Hope 2022 was a great year for you. Even if you had some setbacks, the good news is the year is over now. Be thankful that you survived. And, take a moment to think about how you can ring in 2023 by making better strides for yourself.
Saying Hello to New Year’s Eve
For many people, New Year’s Eve is the biggest celebration. It has earned itself this reputation for many reasons. People enjoy spending time with their friends & family as they say goodbye to the old and hello to the new.
But what are you considering doing? One way is to picture the usual – massive parties, clinking glasses, lots of eating and drinking, and then waking up with a hangover. The other option is to avoid all the hype and look for healthier substitutes.
Celebrating New Year’s Eve in a Healthier Way
Let’s talk about healthy alternatives this year.
Regardless of what others think, it’s possible to celebrate New Year’s Eve in a healthy and memorable way instead of drinking the night away. Thus, feeling better and healthier the next day.
Below is a list of some ideas we’ve curated to get you started:
1. Invite your buddies around for a movie
It can turn out to be dangerous if you are out on the roads on New Year’s eve. Instead, you can celebrate this event while lying on your sofa or bed. (I’m definitely not going to recommend watching TV – it ain’t good for you!)
Instead, you can go with some New Year’s movies you’ve always wanted to see. You can also download or rent any comedy movie. Studies show that watching a comedy movie or show can have significant benefits for your mental well-being and immune system.
So what are you waiting for? Invite some of your close friends over and make an amazing night of it. Make sure to offer your loved ones some delicious snacks that can give the body a boost by providing fiber, nutrients, and antioxidants. To top it off, try to fill your fridge with healthy beverages so you can sit back relax, with people you admire, and have the best experience.
2. Have some screen-free fun with your family
Family bonding is vital to your health and long life. Many researchers have shed light on this phenomenon like the findings of the journal Plos Medicine. This is important if you want to give your new year a healthy start. But how to group your entire crew so they can get themselves off their screens for a few hours?
Board games have the solution for you. In board games, there are many options to get your family and friends involved. From classic games like Chess to more contemporary favorites such as Kids Against Maturity, you can choose the best family board game for creating long-lasting memories.
3. Run your way out of 2022 and into 2023
Participate in a midnight run. It’s a much healthier option than binge drinking. Imagine a horror concept and run for it as if 2022 is chasing you.
How to join the runners? There are many ways to do so. Such as through local parks which usually arrange such events. You will find a lot of festive joggers there. But even if you aren’t aware of any such events nearby, you might organize your own. Invite your friends and family who are interested in running or looking to create any similar New Year resolutions. Ask them why not give our passions a flying start on the big day itself.
4. Hit the dance floor
Do you love dancing as most people do? Great. So, when the clock is just about to strike midnight, skip all the chatter, it’s time to hit the dance floor. Remember the festivities can go on night long, helping you get rid of hundreds of calories you’ve been looking to burn off.
Sure thing, you can hit the dance floor by visiting a club or bar. But if this ain’t your thing, there are several good alternatives too. Like if you can dance at home with some family or friends, it will save you a lot of bucks as well. Don’t worry if you’ve no one to dance with this New Year. You can bust a solo. But, don’t forget to dance as if no one is watching. Ah, you won’t have to stress about stepping on someone else’s toes.
5. Start with a gorgeous sunrise view
The world is about to enter a new year. What could be more ideal than starting the brand new year with a breathtaking view of when the first sunlight cracks? This is an amazing option for someone who wants to start New Year in a healthy way but also doesn’t want to stay indoors.
Grab your better half, a friend, or a family member, and go for an early morning walk. Experience the first rays of the first sunrise. You can also invite all your friends and make it a big sunrise gathering.
6. Treat yourself to a special ski holiday
New Year is that magical time of the year when you might want to stay on the slopes. This is another fabulous way to stay healthy, stay fit, and stay away from everything in order to celebrate New Year’s eve.
Just imagine yourself spending quality time with your friends or family by the fire. While the snow-covered mountains are right outside your chalet.
Most ski resorts often host festive parties for New Year so there will be no pressure on you to arrange that ultimate New Year’s Eve. With so many holiday activities happening in the resort, you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.
7. Throw an elegant pampering party
Get your healthy intentions off to a great start by throwing a nice pamper party. It’s better than the usual buffet and drinks, etc. You can get together with your friends at a place of pampering and enjoy a soothing relaxing treatment or massage and start the New Year in style.
Can’t afford it? You can arrange this party within the confines of your own home by hiring a beauty therapist. You can also plan to buy some manicure kits and face masks that could provide your friends with some beauty treatments. Prepare healthy food for your visitors’ refreshments like vegetable crudités and dips, and offer them smoothies that are good for health.
Until next time…
Well, that concludes our list of the top healthy ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve while still having fun. Whether you choose one of the above options or go with something else like visiting an amusement park or enjoying small-town life. The ideas could be many. Remember, when everyone else will be nursing their terrible hangover the next morning, you will be starting the New Year in a fresh mood and a healthier way.
