This New Years’ Eve, Start January Refreshed, Instead of Hung Over

By Rachel Puryear

Happy New Years’ Eve! Tonight, we welcome in 2022. Let it be a prosperous year with love, fun, and purpose.

If you want to celebrate the holiday, but the idea of drinking and partying all night does not appeal to you; here’s a suggested alternative way to New Years’ Eve that will leave you feeling refreshed and energized when you wake up on January 1, instead of hung over and exhausted.

This year, try meditating on New Years’ Eve, instead. My family and I have done this for many years, and it is always a great way to finish up the year, and ring in the new one. Usually, several group meditation events have been available to the public in many different cities and towns (generally free of charge, though donations are appreciated). You can search in your local area, although for the past couple of years Covid has impacted in-person gatherings.

Nonetheless, if you cannot find a group event or you just feel like staying at home, there are also plenty of virtual meditations available. Insight Timer is a free app with plenty of free guided meditations available, or a timer that you can customize and use to meditate on your own or with your loved ones.

Enjoy! Wishing you plenty of meditational insights, and a happy New Year! See you all soon in 2022. 🙂
