It’s the last day of 2021 and it’s time to start planning ahead for the year to come. We understand the pressure a New Year can bring, and so we’ve put together all our insights about how to start 2022 the right way. With love from everyone at myza, let’s get ready to ring in the New Year!
Drinking More Water
Now, if we’re planning for the year ahead, we need to start off with basics. First – have you drunk enough water? Is drinking more on your list of goals? Well then let’s start off with that. If drinking water is somehow both boring and difficult for you, there’s an easy solution. At the start of every day, make up a big jug or bottle of water with mint or cut fruits or berries. You could even use a carafe, like this gorgeous Unison Ceramic Carafe in Mint from Schneid Studio. The fruit will add extra vitamins as well as a delicious taste to your water, making it easier to drink. Plus, making a little ritual around something otherwise boring helps to make it a fun and enjoyable part of your day.
New Year Energy
Have you been running out of energy lately? Especially in the winter time, it can be difficult to find the energy you sorely need to get through the day. Energy drinks can be helpful, but they often taste metallic, and are full of unknown chemicals. Zo Tea’s Morning Boost Tea is a delicious loose leaf tea designed to help you start your mornings right. This tea as the name suggests, has been expertly blended to help you prepare for the day ahead. It’s made with a delicate balance of energy-boosting, body-fuelling leaves such as mate green, nettle and dandelion, which are ideal for helping you loose weight and rise, as well as shine each day.
Rise and Shine in the New Year
Start every day right with this combination Zest SAD & Wake-Up Light from Lumie. This time of year means it is only light outside for a few hours at a time, which is part of what causes SAD, or Seasonal Affected Disorder. Zest is a combination product that functions as a wake-up light in the morning and provides bright light therapy when you need it during the day. Waking with light helps to regulate your sleep/wake cycle and has been shown to boost mood, energy and productivity levels for the rest of the day. If you’re not getting enough sunlight during the day, a top-up from Zest is a great alternative. Bright light is proven to put you in a better mood, boost alertness and help you feel more awake – you might find as little as 20 minutes is enough to recharge your batteries. If you’re not naturally a morning person, the wake-up light feature can help reset your circadian rhythms (internal body clock), so you feel brighter and more energetic first thing and more ready to sleep well at night.
Lighting a delicious smelling candle is one of life’s finest pleasures. Picking a scent that works for you is half the fun, and we have a lot to choose from, so we’ll be recommending two different delightful morning scents. The first is Mr Mullan’s Apothecary’s Hand Poured Candle in Aromatic Coffee, with a burn time of 40 hours. Hand poured using eco friendly soya wax, which comes from a sustainable source which is bio-degradable, and natural fibre wicks, the candle is good for your senses and the planet. This candle will fill your space with the delicious aromas of hot coffee, a perfect pick me up in a morning. For those who prefer a fresher scent, why not try this Eucalyptus + Peppermint Candle from SVAR:ØG? It’s made with a cooling and refreshing essential oil blend. The candle is stimulating for the senses and helps to clear the head and mind, perfect for a foggy winter morning.
