Generally speaking, 2016 has felt like a tough old year but there have been some incredible moments that I will never forget. So rather than drowning sorrows on the last drops prosecco I wanted to talk about the small positives that can keep us all going and recover from the year that was.
LIVE IN THE MOMENT
This isn't meant to be some cheesy statement that many make it out to be. It means to be open to new ideas, places, friends, adventures that will make 2017 the best year ever! Take a leap and be fearless with what's out there. I would never have ran off the side of a mountain 2,000 ft up strapped to a parachute across the other side of the world if i didn't just live a little. You might not be jumping off a mountain but it can be applied to anything; changing jobs, going travelling or just seeing friends for that drink you've been putting off for a while.
FIND A HAPPY PLACE
Whether you're embracing the world of Hygge or exploring a new city, find the place that will make you happy and offer a calm retreat if 2017 follows on from its predecessor.
POP THE BOLLY
Dry January maybe around the corner but when you've lived through a year like 2016, who would be willing to give up alcohol altogether? I'm certainly not advising everyone to be drunk throughout 2017 but a tipple or two won't hurt to enhance a renewed sense of hope and positivity.
Let me know how you're recovering for the best year ahead.
