How to achieve your New Year resolutions

Are you determined to exercise more, eat better food, ditch plastic or just be a bit more positive this year? We can help you hit those goals in 2020…

Get motivated

Nothing prepares your for a new year gym trip quite like some new gear. The right kit will help you perform better, feel more comfortable and look the part too.
We love the amazing range of trainers, bags, sportswear and accessories at Next. These gorgeous high-waisted control legging are only £25 and will make you feel like a pro at your new crossfit class (whatever that is).

Be more positive

If this year is more about improving your mental, rather than physical health, why not focus on mindfulness?

This gorgeous ‘Gratitude Journal’ from Oliver Bonas allows you to scribble down any thoughts, feelings and inspirations, and practice daily gratitude that will help you be more present in the moment.

Plastic-free packaging

Make 2020 a year of green-living and ditch single-use plastic for good.

Lush have a whole array of packaging-free and refillable beauty products including shower gel, shampoo & conditioner, cleansers, foundation and lipstick, so you can say goodbye to all those single-use plastic bottles.

Plus, they all feature natural products and essential oils which smell absolutely incredible.

Not-so dry January

Have a break from the booze this January and, trust us, you’ll feel a whole lot better for it.

The ISH range of drinks at Holland & Barrett are a fabulous alcohol-free, yet grown-up option, for those saying ‘no’ to the sauce. We love their tasty botanical Ginish – simply serve with tonic, ice and a slither of cucumber.

You glow girl

Drinking more water, eating better and getting more sleep will all help the appearance of your skin, but if you really want to get that radiant glow you need to take a look at your skin regime.

Neal’s Yard Remedies offer all kinds of solutions for different skin issues, just pop in and find out which products are best for you. We love their facial oils – perfect for battling wind and cold battered skin.

Meat-free marvels

If you’ve vowed to eat no (or less) meat this year, there are plenty of delicious veggie and vegan meals at Princesshay.

Dishes that need to be sampled are the Beyond Meat burger at Byron,  a comforting bowl of Jackfruit Curry at Giraffe and don’t forget to try out Green Wednesdays at Yo!, when all their green veggie plates are set at £2.50.

Grab a green juice

Determined to hit your daily count of five fruit and veg? Freshly squeezed juice is a brilliant way to get a whole load of vitamins in one delicious glass.

We love the Wagamama range of juices, especially their tasty ‘power’ juice with spinach, apple and fresh ginger. Don’t forget they also do a free cleansing Green Tea with all their meals – just request one when you order.
