So it’s the time of year when everyone is reviewing those resolutions that were made over a week ago and trying to figure out a way to keep them. Liven things up and make it more fun by incorporating your favorite diva into your healthy habits to better keep those resolutions.
If you are getting down and out with the post-holiday blues, try to pick yourself up with a playlist from Cher full of only her most upbeat, cheerful songs. Go for oldies like “I Got You Babe” and tracks from her dance album like “Strong Enough,” which has an inspirational message in and of itself. Also be sure to include those that have special personal significance to you. When you start to doubt yourself and your goals, play the list to cheer yourself up and help keep you going.
Can’t seen to get into the groove of a workout routine? Forget expensive gym memberships. Start simple until you’ve proven to yourself that you’re ready to commit to a thrice-weekly exercise routine. Get a copy of one of Cher’s excellent workout videos. Called “CherFitness,” the two workouts are both excellent and effective, but they are very different. The first title, “Cher Fitness: A New Attitude,” was released on CBS Fox Video in 1991. “Cher Fitness: Body Confidence” was released the following year after the massive success of the first title. Both videos have been released on DVD in the UK, but United States fans will have to settle for the old VHS tapes unless they have a multi-region DVD player.
Perhaps your resolutions have to do with bringing out the singer, actress, or artist within you. Rely on Cher for inspiration there as well. When taking singing lessons, take along some of Cher’s sheet music. She has a deep contralto vocal range, but her songs may work for you no matter what your range is. Also, watch some of her best performances for inspiration before your own audition; her own performance in “Moonstruck” earned her an Academy Award.
