A new year signals a fresh start and the opportunity to evaluate past achievements and ponder future goals. From wardrobe updates to health tips, we’re starting the year as we mean to go on.
1. Layer up
Despite Christmas having been and gone, the cold weather is likely to stick around for some time yet. Make sure you’re prepared for outdoor chills (and overheated offices) with accessories you can layer with ease.
Our fun accessories take you from day to night, eliminating the stress of a complete outfit change. Metallic tones will brighten up those January blues and put a spring in your step, while tactile textures add an instantly cosy feel.
2. Tune in to: In Good Company
In Good Company, hosted by Otegha Uwagba, is a monthly podcast brimming with fresh ideas, practical advice and interviews with successful and inspiring women. Previous topics include freelancing with Serena Guen, CEO of multimedia travel brand SUITCASE, and business 101 with Lana Elie, founder of e-florist Floom.
If you’re thinking of re-evaluating your career prospects or realigning your goals, these podcasts are just the ticket to get you ready for a change.
Or, if you’re looking to take a step back this year and slow things down, try Headspace. This meditation platform provides guided sessions, as well as mindfulness training.
3. Get active
A healthier lifestyle has to be the most popular new year’s resolution around. A close second? Trying new things. Why not combine both and explore the latest exercise trends taking over your city?
Barrecore is all about using a combination of the ballet barre, lightweight props, your own body weight and high repetitions to target and tone all of the major muscle groups. With studios spanning Bristol to Harrogate, these classes are great for working your arms, thighs, and core.
If you want something more active and work better in a team, try F45 Training. The 45-minute high-intensity workout boasts a cult following in Australia and includes both strength work and cardio. With over 4,5000 exercise combinations, you’ll never be bored!
