Happy New Year! 3 Tips from Collage Video:

It’s the Perfect Opportunity to Adopt or Strengthen Healthy Habits

With December coming to an end, the New Year is right around the corner.  The start of each New Year is a time when many of us set goals or resolutions and a largely popular one falls under our department, fitness.  It’s easy to set fitness goals, but we often do not consider the effort required to achieve them.  That can lead to us feeling like we’ve fell short of our potential, and unfortunately, be accompanied by feelings of failure and disappointment.  Let’s prevent that.  For those of you looking to kickstart 2019 with a positive lifestyle change, Collage Video is here to help you.  Although we primarily focus on fitness, we believe that these tips are applicable to varying goals that you may have.  There are plenty of fantastic resources available online to help guide you, but we’ve identified three tips that we find are essential for success.

  • Start by focusing on one thing at a time.  When implementing a lifestyle change, some try to do too much at once.  This facilitates feelings of uneasiness and being overwhelmed.  It’s an admirable trait to want to jump into a healthier lifestyle and do as much as quickly as you can.  But this usually doesn’t work and has the reverse effect.  Find a rhythm in one aspect of a healthier life and be satisfied that you’re making a positive change.  Then allow things to naturally follow.  You’ll find that by starting one healthy habit, like exercising, it will lead to others like diet modification and positive mentality.
  • Preparation is a form of procrastination.  This tip comes with a little disclaimer: Be smart.  We aren’t encouraging you to dead-lift 500lbs on your first attempt.  What we mean is this…Say you’re interested in running a marathon this year but are out of shape, so you tell yourself: “I’ll sign up for a marathon later in the year because I need to prepare.”  No.  There is significance behind Nike’s slogan, “Just Do It.”  Walk the marathon if you need to.  And then sign up for another one later in the year and strive to improve your time or endurance.  Push yourself to get started because if you put things off to prepare, often you won’t do it at all (and even worse, usually you won’t even prepare!).
  • Our last tip, and arguably most important one, is to keep trying.  There is an immense amount of personal empowerment in picking yourself up and continuing.  As you may have heard before, “The road to success is paved with failures.”  The best thing that you can do, even if you’ve stalled for a while and are questioning if it’s worth trying again, is to give it another shot.

And remember, consistency is key.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year,

IMPORTANT: Your 2018 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Attention Collage Video Customers:  Getting orders out on time this holiday season (and always!) is crucial for both you, and us.  This time of year we experience high volumes of orders, so we urge you to err on the side of caution, and allow as much time as possible.  Our policy states that it takes 1 - 3 business days to ship an order after it's received, so we urge you to consider it may take the full 3-day processing period for your order to ship out.

For example (if you are shipping to the US): We primarily use USPS First Class Mail, so if you need your order by Christmas you should have your order placed on Sunday, December 16th.  We strongly encourage you to place your orders as soon as possible to ensure that it will be delivered by the time you need it to be.  For full information regarding order shipments, click here.
