If you’re like me, and a whole lot of people around the world, the upcoming New Year presents us with the age-old tradition of making New Year’s resolutions.That most likely, we’ll fail on. As my dad always said, the road to Hades is paved with good intentions! We make these resolutions to help us reach goals, improve our health or better our lives. For me, it’s usually a combination of resolutions that I made (and failed to keep) from last year and some new ones to make me feel better about failing last year. According to ‘Discover Happy Habits,’ popular resolutions are eating healthier, exercising more, or losing weight. Saving money follows health. For 2022, they surveyed a bunch of people and here are their findings: resolution goals for 2022 are living healthier (23%), personal improvement and happiness (21%), and losing weight (20%)
On their website, they have anastounding fact:
I know what my problem is; I make my goals pretty much unachievable:try to do too much with unrealistic goals and lack follow-through.
So, for this year, I’m making some adjustments; making my resolutions realistic. I want to exercise more, (or in my case, just start!). I’m not joining a gym but walking every day. Eating healthier is easy, I just need to eat at home and avoid fast food whenever I can. And let’s get real, I want to feel better about myself. All the healthy stuff is important, but I know for me, there’s no shame in taking a short-cut to looking better – looking younger!
There’s a zillion articles on Google about the real link between looking good and feeling good. And yes, I’m sure everyone has heard the cliché that beauty is only skin-deep. Well, skin-deep is a good start for me! I know I won’t go to the gym 3 or 4 times a week. I know that every meal I eat won’t be healthy. I also know that for a few dollars, I can turn back time on wrinkles, age spots and improve some of my facial and body features. But part of changing my New Year’s Resolution behavior is making realistic goals.
If I start to look good, I’ll start to feel good. And the better I feel, the more I’ll want to do and accomplish– even exercise! I’m not talking about face lifts or surgery: too expensive and too painful. There are a lot of procedures and treatments that have great results with little to no downtime. If you want to improve your appearance, which I do, neurotoxins, fillers and chemical peels are a good start. Getting into laser or radio frequency treatments also helps.
Go on Google and search for triLift or SmoothGlo. Incredible results! I mean, there is just about everything for everyone. I’m going to get rid of my hairy back and arms with laser hair removal. My favorite medical spa also offers sexual wellness services to help you get your spring back in the sack!
Here’s my 2023 New Year’s Resolutions: look younger, feel better about myself, and be kind to people I meet. For me, it starts by talking with the experts at a real medical spa, not a pop-up shop, and seeing what they recommend. With 3 or 4 months’ worth of treatments, eating healthier and walking, I’ll be a much better version of my current self.
Follow along to see my progress! I wish you all a very joyous and healthy New Year!
