Out with the old in the used

The new year is here to stay and with it come all the overwhelming and hated resolutions. This year i’ll get fit, i’ll lose the weight, i’ll buy a house, get married, have a baby, and travel the world. THIS IS THE YEAR. No wonder people hate New Year’s resolutions. On the other hand, there are those who make non and then are deemed undriven, at the least.

A new year means new opportunities for sure, and we’re here to offer a way to set goals without the overwhelming pressures of resolutions.

Resolutions, like lifestyle deadlines (I will stick to the diet, I will work out X times a week) tend to get dropped pretty fast. Why? Well, habits take time to build and have to be realistic with the present way of living, it’s very hard for the mind and body to do 180 flips when it comes to habits. And like we’ve said here before, sometimes imperfection can turn out to be even better than perfection. Stay with us on that thought.

The same way as less can be more, reused can be better than new. And this applies to multiple aspects of life. Hand me downs in all shapes and forms can give an essence of newness. People have been revamping kitchens, houses etc since forever and doing so with affordable budgets is becoming regular practice. It’s also a good way to change your closet. Buy secondhand or used clothes, take hand-me downs. Sure, they’re old, but they’re new, for you. The same can go for relationships. Who says you need to make new friends? Reconnect with the ones’ you have but maybe have been busy to see. Work on your relationship with your family. Don’t use drugs as bandaids and work on your good old body’s healing, he has endless possibilities.

So maybe, resolutions can be shifted, at the very least in grammar, and we can start taking care of what’s really important, because there is no time to waste.
