caravan. This type of vacation can be a whole lot of fun, so don’t rule anything out.

New Year’s resolutions often centre around joining a gym, losing weight and eating healthily. While these things are important, it’s also a good idea to think outside the box.
