Happy New Year! Most of us are fortunate to be entering 2022 in a more positive place than 2021, meaning this New Year is a tempting opportunity to reflect, take stock, and make changes that will help us become the best versions of ourselves. However, for many people, New Year’s Resolutions can be a tough act to keep up, with an astonishing 90% fallen by the wayside by mid-February.

To really take care of ourselves in the New Year, psychologists advise we should focus on making small positive changes. Focussing on how we positively interact with others or changing our inner voice can help cultivate positivity and improve overall mental health.

Here are the top five expert-recommended tips to give you a head start to better mental health in the next 12 months: 1. Practice gratitude. 2. Keep a journal. 3. Move that body. 4. Unplug. 5. Nourish friendships.

So, armed with your wellness brain hacks, you’re ready to step into a positive 2022. But remember, this isn’t about passing some goal, it’s about small steps to bolster your mental wellbeing, and make any resolutions you might want to pick a win:win situation.
