If you’re one to make New Year’s resolutions, you know how hard it can be to keep them. For example, while eating super healthy seems like a really good idea, so does ordering a Dulce De Leche Delight at Crepes A La Cart (try saying that three times fast). And abandoning your daily coffee habit? That’s darn near impossible with The Crown, Cabin Coffee and Cuppa Joe within walking distance of one another.
It’s true. There’s a lot of temptation to ditch your New Year’s resolutions in Breck. But if you look beyond the decadent desserts and amazing coffee at every turn, our quaint mountain town also presents a lot of opportunities to stick to your guns and really commit to achieving your goals. Here are five ways Breck makes it really easy to improve yourself and follow through on your New Year’s resolutions for 2017!
Stay fit and healthy
When you live in Breckenridge, there’s really no excuse not to stay fit and healthy. For such a small town, there are so many opportunities for being active and exploring the great outdoors. From downhill and cross-country skiing, to hiking a 14er, to snow shoeing, to kayaking, to biking, your options are virtually limitless.
Learn something new
If you’ve just moved to Breckenridge and are still getting your footing on the slopes, learning to ski is a must. Breckenridge Nordic Center offers lessons and clinics regardless of experience level. If you’re looking for something less physical, Breck Create has adult classes and workshops in ceramics, printmaking, collage and more.
Spend more time with family
When kids are involved in after-school activities, it can be hard to carve out quality family time. Set aside at least one afternoon per week to do something fun together at one of Breck’s many family-friendly venues. Check out the Mountain Top Children’s Museum, go ice-skating at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena, or tour the Swan River Valley on a dog sledding tour.
Enjoy life to the fullest
This resolution is somewhat objective, but regardless of what it means to you, we can guarantee Breck can help you fulfill it. Whether it’s slowing down and living more consciously, taking care of your body and mind, overcoming your fears, or following your passion and doing work you love, the peace and beauty of the Rocky Mountains are wonderful inspiration for self-improvement.
Save more money
You wouldn’t think that making a major purchase is a good way to save money, but it is. Buying a home in Breckenridge is a fantastic way to grow your personal wealth and build equity – especially if you buy an investment property. With passive income, you can fast track your retirement plan or finally take that trip to Bali you’ve been dreaming of. Money = freedom.
