For Every Quick Fix There’s A Long-Lasting Alternative


In life, as well as in beauty and health, we can be too quick to take the shortcut, the easy way out or the simple option. When we opt for something that’s quicker, we can be selling ourselves short. Even if that quick fix seems like a great option at the time, it very rarely is. More often than not, you’ll discover that the longer, more sustainable, harder option would have worked out for the best. When you’re next tempted to take the easier option in life, or when it comes to health and beauty, think twice. The alternative could be a lot better for you than you realise.

Instead Of Fad Diets…

When you decide that you want to lose weight, you can often want it to happen overnight. But, that’s just not sustainable. Yes, you probably could lose a lot of weight by starving yourself or jumping on the crazy crash diet of the moment bandwagon. But, will it work in the long run? No. Not only are you damaging your health, but you’re also going to end up with saggy skin and probably put that weight back on. Instead, you want to focus on making a healthy lifestyle change and finding a balance that works for you. Perfection takes patience, remember that.

Instead Of Paying For It…

Sometimes, people can have more money than sense. It can be easy to choose to pay for something and have it now, than work for it and get it for free. But what’s the fun in that? Whether you decide to get laser liposuction or hair extensions, you can end up shelling out a lot of money for something you could achieve on your own, if only you worked that little bit harder.

Instead Of Drawing Them On…

When it comes to beauty, some of our daily rituals can become a complete and utter chore. So much so, that we begrudge doing them every single day. Actions like drawing on your eyebrows, or even wearing mascara can be easily replaced, giving you more time and energy for more important things. Microblading, or cosmetic tattooing, is a game changer for your eyebrows - because they’re permanently drawn on. And so are lash extensions. In this case, you just have to weigh up your wants.

Instead Of Getting Botox…

We can be too quick to dismiss proper skin care in the knowledge that alternatives are there if we should ever need them. But, in reality, that’s the worst kind of attitude to have. Why waste the good skin that you have, thinking that you can repair it whenever you need to? Instead of relying on botox (that may not even be right for you), work on repairing and protecting your skin while you still can. Surely you know prevention is better than cure?

Instead Of Tomorrow…

Now this one definitely applies to life, and not just health and beauty, but we all always seem to be waiting for tomorrow. What if tomorrow never comes? Or, just maybe, what if tomorrow is just too soon? When it comes to your ambitions and goals, whether they are health related or life-related, tomorrow is never good enough. Start now, be realistic and hold out for that long lasting alternative. It’s always worth the wait.
