Whether you buy into it or not, the arrival of a new year creates possibilities to reevaluate, rearrange, reorganize and reset. You may think of these as resolutions, or just simply intentions you will set for the upcoming year; regardless there are many local businesses that offer opportunities to tackle any and all of the most common goals that will inevitably be set for 2017.
Looking to begin or advance your yoga practice to reduce stress and strengthen your physical body? Both Inner Glow in Mashpee Commons and Centerville Yoga & Wellness in Centerville offer yoga classes and workshops that are designed for both beginners and advanced practitioners to help them move, breathe, and meditate their way into their own yoga bliss.
Reset your body and learn how to eat mindfully with The Local Juice Clean Kits that prepare you for three days of clean eating with their smoothies, juices, grain bowls and soups all curated by Registered Dietitian Nicole Cormier.
Engage in more self-care by getting a massage, manicure or microcurrent facial at Solstice Day Spa, or try an alternative therapy treatment like acupuncture, cupping (think Michael Phelps), reflexology, or a vibrational alignment at Therapeutic Bodywork.
Gain a new skill by finally learning to play an instrument by participating in the rental or rent-to-own program at Charlie’s Music, learn to make soap at one of Summer House Soaps’ frequent workshops, or become a wine connoisseur at one of Cape Cod Package Store’s wine seminars.
If you have set your sights on a more “traditional” resolution like redesigning your home or office space so it functions as you need it to, check out Margo’s in Osterville where they offer design consultations to help you determine what changes might suit your needs best. If your redesign calls for some closet purging, our editor Amanda Converse is adept at helping anyone rid themselves of stuff they don’t want or need cluttering their lives.
And if your New Year’s resolution is to invest more in your community by shopping local, we are happy to help point you in the right directions for all of your shopping needs!
Happy New Year!
