At long last, we're finally past all the drama and excitement of the holiday season. So, you might be feeling strongly tempted to just enjoy the little free time you have left lazing around the house and just doing nothing physically demanding.
Granted, you've more than earned the rest for yourself. However, there are a couple of fun things you could try out to usher in the New Year. As they say, “Start a journey how you intend to finish it.”
In many ways, starting a New Year is like going on a voyage, exploring things you've never done before. A great way to start this adventure would be to engage in fun, healthy and productive activities from the get-go!
Shake off all the ups and downs of the previous year, wipe that slate clean and get a refreshing new start!
If you're rearing to go now, here are a couple of awesome things you could do with your January 1st
Get Your DIY Groove On
What better time to get more hands-on than now? You don't have to go overboard. You could just start small.
What about holiday cookies? You could make your very own! Sounds a bit challenging, sure. However, it might turn out to be more fun than you imagined.
All you need to do to get started on this is to go online and pick any recipe you fancy and give it your best shot! It's the effort that counts.
Take That Road Trip
Set a fun, nearby destination for yourself and/or the family and just hit the road. There's nothing quite like throwing caution to the wind and seeing where the winding, open road takes you.
You get to bond with your loved ones or it could be the perfect opportunity for you to get that time alone to reflect on your goals for the New Year.
Rearrange Your Pantry
New Year, new look, right? Why not kick things off by giving your dear old pantry a makeover? You could start by first emptying the contents of that space and sorting through it all.
Do away with any expired products you discover, clean the shelves, top to bottom and then reorganize the useful items you're keeping to your taste!
Have A Movie Marathon
If you anticipate that this year will likely be a very busy one for you, now is the time to start earning your brownie points for when work will just have to take you away.
Get the family together and binge-watch any of the many New Year movies out there!
Write Out Your New Year Resolutions
This is an oldie but a goodie.
Writing out your resolutions, goals, hopes and dreams for the New Year is still an excellent way to kick things off.
Putting words to those aspirations can be a powerful incentive to help you achieve them. You can go one step further by adding the WHY to those resolutions.
That way, when the going gets tough, you can always go back to those resolutions and see clearly the reasons you made those promises to yourself in the first place.
Whether you'll be watching movies with the family or hitting the road, you could make this occasion even more memorable by planning your 2022 getaway vacation.
