A New Year, A New You: Make Your Resolutions Happen with Still Spa in Kirkland

How many times do we see the social media posts about making a New Year's resolution and two weeks later they have forgotten about it? At Still Spa in Kirkland, we encourage you to be different and take your resolutions through the whole year with you. Whether it is relaxation, wellness, weight loss, or breaking a habit here are some simple ways to make a resolution and stick to it. 

Make the changes to your behavior...

Until you change your routine and actually start doing something, nothing will happen. If your goal is to lose weight, don't just sign up for a gym membership; sign up for the membership, schedule workout time, and set your alarm to wake up and actually work out. If your resolution is to be less stressed and take some time for yourself; schedule some time out for something you enjoy and do it on a consistent basis. Our Still Spa guests that use a treatment for that time, find that they receive the full effects if they consistently return to do it. This could be a facial series protecting their skin from the Kirkland cold or a massage that takes them to a relaxing escape.

Define SMART Goals...

Make sure the goals you set are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-specific. Instead of leaving it vague like "I will be less stressed..." make a goal statement like "I will take one hour a week to engage in a destressing activity of my choice by 1/5/2015." Make sure it is something that you want to achieve! Our Still Spa Kirkland team finds that guests are much more committed to their goals when they understand where they are going. Understanding why a scheduled massage each week can have long term benefits will make it much easier to continue this action.

Reward Small Achievements...

Staying focused on the goal is the best way to achieve it. Make sure you track and reward your progress to keep the effort strong. Maybe treat yourself to a small gift you've been wanting as a reminder that you are headed in the right direction and you can achieve your goals! We carry a diverse array of retail items at Still Spa in Kirkland just for this purpose. Whether it is a scented VOLUSPA candle or COOLA Suncare Sunscreen, little gifts like this can be the motivation to achieve your resolution this year!
