Most of us begin the New Year with great intentions. We vow to eat less and more healthily, stick to those exercise routines we’ve been planning, visit our friends and family more and cut down on alcohol!
Maybe it’s time to be more realistic and choose a resolution that you can actually keep! Up your exercise level to a reasonable level rather than vowing to hit the gym 7 days a week and you may well stick to the plan. Let’s face it most of us have given up by the first week in February!
So, what can we do to stick to our goals? We’ve taken advice from the American Psychological Association to help you reach your goals this year. Zappas wish you good luck in 2016!
New Year Resolution: Have a Hair Makeover at Zappas Hair Salons
Have you been stuck with the same old hairstyle for years? Having a hairstyle makeover is an easy resolution to achieve with the help of one of our team of stylists at one of our Zappas Hair Salons.
A new hairstyle or hair colour can make you feel so much better about the way you look and give you a boost in confidence, which often has a knock-on effect in other areas of your life. You may find the confidence to socialise more, learn a foreign language, apply for that dream job, or join your local Insanity fitness class!
If you’re fed up with your old hairstyle and want a new look in 2016, our stylists are here to help you. We can give you advice on which hairstyle would suit your face shape and lifestyle so we can create a style you love.
Do you fancy changing your hair colour in 2016? We offer a free hair colour consultation and can guide you through the hair colour techniques and hair colours available to give you a great new look.
How to Keep Your New Year Resolution
Do not despair! According to the American Psychological Association, you can stick to your New Year’s resolution by following these steps:
Start out with just one resolution. If you try and focus your energy on changing just one aspect of your life, your chances of success will be even greater.
Reward yourself. Give yourself a small reward whenever you achieve a goal, this will help maintain your motivation and give you a sense of progress.
Don’t despair. Treat any failure as a temporary setback rather than a reason to give up altogether.
Try for a new resolution in 2016. Revisiting resolutions you didn’t achieve before could lead to frustration and disappointment.
Think about what’s really important to you. You don’t have to follow the crowd and go with the usual resolutions.
Don’t give up! Try not to be too hard on yourself just because you ate and enjoyed that Chinese Takeaway on Friday night! Recover from your treat and get back on track, you will be much happier with yourself.
