With a new year brings a new set of New Year’s Resolutions! We all want to take steps to improving our lives — whether it’s drinking more water, getting on (and sticking to) that exercise regimen, or simply getting a good night’s sleep. But if the prospect of keeping to those resolutions seems daunting to you, here are some tools to help make your experience more pleasant and practical — so you can stay motivated.
THE GREAT GIFT GUIDE TO STICKING TO YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
DRINK MORE WATER
HydroPlus® Premium Water Ionizer NP9960i from novita
Household Department, B1
Did you know that the recommended daily intake of water is around 4 litres a day for men, and 3 litres a day for women? We cannot emphasise enough the importance of drinking enough water — it lowers blood pressure, gives you healthier skin and organs, and cushions your brain and nerves! If the taste of plain water isn’t too appealing, try infusing it with fresh fruits for added flavour and a vitamin boost.
Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35
Sports Department, Level 4
A sedentary lifestyle can wreck hell on our back and our health. If one of your resolutions is to tackle 10,000 steps a day, having a fitness tracker or pedometer can greatly help with motivation and progress. And if you’re hitting the gym or the track, a great new pair of shoes will not just make you look good – it will help give you the literal support you need to meet your goals!
THANN Aroma Diffusers
Interior Department, B1
It’s not just about the hours you clock, but the quality of your sleep that’s important. Invest in a good support pillow that holds your neck and spine in the right position to prevent shoulder and back aches — especially important if you already spend most of your day hunched over a desk or screen. Adding some mood lighting and aromatherapy can also help you relax and wind down after a long day.
BE MORE MINDFUL
Dragon Brand Royal Concentrated Bird’s Nest
Food Hall, B2
Treat your body right, and it will treat you right. Besides eating a balanced diet and getting the proper nutrition, try adding some extra supplements to your arsenal to boost your immunity and stave off the effects of aging. Modern studies have shown that Bird’s Nest is rich in epidermal growth factor, which is a substance responsible for skin and tissue repair. Traditional use even recommends the consumption of Bird’s Nest to ease asthma, improve digestion, and relieve fatigue!

One of the biggest reasons why we don’t follow through with our New Year’s Resolutions is that we lose sight of our goals along the way. Keep a gratitude journal to stay focused and keep track of positive progress. Give yourself a daily mantra to stay mindful about why you chose to make these changes in the first place – whether it’s to live with purpose, to overcome a challenge, or to exercise more self-love. Instead of trying to accomplish too much at once, try “mini milestones” instead, and always remember to celebrate the small wins!
