The Fresh Perspective...

Freshair Boutique

Expectations.

Here we are again, new year, new everything. Everyone’s setting new goals to make this year better than the last. I’m all for improving yourself but why do we need a change of calendar to set these goals for ourselves?

December is inevitably an intense month. We socialize, eat and spend more than we do any of time of the year. As lovely as it can be, it usually comes with a lot of extra stress, pounds and an empty bank account. What better motivation to do better? It’s understandable that January would be a time to redeem ourselves and work on feeling better.

But resolutions can come with their own set of stress. We all set these huge goals for ourselves right after we’ve indulged, instead of constantly trying to improve ourselves year round. It can be really challenging to make these big epic changes, especially after a month of indulgences.

Starting a new year can feel like the best time for a fresh start but the reality is, you’re still the same person you were December 31st. Change takes time and baby steps. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself to carry through with big goals. Try setting small goals gradually that might lead to a bigger lifestyle change or personal accomplishment. Focus on a goal but aim smaller and strive to continuously chip away at each step you need to get there.

New Year, New You?

Welcome back! We've started a New Year and we want to know how you feel! There always seems to be so much pressure when a New Year starts. What types of resolutions do you make? Do you make any at all?

Some say starting the year off with high expectations or too many resolutions is setting yourself for failure or disappointment, which is a little depressing I guess. What if we make one goal. Let's ask our stylists for some inspo!

What are some of our New Year Resolutions.

Kitty: “1. More meditation 2. More self care/down time 3. Learning to say no and not feel guilty.”

Olivia: “Don’t do resolutions. If you want to change something, start now! As soon as you’re putting it off, you’re making your first excuse.”

Leah: “Start an Etsy shop!”

Niasha: “Money management! Consolidate, budget, save, invest.”

Kiah: “Sit down with Olivia so that she can show me how to properly budget and not spend all of my money on clothes.”

Danika: “Taking better care of myself, even if it feels selfish :)”

Chelsea: “Focus on self-improvement/self-care. Make monthly goals and limit technology use - live in the moment!”

Praise: “New Years are like brand new days - a chance to be better than you were the day/year before. That being said, we shouldn’t wait for the New Year to improve. Strive daily!”

Well, there you have it. Some ideas, or some advice* (*Olivia). Just don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re human, you’re great & you’ve already accomplished so much!

We are excited to be back open after some wonderful holidays. See you at the salon soon!
