14 Feel-Good Products Our Editors Are Using to Kick Off 2023 on a Positive Note
Personally, I find “fresh starts” to be a little daunting. They make me feel like I’m making a serious commitment to a new habit, and when I inevitably break that commitment — I know I will! — I’m going to feel like I let myself down. That’s why any time I want to change an old habit or start a new one, I prefer to get in the headspace of “positive notes.”
A positive note feels less consequential than a fresh start, although it can be just as impactful. Positive notes are more forgiving, because the phrase doesn’t suggest that I’m doing something wrong if I start, say, remembering to use my standing desk’s standing function, but then stop for two months. My note just reminds me that I have the option and willpower to treat myself more kindly, and even if I don’t heed that reminder every day, I can benefit from it when I do — with zero slacker’s guilt.
