New Year, New Resolutions: Gull Lake Resources for a Healthy Lifestyle in 2018

Updated: Apr 16, 2019

As a New Year begins, so too does the possibility for new opportunities, experiences and resolutions. Just like goals, resolutions should be attainable. Consider what you want to achieve and, from there, create a plan. Start with small steps: i.e., if your resolution is to lose weight, start by working out for 30 minutes a day and work up from there. Now, have you set your goals? Is one of your resolutions to live a healthier lifestyle and/or lose weight? As these are pretty common, we thought we would help out our local Gull Lake community! Take a look at this list of resources we have compiled to help you reach this year’s goal:
