How to Be Happier in The New Year

09 Jan

It’s hard to disagree that New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start. It’s that time of year when we are all motivated to zero in on personal goals and shake the things up in all aspects of life. But unfortunately, according to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, less than 10% of people actually keep their New Year resolutions. We often set goals which are either too ambitious or too restrictive to maintain in the long term. These unrealistic plans are very hard to stick with throughout the year and most of them don’t last more than a month. Another problem is that in pursuit of fulfilling our New Year resolutions we often forget the ultimate goal: our personal happiness. Here to help you is our guide to how to be happier in the New Year.

Independence Day in Ukraine

On August 24th the bright blue and yellow colors of the Ukrainian flag will decorate the streets of all cities big and small across Ukraine. Also known as ‘День незалежності України’ (Den’ Nezalezhnosty Ukrainy’), this holiday is officially called Ukraine’s Independence Day.

To this day, Independence Day in Ukraine is celebrated with great pomp. Ukrainians have always had their own culture and language, but for centuries were dominated by Russia, Poland, Turkey and other countries. Because of this, the holiday carries extra significance, allowing Ukrainians to express their love for a country ruled by and for them.
