The NYE celebration has just passed a few days back, but I bet some of you are still lazing comfortably in your comfy bed after those fun times during the countdown seconds. Or, a little worse, you might be still trying to recover from a couple of drinks you had.
Well, we don’t judge! Whatever happened, happened! Full stop! After all, this is a new year: a moment of the beginning of the new cycle, filled with resolutions you wish to achieve on the next course of 365 days. Let’s make it count! Get off of the bed, do a quick stretching, take a fresh shower, and grab your coffee/tea.
Then, what’s next? Instead of staying home and doing nothing all day, we encourage you to spend some hours to do activities that will lift your mood at the beginning of the year. Here are some recommendations for us to get the most of your first day and first week on the year in Bali.
Take in Some Fresh Air
Blessed with the tropical climate, travellers can enjoy warm morning sunshine upon the skin, giving opportunities to spend the day outside. Moreover, the island has different landscapes that please everyone, either you are a beach or mountain person. Take a morning hike to Mount Batur or trek along with the calmest vibe of Sanur. Those who can’t stand off the beach, why not discover lesser crowd beaches?
If you are lucky enough to be together with all member of the family on this year’s holiday, this week is the only days left to cherish the moment of togetherness before everyone is preoccupied with school tasks or new projects at the company. Initiating an afternoon day out is one thing which everyone will thank later. Sign up for a day at the park or the zoo. If you happen to be a shopaholic, go to the malls or traditional markets.
Just in case you had overjoyed nights with friends and drank WAY too much, don’t let the hangover keeps you in bed all day. A better idea is to gather your willpower to move or ask a favour to your mates and find a fresh whole young coconut drink. That will help to recover yourself quickly.
Who doesn’t love to be pampered? Indeed, you will appreciate this one or two hours’ time spent at the spa when your body starts giving you pain. Rejuvenating the body and soul at the beginning of the year also delivers a good state for your overall well-being to tackle every challenge which will be coming ahead.
Having a ‘Me Time’ is crucial as you need a moment with yourself to planning and looking forward to the days ahead. No need to think about the past year, it is all happening to you for a reason or lesson, be thankful for it. Next is to engage your mind with a positive vibe.
