The New Years Day Dreaded Hangover. Avoiding Blowing It #241.

New Years

If You Are Like Many Around The World You Might Be Waking Today A Little Worse For The Wear With The Dreaded New Years Day Hangover.

It’s funny how we will make resolutions for big changes but set ourselves up for defeat on day one. We stay up all night ring in New Years with other with friends and strangers. And in that festive mood we over indulge. Handicapping us for the next day. The actual beginning of the new year and the first day of our newly committed resolutions.

New Years

It’s not just the hangover from drinking that gets you either. If you are like many, you go to bed at a reasonable hour most nights. Staying up past 12 is uncommon and when you do, you throw your body off routine. Now you get the poor sleep hangover and you don’t even need to drink for that to happen.

Not everyone does the traditional late night ring in the new year. There are some that may have been very responsible. Went to bed early and celebrated the New Years morning with a great physical activity or a creative art endeavor that they vowed to themselves to complete. That is probably the best way to start off any new year plans of change. Put your best foot forward immediately. If you have change in mind you have to be that change always.

Whatever it is you want, you have to commit to that long before you set out on a festive night. So that when you get to that festive evening your habits and conviction are stronger then the urge to derail yourself. That being said New Years can be a tremendous amount of fun for some. I’m not insinuating don’t enjoy it. Just be conscientious of what you are doing to yourself in particular settings. Especially if you’re trying to make changes.

One specific day for a resolution is nonsense anyway and difficult to maintain no matter who you are. If you want change it takes re-commitment on a daily basis so everyday turns into a new new years resolution. So specific dates don’t actually matter. January 1st, February 6th, May 20th none of it matters its all the same commitment if you are serious. And over indulging in anything before these arbitrary dates will set you up for defeat. However you celebrate welcome to 2020. Lets make it an amazing year.

Blowing It Scenario #27-Hallmark Holiday’s (Specifically Valentines Day)

Valentine’s Day is One Of Those Forced Made Up Holidays.

If you love someone, then love that someone every single day. We don’t need a holiday for it. Valentine’s day plays a role in countless hours of unneeded stress throughout the day and week leading up to it. You have to find yourself a Valentine, if you don’t already have one. Then you have to get that special someone gifts so they will still love you, right? And by no means don’t get the wrong thing. What kind of message would that send? That you no longer love them? That you don’t care? That you’re moving on? Or is it the opposite. Is the message that you love them too much? That you care about them too much? I mean, whoa, ease back hotshot, your smothering them.

In all this madness, you are still require to get them something, because clearly the best way to show love is through the purchase of material goods. Nothing says I love you, like balloons that say “I Love You.” Held up by a teddy bear who’s also holding chocolates and jewelry. That beautiful gesture is sure to get you the love you crave. There will be no withholding in the bedroom tonight. You nailed that gift perfectly. Or did you? There is just so many forced assumption that can be made through failing to get the right gift for the right someone on this “holiday.” So by now you’re starting to feel this added stress on yourself of. Did I buy the right thing? Is he or she going to enjoy what I got them? Or will they find it unsatisfactory? A foolish attempt at trying to please the one you love.

I can only imagine what one goes through on a day like this, who wants to celebrate, but has no one to celebrate with. What a kick to the nether region that must be. Dating apps all of the world must be experiencing massive surges in traffic, as their customers swipe frantically to find their prince or princess charming on a day like Valentines Day. Oh what a magically evening you’ll get to have with a complete stranger, that inevitably climaxes in coitus. Because, who knows, they just might your future Mr. or Mrs. Right. How could this not be the one? You met on Valentines day, the day of love. But in actuality, more often then not, the date will end in them never calling again. At least you had that one magnificent evening together. Ah, Valentine’s day success.

Now that I have my cynical side out of the way. I, in all honesty, really enjoy these holiday’s. Hallmark Holidays are a great way to break up possible monotony from day to day life, and we all need that from time to time. Plus, I’m married and I love doing things for my wife. We don’t feel the need to go all out with some grand gesture proclaiming our love from the mountain tops. We already love each other very much and let each other know every day. We feel if you and your partner agree not to put too much emphasis on the day. You can both enjoy a fun little stress-free holiday and come out of it happier for being able to spend the day with the one you love. I do understand, that for those of you who are single, you probably hated this last paragraph. How could you not? It is, by all means, Valentine’s Day. Happy Valentine’s Day.
