Each New Year is a chance to refresh and start the new year off with a bang! Don’t pigeonhole yourself with resolutions that you’re bound to fail or soon forget. It’s easy to go by the old standards of eating healthy, losing weight and saving money, but beyond those basics, what should you do differently? We’re rounding up ways inspired by Alessandra Ambrosio’s lifestyle and mantra to focus on yourself by creating better habits that will benefit you and the world around us. Your 2018 resolutions will be more than obtainable!
Embrace a Better You
Losing weight and getting fit is often one of the most common resolutions, and while there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, this is often a good time to think beyond that, such as improving your lifestyle, bettering yourself from within and giving back to the community.
Think of the Environment
While you’re at it, why not make 2018 a kinder year for our beautiful planet? There are so many things you can do that won’t feel like a huge sacrifice day-to-day, but as each person contributes, this will make a difference. Whether you chose to recycle more, walk more, shop locally, bike or take public transportation rather than driving to work from time to time, there is sure to be a way you can make an alternate choice that puts our environment first.
Dare to live the life you’ve always wanted. Make 2018 the year to travel more! You’ll discover and see more of what the world has to offer and beauty of it. Where it’s exploring new hot spots right in your city or traveling overseas, each trip provides an eye opening experience.
Declutter Your Life
If you’re choosing to resolve to save more money in 2018, then you’re likely choosing new purchases carefully, but why not extend that to what you already own? A cluttered space and home can lead to a cluttered mind so starting your year off without the clutter is certain to help you keep your mind clear and focused on all the things you want to accomplish. Once you go through your space, you can sell or donate your unused and gently used items.
Spend More Time with Friends and Family
Anyone who knows Ale, knows that family is everything. Your loved ones are what keeps you going. Life is full of unexpected surprises and challenges so utilize your support system, that’s what they’re there for. Spending time with your family and friends can help melt away the cares and stresses of the world, help your relationships grow stronger and help you become a better person all around.
Spending time with your family and friends is one of the best ways to create memorable experiences. By carving out time in everyone’s schedules to eat dinner at the table, going to get coffee in the afternoon, drinks during happy hour or even outside activities like going on a hike you are bound to make memories your friends and family will remember and cherish for a lifetime.
