Our resolutions more or less stay the same each year, yet we seldom keep them for a number of reasons. We have trouble creating good habits, we have no plan for how to accomplish the goals, or the resolutions aren’t entertaining in the slightest. This year, your friends at Rainbow Rink are helping you come up with three resolutions that will be fun for you and your family to keep in 2022.
- Fun Fitness
If you’re like us, there is probably something on your resolutions list each year along the lines of “exercise daily” or “get moving more often”. We’re always aiming to get healthier, so why is it so hard to stick to this resolution? Our recommendation is to make your fitness efforts something you can do with the whole family! Activities like going to a trampoline park, indoor rock climbing, or roller skating are just a few ideas for things you can do to get your heartrate up that don’t involve hitting the gym. We’re not saying you should cancel your gym membership, but try to set aside time once or twice a week to participate in a different kind of exercise with your family!
- Family Game Night
If you’re looking to spend more intentional time with your family, set aside time each week to play games after dinner! Not only will this be something for everyone to look forward to, but it’s a great way to unplug for a couple of hours and exercise your brain whether it be with a game of solitaire or a board game like Monopoly. If you don’t want to break the bank on games, buy a standard deck of cards and choose a game from this list.
- Plan a Staycation
It’s easy to get caught up in the hubbub of life when you’re juggling work, school, family, and friendships. What better way to take a rest than to plan a staycation with your family? Staycations allow the family to stay at home, but participate in leisure activities within driving distance from your home (or plan some AT home). Have each family member come up with a local activity that excites them and plan to do them all in one weekend. Not only will this be fun for the whole family to plan, but you can do so without the hefty cost of out-of-town vacations!
Resolutions can be difficult to keep, but these exciting ideas won’t feel like a chore! Regardless of which resolutions you choose, the folks at Rainbow Rink are happy to help your 2022 be a year full of new experiences!
