Staying Positive During The New Year

By Elizabeth Impastato

Most of us are more than happy to put the unpredictable events of 2020 behind us.  The New Year brings with it a fresh start with new goals and hopes to improve health.  Common resolutions include balancing work with personal time.

Most worked from home and still are working from home in the effort to prevent complications of COVID-19.  If you gained extra pounds last year, diet and exercise might be on the top of your resolution list.

This year, staying positive during the new year is probably on the list somewhere under wellbeing or improve health.  Here’s few ways to think about improving your overall health this year.

Remember to enlarge your circle.  Reach out to elders by phone or computer to share stories and fun memories to lift spirits. Look for ways to challenge yourself by trying something completely new.  Setting aside structure and rules for time to be creative.  Getting creative with zoom parties this past year was popular, creative fun.

One way to stay positive while trying something creative and new is through art.  IMPASTATO GALLERY &  ART THERAPY offers private drawing lessons.  “Drawing Journey” is designed to work with advanced to beginners.  If you have always wanted to relax while being creative, the gallery is like an art-spa offering private painting lessons that work around your schedule.
