Viscata New Year’s Resolutions Ideas

Viscata New Year’s Resolutions Ideas

It’s the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one. Time to remember the good times and perhaps to reflect on the not so good times as we prepare to make the best of the year ahead. None of us are perfect and we can all improve our lives for 2024.  And January is the perfect month to do it.

When should I write my New Year’s resolutions?

Well, here’s the good news. There’s no real deadline on resolutions. Once you put your mind to it, there’s no time limit. Just be clear about what you need to work on and set about improving it. It’s not too late to use these darker winter months for a little self-reflection. Some people choose to write their new year’s resolutions down so they won’t forget. Others prefer to tell everybody so that they can be held accountable later in the year. And others simply prefer to quietly let them fade after a few months hoping that nobody will notice. But to be clear, resolutions can be made at any time of year, not just for the new year.

How long do most new year’s resolutions last?

Well, according to the latest research from Forbes the average American’s new years’ resolutions last for 3.74 months. Only 8 % of respondents stuck with their goals for one month, with another 22% lasting for two months and only 13% of respondents were still going after four months. In fact, 37% of Americans say that they set out to make New Year’s resolutions every year, with many of them giving up by January 17th (which has now become fondly known as “Ditch Your Resolutions Day”)

So what are our customers resolving for 2024?

Well we’ve been chatting to some of our customers to see how they’re planning to improve their lives for 2024. And it seems that our customers have a diverse range of hopes and dreams for the year ahead. Some want to do more travelling, others would like to spend more time in nature. Many of you said you’d like to “glam up” in 2024 while others want to be more ambitious and successful at work. Some of you told us you’d like to spend more time with nature while others wanted to be more colorful and optimistic. So, let’s take a look at some of the most popular resolutions for 2024 and see if we can help you make some of them come true. And remember, we have the perfect selection of espadrilles to help you on your way.

Back to nature

This is one of the most popular resolutions. In our hectic world where many of us live stressful urban lives, sometimes it’s nice just to get back to nature, take a walk outside and breathe in some fresh air. Why should you spend more time in nature? Well not only is it an awesome thing to do, but it can dramatically reduce anxiety and improve your mental health. Here in Catalunya, we’re surrounded by beautiful scenery from the stunning mountains of the Pyrenees to the pristine and spectacular beaches of the Costa Brava, this is a natural paradise. And it’s this background that gave birth to our beautiful espadrilles. Original shoes, handmade in Spain by local artisans for authenticity and quality. We think these beautiful Barceloneta Canvas Espadrilles are the perfect pair of shoes to celebrate nature and to enjoy the natural materials we use to ensure the quality of every pair. You’re going to need some comfortable shoes if you’re going to enjoy those walks and we have just the shoes for you to celebrate nature and slow fashion your way.

Enjoy more culture

Some of us just like having a good time. Others find stimulation in culture and more sedate and sophisticated pursuits. And culture comes in all forms these days. So if you’re into walking around the streets looking for fine art galleries and museums, we have the shoes for you.

Some people might choose to read books, others might want to learn another language. Some might prefer to work their way through all their favorite museums. Some people might even challenge themselves to shop smarter and to embrace the values of slow fashion. But we can offer you beautiful shoes to suit the occasion, whatever you choose.
