EDI­TOR’S NOTE

Herworld (Singapore) - - CONTENTS - – DFL, FEA­TURES & LIFESTYLE EDI­TOR

We’ve all been there, mak­ing those hasty, half-hearted res­o­lu­tions sim­ply be­cause it’s a new year and we just kinda need some­thing to pro­pel us through an­other 12 months. But this whole “New Year’s res­o­lu­tion” thing is a con­ceit, mean­ing­less if you’re try­ing to achieve any­thing of note. (How’s that gym mem­ber­ship com­ing along?)

We’re propos­ing a more holis­tic ap­proach to deal­ing with 2019, where you es­chew con­ve­nience; avoid the com­fort zone; get real with your dreams; dial down the hap­pi­ness in­dex; adopt a more mind­ful ap­proach to makeup (stop preen­ing just for the ’gram); be free of trends, so­cial me­dia and celebs; and in­stead, sim­ply at­tempt to be­come a bet­ter hu­man be­ing, first for your­self, then by ex­ten­sion, to oth­ers.

So whether it’s about a more prac­ti­cal ap­proach to beauty, buy­ing less fast fash­ion, or find­ing a men­tor to guide you through the morass, it all starts within… this mag­a­zine.

Clock­wise from near right: Free your mind and the rest will fol­low, as the song goes; use “anti-pol­lu­tion” fra­grances that are good for ev­ery­body; prac­tise mind­ful beauty and look mar­vel­lous.
