Lunar New Year is upon us, Indy. 🏮
2023 is the Year of the Rabbit (or the Year of the Cat in Vietnam). In Chinese culture, the Year of the Rabbit symbolizes longevity, peace, and prosperity — this year is predicted to be a year of hope.
Look at longevity as it relates to your career. This year is a good time to focus on professional development and advancement, so take advantage of networking opportunities like joining Young Professionals of Central Indiana or check out Indy Chamber for business resources.
This year is a great time to take up a new hobby or creative outlet that interests you. We suggest a pottery class at Yellow Door Ceramics Studio because the rabbit is also associated with creativity and artistic talents.
Take the theme of peace and focus on taking care of yourself this year. Try Sauna Social to experience the health benefits of using a sauna or try a sound bath at Epicenter-Indy on Friday, Jan. 27 from 7-8 p.m.
Today’s issue was written by Nicole.
Editor’s pick: The other day, I went out of my comfort zone and tapped into my creativity by taking a beginnerspottery class at Get Dirty Ceramics at the Murphy Arts Center in Fountain Square. It was really fun to try something I’ve never done before — and now I can’t wait to go back and paint my creations.
