8 Must-Have Resolutions for 2018

“New year, who dis?”

SOS - the new year starts in just one short week, and you have yet to give your resolutions any thought!  This is pretty understandable, considering the billion and one other things you’ve been running around doing this holiday season. So let’s take a minute and focus on YOU. Now, I’m not usually a proponent of New Year’s Resolutions. If there’s something that you want to do, want to not do anymore, or want to improve upon, why wait to start? While you shouldn’t necessarily wait until the new year to evaluate your life (because it should kinda be a continual thing), I think it’s a great opportunity to reflect. Based on the past year, we can find places to punctuate the new year with a little growth. And it’s here anyway, so we might as well jump on the bandwagon and come up with a few resolutions! The following eight are ones that I think pertain to all of us!
1. Say thank you more
Gratitude is a powerful force to be reckoned with. Are there people in your life that have made a positive impact on you? Of course! And do these people know about the impact they’ve made? If not, make a priority to tell them! Check out one of my favorite Ted Talks if you need a little inspo.

2. Declutter
Decluttering always seems to be a goal when it comes to new beginnings. A fresh start can’t be fresh if there’s a ton of junk in the way! This new year, ask yourself where you can cut away some of the excess…including from your closet! Stay tuned for next week’s article for a little help with that 😉.

3. Educate yourself
Where do you get your news? Are you aware of what’s going on in the world? It’s easy to just rely on hear-say about important issues (#fakenews?), but this year, let’s focus on getting the facts and then coming up with our conclusions. Maybe this entails watching a variety of different news channels, or simply researching some stats. Either way, keeping ourselves informed should constantly be something we strive for!

4. Get scribbling
We don’t have to call it a diary…how about a journal? Or maybe just content that can be used for all the future books people will write about your legacy 😉? Regardless of what you call it, writing down your thoughts is known to be extremely cathartic. I’ve been writing in a “One Line a Day” journal for four years now, and it’s a practice I’m so grateful that I started. 10/10 would recommend to a friend (aka – you).

5. Revamp your savings plan
Saving money is a hard thing to do when there are so many immediate expenses to be met. But let’s be real, no matter how much you save now, you can always save more. Whether it’s the classic tactic of cutting out your daily Starbucks a few times a week, or setting aside a larger portion of your income to go directly into your savings account – reassessing and revamping your savings plan will have you thanking yourself before 2019 rolls around!

6. Make more phone calls
Especially to people you haven’t reached out to in a while! Reconnecting with friends and family through a good, old fashioned phone call is not only refreshing, but also a mildly more meaningful than commenting on their Facebook pic 😉. If this resolution seems challenging to you, that’s all the more reason to do it!

7. Wear more Anjé
This one shouldn’t be too hard to follow through on! With our new styles making a second debut real soon, there’s so much Anjé to love! This year keep on keeping it simple while you stay cozy and chic in your favorite Anjé pieces! Looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve outfit? Check out our classy, yet sexy Cutout Dress!
8. Be kinder to yourself
This year, let’s take #treatyourself to a whole new level! Here at Anjé, we’ve been starting a self-love revolution that we only want to get bigger and better in 2018. Take that bubble bath, be your own cheerleader, and forgive yourself for your shortcomings. Besides, being kind to yourself makes it a whole lot easier to be kind to everyone else.


May 2018 be your year…Cheers!
