Now, we know a lot of people had a slightly slower start to 2022 than they originally would’ve hoped. With COVID cases tearing through the country and endless days spent in isolation, it might not have been the best start to the New Year for you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t reset this February and give 2022 another go…
Failed resolutions and grey January days getting you down? Don’t let them! The hardest month of the year is over in just a few short days and that still leaves 11 wonderful months for you to create a new you. Just because it’s nearly the second month of 2022, doesn’t mean you can’t make a fresh set of resolutions, reset and tackle the year head on. Check out today’s blog for our top 5 tips for resetting yourself in time for February, ready to kickstart the rest of 2022.
1. Phone a Friend
If you’re feeling in need of a reset, it’s always worth remembering that a problem shared is a problem halved. Calling a friend to unload some of your extra stresses is a great way to clear your head, reconnect and kickstart February positively.
Feeling like a little more connection could be good? Why not phone a friend and arrange a date for this weekend. Catching up over a coffee or one of our Mocktail Cans is the perfect way to share your problems with your friend and get a new lease of life for the coming months- remember, a problem shared is a problem halved!
2. Get physical
We’re all sick of getting told to exercise when we’re feeling a little blue, but really it does solve so many problems. But we’re not expecting you to run a marathon just because you’ve been cooped up all January, even something as simple as getting outside for some fresh air is a great way to get physical.
Thanks to the endorphins released during aerobic exercise, it can be powerful in easing anxiety (1). Better yet, a recent study by Harvard T.H. School of Public Health showed running for 15 minutes or walking for 60 minutes every day can ease depression by 26% (1).

3. Pamper yourself
Who doesn’t love a pamper session when they’re not feeling their best? There’s no easier way to show yourself some love by running a hot bubble bath, tucking into your favourite book and popping a facemask on. Taking time for some selfcare is the perfect way to unwind and help yourself reset, especially if you’ve had Covid or are just not feeling 100%!
4. Do a Detox

Ready to reset? Sometimes the best place to start is from the inside. Our lives are always pretty non-stop, what with juggling work, socialising and staying healthy- things can get pretty hectic! That’s why practicing mindfulness is a great way to reconnect with yourself and prep for the coming months. According to the NHS, mindfulness is all about realigning your awareness of the world around you (2). Whether it’s just switching off all your technology, taking a break from work or treating yourself to a long winter walk, remember to make the time to absorb what’s around you and allow your body and your mind to reset.
