Set yourself up for a successful new year with these healthy self-care habits.
Now that the new year is looming and the post-Christmas regret of too many sugar cookies has set in, the idea of hitting reset on some regrettable December decisions sounds especially appealing. After all, how else are you supposed to negate a month-long binge on eggnog, champagne and peppermint bark if not for a magical button that immediately eradicates all calories, shame and guilt? Unsurprisingly, no such button exists. (Trust us—we already checked Amazon.)
Some will argue that no new year is complete without a 31-day hiatus from all alcohol, but we’re here to tell you that dry January isn’t our thing, and it doesn't have to be yours. Whether you’ve got a family wedding in a few weeks or a monthly dinner date with your girlfriends that desperately calls for a bottle (or three) of bubbly, it’s completely acceptable if your social calendar won’t allow you to pass on the pinot this month. We get it, and that’s exactly why we rounded up five healthy New Year's resolutions that won’t require you to cork that cherished bottle of cabernet.
