With the arrival of January 1st, the inevitable New Year, new me hashtags are once again coming out in full force. You make the same old “new” promises to yourself that you did last year, knowing very well that once the daily routine kicks in, you’re very unlikely to keep them. Except this year, with a little bit more motivation, and the help of these on-demand services, you actually might.
1. ONE STEP AT A TIME
First of all, make your resolutions realistic. A realistic resolution will not only be easier to make into a habit, but also to maintain as a lifestyle. So start small and build on that. If you’re planning to quit a bad habit, don’t quit cold turkey, instead, reduce gradually. If you’re planning to achieve an ambitious weight loss goal, don’t plunge into a 5-day a week gym routine, start with 2 days a week and increase gradually. Moderation is the key to long-term sustainable results.
For those that want to detox this January, signing up to a detox juice programme has never been easier. Try our favourite 3-day juice cleanse programme from Plenish, which can be specifically tailored to your needs. Plenish delivers right to your door, so all you have to do is open the box and drink up.
3. BE ACTIVE
Want to try personal training but have no time to go to the gym? TruBe has you covered with their easy to use app, which brings expert trainers to your home. With exercises ranging from yoga and boxing to Pilates, and appointments that fit your schedule, it’s hard to find an excuse not to get in shape.
4. RECOVER AND REJUVENATE
Being more calm and relaxed will improve your overall health and concentration and can help prevent things like depression, and chronic fatigue. One way to get a regular dose of endorphins, “the feel good hormones” which fight off stress, is to get a regular massage.
