Tips for making and achieving your ‘New year, new you’ goals

Whether you tie it to the calendar year, the lunar year or the fiscal year, it’s never a bad time to embrace the saying: New year, new you.

As we jump into 2023, we may have some lofty goals about how to leave the old year behind (good riddance!) and make the new year the one where we really change our lifestyle. This is the year where we make those healthy habits stick, right?

We’ve got some advice for all of you on the “new year, new you” mission: Slow your roll.


Huh?

That’s right, slow down. One reason many people fail at “new year, new you” resolutions or major life changes is that they take on too much at once by adopting huge, life-changing goals. Instead, start with small changes that are more achievable.

This will allow you to record some early wins and build on those small successes until the larger goals are well within reach. Once you feel like you’ve mastered the first one, raise the bar and add something new.

Just make sure you give yourself enough time to really make it a habit. Here are some realistic goals to start with and tips for making them stick.


New year, new me:

Make hydration a priority! Water makes up more than half of your body weight, and without the right amount, your body can’t work its best. Good hydration supports the body’s immune system, helps skin health, keeps our mind sharp and our days productive.

Every day, the average person should drink between 72 and 96 oz. of water – or roughly 2-3 liters, more if you’re exercising heavily. It may sound easy, but if you’re focused on work or other projects for much of the day, it can be challenging.


TIPS:

•Get yourself a high quality, reusable water bottle that you take with you wherever you go. Fill it up and take a sip at every opportunity.

•Set alarms on your phone or use a hydration-boosting app to remind you to keep on swigging. Many fitness or weight management apps also have a water tracking feature.


New year, new me: Start a real skin care routine

It’s never too early or too late to start a skin care routine. And it may benefit more than just your skin. Making time to pamper your skin is a form of self-care that is needed right now. It’s also something you can control.

Maybe you’ve been haphazard with your skin care—sleeping with makeup, skipping moisturizer, only exfoliating when you get a mask as a gift. It’s time to ramp it up and give your skin the attention it deserves.


TIPS:

•Find a product line you like and follow its recommendations. These products were designed by experts to work in combination with each other, like the Artistry Skin Nutrition™ Renewing and Firming Line with Repair Complex that features a cleanser, toner and moisturizer that’s meant to firm and repair dry and/or aging skin.

•Develop a morning and evening routine, like the Artistry™ 4-Step Regimen of cleansing, toning, treating and moisturizing. (What’s “treating”? See next tip.)

•Find your serum to treat your skin for extra care. Thanks to scientific research, you can give your skin much more than a splash of water and a bit of moisturizer. Whether you want to address wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, hydration, or firming, you can use the Artistry Skin Nutrition Vitamin C + HA3 Daily Serum for your needs.

•Don’t forget the sunscreen! Even in the winter and on cloudy days, protecting your skin from UVB/UBA sun rays is an important step in any skin care routine.


New year, new me: Start taking your vitamins

A healthy diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables is the best way to give your body the nutrients it needs each day. But this is the real world and we know that not everyone is consuming the recommended 5-9 daily servings.Until you are able to make that lifestyle change, start filling those nutritional gaps with a daily vitamin and supplement routine. Start with a multivitamin like NUTRILITE™ Daily Tablet or Next Gen Double X™ 31 Day Supply Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient Supplement. They both offer multiple essential vitamins and minerals as well as phytonutrients to help give your body the foundational nutrients it needs and beyond.


TIPS:

•Make taking your vitamins easy to remember by incorporating them into daily routine, like drinking coffee, brushing your teeth or eating breakfast.

•Keep the bottles visible as a daily reminder rather than stashed in a cupboard.

•Set alarms on your phone or smart watch to remind you to take them or download an app that includes tracking your daily vitamins.

•If you’re taking multiple vitamins each day, set them up in a pill box with compartments for every day of the week and keep it in a visible location.


Keep going

These are just a few new healthy habits to start integrating into your life. Once you feel you’ve mastered one, add another and just keep working.

Take that first step, and then the next one, and then the next one and before you know it, you’ll be living the new, healthy life you want for yourself and realizing your goal of a “new year, new you!”
