What New Year’s Resolutions Will You Promise Yourself?

new year, new career in the beauty industry

What is your resolution for 2018? Get fit? Get organized? Find a new job—maybe even a new career? Well what are you waiting for? Take a few positive steps right now.

Take care of yourself first. Getting fit is easier than you think and now is the best time to up your workout routine. Gyms usually offer great membership incentives in January so you can get fit for a discount. If you’re not gym material, check out online workout routine or DVDs you can watch on TV. Or go for a brisk walk before or after work. Even simple changes like choosing the stairs instead of the elevator or going for a bike ride instead of driving will help your overall health and fitness. And don’t forget to eat well. If you want to be the best you you can be, you need to consider the full picture.

Get your life organized. Start January off by cleaning out your closet. Chances are if you haven’t worn that hot pink cardigan in five years, this year isn’t going to be the year either. Donate your gently worn articles of clothing to people who might appreciate both your style and your generosity. Once you’ve simplified your wardrobe, go after old piles of makeup. Did you know that your makeup has a shelf life? Then, attack piles of paper. You don’t need bills from 2007!

Pursue your dream. You’ve always had a sense of style and you’re the go-to person when your friends need their hair and makeup done up right. Right? Then why not take a chance—on yourself? Pursue a career you love, not just a job you tolerate. If you’re serious about going to beauty school, take the next step. Research schools in your area and schedule a tour. Taking a tour is the best way to gauge if a school is right for you. For more tips to guide you in your school search, read these 6 Steps for Choosing the Right Cosmetology School. Then…
