So what are the most common New Year’s resolutions?
According to usa.gov, drinking less alcohol, eating healthy food, getting fit and losing weight, saving money, managing stress and quitting smoking are at the top of the list. Now think about the underlying reasons as to why people want to make these changes. People want to feel better inside and out. They want to improve their appearance and health. These things seem easy enough to follow through, but most people give up without seeing results. Why?
Even a simple goal like losing weight involves any number of habit changes, however, trying to do more than one thing reduces your chance of doing any of them at all. Picking one simple habit change and sticking with it and ignoring all other efforts to change guarantees the best chance of succeeding in the final goal. It therefore makes sense to choose the one method that will have the most impact and be the easiest to do.
The key is to make any goal a habit first.
- Only stop smoking that single cigarette you have every morning after breakfast instead of going cold turkey.
- Start substituting that 1 daily morning pastry for a banana instead of trying to completely change your diet all at once.
- Every evening after work, go for a 2-3 minute run or walk around the block. A healthy rate of weight loss is about ½ to 2 pounds per week.

A spa membership is a good place to start because it will get you into the routine by setting a certain number of treatments per month.

Benefits of a Spa Membership
Facials: The effects a bad eating habits, not enough water intake, drinking alcohol in excess and smoking really take a toll on your skin. Eating foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients, especially vitamins A and C, will help improve the condition of your skin. Drinking more water and drinking less alcohol will keep the body more hydrated, which in turn will keep your skin moisturized and reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. A monthly facial, paired with eating better, will help reduce the looks of lines, wrinkles and help replenish dry and tired skin. Facials deep cleanse the skin to remove dirt and toxins and also deeply moisturize your skin. Facials can also be specifically customized to target aging, acne and hyperpigmentation concerns.
Massages: Massages increase blood flow and decrease stress levels. Massage also promotes lymphatic drainage which will aid in elimination the of body toxins. Receiving a body massage right after your workout can also help your muscles in the recovery process. When you work out, your muscles become tightly constricted, creating a lot of tension. A post workout massage helps your muscles release this tension and helps them get back to their normal state. Constantly tight muscles can ultimately lead to discomfort in different parts of your body. This pain can increase overtime and can lead to serious injury. Physical benefits are not the only benefits of massage. It also has plenty of psychological benefits. For instance, you probably know that a strenuous workout takes a lot of effort and energy. Having a reward at the end of your hard work keeps you motivated for regular exercise. A body massage can also relieve stress. As a result, you feel more relaxed and are able to think more clearly. A massage also improves the quality of your sleep.
