Need help staying on track to maintaining your New Year’s resolutions? The below tips cover some of the most common resolutions, and offer helpful suggestions for how you can stay with your resolve in Little River this year.
If you want to Eat healthier
If big diet changes are too drastic for you, try making just little changes when you go out to eat. Vegetables instead of fries, grilled instead of fried, and water instead of soda, are all easy and simple steps to help you begin.
If you want to Get in Shape
While there’s a lot you can do at home, having outside accountability can help you achieve consistency. Try taking a group fitness class at Little River Fit Body Boot Camp (843-999-0197), join a gym with a friend and go together, or hire a coach who will check in with your progress and help keep you on track.
If you want to Get out of Debt
Most financial advice for paying down a credit card includes paying more than the minimum payment, creating a budget for yourself to reduce expenses, getting a second job, and negotiating your bill. If you’re looking for more personalized advice or want to start planning your retirement, you should meet with a financial advisor like Edward Jones (843-663-0162).
If you want to Learn a New Skill
Coastal Carolina University’s OLLI program (843-349-5002) offers opportunities for adults to take non-credit courses in art, history, politics, health & wellness, genealogy, estate planning, technology, languages, science, writing, fitness, and more.
If you want to Read More
In addition to books, the Little River Library also has partnerships which offer free online books and audible books. So you don’t even have to go to the library to make returns!
If you want to Meet New People
The Little River Chamber is a great place for networking opportunities.
If you want to Watch Less TV
Try something else, like catching a show at the Alabama Theatre (843-272-1111). This way you still have fun time, but you’re committed to doing something away from your screen.
If you want to go to your Doctor / Dentist regularly
Many people put off doctor and dentist visits because they feel fine. But taking care of your health proactively can nip any potential problems in the bud, and give you a benchmark for where you’re at.
If you want to Learn more about art, music, and culture
The North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum (843-427-7668) is a hidden gem in our area. Call them for their winter hours.
And of course, it’s always a great idea to continue to keep up with the positive habits you implemented last year. Here’s to a great 2020!
