Ways to reinvent yourself in the New Year

It’s fair to say most of us didn’t have the 2020 we had planned, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t teach us some good life lessons, including our ability to adapt and change. And it’s precisely these qualities that can help you reinvent yourself this year!

Change your style

Perhaps the most obvious way to reinvent yourself is to switch up your style. Your taste in fashion, make-up and how you wear your hair says a lot about your character, and just altering one thing can have a dramatic impact on the way you carry yourself, and the confidence you exude. If you’re unsure where to start, speaking to a colour consultant about which shades will suit your skin tone will help. If you’re in a tier where hairdressers are open, book yourself in to see a stylist.

Make new friends

Making new friends doesn’t mean leaving old ones behind. Instead, think of how you want to reinvent yourself, what type of person you want to be, and who you might want to socialise with. Believe it or not, your peers can have an impact on who you become, so be mindful of the new friends you choose and make sure they support this vision you have of yourself.

Get a hold of your finances

The New Year is the perfect time to reinvent yourself as someone who is in control of their finances. Take the time to sit down and budget your year ahead. Think about what you want to achieve over the next 12 months. Is it saving for a house deposit, streamlining your credit cards, or maybe you’re planning on retiring early?

Not only will this help you feel more in control, but it will enable you to reach your financial goals, and you won’t feel as stressed about money as you perhaps once were.

Improve your health

Christmas is often a time of over-indulgence, and exercise and better nutrition are the most common New Year’s resolutions. Make 2021 the year you commit to a healthier you. This doesn’t mean being a slave to the numbers on the scales, but rather making healthier choices on a daily basis.

It could mean reducing the number of times you go out to eat or parking in the furthest spot in the supermarket instead of the nearest one. They don’t have to be massive changes, but it’s the small ones that will make the biggest difference to your health.
