16 Super Chill Ways To Reset Yourself For The New Year

Let's leave 2016 in the past, please.

1. Go for a walk.

2. Netflix and chill out.

3. Re-watch your favourite childhood movie.

TriStar Pictures

There's something so comforting in curling up on the couch and watching a movie that was a huge part of your childhood. Even if you've seen Matilda 100 times, and you know each line off by heart, it will still remind you of watching it back when you were a kid and you dreamed of being able to move a cereal box with your eyes.

4. Do some colouring in.

Colouring-in may have really enjoyed its heyday last year, but that doesn't mean it's not still a good activity. Ditch the boring floral patterns and cityscapes you're used to, and get a book that caters to your interests. You can get this meme one here, a Harry Potter one here, or a sweary one here.

5. Read a book.

6. Meditate.

7. Go people-watching.

8. Get crafty.

9. Train your brain.

10. Test out a new recipe.

11. Clean and re-organise your bedroom.

12. Get loaded and watch funny YouTube videos.


Let's be honest, videos of people falling over and running into things will always be funny. But you know what makes it better? Wine. Lots of wine. So settle in with your wine glass and popcorn, grab your laptop and spend your night with funny cats and unlikely animal friends. It's even better alone because there's no one there to judge you when you drunkenly snort-laugh.

13. Write.

14. Go to a museum or art gallery.

15. Hang out with an animal for a day.

16. Get into a podcast.
