Make 2016 the Year of YOU!
Realistic Resolutions for Busy Moms
The New Year is upon us and that means resolutions and the pledge to make changes in our lives. For busy working moms, the top of the list usually includes organizing the household or other family-focused goals and taking care of mom falls to the bottom. Here are 5 resolutions for working moms to make themselves a priority this year:
Make one makeup change
Whether you try a new type of foundation, start finally using a primer or just try a new lipstick color, this is the year to make at least one change to your makeup routine. If you usually wear lipstick, try switching to a lip gloss and vice versa or if your eye shadow is always in the neutral family, try wearing blue, green or purple. The look will be fresh and fun for the New Year!
Update your skincare
The New Year is the right time to seriously look at your skin care routine. During the year ignoring skin care concerns is easy to do, so now is the time to really pay attention. Take an in-depth look at your skin care needs; do you see new wrinkles that need to be treated? Is your skin looking dull and dry? As women age and have more life demands (work stress, caring for elderly parents, taking care of their families), the stressors can take a toll on the skin. If your skin is dull, add in exfoliating products. If you notice new wrinkles, look for products that have peptides to help reduce their appearance. Whatever your concern might be, vow to use at least one new product to help your skin.
Try a new fragrance
It is a known fact that fragrance is closely tied to memories. Make this the best year yet by finding a new fragrance that you love. A new scent can change your mood and outlook on life and there is no easier way to make an impact on your well-being! You might even find a scent that motivates you at work, another that calms you down at home, or the best yet, one that makes you feel sexy for date night!
Pamper yourself daily
Going to the spa might be something that you fantasize about, but why not indulge a little every single day? Try adding an aromatic body scrub to your daily shower routine followed by a luxurious body oil for silky, soft skin. These options take virtually no extra time but will leave you feeling relaxed and beautiful.
Explore your dreams
Having both a family and career can be incredibly demanding and rewarding, especially if you love what you do. Obviously, you will love your family, but do you love your job? Does your job allow you to grow, meet new colleagues or reward your hard work? Do you love your industry? If the answer is no, this might be the year to explore opportunities to help fulfill your dreams.
