The two holidays have no historical connection and people celebrate them on different dates. These two festivals do have one main thing in common: they celebrate the most important women in our lives, our dear mothers. But that was not always the case. Originally, daughters who worked far from home had Mothering Sunday in UK as a day off to visit family and “mother” church. Today, it is a day for all children to show appreciation for their mothers and give them flowers, cards, and heartfelt Mother’s Day gifts.

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.
