Happy New Year, here’s to a New Year of possibilities, new beginnings and exciting new challenges. We decided to follow tradition and put together our very own New Year’s Resolutions for 2018. Here they are, St Moritz style…
More Relaxation Time
It’s so easy to always be rushing about, moving from to do list to meetings, to the inbox, the housework or the ever-piling admin. This year we really want to prioritise more relaxation time. That looks different for everyone. Perhaps it’s just an hour curled up with a book once a week. Maybe it’s joining a local leisure club and taking a dip each evening, perhaps it’s a massage every month at the Cowshed spa, more time on the beach or even a mini-break once per quarter to recharge. Whatever it is, it’s all about unplugging, disconnecting and just sitting for a while.
One thing we are championing for 2018 is reconnection time as a couple. Whether it’s a new relationship, an established marriage or a busy juggle with kids and commitments added into the mix, why not look at introducing a dedicated date night once per month to simply switch off and reconnect with one another? Dinner a deux in a local restaurant is always a winner and gives you a chance to get out of your environment, dress up and enjoy each other’s company. Or why not book a mini-break? Romance is our forte so we’re bound to have something to suit your occasion. An anniversary, birthday, Valentine’s or perhaps just a night to indulge in time together, we’ve got it covered.
Make More Memories
It can sometimes seem that Christmas is so focused on gifts and sparkly things that sometimes it’s good to step back for the New Year and assess what truly matters. For 2018, we want to look at making more memories, spending quality time with family and friends and enjoying experiences rather than things. Why not book a family meal for a special occasion or enjoy a family break to Cornwall, something that they’ll remember forever. Make sandcastles on beautiful beaches, explore cobbled streets, enjoy good food and great old-fashioned family fun, that’s what life’s about.
Explore New Places
We’ve decided 2018 is going to be the year of exploring new places – whether this means new countries and cultures or even locally, spending more time savouring what’s on our doorstep and exploring the hidden Cornwall, seeing it through the eyes of the locals. With so much to see and do in Cornwall alone, we’re planning excursions to secluded coves, little known attractions, days out on boats to explore the county from the water and time in all of the petite Cornish towns that are a bit more off the beaten track.
Try Your Hand at a New Hobby
A New Year is the perfect time to try a new hobby or learn a new skill and we certainly want to try new experiences in 2018. Whether it’s to learn a new language (we might give Cornish a go!), try a new sport, take up yoga or perhaps even cocktail making or surfing (local surf school Wavehunters offer a discount to St Moritz guests), there’s something for all styles and desires.
How about you? What will your New Year’s resolutions be in 2018?
