Watching the ball drop, blasting corks off Champagne bottles, dancing the night away as crowds roar around you—these are all exciting ways to celebrate the entrance of a new year. But the days leading up to New Year's Eve should look a little quieter. Consider this a period to reflect on the year that's passed and plan fresh intentions.
The new year is a time to create a clean slate mentally, physically, and spiritually. A time to let go of the “old you," honor it for all it has done, and push forward feeling refreshed and renewed. Give these rituals a try this week and wake up January 1 feeling motivated to make 2017 your best, most authentic year yet.
