From the article…..
For many people, New Year’s Eve is one of the most stressful nights of the year as they are under the pressure to execute out-of-the-ordinary, over-the-top plans, find the perfect person to kiss at midnight and welcome the new year with an enthusiasm that we hope will foreshadow the next 364 days.
The HuffPost Healthy Living editors have pointed out 13 things that just aren’t worth stressing about this New Year’s Eve, so that people can welcome 2013 with less stress.
1. Not having plans – You don’t need to plan to enjoy. Ordering takeout, buying champagne and watching the ball drop in your warm living room can actually be fun, especially if it’s with the people you love, they said.
2. Being alone – Just because you’re solo for one night doesn’t mean you’re doomed to a lifetime of loneliness. Don’t give New Year’s Eve any more significance than any other night of the year.
3. Staying up past midnight – Sleep early so that when you wake up you can send all your loved ones happy New Year texts in the morning.
4. The extra few pounds you’re carrying from the holidays – Don’t think much about it because everyone has it. Let it go, then resolve to resume your healthy lifestyle in 2013.
5. Having no one to kiss at midnight – It’s better than having the wrong person.
6. Spending hundreds of dollars – If money’s tight, don’t blow a month’s (or more) worth of going-out money on one night. It’ll be over in a few hours.
7. Drinking champagne – Pick a drink you actually like, and enjoy.
