6 Ways to Make 2018 Your Best Year Yet


The start of something new is always a good time to make improvement. Whether it’s a new month, year, job, or location, starting fresh just adds good vibes and it’s the perfect time to set some goals. Here are some ideas for the new year and ways we plan on having the best year yet in Destin, Florida

Take it Easy: No, we don’t mean be lazy. We mean don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s easy to get frustrated when things don’t turn out how we plan but don’t count it as a failure. Pick yourself up and try again. Great things take time so be patient and keep working towards your goals one step at a time.

Enjoy the Small Things: This one sounds so simple but we can get so busy in our routine that we never take a second to appreciate the little things. Whether you’re a parent, work full-time, go to school, or just plain busy, you’ll probably agree that there are days when you can’t even remember the last meaningful thing you did. We live in a gorgeous place, stop and smell the roses so to speak. Take a walk on the beach or watch the sunset. Getting a break from routine is a great way to reset and boost your mood. 

Bullet Journal: For those that enjoy writing, try a bullet journal. It’s the new “vision board”. Keeping track of ideas, goals, and habits is nice for inspiring you to keep going. With a bullet journal, you write or draw it all out and check or color boxes as you get closer to accomplishing them. Seeing your progress and growth can really motivate you in every aspect of life whether it’s work, health, or anything else. It’s not just a passing trend, it can be an amazing productivity tool. 

Have Fun: Being an adult can be a pain sometimes. So much responsibility and deadlines and…responsibility. Do you ever look at kids and reminisce about being carefree? Well, no one is stopping you from having fun! There are so many ways to do this on the Gulf Coast. You can go to The Track and race go-karts. Put your mystery-solving skills to the test at Escape Zone 60 and try to find your way out in just an hour. Or pick one of the many watersports available: jetski, paddleboarding, surfing, or just swimming. 

Be Grateful: There are always things to be grateful for and you can have a great day by doing something nice for someone else. Take the time to thank someone. Think of someone you appreciate and show them you care. Whether it’s just a card, flowers, or a gift, everyone’s day gets brighter when they feel appreciated. 

Take a Vacation: Vacations aren’t just a luxury for the rich and famous. Everyone needs a break to step away from their daily world and reenergize. It’s good for your health, your relationships, and your productivity when you take time off. Destin and 30A vacation rentals can be booked along the coast at great rates year-round. Have a time in mind, set aside a little money each paycheck to go towards the trip, and check for specials around the time you want to go. Don’t let another year go by without using your vacation time. Make it happen!

These are some ideas we intend to put into action this upcoming year. It’s not all about getting in the best shape or making more money. That would be nice but these are some ways to improve overall. We are looking forward to our best year yet!
