#101 – New Year’s Resolutions
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Rob & Pam Schabatka – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

As we begin the New Year, we have taken time to reflect on 2011. After some thought, there is plenty we would like to improve on in 2012. Sedona AZ is notorious for new beginnings and/or an ideal place to make changes in your life. We feel lucky we get a chance to regroup in such a great place.

We have routinely discussed how we feel Sedona’s culture and outdoor-friendly community is plenty of a reason to live in this gorgeous town. As we took time to decide on our New Year’s Resolutions, we determined 2012 is time to take advantage of our town and to focus on our health. We have decided we will attempt to improve our health in three areas:

  • The Mind
  • The Body
  • and The Soul

With those goals in mind, living in Sedona allows us and others an opportunity to pursue our resolutions with plenty of options locally.

New Year’s Resolution #1: Restoring Health to your Mind
With an assortment of organizations to join, there are multiple ways to engage your mind and to learn something new every day. Here are some examples of things you can do for mental stimulation:

New Year’s Resolution #2: Restoring Health to your Body
Spending time in nature is one of the best things you can do for your body & spirit. Exercise in Sedona is fun, you have countless options. Here are some suggestions:

  • Join one of Sedona’s fabulous gyms: Sedona Fit or Snap Fitness if you would like to admire Sedona Red Rocks from an indoor exercise facility.

New Year’s Resolution #3: Restoring Health to your Soul
One reason so many people call Sedona home is the numerous places of worship. If you come to Sedona looking for a place of worship that practices your beliefs, 99% of the time you will find one or more places to choose from.
