1) Its ok to stay home.
We all look for the ultimate experience, party, person and night out at New years Eve, but in reality, it can be the toughest night out. Restaurants and bars are expensive, it’s difficult to get taxi’s, public transport is full, and there are crowds everywhere. People are intoxicated, and it can be harder to have a regular night out.
2) Count your drinks.
Most people are surpirsed at how many drinks they actually consume once they start counting them. It is New Years Eve, so it may be the night to observe and set a new precedent for your drinking in 2015 to drink less.
3) Drink water
Sounds boring, everyone says it, but actually, it is a great way to reduce your alcohol and stay in control of your night and your feelings. Alternate your drinks by buying a water every time you but an alcoholic drink and you’ll slow things down.
4) Focus on New Year’s Day
There’s nothing better than waking up on New Years Day feeling great about the year ahead, and the less you drink, the better you will feel. Focus on a morning swim, walk or ride and you’ll have a great incentive to stay low key on new years eve.
5) Reduce your expectations
So many of us go out expecting to meet the person of our dreams, or have the night of our life on new years eve, but it’s not that easy. Take five minutes to think about the wonderful things you do have in your life. The people, experiences, achievements and moments. There’s a new year ahead to make of your life what you wish.
