A new year seems like a natural time to make important changes and hit the reset button. In the past, research has shown that top resolutions include things like losing weight and falling in love. And while recent studies conducted by the Statistic Brain Research Institute show that top 10 resolutions are similar, with items such as self-improvement and finding new love, there are also more innovative ideas such as:
- Learning a new skill
- Getting more sleep
- Spending more time with family
- Finishing a home remodeling project
There are some resolutions that are strictly personal. However, there are quite a few that can easily be set and accomplished right here in Monmouth County! Whether you want to find a new career this year, help others in the community, find a new hobby, or meet new people, we have some local businesses that can help you out.
Meet New People and Make New Friends
Hugging the Jersey Shore, Monmouth County is a very diverse community with dozens of towns and communities to visit from seaside Sandy Hook in the North, to equine Allentown in the Southwest, to the coastline lining the eastern portion of the county. From theaters and churches to historic sites and battlefields, there’s something for everyone to bond over in Monmouth County. Not to mention the local restaurants and bars around in all the towns! If going out to a local watering hole is not the first step you had in mind, try joining one of the many networking clubs based in the local towns.
Spend More Time with Family
From painting to movies, arcade games, and so much more, no matter what age you are, there are plenty of Jersey Shore indoor things to do which will allow for more family fun time. Let your kids get their energy out at any one of the play gyms or take some lessons so you can all learn a new skill. Even a family date night to a local restaurant for dinner would be a lovely treat for family fun night! If you’re really brave, you can keep two New Year’s resolutions and have the children learn a new skill at the same time! Maybe enroll the kids in a martial arts class offered at Blue Dragon Karate in Matawan or Kum Sung Karate in Middletown. You can start the kids off on the right track for the New Year as well!
