It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly halfway through the first month of 2022! I love taking the first month of the year to think about what is important to me, to make goals for the next year, improve habits and to prioritize my health. Since so many of us are proactively working on our goals, resolutions and intentions for the year, I wanted to share a few products that might be helpful in helping you reach your full potential!
When it comes to setting new goals and intentions, I think it’s so important to figure out your “why?” and “how?” to your goals. Figuring out why these goals are so important to you can be a major motivator to help you succeed. Small changes can lead to big results when it comes to your health and self-care. Taking the time to make a plan to help you succeed through an actionable plan is 100% one of the key pieces to a successful goal and/or resolution. As they say, “A goal without a plan is just a wish,” so give yourself ample time to really sit down, look deep and find a way to help you stay on track and reach goal milestones.
The right products can be a game changer with helping to stay on track and make smashing those goals easier as well. Keep reading below for a few products that can be super helpful for new goals and resolutions.
Focus on Nutrition
Many people take the start of the new year to be more mindful of the foods and supplements that they fuel their body with. One of my major goals this year is to work on eating a more balanced and nutritious diet. Shaklee and a leading natural nutrition company and some of their products have been really helpful in helping me meet my nutritional goals. I’ve started to use Shaklee Life Shake and Collagen-9 in my morning smoothies for a boost of nutritional goodness. Life Shake is so convenient to use and provides me with a healthy, complete meal with 20 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, 24 essential vitamins and minerals*. It’s great for those that are interested in non-GMO products (it’s also vegan and gluten-free). Most mornings I add a scoop of Collagen-9 too. Collagen-9 is a collagen product that has 9 essential amino acids required by the body to support protein synthesis. Collagen is a wonderful supplement to add to your routine as it helps support healthy hair, skin, nail and joints.
Journaling has been gaining popularity the last few years. Whether you’re wanting to begin a gratitude practice of writing things you’re grateful for daily, tracking your moods or workouts or simply getting your thoughts on paper through writing or doodling, journaling can have immense stress-reducing and mental health boosting benefits. When it comes to writing and drawing, having great tools and options can be a great motivator. I absolutely love Zebra Pen. The Journaling Set includes Sarasa Clip Gel pens and Mildliner Highlighters in numerous colors. It’s such a fun pack to reach for when color-coding my goals, writing my daily lists and filling in my mood and gratitude journal. The colors in the set are color coordinated (each pen has a corresponding mild-color highlighting pen) which I adore. The smudge-free pens are an absolute must for me (seriously nothing worst than smearing pens) and the colors don’t bleed either. The set has everything you need to get creative and stay organized this year!
Eat More Veggies
I feel like eating more vegetables and fruit is something that many of us are always striving to improve. When it comes to fruits and veggies, not all are created equal. Beets have quickly become an obsession among many due to the health benefits that they have. Beets are packed with vitamins and minerals associated with lowering blood pressure, fighting inflammation, increased stamina, detoxification support, boosting immunity, and much more! If you want to get in on the beet trend, Beetology makes it super easy and convenient.
Beetology offers 5 different flavors of their 100% organic cold-pressed juice. At under 100 calories per bottle, these juices are a simple way to add a bit extra wellness into your everyday routine. Made with all natural ingredients, no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, simply pour and enjoy! I love the Beetology Beet and Veggie for a really easy way to get some extra veggies into my diet. The blend of beets, green apples, carrot, kale and celery has the perfect mild sweet flavor.
Make Skin Care A Priority
I love skin care, but I have a confession. I focus on my face and often neglect the rest of my body.
This year I’m putting focus on all my skin, especially on hydrating my poor dry arms and legs. To help motivate a bit, I added deliciously scented Tree Hut’s Vitamin C Whipped Body Butter to my after bath/shower routine! This whipped body butter leaves my skin feeling to smooth, hydrated and glowing. Packed with vitamin C to brighten skin appearance, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) for fresher tone and texture and natural Shea Butter to deeply nourish and moisturize. It’s a simple addition to my self-care routine that feels like a decadent treat to myself.
January always feels like a great time to start with a clean slate. The holiday months leading up to the new years can be filled with lots of over-indulging on food and alcohol. Many love to take the month of January to hit pause on drinking. If you’re tackling Dry January but still want to enjoy a delicious drink alcohol-free, Monday Gin is here to help you cheers with delicious drinks. Monday Zero Alcohol Gin is completely booze free, but with a delicious flavor profile – you won’t even miss the alcohol! The bold, aromatic blend of juniper, natural botanicals, citrus and spices will remind you of the classic London Dry spirit with 0 calories, no carbs, zero sugar so you can indulge without having to feel like you’re missing out. I love making a mocktail to enjoy in the evening with my hubby without worrying about feeling tired or foggy the next morning.
