New Year, Same You (But Better)

January 6

Okay, so, maybe 2021 isn’t looking that different compared to 2020, but, if you can’t change your circumstances, change your outlook! Don’t doubt the power of positivity.

We’ve put together a few simple suggestions to help you look on the bright side, feel your best, and start the new year off on the right foot with the help of Willowbrook’s retailers!


They say a person who cuts their hair is about to change the world. A new look may be just what you need to feel refreshed and recharged for the new year. Whether it’s a bold chop, a new colour, or just a trim and toner making time for yourself is a great way to spend an afternoon and make a positive change.

If you’re not ready for a new cut and colour, try talking to a stylist about different ways to style your hair—like changing your part, adding a funky accessory, or learning a quick up-do—and learn more about styling products that can help you achieve a selfie-worthy look in no time.

Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop has incredible American Crew and AG Hair products that will do wonders for any man out there. You can also find AG Hair products at Essentials Hair Design, Pizazz Hair Design, Eccotique as well as Zennkai.


All activity is good activity. So, while you may have big dreams of hitting the gym on a regular basis or finding the self-discipline to regularly go for a run, it’s important to set realistic goals and celebrate small victories. Get up and go for a quick walk before you have a cup of coffee, take the stairs when you get the chance, or put your laundry away piece by piece to get closer to hitting your daily goal of 10,000 steps.

That being said, treat yourself to some comfy new kicks from Sport Chek to help you stay on track, or a pair of leggings from lululemon that let you stretch and move with ease. Don’t worry—we won’t tell anyone if you wear them to work, too.


No, seriously. Drinking more water has countless benefits to both your physical self, like improving your complexion, bettering your digestion, and alleviating headaches, but can also help with memory retention and boosting your mood. Plus, it’s a great excuse to grab a new water bottle that you’ll definitely want to keep within arm’s reach. Sport Chek, Nutrition House and lululemon have a ton of different varieties of water bottles that can help you quench your thirst.

Pssst…a quick tip we learned is to set reminders on our phones to remind us to drink more water!

As we push forward into 2021, keep your glass half full, your eyes on the prize and your mask over your nose.
