The new year starts Monday. Resolution makers, you’ve got until tomorrow, Sam declares

A January 21 calendar with the 4th circled in blue

This year January 1 was a Friday. Nothing good happens on a Friday. Fridays start the weekend not the new year.

If you’re a resolution maker, especially if you’re a resolution maker who has already gone off the rails, may I suggest that Monday is when the new year really begins?

You can start anew tomorrow.

In past years I’ve claimed January 2 as the start and said that January 4th is the new January 1st.

You can pick any day that works really.

You’ve got lots of choice. The first day of the new year is arbitrary anyway.

Why last year Catherine declared that Feb 9 was her January 1. Why? Read about it here.

I’m not a big resolution maker but I love fresh starts. Predictably I love mornings, a new day. I love Mondays, a new week at work. I love September and the start of a new school year. January 1 hasn’t loomed large but I like the chance to start again.

I love the smell of possibility in the morning.

Please don’t think you’ve failed and need to wait until 2022.

I’m doing Yoga With Adriene’s 30 Day series Breath. I liked today’s advice, on Day Two, each inhale can be a new beginning. There are lots of new moments and chances to start anew.
