Indulge in 2016…


This post was originally emailed to our UPlift community in Dec 2015. 
It’s the time of year when many of us make New Year’s Resolutions but around this time last year I tried something different: instead of making resolutions I set goals, things that I intended to accomplish both personally, and with Underpinnings during 2015. That worked out pretty well (see more on my goal setting process in this blog post) so I’ve decided to do it again this year, but this time I’m sharing my goal for Underpinnings with you as a cherished member of the Underpinnings community.

I’ve been listening all year long as clients step into the fitting room. Outside of the heartwarming smiles and dancing (yes, dancing!) I’ve seen when you’ve put on that bra that makes you feel like you can take over the world (yay!) I’ve also been privy to a lot of the negative self-talk and criticism about our bodies and ourselves that we women have all too often.

That’s why I’m declaring 2016 to be The Year of Self Indulgence!

Why Indulgence? Because my goal this year is to help you quiet those inner critics by encouraging you to do things that rejuvenate you (self-care – think spa day or a movie night with girlfriends) and revitalize you (healthy habits – think some sort of movement every day). Every month you’ll get the Indulgent goal for the month delivered to your inbox and I’ll be doing it right along with you. When you’re taking time to take care of yourself both physically and emotionally it will be easier to stop your inner critic and replace the thought with something more self-affirming.

And just in case a year of self-indulgence isn’t enough for you, every month Underpinnings will be giving away a $100 gift certificate to the person who throws herself most into that month’s activity (pretty undies = even more indulgence!)

Of course, we’ll continue doing what we do best – helping you find bras and other innerwear pieces that are comfortable, supportive and pretty…because life’s too short for boring!

I’d love to know YOUR big plans for 2016. In the comments below write back and tell me:
