New Year, REnewed You!
Last week, I showcased some of my favorite ideas for getting your home off to a clean and organized start for the new year. But this week, ladies (and gents!), it’s all about YOU: renewing and rejuvenating yourself in 2014 and beyond.
Over the holidays, I thought a lot about my aspirational self for 2014…what could I be doing to become the best version of myself? I definitely have health and fitness goals…resolutions to lose weight or eat better or exercise more are almost obligatory when the new year rolls around!
But for me, the new year is as much about renewal as it is a fresh start. I don’t want a new me…I want a renewed and rejuvenated me! And that begins with being healthy inside and out.
If you’re looking for some great inspiration for a healthy lifestyle, definitely visit our New Year, REnewed You Pinterest board. I’ve pinned lots of tasty, healthy recipes and fitness tips to help you get on track to a healthier you.
Diet and exercise are certainly important, but the road to renewal doesn’t stop there. Taking care of ourselves also means taking the time to treat ourselves to a little TLC! When was the last time you did something indulgent for yourself? Whether it’s putting the kids to bed a little early and taking a long, hot bubble bath or spending an extra hour or two in your PJs and reading the paper on Saturday morning, the time you spend on yourself is never misspent!
Having a little “me” time is a fantastic stress reliever, and we all know that stress can wreak havoc on our physical, emotional, and mental health. But it’s not always easy to carve out that “me” time, and trips to the salon or spa can get pricey. Fortunately, it’s easy to pamper yourself at home with some DIY spa treatments! Homemade sugar scrubs and face masks may seem a little fussy, but I promise that you’ll be amazed by how indulgent it feels to pamper your skin at home. Check out the New Year, REnewed You Pinterest board for recipes and ideas to have a relaxing spa day at home.
