Here are some other ways to help you make boost your confidence and embrace the new year…

1) Love the skin you’re in

How often do you tell yourself just how amazing you are? We’re all guilty of focusing on the negatives, the things we wish we could change or that don’t quite measure up to the standards we set ourselves. Spend a few minutes a day thinking about what’s great about you and what you do or have that sets you apart from everybody else. See what’s beautiful about you and be thankful. Help yourself to feel good from the inside out by eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep and taking regular exercise, whether that’s jogging with your friends or signing up to a local dance class.
Wearing the Always Discreet for Sensitive Bladder product that best suits your needs from the new range of liners, pads and pants will help you to feel confident and secure every day. Flexible, comfortable, with a unique highly-absorbent core, Always Discreet pads and liners for sensitive bladder are up to 40% thinner* than the leading brand, yet offer twice as much absorbency than you may need.** The pants thanks to their thin triple layer core offer up to 100% comfort and protection. Plus, all products have the exclusive OdourLockTM technology that neutralises odours continuously. So you can feel protected and in control whatever your day has in store for you.

2) Smile more

Top beauty experts say the biggest beauty boost ever is to… smile! It’s an instant facelift and makes us look and feel more attractive. Psychologists recommend it too, as, even if we’re feeling grumpy, it tricks our brains into releasing feel-good hormones, which actually make us happier. So set yourself a daily reminder to smile and laugh more and you’ll be amazed at how you soon take life’s little annoyances and stresses in your stride. And with Always Discreet for sensitive bladder you can now enjoy laughing with friends without fear of annoying little leaks.

3) De-stress for good

There are never enough hours in the day to tackle your to-do list, and despite our best efforts we all have stress in our lives. However, if it’s not kept in check it can have a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. Put some time aside every week to do something that relaxes you and helps to lower your anxiety levels. It could simply be taking time out to read a book in the bath, or you could sign up to a local yoga class. Yoga is a fantastic way to help your mind and body reach a relaxed state and lift your mood. How about trying 10 minutes of daily mindful meditation? This takes a bit of practice but it works wonders when it comes to achieving a more balanced and peaceful state of mind. Sit quietly, breathe deeply and focus on observing your thoughts and how your body feels.

4) Clear out your wardrobe

Fed up of that cluttered wardrobe that’s full of clothes that you haven’t worn in ages? Now’s the perfect opportunity to go through what’s on the rail and bag up anything you haven’t worn in the last year. Whether you plan to give the clothes to charity, sell them online or arrange a clothes swap with your friends, make a plan and see it through – don’t leave bags of unwanted clothes in the house, making more clutter. Once you’ve sorted them, reward yourself by treating yourself to some new items to replace them. Boost your confidence by embracing styles and trends you would usually shy away from. Always in dark hues? Now’s the time to add a splash of colour. Prefer to disguise yourself in baggy clothes? Try something more fitted, whether it’s a dress or a pair of slimlegged trousers.

5) Learn a new skill

When was the last time you challenged yourself to learn something new? A new year is the ideal opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. It could be learning a language, joining a choir, trying life drawing, or going back to college to study for a part-time degree, the list of possibilities is endless.
