New Year's is this time when change IS going to least that's what I try to say each year. Did your New Year resolutions make this top 5 list?


We will scream and yell with excitement when we welcome in 2021. As we welcome in 2021 this year will be different than any other year. We always had a party, playing games with friends, and toasting to a fabulous New Year. We will be social distancing this year with no party but we will be pulling the pans out.

Thank you to for some of these great resolutions:

Walk More in the New Year - Or, at least move a little bit more in 2021. Here are a couple of ideas for you - try parking at the back of the parking lot at the grocery store, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Take a walk at lunchtime. If you work at a desk or from home, stand and walk in place. You'd be surprised, this works, and you'll feel better.

Support Local Restaurants and Businesses - We've seen businesses and restaurants close in Ocean County due to the pandemic. Make it a point in 2021 to support local businesses. They need us. What my family and I do is once a week, order out from a local restaurant. It's not a lot, but I feel I'm helping.

Drink More Water - This is something I have to do more of. I drink water, but not nearly enough. I will take a bottle of water with me, every time I leave the house. I need to drink it and I hope it doesn't end up on the floor in my car.

Quit Smoking - It is a habit, I get it. Quit smoking for yourself and your family.

P.S. I LOVE THIS ONE - Write Snail Mail - I think of my Mom because she loves getting letters in the mail. She doesn't get texts or emails, so this is perfect for her. I try to write her a letter once a week. If you can, try to mail someone a letter once a week. Put a stamp on it and mail it.

Happy, happy New Year. I'm ready for 2021.
