Relax, Refresh, Recharge for the New Year

Relax, Refresh, Recharge for the New Year

Dec 24, 2019

Feeling a little wound up? The holidays will do that — all that food, navigating the complexities of family and friends, graciously accepting and giving gifts, working around school schedules and work schedules … This season usually ends up becoming much less “White Christmas” and more “completely and utterly exhausting and overwhelming.”

But it’s over. You made your lists and checked them twice. Handed out the gifts you thoughtfully selected for everyone from your best friend to your grandmother. Let’s not forget the food that you have had your fill of. Now it’s time to sit back and rest, relax and recharge just in time for a new year and a new decade — 2020. 

Wondering how to recharge for the year? At Hibbett | City Gear, we’ll help you reach your New Year goals without the stress … and we’ll give you some comfy, cozy ideas along the way. 

Just Sleep

The most refreshed you is the most rested you. Studies have shown that getting the right amount of Z’s every night helps keep you less stressed, alleviates health issues and boosts your immune system. It also keeps you on top of your game (whether that is on the court, classroom or boardroom) being well rested allows you to be a sharp thinker and even better problem-solver. Even if you get the right amount of rest you may still need your caffeine fix. For that Hibbett | City Gear has you covered with our Presse By Bobble Coffee & Tea Maker that allows you to make the perfect cup of coffee or tea on the go in just 3 minutes.


Get a jump start on National Unplug Day (March 1) and turn your phone off or on do not disturb. Unplugging from technology has serious benefits when it comes to your mental health. Not being confronted with all the online clutter from the news or social media is a great way for you to recharge and reduce some unneeded stress. There is no need to delete accounts, just turn them off and put on your favorite Ray-Bans and head outside. 

Move Your Body

Did you know that a quick 10 to 20-minute workout can give you an energy boost that will last longer than an energy drink? That is why moving your body makes our list as a great way to recharge. While we love a good HIIT workout, the key to recharging comes from simply moving your body. From a walk around the block or a dance party in your living room finding the time to move your body is easy and doesn’t require a membership. Now that the place is secure you have to have the right outfit to get the job done. Something like this adidas jacket would be the perfect top layer for your workout because who doesn’t want to look good while they feel good.

Drink Water

The key to looking relaxed, refreshed and recharged all comes down to a few extra ounces of water. This tasteless stuff is liquid gold with uses that are more than quenching your thirst. We know we sound like your mother, but drink plenty of water. Drinking water makes a difference in your workouts, your mood and your skin, too. The best wat to stay on top of your hydration is to make sure you always have a few cups with you. With Hibbett | City Gear’s Nathan Chroma Steel 25 oz Bottle you will have more than enough for you to reach your hydration goals.

Prioritize Your Do’s and Your Don’ts

Sure, we all have our to-do lists, but make a list of things you don’t want to do, too. It’s okay to say “no” and it never needs an explanation. Put yourself first when you can. If it’s you spending the day and watching your favorite show or you splurging on something from our launch calendar prioritizing you is the most important part of getting relaxed, refreshed and recharged for the New Year.

Up the Cozy Factor

The Danish and the Norwegians called it “hygge,” this idea of cozy, comfort, contentment. As you hunker down during this chilly new year, here are a few items that’ll help you achieve a hygge vibe: 

  1. Get back to basics in The North Face Men’s Bombay Insulated Jacket or The North Face Men’s Bearinda Hoodie. Both are simple yet stylish, the jacket and the hoodie come with plenty of insulation to keep you toasty. 
  2. What’s the coziest material you can think of? How about a fuzzy sherpa-style fleece? Even if football season is over, basketball season is just beginning, so cheer on your team in a cozy ivory fleece with your team’s logo, like these PressBox Women’s Quarter-Zip Fleece.
  3. Relax and get cozy in these plush throwbacks Nike Women’s Sportswear Heritage Jacket and Nike Women’s Sportswear Heritage Plush Pant for comfort and style.
  4. Your feet need heat. That’s why we’re huge fans of these always-warm crew-length Fireside Adult Aztec Moose Socks. Perfect for all genders! 
  5. Whether lifting weights or going out for a jog, do it in comfort and style with Nike Men’s Sportswear Tech Fleece Jogger. The pants’ fleece fabric keeps you warm and moves with you. 

Cheers to a new year and a new decade! At Hibbett | City Gear, we’re excited to make 2020 the best year yet!
