New Year's Resolution Check-In

Time is flying. We are already two weeks into 2023, and studies show that nearly two-thirds of people abandon their New Year’s Resolutions by the end of the month. With that in mind, we want to encourage you not to give up! Even if you have already slipped in your resolution, there are still 50 weeks left in 2023—do not be afraid to get back on the horse and keep on trying. You can do it!

Do you remember the goals you set last New Year’s? Well, looking back, how did you do? Did you make it to the gym every day? Did you end up making a budget and spending less money like you promised yourself? 

If we’re being honest with ourselves, most of us did not fulfill our resolutions to the T in 2022. We had cheat days throughout the year, or we made exceptions for vacations and other exigencies. But you know what? That’s not what matters. Whether you actually trained to run that marathon or lost that 20 pounds, the most important thing to consider when you look back is whether you tried. If you can look in the mirror and tell yourself that you worked hard on your 2022 New Year’s resolutions, then you should be content. Even if you slipped, let that be all the motivation you need to try harder this time around. 

That does raise the question: What is your 2023 New Year’s resolution? Are going the same route as last year or taking a different tack? According to the data, the most popular resolutions this year are “exercise more,” “eat healthier,” and “lose weight.” In other words, they all have to do with personal wellness and self-care. 

Almost a quarter of the way through the 21st century and it is clear that people now realize how important it is to tend to their own health and well-being. Of course, that includes things like eating healthier and exercising that people have been saying for years, but it also involves other tactics like relieving anxiety and stress. Increasingly, people are realizing that living well requires an alignment of the body, mind and spirit.

Here at NAIPO, our New Year’s goal is the same goal we have every other day of the year. In fact, it is our company motto: “Find Well-being.” Every day, we strive to do what we can to spread the tenets of personal well-being throughout the world. We put this idea into practice with every massager we make, and we want to help others wherever we can with what we have learned over the years. That is, finding well-being is a process, and it is a process that no one should undergo alone.
