How to Start the New Year Right
Last year was one for the books. We all struggled with different challenges in 2020. Whilst the new year has just begun, it is now that we must make the choice to approach it gently. 2021 is full of potential—and so are we.
Pick up new habits
Resolutions for the new year can appear quite daunting. It’s a tradition that plenty choose not to partake in. No matter your preference, the beginning of 2021 feels a bit like wiping the slate clean. You don’t have to make grand changes along with the beginning of the new year.
However, picking up a few habits—the ones that seem manageable to you—is never a bad thing. You could try:
- Go for a quick walk during lunch or as an afternoon 15-minute break from work;
- Fill up your water bottle hourly, trying to drink more water is half of the battle;
- Easier said than done, but try to go to bed a bit earlier;
- Wear sunscreen, every day—and moisturize;
- Support local businesses whenever you have the choice to do so;
- And schedule some downtime. We schedule every part of our day, why not write some relaxation in there!
This year, opt to make a few small changes instead of trying to change everything.
Treat yourself to a massage
After last year, it’s no surprise that many of us could use a helping hand to rid ourselves of the accumulated stress and tensions. A massage is an excellent way to relieve anxiety and start the new year gently.
A relaxation massage is perfect for those seeking to eliminate muscle stiffness, get better sleep, create an overall sense of well-being and reduce stress and anxiety. The end goal is simple: the help you feel your best both physically and emotionally.
An intensive massage is ideal for everyone whose lifestyle changed in the past year. This massage helps target the fibres of muscle tissue at a deep level, which is perfect for professionals with repetitive or static work, as well as those with an active lifestyle. Your massage therapist will use their expertise to relieve muscle tension, improve flexion, restore vitality of movement and encourage circulation.
Let it go
2020 was challenging and whilst we’re not out of the woods quite yet, we have to continue moving forward—together. It’s easy to dwell on the past, find ways to look to the future.
Put together a list of things you wish to leave in 2020, and another of what you want to find in 2021. Focus on the latter, big and small, and try to find it.
Look forward to what the new year may bring.
No matter how you choose to start and approach the new year of 2021, we sincerely hope that it brings you more joy and tranquility than 2020.
