What does 2016 mean for you?

New YearEach year comes with new hopes and dreams, but the beginning of a year can also mean different things for different people. Take a look below for what 2016 may mean for you:

Leap Year

2016 is the next leap year, this means that 1 extra day is added to the calendar in February. So what does this mean? Well those born on February 29th are able to celebrate their birthday on their official birth date, as well as tradition stating it is the day women should propose to their loved one. 

Year of the monkey

The year 2016 will bring us in to the 9th animal in the Chinese calendar, making it the year of the wise monkey. Take a look below to find out if you were born in a previous year of the monkey:

  • 1956
  • 1968
  • 1980
  • 1992
  • 2004
  • 2016

People born during the year of the monkey often possess traits of being wise, enthusiastic, self-assured, sociable, innovative, jealous and sometimes slightly suspicious! When choosing lucky numbers it is best to choose numbers 1, 8 or 7 all of which help to bring luck to the monkey, whereas numbers to avoid include 2, 5 and 9.

New Year Resolution

Each year many of us choose to make a New Year resolution. Whether it is a personal resolution or one you make with a loved one or friend, it’s important to start the year with a resolution you can achieve. Take a look below on our top tips on making a great New Year’s resolution.

  • We advise choosing a New Year resolution with a specific and realistic goal. For example instead of choosing the goal to lose weight, choose an achievable amount you would like to lose.
  • Pick only one or two resolutions which you can focus your efforts in to
  • Avoid choosing New Year’s resolutions which you have failed at previously, these will only demotivate you for the New Year.

Is traveling one of your new year’s resolutions? Make sure you’re covered for 2016 with a Questor Insurance annual travel insurance policy, so you can have as many holidays as you want without extra travel insurance costs.

We would love to hear your New Year’s resolutions don’t forget to tweet them to @QuestorIns
