It's easy to fall into that resolutions spiral this time of year, but we're not big fans of putting unnecessary pressure on ourselves—or anyone else. That's why we're focusing less on "new year, new you" and more on "new year, same you" vibes. There's no need for a whole-person overhaul just because it's January, but there's hardly a bad time to find something fun to do or try a new hobby that can distract you from any drama 2023 has in store. Check out 10 of our favorite ideas for filling downtime (they're all price dropped through January 9).
