Christmas is rapidly approaching, and because of that, our minds could be wandering to the new year on the horizon. January just oozes possibility, don’t you think? A chance to set the reset button and start as you mean to go on. Of course, many people choose to use this time to make some all-important new year’s resolutions. Perhaps changing things in their lifestyle, personally, or hoping to improve their lives in some way. I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you what is considered to be some of the most popular changes women want to make, perhaps you’re even considering one or two of these yourself.

Losing weight

Weight loss and January seem to go hand in hand. I happen to think that losing a few pounds or losing weight for health reasons is one of the most popular new year’s resolutions most women will make. January sees a surge in gym memberships being taken out and diet subscriptions or books being purchased. No one said losing weight was going to be easy, which is why it comes as no surprise to find that some people opt to undergo procedures such as abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck), in the hopes of flattening and shaping the abdomen. Whatever way you choose to get rid of the weight, be sure you are doing it for the right reasons.

Try and remember that results won’t happen quickly, and it is much better to focus on a sustainable way of losing weight.

Cosmetic enhancements

On the subject of surgery, would it surprise you to believe that many people consider the new year as a perfect time for cosmetic enhancements? Things like facelifts, nose surgery or even breast enhancements or reductions are high on the new year wish list for many women. Sometimes these things need to be explored, especially if it is making you feel self-conscious or affecting your confidence and self-esteem. Just make sure research is done in advance before any decisions are made.

Their mindset

Mindset is another thing some women want to pay attention to in the new year. That might be trying to improve their thought process by thinking positively and ridding themselves of the negative criticism. Or maybe it’s more about creating some headspace through gentle meditation or taking up something like yoga. Our minds are powerful tools, and when used in the right way can have a huge impact on our lives. So it’s understandable that many women want to try and improve their well-being in some way.

A change in career or job prospects

The rise of the career woman is not going anywhere, so it’s a huge possibility that many women are placing their new year focus purely on getting ahead in their job and career. With promotions up for grabs or even a new career path to take, the new year can fill you with plenty of motivation to succeed.

Setting goals for the future

Finally, setting yourself goals is actually a great thing to do in life. It provides you with purpose and a sense of achievement once they are fulfilled. So use this time of year wisely and set yourself some positive changes and resolutions for 2017.
