For most people, a new year means a fresh start, an opportunity to bury the past and do all those things that were left pending last year to improve our lives.
We tend to look back at 2022 and think of everything we would like to change or drastically avoid.
Having a better skincare routine, eating a cleaner diet, adding new vitamins to your nutrition, or increasing the daily steps are one of the many resolutions that a lot of people set up at the beginning of the year. These goals don’t have to be huge or life-changing, rather, they should be small daily habits that you can incorporate into your routine.
Taking care of your body is an essential part of your well-being that will immediately impact your productivity, relationships in your life, and overall health.
Having said that, let’s go through some easy steps that will help you achieve a better version of yourself this 2023.
1. The 80-20 rule
When it comes to eating healthy, having a cold turkey approach is never the solution. That’s why this 80-20 rule is very recommended when changing our nutrition habits but with not too many restrictions.
Let 80% of your diet consist of plant-based and natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, spices, nuts, seeds, whole grains, beans, and oils, and the 20% of your diet can be whatever you want and whatever you crave: donuts, chips, chocolate…
This rule does not focus on diets or restrictions but on choosing more foods that give happiness and energy to your body and mind.
2. Stay Active
Being active does not mean going on a 10 km run every single day. However, it is essential to move your body a bit each day, whether that means parking your car a bit further from your house, taking the stairs once a day instead of the elevator, taking your dogs on long walks, or meeting up with a friend to hike together.
You can also set a minimum amount of daily steps that you should take before the end of the day. There are many apps that keep track of your activity levels, and it is really easy to become a fun challenge for yourself.
3. Get enough hours of sleep.
In order to live a healthier and balanced life, in addition to a good diet and regular exercise, it is important to sleep well. And it does not only mean sleeping a solid seven, eight, or ten hours, but also that the time we sleep should provide you with quality rest.
Ideally, you should sleep between 7 and 9 hours a day and always go to sleep and wake up at the same time. It is also important that you turn off all screens 30 minutes before going to sleep and that, when the alarm clock goes off, you do your best not to snooze it. These small changes in your sleep will make a huge difference in the quality of your lifestyle that will allow you to have a day full of energy.
4. Improve your daily skincare routine
It is said that your skin is a reflection of yourself, your lifestyle, and your wellness. Stress, pollution, anxiety, and many other factors can contribute to a tired, unhealthy-looking face. Tailored and high-quality skincare is essential to maintain the glow of your skin by consistently using natural ingredients and clean formulas and taking care of it every single day, at least in the morning and before you go to sleep.
Taking care of yourself is something that needs to be a priority every day. Nourishing your body, mind, and soul is essential to living a happy, healthy, and resilient life.
Treating ourselves to beauty or cosmetic treatments every now and then, having a nice meal, and buying new pair of shoes can also be a way of self-care.
Plus, these ways of taking care of yourself will help you feel more confident.

To sum up, remember that these resolutions should not be perfect from day one. You will fail once, twice, or even more…. And that’s totally fine! Don’t get overwhelmed or anxious if you don’t reach every single goal, at least you are trying, and this is a marathon, not a sprint.
