How to Keep Your 2022 New Year’s Resolutions

Based on a Statista study, Americans have made the same top New Year’s Resolutions year after year. New Year’s Resolutions are a beloved tradition: much like watching the ball drop and counting down to midnight, they have become a quintessential part of the holiday. Here at Garden Communities Florida, our residents are given practical ways to ensure that their resolutions are achievable.   

More Exercise

This has been on the top of everyone’s resolution list for decades. Thankfully the warm Florida weather allows for outdoor exercise almost year-round. Our residents are even luckier, as most of our apartment communities offer a fitness center and a swimming pool just steps from their front door, which makes it much more convenient to exercise before or after work.  There are so many ways to stay active in Brevard County while social distancing and staying active and cool during the summer.

Maybe one of the best new fads are staycations – you don’t even need a hotel room! Staycations are a great way to stay present and reconnect with local family and friends. There are great things to see and do in Florida; from great weekend getaways to hidden gems on the Space Coast or finding gold on Florida’s Treasure Coast and visiting the best golf courses, staycations are a great to find ways to relax within your own community. And for those days when the weather just isn’t cooperating, we’ve found ways to enjoy your staycation at home.
