The new year is a time to reflect on the past year, look forward to the next, and start the list of goals you’d like to accomplish. Some of us promise to spend more time at the gym and train for a race, others to eat out less and save money. We write lists and keep journals, but oftentimes, we just can’t seem to keep up with the changes. 2018 is going to be the year where we finally get it right by setting realistic goals that will make a difference in our day to day lives.
Here are our top resolutions for 2018:
Spend quality time with our family and friends.
Set the date for those get-togethers! Locally in Amherst and the surrounding areas, there are so many things to do with friends – theatre, museums, art galleries, and a bustling food scene. Get some ideas for your next adventure from our friends at Visit Hampshire County.
Live in the moment!
Don’t miss the real moments trying to take the perfect, Instagrammable picture of it! Next time you’re at a wedding, event, or night out with friends, put your phone down and enjoy the company around you, dance to your favorite song, and enjoy every bite of your food.
Disconnect a little.
Enjoy a little time away from your devices and social media accounts and more time engaged in conversations with your friends and family – without the little blue text bubbles!
Make more memories.
Experiences stay with you and help to create everlasting memories. Whether it be a cooking class, a hike, or a trip, you’re sure to encounter something that sticks with you for years to come.
Adventure More! Take a hike after a snowstorm.
Hampshire County averages close to 40 inches of snowfall yearly and it’s usually a beautiful site to see (after you’ve shoveled the walkway and cleaned off your car, of course). Take advantage of this winter wonderland by taking a hike after a fresh snowfall. View some of our favorite trails.
Smile Every Day!
It takes only 17 muscles to smile and 42 to frown. Smiling is proven to help lighten your mood and enhance your interactions with those around you. Walk around with a smile on your face – it will change your day!
