Cape and Islands-Resolutions for New Year 2016

Typical New Year's Resolutions run the gamut from self improvement to worldly intentions. Along with the usual list, eventually discarded without a clear plan of attack - lose weight, exercise more, eat better food, eat out less and cook at home, quit smoking, quit drinking coffee, soda or alcohol, finish associates degree, attend cultural events, get a better job, win the lottery, pay off those credit cards, save money for a big Cape Cod vacation, recycle, conserve energy, volunteer & donate to charities, adopt a pet, pray for world peace...
...This year New Year's resolutions include a couple of different ideas. Find a new boyfriend and organize the sock drawer!

2016With some careful planning, some of these seemingly small individual resolutions can actually work together to achieve the bigger goals in 2016. More exercise, better food choices and eating habits, a reduction of alcohol, and walking the newly adopted dog may surprising lead to weight loss. Finishing that college degree should help secure a better paying job. Don't count on winning the lottery! Getting a better (paying) job, reducing credit card debt, cooking at home, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, recycling bottles and cans, and conserving energy are good ways to increase a vacation savings fund!Darwin the Black Lab Attending local cultural events - concerts and theatre productions, worshiping at weekly church services, taking college courses, volunteering for a cause, shopping for groceries, sorting at the recycling center, starting a new job, walking the dog, and finally going on vacation are great ways to meet new people.
