10 Best Things to Do on New Year's Eve to Ring in 2023 new year party games for adults
Hopefully, you had lots of ups in 2022. And, if you had some downs, we're glad the year is over so you can move on to bigger and better things in 2023. As you say goodbye to 2022 — whether it was lovely, awful, or a mixture of both — you should take time to celebrate the wins. A big one? No matter how it played out, you survived! With that in mind, take a moment to consider how you want to ring in the new year. There are obvious things to do on New Year's Eve, like going to a New Year's party, watching the ball drop on TV, or enjoying a delicious dinner with loved ones. What we hope you don't do, is pretend like it's just an ordinary day.
So, how should you say hello to 2023? We've rounded up a unique list of the best things to do on New Year's Eve to help you kick off your next 12 months around the sun on the perfect note. Before you make a choice and a plan for what to do on the day and who to spend your celebration with, take a moment to set your intentions for the upcoming year. What do you want to accomplish in the new year? What do you hope to master or overcome? What will fulfill you? Here are the best ideas of what to do to ring in 2023.
SET MINI RESOLUTIONS FOR THE COMING YEAR.
Take some time on New Year's Eve to jot down small tweaks you can make to your routine (let these easy resolution ideas inspire you) that will have a big impact on your life. Bite-size goals will be much easier to keep than the sweeping ones you may have made in years past. Hear that: This year you're starting with achievable wins, not impossible-to-keep promises!
A little strategizing will make staying on track even easier. After you identify a goal, break it down into the exact steps you’ll need to take in order to achieve it. Then, plan for what speed bumps you might encounter. For example, if you want to start running in the morning instead of at night, what usually prevents you from getting up early and how can you make it easier? Then it’s just a matter of tracking your progress, staying organized, and not forgetting to celebrate wins along the way.
WALK AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD WITH A SUITCASE.
In some Latin American cultures, it's a tradition to walk around the block with an empty suitcase on New Year's Eve to manifest travel and adventure in the year ahead! Alternatively, you can walk in and out of your front door a number of times while rolling one to symbolize how often you want to travel or place it in the middle of a room for anyone to run around.
FIND THE LESSONS IN 2022
Take stock of what challenges you faced this year. What did they teach you about yourself, your loved ones, or your community? Consider how what you've learned might help you in the future. Also, take time to reflect on which ideas, habits, and relationships held you back this year. Ask yourself how you can begin to lessen their presence in your daily life or let them go entirely.
TAKE A VIRTUAL CLASS TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.
With a little inventiveness, you can still learn a lot in the last few hours of the year. Take a gnocchi- or paella-making class. Support your local yoga studio by virtually meeting with friends for sun salutations. You can even take a cocktail-making class and whip up some celebratory holiday drinks.
MANIFEST YOUR GOALS.
Taking time on New Year's Eve to truly meditate and reflect on the year ahead is an excellent way to head into the new year with a focused, clear mindset. Try breaking your goals down by quarter, month, or even by week; you'll be surprised how much a little planning can help you grow your business, plan your dream vacation, or finish that book you've always wanted to write.
HAVE AN EARLY, OUTDOOR CELEBRATION.
Whether COVID is slowing down or ramping up, spending time outdoors does wonders for your psyche. Make plans to meet friends at a nearby park or go for a nice walk with a loved one.
WATCH A NEW YEAR'S EVE-THEMED MOVIE.
Sure, there’s a movie that's actually titled New Year’s Eve. But plenty of movies have excellent New Year's Eve scenes. When Harry Met Sally, for example, where the film's climactic scene takes place at a NYE party. About Time starts at a New Year's Eve party, too.

SPEND THE DAY ADVENTURING.
Hike, snowshoe, ski... Not only will you take in some nice scenes, but the fresh air will also help produce serotonin in your brain, which can help you maintain a healthy emotional state. And kicking off the year in a good mood sounds like the best omen for what's to come, right?
DRESS TO THE NINES.
You don't get done up often — especially if you've decided to take up working remotely indefinitely — so dressing up for a special occasion (2023!) could be really fun. Pull out your most fabulous pieces, or buy something new, so you can dress like a royal whether you're hitting a New Year’s party or cutting a rug in your own living room.
CALL A LOVED ONE.
Your friends and family probably helped you get through this year. Give them a call to say thank you, check in, swap stories, and make plans for 2023.
