8 Gold Coast inspired New Year’s Resolutions

A new year means new beginnings and it’s usually a time of year when gym memberships sky rocket and alcohol consumption is at an all-time low (not around here but good for y’all).

Clearly the whole ‘new year, new me’ talk can be a bit much but we’re all for having a go.

Here’s a few Gold Coast inspired ideas to get you going.

Get your nature on
Get fit or die trying. Don’t but you know what we mean. Plan a trip to one of the many waterfalls and hidden gems on the Gold Coast. Or maybe have a picnic at one of these sweet spots.

Visit all the new restaurants
2018 gave the Coast so many epic new restaurants and bars. Now is the time to make plans and finally go visit them all.

Support local
You’ve probably been to Miami Marketta and Night Quarter but have you checked out all the other sweet local markets? As a New Year’s Resolution, shop small and support local.

Get artsy
There are plenty of spots around here to soothe your inner artist. Why not hit up some live music, take a creative workshop or visit an art gallery.

Spend more time with your friends
Make an effort to spend more time with your loved ones by adventuring the Gold Coast. How about barefoot bowls, a visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary or dinner and cabaret at Draculas Cabaret Restaurant.

Get fit
If you’re not already on the get-fit-band wagon (are you even a Gold Coaster), jump on it now. Sign up to a gym, do yoga classes or get amongst all the fun activities, like learning how to surf, that will get your heart-rate going. Here’s some unique ones to try. 

Eat healthy                                                                                                                         
Now that you’re getting fit and active it’s time to ditch the fast food and nourish your body from within. Check out our epic healthy takeaway list.

Give back
Not only is it super fun to dig up someone’s pre-loved treasures, you also support the local community by helping the less fortunate. You can either donate your old clothes, accessories and furniture or go on an op-shop shopping rampage.

Happy resolutioning!
