New Year’s Resolutions That Are Easy To Keep

resolutions 2
Happy 2016 from everyone here at Sask Optics! How are your New Year’s resolutions going? It’s hard to break old habits or make new ones, which is what resolutions are all about. But if we can all just stick to one new habit, let’s choose not to be so hard on ourselves.

Why we’re bad at New Year’s resolutions

Most resolutions fail because they’re just too difficult. Getting fit is a prime example. Vowing to get up early for a five-mile run three times a week seems perfectly do-able from the comfort of your armchair. It’s a totally different story at 6am in the dark with rain thundering down outside.

Be nicer to yourself

So, instead of setting yourself up to fail, try making your goals easier to achieve. If you need to lose weight, try switching to smaller portions rather than cutting out your favourite foods altogether. If you’re out of shape, start small; getting into the habit of regular exercise is more important than the activity or intensity – do something you enjoy.

Most of all, remember you’re only human. We all fall off the wagon when we’re tired, fed up or tempted. The main thing is not to give up, and forgive yourself if you make a mistake. Accepting you’re not going to be perfect will help get back on track when you inevitably slip up.

Easy ways to a new you

If you want to be a better you this year, your eyes are a good place to start. If you’ve been wearing glasses for a while, you could be stuck in a rut. Do your glasses suit your lifestyle and your personality? And, are you sure your prescription still meets your needs?

Why not book an eye test? Or make an eyewear makeover your New Year’s resolution. We have a brilliant choice of designer frames in store. You’re welcome to pop in to browse, enjoy a coffee, and get our expert advice.

Whatever you have planned for 2015, we wish you every success, and look forward to seeing you soon.
