#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
