For many, a new year brings hope—hope for the future and for a better year than the last. A new year can also bring anticipation for what’s ahead. Perhaps there’s a new adventure to look forward to. Or maybe we have goals for this year and look ahead to their completion. For some, it is the gift of relief- relief that the last year is over. What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.

Some people will never. Some things will never change. Change is never easy, but always possible. Often, when we consider our expectations for the new year, we tend to plan for and look forward to good things. We anticipate fun activities, new experiences, and increased blessings. We set goals and make plans to attain the things and experiences we’ve long desired. We resolve to make things better and improve ourselves and our lives. If today I look forward to seeing the new year, I myself have set some goals for myself. I have planned a few things which according to me need to be changed with time and think more in a productive manner. I want to stop watching Netflix or prime or any OTT platforms.

Regular physical activity has numerous health benefits. Start small by doing an exercise you enjoy for at least 10 minutes at a time. Children and teens should get 60 or more minutes of physical activity per day, and adults should get two hours and 30 minutes per week.  Don’t feel pressure to run a marathon or become a gym rat.  Take a walk after dinner or play a game of catch or basketball. Keep experimenting until you find a physical activity that you enjoy. The most important thing to remember about exercise is to have fun!

Self-care doesn’t have to be elaborate or time consuming. It can simply mean taking a bath every week, attending your favorite weekly yoga class, preparing a healthy meal for yourself, going for a walk in nature, or getting an extra hour of sleep.
