Making Sustainable “New Year, New You” Goals for 2020

I’ve never been one to consider myself the athletic type. Growing up, I wasn’t particularly good or bad at any sport. In elementary school, I played basketball and took swimming lessons. In middle school, I joined the swim team. By high school, I realized I just wasn’t loving the sports life and decided to put more of my efforts into creative endeavors like art.

Adidas Women's Golf Outfit

For years, I’ve struggled to find a sport or athletic activity that I really connect with. I’ve tried cycling, running, barre, yoga, and joined a gym. For whatever reason, none of these things have stuck despite countless attempts at making New Year’s resolutions. Last year, however, Dave encouraged me to take up golf. I brushed him off over and over again, but he persisted.

Finally, to shut him up, I offered to take a golf lesson with him. Surprisingly, I didn’t hate it. So I went back. And then again, and again.

While I’m definitely no Tiger Woods, and will likely never be a great golfer, it has got me out of my athletic comfort zone. I’m using muscles that rarely get used in my day-to-day activities of typing, taking photos, and spending too much time on my phone. I’m getting more exercise and also trying new things, like visiting the driving range. I won’t lie; having an excuse to shop for women’s golf gear has been fun, too. I mean, after all, how cute are golf dresses and skorts?!

This year, I purposely made no New Years’ resolutions. Instead, I want to do more things that challenge and push me outside of my comfort zone, keep up and establish more healthy habits, and work on decluttering areas of my life that don’t bring me joy.

Today, I thought I’d share how I’m skipping the idea of “new year, new you” and instead of making sustainable changes that fit into my everyday routine!

How I Stay on Trend By Renting from Haverdash

The start of a new year means hitting the refresh button. I know many of you have made New Year’s resolutions, but does that extend to your closet, too? If you’re anything like me, then you’re trying to cut the clutter and reduce the overwhelm which extends to my wardrobe, too.

Haverdash Review // Wearing Modcloth Mock Neck Woven Floral Dress

Disclosure: Thanks to Haverdash for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own!

In 2018, I was first introduced to the concept of renting my wardrobe. And then in 2019, I met Haverdash. Haverdash is a newer clothing rental subscription service providing unlimited access to the latest looks from boutique brands like 1.State, cupcakes and cashmere, French Connection, BB Dakota, Comune, J.O.A., and many, many more. I love keeping up with the trends and mixing up my wardrobe, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased something to only wear it once or to find it hanging in my closet with the tags still on it. 

While I have worked to reduce these bad habits, renting my wardrobe helps me eliminate this problem completely. By borrowing the trend first, I can see if I actually like the style and try it with the rest of my wardrobe. It’s kind of like the revolving closet from Clueless that so many of us dreamed about when we were younger. (Who am I kidding, I still dream about this!)

If kicking off the New Year by renting a wardrobe with the help of Haverdash sounds up your alley, then read on for all of the details!
