You know how there are just certain times you try to avoid the freeway? Or times of year you wouldn’t dare book a flight? Well, January is a special time of year during which you should also stay away from some particular places and activities. It’s New Year’s Resolution time, after all. While it’s admirable that everybody wants to improve upon themselves, do they have to do it at the same time every year? Typically, you can expect people to give up on their resolutions by March (or April for the truly persistent). But, until then, places that are an ordinary part of your routine can be swamped with New Year’s Resolution junkies. You really wish they’d realize their “new” habit just isn’t going to take so they’d go away, and give you back your space. Until then, avoid these places in January that are crowded with New Year’s Resolution junkies.
Move your workouts out of the gym and onto the beach for now. The lines for the workout machines at the gym will be so long that you may barely have time to run on the treadmill for 10 minutes by the time you get it.
