“New Year, new you”; we must have all heard that saying a hundred times by now! There’s something about the New Year that makes us all want to sort out our lives, whether that’s taking up a gym membership, cutting out bad habits or braving that trend we’ve been eyeing up for months but are just too scared to try.
To help you get 2018 off to a flying start, here at Moda in Pelle we’re talking through some of the most common and most useful New Year’s resolutions — alongside advice on how to make this year the year they actually happen!
The Resolution: Get Fit
Getting fit is basically a given on most people’s New Year resolutions list! The key thing with getting fit is to not look at it as a New Years resolution — this gives the idea of a temporary fix that will probably be forgotten come February, rather than an all-around lifestyle change.
If you want to get fit and stay fit throughout 2018, you need to consider the year as an overall. Set yourself goals for six months down the line that will ensure your good intentions don’t fizzle out after a few weeks — for example, signing up for a 5 or 10k run in the summer. This will give you a clear goal to work towards and ensure your resolution isn’t left behind after a few tough gym sessions!
The Shoes: Trainers
However you’re getting fit, whether it’s signing up to the gym or heading out on a run, trainers are an absolute must. For serious runs or gym sessions, make sure you’re fully supported with specialist running shoes. For lighter exercise, for example, yoga or pilates, make an impression with beautiful fashion trainers from Moda in Pelle. From embellished white trainers to eye-catching metallic options, you can discover the perfect trainers to give your workout ensemble a fashion-forward edge.
The Resolution: Get Organised At Work
Getting organised at work will allow you to think more clearly, be more productive and, quite simply, get more done! Follow these top tips to ensure you get the most out of your work week:
- Organise your space. Messy desk, messy mind! Cut your papers, stationery and accessories down to a minimum — you’ll be amazed at just how much a declutter can help.
- Plan your week. These days, we’re all snowed under with technology. Appointments are arranged through emails and online calendars, and it can sometimes be hard to keep on top of everything. Buy yourself a diary or desk planner with a clear week-by-week view — having everything written down in one place will go a long way in helping you keep your week organised and productive.
- Make the most of your commute. Rather than sitting for half an hour staring out of a train window, use your commute to clear away some basic tasks. Catch up on your emails, and make a rough to-do list so that by the time you arrive at work you’re ready to hit the ground running.
The Shoes: Office Friendly Heels
If you’re on the lookout for new office wear to match your new attitude, look no further than a classic pair of black mid heel shoes. These are versatile, comfortable and professional, ensuring you always look at the top of your game — even when you don’t quite feel it!
The Resolution: See The World
Travel really is one of the best things you can do, so if at all possible, use 2018 to start seeing the world! Whether you save for a big summer getaway, indulge in some European city breaks or even just begin exploring the good old UK, make sure this is the year you get out and about and live life to the full!
Begin saving a small amount each month, starting from January, and by summer you should easily have enough to book a relaxing trip away. If you’re on a budget, keep an eye out for last minute deals — you never know all the amazing new places you could discover!
The Shoes: Practical Flats and Summer Sandals
Wherever your destination, comfortable footwear is vital for a trip away. If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on a beach or pool holiday, opt for pretty summer sandals. For something a little more urban, such as exploring a new city, choose a pair of simple ballerina shoes that will keep you looking and feeling both comfortable and stylish all day long.
