After weeks of reckless indulging and booze-filled madness, we need some physical acitivity and meditation to recalibrate our lives. And what better way to kickstart the year than with some outdoor yoga in the sunny Boca Raton.
This therapy retreat is great for some quality time with friends and family. Not to mention that the yoga event (called Something BIG) is just minutes away from the luxurious Eau Palm Beach. This beachfront resort has in-house restaurants and spas to make you vacation all the more memorable.
Texas Hill Country
In today’s digital age, we could all use a detox from our computer and smart phone devices. If your new year resolution is to minimize screen time, a trip to the Hill County in Texas is the perfect place to kickstart 2019.

Instead of scrolling through your phone, soak in the beautiful Southern scenery or enjoy a horseback ride, cowboy style. There are so many ways to enjoy Texas’ raw beauty, whether in the form of scrumptious barbeque or live music with fine-tasting brew.
Sometimes, all you need to cure a holiday hangover is some good quality chocolate and Belgium waffles. Well, what better way to satisfy your sweet tooth than by taking a trip to the land of chocolate itself. Yes, we’re talking about the Willy Wonka of Europe: Belgium.
