The Right Kind of Resolution

Posted on: December 12th, 2016

It’s that time of year again when New Year’s resolutions are all the hype. From gym memberships to beach bod goals, everyone is in search of the right resolution to make their upcoming year their best yet. This year, dig a little deeper and make some resolutions that will make you feel beautiful…on the inside! Beauty should not only be skin deep, so we have 6 New Year’s resolutions that have nothing to do with your appearance but will make you feel as beautiful as ever.

Stop Worrying What Other People Think

It may sound cliche but it’s important to embrace the skin you’re in and strut your stuff! You will never be able to control other people’s opinions but, you will drive yourself crazy trying. Self-loathing is too exhausting, so cut it out.

Give More Compliments

Does your coworker always seem to have the cutest shoes? TELL HER! It will make her day, and who knows maybe she will even spill all her hacks to finding cheap shoes.

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Have you ever heard the saying, “The grass is always greener on the other side?” This rings true to all realms of life. The next time you happen to be comparing yourself to others, take a step back and realize that people are probably comparing themselves to you too. So look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you are beautiful simply because you are YOU.

Give Back

One of the best ways to feel good about yourself is to make others feel good! Give back this year by lifting others up and volunteering! There are tons of volunteering opportunities in Rockford, Peru, and Sterling! Be a role model, check out the Girl Scouts of Central Illinois here and learn the different ways that you can influence someone’s life. You can give back to those who gave to our country by volunteering with the Veteran’s Drop-in Center in Rockford, visit their volunteer page to see how you can help. The Sterling YMCA helps bring people together and gives them the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Click here to learn how you can be a part of it all.

Laugh As Much As Possible

And we mean really laugh, the deep belly laughs that make you do that little snort that makes you laugh even harder. Something that is really important is the ability to laugh at yourself. Sure, tripping up the stairs on your way into the office was pretty embarrassing but you have to admit that it was a little funny too. Laugh it off and don’t let it ruin your day!

Learn Something New

Albert Einstein once said, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” Make a promise to yourself this year to expand your knowledge and skills. Do you have a niche for beauty and think that it’s something you’d like to learn more about? Check out our programs page to learn about getting an education in cosmetology.
