Let’s be honest — we make the same New Year’s resolutions every year, and we seldom keep them for a number of reasons. We have no plan for how to accomplish the goals, we have trouble creating good habits, or the resolutions aren’t entertaining in the slightest. This year, we’re helping you come up with a few resolutions that will be fun for you and your family.
If you’re like us, there is probably something on your resolutions list each year along the lines of “hit the gym” or “get fit”. We’re always aiming to get healthier, so why is it so hard to make it stick? Our recommendation? Make your fitness efforts something you can do with the whole family! Activities like rock climbing, paddle boarding, or bowling are just a few ideas for things you can do to get your heart rate up that don’t involve lifting weights at a gym. We’re not saying you need to cancel your gym membership, but maybe set aside time once a week to participate in alternative exercise with your family!
If you’re looking to spend more intentional time with your family, set aside time each week to play board or card games after dinner! Not only will this be something for everyone to look forward to, but it’s a great way to unplug from technology for a couple of hours and exercise your brain. If you don’t want to break the bank on games, buy a standard deck of cards and choose a game from this list.
With a busy schedule like yours, it’s easy to get caught up in the hubbub of life. What better way to take a rest than to plan a vacation, or better yet, a staycation with your family. Staycations allow the family to stay home, but participate in leisure activities within driving distance from your home. Have each family member come up with an activity they really like or want to try, and plan to do them all in one weekend. Not only will this be fun for the whole family to plan, but it won’t break the bank either!
Resolutions can be difficult to keep, but they don’t have to be with these exciting ideas! Regardless of which resolutions you choose, the folks at Richmond 40 are happy to help your 2022 be a year full of new experiences!
