And a Happy New Year

And a Happy New Year!

Gratitude & resolutions for 2023

New year is a joyous, exciting concept. Celebrating New Year’s Day with the biggest bash is only the 2nd trendiest thing one can do. (Creating a 2022 wrap-up reel is obviously the winner). But is it really necessary that it would be for everyone. For a lot of people it might be just another day. For others it may cause negative feelings like that of anxiety and sadness. However, everyone deserves to put effort into making each day of the new year – each new day, a nice one.


Gratitude is one of the best things that help us feel thankful, and thus happy about our life. Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It’s about focusing on what’s good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access. Feeling warm in the winter, because the sun peeked out from behind the clouds for 10 minutes can be something that makes you feel grateful. Doesn’t it? 

How to effectively use gratitude this year?

  • Create a “Gratitude journal”.
  • Write 2-5 things in it that you are thankful for, every night.
  • Even if the day was horrible, think of one or two things that kept you going till you got in bed.


New Year Resolution is a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year. Essentially, a resolution is something you will constantly be working toward, while a goal is specific and finite. Resolutions are made up of goals. While there is a difference between goals and resolutions, they are relevant and intertwined. Often, people put too much effort in fulfilling their resolutions in the first few weeks of the year. But do you remember how the tortoise won because they were slow & steady? Why don’t we implement the same when it comes to our New Year’s Resolutions? 

How can we effectively make & follow our New Year’s Resolution?

  • Just by not putting too much pressure on it.
  • Write down the resolutions on a paper and stick it where you can often see it.
  • Write affirmations on it as well, how not fulfilling them won’t mean failure. The trying  part is most essential.

We hope you feel well-rested today & have a beautiful year ahead!
