Happy New Year, for real

✅ Today’s tip: Prolong a fresh-start feeling by changing up your space.

Despite what the calendar claims, the first few weeks of January felt more like an extension of 2020 than the beginning of anything new — which made yesterday’s fresh-start energy all the more potent. To extend that energy, Ashley Abramson writes, try making a small adjustment to your home: decluttering your desk, moving your couch against a different wall, reorganizing your closet. These tweaks “can punctuate how you see episodes of time,” Abramson explains, jolting your mind into drawing a clearer line between before and after.
