To say that 2020 has been a difficult year would be a bit of an understatement. The COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc worldwide, causing thousands of people to get sick, lose loved ones, and experience financial strife. However, with the discovery of a vaccine, there does seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel. With the new year fast approaching, there is a promise of a clean slate and a feeling of great possibility. As we start setting tangible new year’s resolutions, it is a chance to reflect on a tough year that has probably made a lot of us appreciate simplicity. This new year is also an opportunity to seize the day, and many of us will be looking for ways to improve our lives. Here are just a few ideas to help reinvent yourself in 2021.
Treat Yourself and Revamp Your Wardrobe
With government-imposed lockdown orders implemented across the globe, 2020 didn’t provide much opportunity for us to get dressed up, but hopefully the new year will be a different story. Why not spoil yourself with a few feel-good items to revamp that wardrobe? Or how about getting yourself a pretty dress to make you feel like a star? For a great selection of styles, check out online fashion stores like Dainty Jewells. Shopping without leaving the comfort of your home could be said to be one of the few good things to come out of 2020.
Change Your Hairstyle
If you are looking to go one step further, why not give yourself a totally new look by making a dramatic change to your hair? Give yourself a fresh feel by chopping off those long, tired locks. Alternatively, you could add in some removable hair extensions for something a little more versatile. How about doing something totally wild and changing up your hair color? Find out for yourself if blondes really do have more fun, or let your inner unicorn run free by adding a shade of purple with purple ombre hair into your life.
Commit to Exercise As a Way of Life
It’s one thing to reinvent yourself on the outside, but how about improving how you feel on the inside? While those ever-popular “get fit” resolutions may be a bit of a cliche, you can’t deny the importance of exercise. Try not to focus solely on weight loss, and try to see exercise as a way of extending your life and improving your health. Whether you take up running, hit the gym, or get involved in a dance class, exercise has the potential to make you feel fabulous.
Find a New Hobby
Is there something you’ve always wanted to try your hand at? Perhaps learning a language, or taking up photography or the piano? Choose something and commit to pursuing that hobby this year. Learning new things allows you to focus your mind in a positive way and will help with your personal development. Building on your talents or developing a particular skill is a great way to present yourself in a new light and show the world a new facet of your personality.
While there are many things you can do to live a more fabulous life, these are just a few relatively easy ideas to give you a push in the right direction. The key to reinventing yourself is just a matter of investing a little time into making the necessary change. Remember that not all change needs to be monumental; even simple things have the potential to do you the world of good. Best wishes for 2021!
