ALL NEW!!

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU, NEW CLIO

TIME FLIES! We can’t believe it’s already February! Here at Clio we are super excited to announce all of the amazing things we have in store for 2017! First of all, we’ve updated our website, which now includes a store locator so you will always know exactly where to find us! The next big news is that we are starting a blog that will be updated at least one a week. Be sure to stay tuned for new and exciting posts!

We’re big on resolutions at Clio! Whether you’ve decided to work on staying in shape, getting organized, getting more sleep, eating better, drinking more water, saving your money, taking better care of your skin, or getting better grades, we want to help you! January has flown by and as we all know, this is the time of year we all start slipping when it comes to our resolutions. Here’s a list of tips and tricks for staying on track with your goals!

  1. BE PATIENT – if your goal is aimed toward achieving specific results … it’s easy to give up early on if you aren’t making the progress you’d hoped for, but it’s important to remember that great things take time!
  2. MAKE A SCHEDULE (and stick to it!) – if you know you have trouble finding time to work towards your goals … sit down every Sunday to plan out when you’ll work on them during the week ahead.
  3. SHARE – if you know you’re someone who needs a little push … share your goals with friends or family. It’s easier to stay on track when you have someone holding you accountable (and don’t be afraid to return the favor).
  4. STAY CALM – if you stray a bit from the right track … remember that nobody’s perfect and missteps are OK! Don’t give up completely if you do something that doesn’t align perfectly with your resolution. Instead, take a deep breath, remember that everyone has ups and downs, and make a plan to get yourself back on track.
  5. START SMALL – if you get intimidated by large tasks … set goals that are reasonable to attain or divide your larger goals into smaller parts. It’s easy to get discouraged if you feel like you’re in over your head and it’ll feel good to meet these mini-goals along the way.
  6. BUILD UP – if you tend to jump into things head first … you’re likely to burn out fast. Gradually build up the time and effort you spend working on your goals to stay motivated throughout the year.
  7. TAKE NOTES – if you have trouble staying motivated … it’s probably because you’ve forgot what you’re working for. Make a note of your time-frame, your motivators, your progress along the way and the benefits of achieving your goal. This will give you something to look at when your motivation is lacking.
  8. TREAT YOURSELF – if you’re someone who is driven by recognition … recognize small feats! Reward yourself for your progress. Not only will this feel great, it will help you stay on track by giving you another reason to look forward to reaching your goals.

So many resolutions are health-inspired and if you’re anything like us at Clio, you’re constantly searching new, quick at-home workouts. Chances are you’re incredibly busy and some days you hardly have 10 minutes to spare, which can make squeezing in a trip to the gym difficult. We all know that exercising is important for our health, so we’ve put together a quick daily workout that you can do pretty much anywhere. Starting today we invite all of you to take part in our February challenge! Start your day with the workout that corresponds with the day of the week and see how good you feel on February 28th!
