New Year's Eve can be a lot of pressure, trying to decide between events, groups of friends, and most desperately trying not to feel disappointed at your choice.


Whilst it’s important to remember that these pressures associated with choosing the best night don’t cause anything but stress and make things less fun, we’ve listed a few ways to enjoy the new year.

1. Hop into bed early

This has been a popular one for a lot of people over 25 for quite some time but is just as convenient for the younger generation.


Waking up fresh, well-rested and ready to take on 2022 is a great way to begin the year and requires no money, stress, or hangovers.


2. Stay home and celebrate traditionally

Whether it’s by eating 12 grapes for prosperity, wearing certain colours, or just enjoying the night with the people who mean the most to you, staying home for New Years Eve is one way to avoid social pressures, have a relaxing new year and avoid the crowds.


Streaming services that provide live New Years Eve Celebrations can make home full of an exciting atmosphere and still give you a chance to call family, and not have your toes stepped on in the clubs.


3. Be thankful

Whether it’s by writing out thank you cards to friends and family, journaling your gratitude, or just finding a little moment of the day to be thankful for, as you look towards a bright future - saying thanks on New Year's Eve will begin the new season on a positive note.


You can go around the table with family and friends saying something you’ve appreciated, or even show your thanks in food.
