Can you believe the year is almost over? It’s about to be that time of year again to make new year resolutions that can improve our habits, appearance, and health. These 5 self-reinvention tips can help you ease into the new year as a better person. If you can achieve inner balance and outer radiance with these tricks, then you’ll easily have 2019 in the bag.

Change your mindset

The first thing that you to do to jumpstart this whole process is to alter your mindset. Accept the fact that some changes, however drastic or subtle they may be, are required so you can be a better version of yourself in 2019. Take time to reflect on the things you want to improve, things to leave behind, or things you want to learn in the coming year. To help you re-shape the way you think, you can try reading self-help books, listening to podcasts, or watching Ted Talks.

Focus on overall well-being

Once you’ve mentally prepared yourself for your reinvention, time to put it into action starting with your well-being. It covers all aspects of your life including physical health, mental health, spirituality, social well-being, financial stability, life satisfaction, and more. You might not be able to improve all facets on the get-go, but you should strive to achieve balance. Perhaps, start slowly with improving your diet or jotting down your thoughts in a journal.

Get fit and get strong

This can also tie up with the tip above; maintaining your fitness can help greatly in improving your physical and mental health. To make working out more exciting, try going to the gym with your buddies or family members who can make keeping track of progress easier. Also, register for group classes, like body pump, yoga, cycling, or Zumba. Lastly, switch up your boring gym clothes to trendy sportswear from popular brands like Nike, adidas, Cotton On, and more to really amp up your motivation.

Outer beauty matters too

There are so many ways you can do to take care of your appearance. You can start simple, getting a haircut that actually compliments the shape of your face, regular grooming of the facial hair, or committing to a self-care regimen like washing your face regularly, applying lotion, and so on. After you’ve gotten the hang of it, start investing in skin care products that work well with your skin types or learning makeup tricks that could accentuate your features even more.

New year, new wardrobe

Another simple way to reinvent yourself for the coming year is to revamp your look and try something different. If jeans and t-shirts are your usual go-to, try wearing skirts, dresses, or jumpsuits more often. If your wardrobe tends to be monochromatic, try introducing more color in your pieces. Go to stores like Zalora to look for inspirations and browse thousands of products that can elevate your wardrobe for 2019. Better yet, Zalora is holding their annual 12.12 sales with exclusive discounts and offers so you can shop for new items without going over-budget.
