When the holiday season comes to an end and all the festivities are over, you’re left with a new year. This can be a time to set in place new things to learn and do or it can be a time of consolidation of things you’re already passionately pursuing. Another alternative might be to simply contemplate where you’ve reached in life so far. Whatever your preferred approach to the new year, it’s nice to start feeling refreshed and focused, ready to get back into things you’re working on or to get started on new things.
If you’re not in the habit of relaxing, why not start the new year with a resolution to add this important activity (or lack of activity) to your life from now on.
What sorts of relaxing opportunities appeal to you? Not everyone agrees that the same things are relaxing. Some people find adrenalin-packed activities relaxing while others would rather read a good book. Relaxation might mean a weekly bath by candlelight with big bubbles, a massage, yoga or meditation and the like. It’s your choice, just so long as it relaxes you. You will feel good as a result.
Whatever else you choose to do, start off with some time for you!
