What is it about Xmas and January, one minute it’s feast the next it’s talk of famine!
We could use resolutions to give us positive feelings, instead of going on the guilt trip, driven by media frenzy.
If I want to look good – I have to feel good inside first. This happens from simple things like eight hours sleep, healthy nutritious meals, less alcohol and appreciating life. Positive thinking really helps, giving myself a compliment now and then and being grateful for being healthy. I try and learn from each year’s experiences and then the end of year review becomes the driver for positive thinking.
When clothes shopping – my ‘learn from experience’ rules also apply. Try to ensure you only buy clothes that flatter you and make you feel good in terms of colour and fit. Appreciate quality in terms of style, cloth and construction, as it could mean that fashion company has good ethics too. Try not to overspend as debt hangovers feel bad, but good choices should still make you feel good a year later. Just make sure your excellent find fits properly.
Happy 2016, Maggi
