2014 is almost here, and you know what that means…time to set your resolutions for the new year! Whether this task leaves you feeling excited, inspired or maybe even a little uncomfortable, keep in mind that your resolution is unique to you and you have the power to chose it or change it!
Here are some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions paired with the perfect shoes to make them a reality.
There are many ways to reduce stress and have a more zen 2014, but we think that simply enjoying a little “me time” will make your life a whole lot more enjoyable. So steep some tea or make a cup of hot cocoa and cozy up by the fire in a comfy pair of slippers. Make sure the house is quiet and all of your electronics are turned off (except for, perhaps, a little relaxation music). Take some deep breaths and enjoy the moment. You’ll feel like a million bucks afterwards. Repeat this ritual as needed throughout the year, swapping slippers and a fire for sandals and your back yard in warmer months.
Becoming more fit is possibly the most popular of all New Year’s resolutions! But it can also be the most difficult to stick with. We think that a key motivator, besides the obvious health benefits, can be cute workout attire. Who can resist a pair of running shoes with hot pink detailing or some fun animal or polka dot prints. You’ll have a little extra pep in your step when you’re loving your workout look. So get going fit friends, and make 2014 your year.
If your resolution is to help others or be more eco-friendly, the Skechers’ Bobs Reclaimed shoes are a perfect fit. Skechers’ uses a soft eco-friendly linen fabric on the upper part of this shoe and donates a pair to a child in need when you purchase a pair. Two resolutions covered in one shoe, talk about efficiency! Find out more about how Bobs helps kids in our blog post from earlier this year.
Stepping out of your comfort zone and travelling to far way places can enrich your life in ways you never thought possible! There’s a world to explore out there and 2014 is your year to embrace adventure and jet set to the destinations of your choice. Consider mapping out a list of places you’ve been dying to see, but never made a priority. Then do a little online research to determine what is feasible within your budget. Remember that air and hotel rates fluctuate throughout the year for every location, so think smart! If you’re headed somewhere warm, our shoe pick is G by Guess’ Ranita 2. It will seamlessly take you from day to night, and won’t budge as you trek through your city of choice.
