I Heart New Year’s Resolutions

Happy Thursday and Happy New Year!

Can you believe it is already 2018? Although we will be sad to see the holiday decorations leave Plaza Park, we are thrilled about the opportunities and events that await us in the coming year. Speaking of, who has their New Year’s Resolutions already planned? I know each year I remind myself to continue my journey of healthy eating and staying active throughout my day. Are you striving for fitness goals this year? Is 2018 your year for getting more sleep or trying something new? Whether you are trying to achieve a 2018 goal, or are just looking for new activities to get involved with, here is our list of ways to accomplish your New Year’s Resolutions without even leaving Old Towne Orange.


Fitness – To achieve your fitness goal, consider visiting SunSpark Yoga, located right here in Old Towne! SunSpark offers classes and workshops every single day that will inspire anyone from beginners to long-time yogis to engage in fitness in 2018! While you are checking them out, read our recent post of SunSpark HERE! 

If you’re looking for a bit more of an active kick in the pants to start this new year, then join us over at Hit the Mark Fitness. Bootcamp with Mark and his wonderful team is one sweaty and worthwhile experience. It’s also a quick way to shave a few inches off the backside, if you know what I mean.

Healthy Eating – Healthy eating is among one of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions. Luckily enough, Old Towne has so many places to inspire your 2018 health-kick! For example, Rutabegorz describes themselves as a New American restaurant, offering vegetarian and vegan options, as well as healthy soups, salads, and sandwiches. Read our blog post about Ruta’s for the inside scoop! Additionally, if you have not yet, we can’t recommend enough visiting the Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market. They are moving as of THIS Saturday, so be sure to stop by the market for fun giveaways and activities. Their new location is right around the corner so you won’t miss a beat. Buying locally grown produce will surely kick start your 2018 healthy eating habits!


Giving More – No matter what your love language is, giving back to friends, family, and organizations is a New Years Resolution that will make anyone feel good. The act of giving makes you feel as good as the person you are giving too! This year, consider finding a treasure at one of Old Towne’s many antique shops or visiting The Dizzy Daisy to pick out the perfect bouquet for someone special in your life! Further, read our blog post about how to give back to the Old Towne Orange community HERE. You can make a difference in 2018!

Getting More Sleep – This is a wish of many people throughout the year, not just after New Year’s Eve. To get more sleep, visit your favorite coffee shops before 4PM (that is my mom’s golden rule) and try not looking at your electronics an hour before bed. Instead, take an evening walk in Old Towne to wind down for the night! Think about your hopes and aspirations for the new year. We are so excited to have you along for the ride with us!

Have a great weekend and a great 2018 everybody! We will see you in Old Towne!
