January may have come and gone, yet it’s not too late to finish a New Year’s Resolution list and put it into action. There is never a wrong time to think about what we want to achieve in the coming year. And as the saying goes, “there’s no time like the present.” Instead of thinking about the negatives in your life that you want to change, focus on things that are optimistic and hopeful. The new year provides a clean slate and a time to put our efforts into personal wellness and stronger interpersonal connections.

Get Fitted for the Right Size Bra
Likely the #1 New Year’s Resolution on people’s lists include more trips to the gym and healthier eating habits. In the meantime, it is a good idea to get fitted for the right size bra. The better you feel, the more likely you are to stick to healthy habits that improve the way you feel. Dora Lau, founder and president of Dora L International, has been seeing high demand for a new type of lingerie called the “all day” bra. An “all day bra” is great for every type of activity that you do, especially if you are working from home. That means that if you’re taking an online yoga class in the morning or going for a brisk walk with your dog in the afternoon, there’s no reason to get changed. New fabric technologies and wireless options offer support and comfort while still providing beautiful styles.
