Happy New Year, everyone! We can hardly believe it’s already 2024! What better way to kick off the New Year than with a few resolutions? It’s the perfect time to set goals, envision what you’d like the next year to look like, and reflect on everything you accomplished the year before. Taking the time at the start of the year to plan and envision what you want to achieve can have a strong impact and set the tone for the whole year.
Resolutions don’t have to be big, monumental changes. It’s the small steps we take every day that lead to significant change and, ultimately, big payoff.
When we launched P’tula in 2016, we started with the Sami legging. The goal was to create a pair of leggings that our owner and COO, Sami, simply could not find to address her needs both inside and outside of the gym while empowering women in the process. The point is, she started with a small step — one really good pair of leggings. That small step turned into several other small steps that led P’tula to where it is today. And guess what? Even now, we still break everything we do down into the small steps that make it happen every single day.
Whether your New Year's resolution is to move your body more, be on time, save money, conquer your reading list, or travel to new places, it’s the steps you take daily that truly count and eventually add up. You can’t read 100 books this year without first turning a page. You can’t save $5,000 without first saving one dollar. This year, we invite you to make your New Year resolutions, new day resolutions. Rather than setting intentions at the start of the year and forgetting about them come March, how can you bring your resolutions with you into your daily life? Rather than waiting for the new year to resolve to improve, what happens if the invitation to change is something that is always open all year round? What if when we miss the mark, we forgive ourselves and try again? What if we keep going, even when we don’t do it perfectly?
That’s where the magic happens. Persistence. Showing up. Following through. Trying again (and again). Persistence feelsGood.
If one of your resolutions for 2024 is to move more, we’ve rounded up our top five picks for the new year. All 5 of these pieces can be mixed and matched to create different looks for the gym, lounging, and beyond.
