Happy New Year! We hope you had a fabulous end of 2014 full of Christmas parties and New Year celebrations. After some overindulging in the past few weeks, now is the perfect time for a fresh, new start. While everyone seems to make New Year’s resolutions about adopting a healthier lifestyle, few people seem to actually follow through with them. Our tip? Don’t set your goals too high and start with small steps.

If you want to lose a few pounds after overeating during Christmas time, the best way to do so is by eating healthy and working out. However, we understand that doing this alone is sometimes not enough to get rid of stubborn fat. The solution is Coolsculpting, a non-surgical treatment, which makes those nasty bumps and bulges disappear. But let’s start with the basics of a healthy lifestyle: Diet and exercise.

A good way to implement a work out into your daily life is to do it in the morning before work. Yes, we know it is hard to wake up even earlier than you normally do, but by doing so, not only are you getting it out of the way for the rest of the day, but you will also feel more energised at work. At night, try to go to sleep an hour earlier to give your body enough time to recover.

Cut back on sugar and incorporate vegetables or fruits into every meal. Most importantly: pack your own lunch! Not only will it be healthier than takeaway food, but it will also save you lots of money in the long run. Also remember that what you drink is just as important as what you eat. Stick to water or tea and ban soft drinks and alcohol.

But if all of that just isn’t enough to get the body you want, Coolsculpting will get you the results. Here is how it works: Coolsculpting freezes fat cells without damage to your skin. The best part? There’s no downtime! You can get on with everyday life right after the treatment.

Your skin is just as important as your body and often you will find that a healthy lifestyle also improves your skin, but it won’t get rid of fine lines or dark spots. The solution is an IPL facial, which improves the signs of sun damage and ageing, such as brown spots, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea, uneven or rough skin texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. The IPL facial is based on the same principle as laser, but instead emits a broad-spectrum of pulsed light to reach several layers of the skin at once. Get more information about IPL and other non-surgical skin treatments on our website.

No matter what your New Year’s Resolutions are, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve most of them, especially with a little help from the Dr Warwick Nettle team.
