A Time to Reflect and Start AnewJanuary 2007
Sometimes you have to look at yourself from the outside to really get inside. That’s the best
place to start when looking for a New Years Resolution. Get out of town, out of your comfort
zone. Learn a new sport, try a new style of eating, sign up for a personal trainer, go birding.
Be the one who knows a little about a lot instead of a lot about a little. Your personal journey
might be right in your own backyard.
Whether taking ski or snowboard lessons at Mt. Shasta Ski Park or determining what a deltoid
is, there always is something to learn. Ringing in the New Year means trying something new.
Want to make dramatic changes in your health? Find a personal trainer and change your life!
Did you know that those given one-on-one instruction got fit approximately 30% faster, and
made greater gains in muscle mass than those who trained alone? Do things differently. Instead
of always working out indoors, take it outside and go night skiing at the ski park.
Try a new restaurant offering a tapas-style menu and flights of wine. Go antiquing and
discover the thrill of finding treasures. Go on a wild goose chase and discover the wonderment
of birding. Don’t forget to stop at one of our favorite pit stops on I-5, the Olive Pit in Corning,
where they treat everyone like family.
We like to look at 2007 as the year for adventure and stretching yourself by learning something
new. And most importantly, make a bigger difference by following your heart and giving back
to your community. Reach new heights, go climb a mountain and ski the face… you may
