Holiday festivities are coming to an end along with the abundance of food, cheer and general sitting around. Now we can look to the New Year; what does 2017 hold for us? Do you have a resolution that keeps popping up? Or a brand new one especially relevant in this moment? Here are some gift ideas to help yourself or a loved one welcome 2017 happier, healthier and more well-rounded.
This is probably the top New Year’s resolution out there. After indulging for a good part of December many are looking to shed pounds and get fit. The Misfit Shine is an activity and sleep monitor that links directly to your SmartPhone! Whether on a bike, underwater, playing tennis or simply strolling around, this little accessory will let you know how close you are to meeting daily goals.
It might be tough finding the time and money to travel, but it’s so beneficial for the body, mind and spirit. Lonely Planet’s “On a Shoestring” Guidebooks will get you through the door on your way to a new place in no time; plus you’ll spend far less following helpful tips from real travelers!
Learn a new language.
Maybe it’s in the back of your mind, something along the lines of: “I’d love to learn Italian but I don’t have the time” or “When I travel to South America I want to speak the local language” there never seem to be enough hours in the day and that feeling might not change but with Rosetta Stone you’re on your way to fluidity in far less time than with other methods. The idea behind Rosetta Stone is to imitate an immersive learning experience. So, even if you are on a different continent, you’ll be able to practice with a local and work on content you truly need, not solely grammar and syntax.
Start reading. Again.
This one also fits in with “make more ‘me’ time” sitting down with a good book and thinking on nothing else can be one of the most soothing and rejuvenating experiences. The all-new Kindle Reader from Amazon is a great investment for someone who reads a lot… or wants to start reading a lot! It’s incredible easy and affordable to download the newest bestseller or a classic from as little as $2.99 wherever you may be.
What’s your resolution? Please share below and help others get inspired to welcome 2017 with a new goal!
