It’s officially time for the start of a new, exciting year. It's the universe's reset button, which gives you the chance to turn over a fresh, new page. And though you might spend a lot of time worrying about what you're wearing on New Year's Eve, which party you're going to, or who your midnight kiss may be with, New Year's Day is a day for reflection, relaxation, and manifestation. It's a day when you can appreciate where you've been and express gratitude for the past year, and make plans for where you want to go in the year ahead. After a fun New Year’s Eve, take the next day to set those intentions for the next 365 days. If you're holding off on your "Hello 2022" post until Jan. 1, here are some New Year's Day captions for Instagram to get you started.

Your pic of choice might be one at your New Year's Eve party with your sparkly dress on and champagne flute in hand, or you might ask your roomie to take a pic of you curled up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa on New Year's Day. Either way, you'll want your followers to know that you're ready to take on whatever the new year might have in store for you with one of these New Year’s Day captions
