2020 is almost here, and as we say goodbye to one decade and welcome another, we thought it would be good to give you some ideas of things to try in 2020. Sure everyone is writing about resolutions, but don’t think of these as resolutions. Sure, each of these activities will improve your life in a meaningful way. In reality, we just want to jump start your that adventurous spirit that is inside all of us. You know that restless, sitting at your desk, but daydreaming of other things, spirit. Yup, you don’t need to click another YouTube video to get inspired. This year is all about doing things. So get ready as we plan another great year here on Ocean Isle Beach with these awesome things you need to try.
Are you looking for a great place for a family vacation? In years past, have you had the best intentions yet never got around to planning a beach vacation? In 2020 why not try planning that beach vacation you’ve always wanted. Where you ask? Well, Ocean Isle Beach, of course!
Ocean Isle Beach is the perfect family-friendly beach destination. Our charming community has miles of pristine beaches, is easy to get to, and is loaded with adventures. Williamson Realty Vacation is your one-stop shop for finding your vacation rental. So try a new place this year and come visit us on Ocean Isle Beach.
Limit your screen time
We all love our smartphones, laptops, and tablets, but there is a whole wide world beyond your screen. We aren’t saying you shouldn’t use your phone, but we hope to encourage you to take some time away from the screen and explore a little more. Here are three things to do besides updating your Instagram account.
1. Get outside more often. Look, we aren’t saying you need to run a marathon, but incorporating a short walk each day is a great way to stay active and stay off your phone. Need a place to walk? Don’t forget walking on the beach is not only good for you; it’s also a beautiful and relaxing way to get exercise.
2. Reading more is something we all need to do. Reading has been shown to help you stay mentally sharp and can even help fight off Alzheimer’s disease. Besides nothing goes with a day on the beach like a book.
3. Spend more family time. We’ve all seen those families at the restaurant, you know the ones, mom, dad, and the kids all on their cell phones scrolling through endless screens of who knows what. Try and set up specific times that are “phone-free,” including dinner table time. We’re sure you’ll love it.
For many of you living in landlocked states, good seafood is something that is hard to find. Here on Ocean Isle Beach we are a bit spoiled. Our community is situated in the heart of North Carolina’s seafood industry. What does this mean for you? Well, when you come visit us you’ll be able to try all sorts of new foods. From shrimp and grits to fresh tuna steaks, we have all the seafoods you have to try. So make 2020 the year you dive into the joys of fresh seafood.
Take charge of your health in fun ways
In this go, go, world we all live in, it has become all to common that our health takes a back seat to the demands of daily life. For 2020 it’s time to take charge of your health. Don’t worry, we aren’t talking anything extreme, just a few steps to help you feel better physically and mentally. How you ask? Easy, just follow some of the things we mentioned in this blog. Try moving more, exercise your brain a bit more, and eat better. There are no weird soup diets, and we aren’t going to sell you Zumba lessons. This year just make your health a priority and enjoy the benefits. Plus you want to be in top shape for your Ocean Isle Beach vacation.
It’s time to get off the couch and have an adventure. Sure, we all watch YouTube and see all the fun things others are doing, but let 2020 be the year that you make your own adventure. Ocean Isle Beach is a great place to find adventure. From SUP to kayaking, surfing to deep- sea fishing, we have an adventure for you.
