RISE & SHINE: START YOUR DAY RIGHT WITH THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE!
Grazia|January 2021
As we start the New Year, bright and hopeful that this one will be more productive than the last, we are urged to revisit our habits and make ‘resolutions’ for change.

And change can be positive too, especially when you have someone to share it with. Setting achievable goals and staying motivated is vital, and when you have a doting partner to encourage you and join you on your journey, it should be a cinch.

Did you know that sleep can boost your productivity levels? Inadequate and unrestful sleep, on the other hand, can increase stress and anxiety, while leaving you fatigued.

A new Chapter

Beauty stereotyping – we’ve all fought it or succumbed to it. Very few women have been spared the horror of meeting the ideals of beauty dictated by the world. But change must start from within, be it in the way we see ourselves or others. It’s time to acknowledge that ‘beauty’ cannot be defined by or limited to certain characteristics. With Dove’s #StopTheBeautyTest, we’re urging you to take the onus on yourself. Celebrate your beauty and that of others around you. Grow from your struggles, grow with those of others as you uplift them. And, while you’re at it, take inspiration from these strong women who went from being books judged by their covers to changing the narrative themselves
