6 New Year’s Resolutions you can keep in 2022

Looking forward to a new year? Aren’t we all! Travel is a great way to check several things off that inspirational to-do list.

If recent years have taught us anything, it’s to stop putting things off. Life’s short. Time flies. And memories are really all that last. If you want to make 2022 a great year, here are a few resolution ideas that you can fulfill while visiting our destination.

1. Get outside and boost your immune system

With an average of 325 days of sunshine per year, it’s safe to say you can spend a lot of time outdoors in Providenciales. And whether it’s water sports, walking, cycling, golfing, or simply lounging on one of many beachfront patios, you’ll be getting your Cs, Ds and much needed fresh, saline air. We discussed the Powers of Vitamin Sea in a previous post, but it’s worth repeating: “The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.” — Robert Wyland.

2. Read more

If you’re like most of us, there’s a must-read list living somewhere on your phone or computer. Titles suggested by friends or colleagues, classics you want to revisit, or perhaps a few New York Times best-sellers, Whatever you fancy reading, gear up and plan for long, relaxing days of literary catch-up. No stress. No rush. No noise.

3. Write it all down

Working on a novel, project or any endeavor requiring periods of deep-dive thinking, without interruption? Consider a getaway. There’s nothing like a change of scenery to get the creative juices flowing. By stepping away from our daily surroundings, the senses automatically go into high alert, with sights, sounds, and even flavors enhanced.  Come relax the body to awaken the mind.

4. Try something new

“When was the last time you tried something for the first time?” You may have heard that question before, but honestly wouldn’t it be exciting to learn or experience something different this year? Come to Turks and try kitesurfing, or paddle boarding, or even a new dish? Even if you stick to activities you know, practicing them in a different setting is always refreshing. Here’s a link for a little inspiration.

5. More memories, less stuff

As stated at the beginning of this article, memories are what we really hold onto. 

Adults chatting around an outdoor table, watching the kids giggle and swim, after a sumptuous family meal served under the stars. A parent-child kitesurfing class. An early morning run to watch the sunrise. Deep conversation while you playfully dig your feet into the warm, white sand. Building castles, paddling mangroves, fishing, swimming, late nights, family movies and much, much more. It’s what they’ll remember, and it’s what you’ll cherish.

Bonus. Support small businesses

Many small businesses (and destinations) have had a hard time of it over the last 24 months. If you find it beneficial for you and your family to get away, consider how instrumental it could be for families living in small communities relying on visitors. By creating memories with your crew, you’re also helping all sorts of local businesses thrive. Good karma guaranteed!

You may have other resolutions, aspirations or dreams. And that’s great. They fuel what we do. If slowing down and spending time with your people is among these, we guarantee you’ll be well served. 

In fact, it’s one of the reasons our family moved to Providenciales. 

Happiest of New Years and we hope to see you soon! 

Simon, Pina and Max
