Holiday

New Year, New You

New Year's Resolution Ideas

At Violife, we are not just celebrating the New Year, we are celebrating the New You. If you are like most of us, who try to push through the daily grind of modern life with work, a hectic social calendar, family commitments and chores galore, you know that it gets hard to find a moment to reflect. When we step back to reflect on the past year, we get a better perspective on things that we’ve been doing right and the flaws that continue to annoy us. Did you make your New Year’s resolutions, yet? We want to wish you a Happy New You and help you follow through on your resolutions or inspire you to make them if you haven’t yet. It’s never too late!

The New Year is a Perfect Time for Resolutions

New Year's resolutions

First of all, for all the things that you are doing right, and there’s plenty in that area for sure—give yourself a pat on the shoulder. You deserve it! But what about the habits that have haunted you throughout the past year that you’d like to forget and get rid of? Now is the time to tackle those. The New Year is the perfect time to introduce resolutions, change those habits, set new goals and reach those aspirations. We have compiled suggestions to get you started. For example, maybe you could introduce more exercise, stop smoking, detox your body, drink more water, read more, sleep better, or just smile brighter with a whiter smile. If any of these are things you’d like to tackle in the New Year, make sure you get them down on paper. They sound perfect!

Pick the Things that You Really Care About

Healthy New Year

Prepare your New Year’s resolutions list as short or as long as you like. Then ask yourself the question – what do you really want? In order to improve the chances of fulfilling your goals, they should be aligned with your life purpose. If you are looking to exercise more, work out a schedule, find a gym or a training partner. New Year’s resolutions are a bit like dieting – we are enthusiastic at the beginning and then gradually the enthusiasm wears off. This year, pick the things that you really care about and get on them.

Sleep Better Every Night and Wake up Rested

Best Thanksgiving Facts to Talk about over Turkey and Gravy

Every year on the fourth Thursday of November, families across the U.S. gather with their loved ones to feast on turkey, watch football and give thanks to and for each other. But there is much more to this Holiday than just that.
Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that allows us to learn more about sharing, gratitude and compassion for others. It’s a good reminder that we all need to take time to show appreciation and spread kindness. This is why it’s important to talk about the holiday’s true meaning.

Here are some interesting facts about the Thanksgiving tradition:

  • The first Thanksgiving took place in Plymouth, Massachusetts in the autumn of 1621 and lasted three days.
  • President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving, but it wasn’t until 1941 that Congress finally made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday.
  • No turkey was served on the first Thanksgiving feast. It is believed that pilgrims ate fish, geese, nuts, cabbage, goat cheese and pumpkin (no pumpkin pie though).
  • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird instead of the bald eagle. He thought the bald eagle had a “bad moral character.”
  • Almost 90% of Americans eat turkey on Thanksgiving. The estimated number of turkeys eaten each Thanksgiving is 46 million!
  • The ‘wishbone’ of the turkey is used in a good luck ritual on Thanksgiving Day.
  • For nearly 70 years, the president has pardoned at least one turkey. The luckiest bird gets to live out the rest of its life on a farm.
  • The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City took place in 1924. It was originally launched by Macy’s employees and it featured animals from the Central Park Zoo. Nowadays, 3 million people attend the parade while 44 million watch it live on TV.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

  • In 1939 President Franklin D. Roosevelt decided to move Thanksgiving up in order to stretch out the holiday shopping season. Black Friday didn’t become a popular shopping “holiday” until the 1960s.
  • And the last random fact of the day – In 2013, our company changed its name from ‘Violight’ to ‘Violife’ while refreshing its packaging and website, but still keeping the company logo identical to what it used to be. We wanted to make sure our customers still recognized the company they grew to know and love. We have come a long way since 2004 — from our highly-styled UV sanitizers to our first set of Slim Sonic toothbrushes. Today, Violife products are sold in over 20 countries around the world, and we are proud to partner with some of the top retailers here in the USA.

Although probably not your typical Thanksgiving fact,we hope that this little reminder of how far we’ve come is as exciting for you as it is for us. This is the time of year that we reflect on where we’ve been and set our sights on the next iteration of our growing company. We are grateful for our great sense of family, fun, hard work, and amazing products. With millions of happy customers all over the globe, we are beyond THANKFUL for an opportunity to share our Vio-‘life’ with all of you!
Happy Thanksgiving!
