3 Mindful Tips for Ringing in the New Year

It’s been an unusual year – COVID 19 in the early months of 2020 set the tone for the entire year.  For most of us it changed our daily routine in terms of where we work, if we get to work at all, and who we see and how much time we spend in public spaces.  Many of us are feeling the pressure and with the added stress of the holidays, it’s become a bit much.  But guess what, friends?  The year is coming to a close and we can be grateful that we’ve made it through – together.  I’m looking forward to 2021 with love in my heart and gratitude for each one of you, for my family and friends, colleagues and associates.  We’re all here, doing the best we can and for me, the new year represents great anticipation for healing, happiness, and a commitment to kindness & humility.  It’s true, we tend to appreciate what we DO have much more – when suddenly we don’t have it anymore.


Here are 3 things we can do to close out 2020 and welcome 2021.


  1. Let go and let love.  That’s right.  Some things are beyond our control, so just let go of them, one by one.  Do this symbolically by writing what you want to “let go” of and then toss it in a lit backyard firepit, fireplace or simply shred it!
  2. Make a list.  Jot down all that you want to accomplish in the coming year.  Set the intention to put your best foot forward – that means taking steps toward making it happen, as we know that intention without action is useless.
  3. Say “thank you” – for all that you’ve learned this year and how it will carry you into 2021 with eyes wide open and the knowledge you need for staying healthy, happy and safe.
