We thought it was interesting that so many people have the same New Year’s Resolution. Maybe we all have a lot more in common than we think. Did you know that only 12% of us keep our resolutions? We want to help you with that. If you follow our advice, you will see the answer lies in one little word. It is really very simple.

Recent polls show that more than 50% of Americans vow to appreciate loved ones and spend more time with family and friends this year. We suggest grabbing your friends hand and your purse and start shopping fast. Coincidentally, shopping is the best answer for the second resolution on the list as well; getting fit. Regular exercise is the key to achieving overall health.  Everyone knows that strolling the downtown boutiques shopping reduces stress, increases heart rate, enhances mood, lowers blood pressure, and even improves appearance. In short, exercise by shopping with friends keeps you healthy and makes you look and feel better.

Studies report that over 66 % percent of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese, so it is not surprising to find that weight loss is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions.  Many people snack when they are feeling bored or need a lift. We suggest opening our website and not the refrigerator door. Spend time shopping while imagining yourself in all the beautiful pieces of our collection. This will certainly lift your spirits while the hunger pains pass.

Given the hectic, stressful lifestyles of Americans, it is no wonder that “enjoying life more” has become a popular resolution. If you are paying attention at all you will already know that shopping is the clear answer. We believe that you should reward yourself for all the hard work you do with a little gift of something sparkly and beautiful.

Another popular New Year’s resolution is to help others. This resolution works double duty as an enjoyable way to also relieve stress.  Businesses that give back, like Saint Vintage, make it easy to help others while, yes, you guessed it, SHOPPING. We donate proceeds from all sales directly to cancer research.  The proceeds help patients gain new testing and medications. The donations help make advances towards a cure.

So, to increase the odds of keeping your many New Years’ resolutions we suggest changing it to “Shop more !”
