Take 1: If you intend on fully celebrating the holidays

This alcohol aerobics guide from My Body+Soul will come in handy on Monday. It tells you exactly how much cardio you need to do in order to burn off your holiday drink of choice. Hint: Sparkling white wine is your healthiest bet! 

Take 2: If you're planning a post-holiday Netflix binge

Fill your queue with all of the movies and TV shows leaving Netflix in January 2017. Between Sixteen Candles, Superstar, Saved by the Bell, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and more, it's safe to assume you'll be busy next week.

Take 3: If you're constantly craving Girl Scout Cookies

PSA: Girl Scout Cookies–inspired gum will actually exist in 2017. Coming in two legendary flavors, Caramel Coconut and Thin Mints, the limited-edition gum will celebrate the 100th year of Girl Scout Cookie magic.

Take 4: If you still haven't wrapped your holiday gifts

Take note from Lauren Conrad, and dress up your holiday packages with greenery, ribbon, and ornaments. Check out her step-by-step guide to chic wrapping before you buy your supplies.

Take 5: If your mind is already on the New Year

Consider planning a glam New Year's Day brunch to start 2017 off right. Our friends over at Brit+Co have every detail planned for you, from the chic light pink color palette to the DIY leather napkin rings.
