New Years Resolution Ideas and Inspirations
As we enter 2022, it comes the time to make a New Years’ resolution. Not everyone is a fan of making them, and let’s be honest, not everyone sticks to them, but starting the year with a positive mindset is definitely something we’re a fan of. New Year’s resolutions don’t always need to be based upon fitness or hitting the gym, so we thought we’d suggest alternative ideas and inspiration.
After the past 18 months of travel rules and requirements, we can keep our fingers crossed that 2022 might have fewer restrictions and allow us to plan that dream getaway. Has your perfect holiday been postponed? Maybe you’ve been putting off booking that one location. Just do it! Make some new experiences among the wildest waters and lands the planet has to offer. The memories will last a lifetime.
Of course every adventure needs the right gear and luggage, that’s where we’ve got you covered. Check out our Northcore luggage here.
To Convert a Van to a camper van
Back in 2019, we converted a Sprinter van and whilst it took much longer and cost a lot more than we thought, the entire process was pretty exciting and the results are amazing. Having an idea and a vision is key to planning your van conversion, it is not as straightforward as it seems. It is almost like building a small house, however, once it is completed the endless road trips and getaways are well worth effort. Sound like something you’d be up for as a New Years’ project? Check out our converting a van blog post. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
Learn to Surf
Everyone should try surfing at least once in their lives, it’s healthy for both mind and body and amazing fun. It is never to late to get out there and try a new skill or hobby such as surfing. Northcore team rider Emily Grimes is a perfect example. Emily didn’t even pick up a surfboard until she was 21 in Australia but now living near Newcastle on the UK North Sea she surfs as often as possible and is even starting her own surf school.
Thinking of trying out surfing? Northcore has you covered for all the necessary hardware and accessories. Check out our Surf gear and get prepped for the waves.
Make More Sustainable Choices
Making more sustainable and environmentally friendly choices is something we should all pledge to improve on, as even the smaller changes can make the biggest difference. Swap your single use plastic for an alternative. Aim to shop with a purpose to decrease overconsumption. Purchase products that have longevity.
At Northcore we are now 100% PET plastic free with our packaging and it is an achievement we are super proud of. However there’s always more to do and for us the process is ongoing. Check out our journey so far here. Let us know how you’re planning to act in a more sustainable way this new year?
Embrace the Outdoors
Embracing the outdoors is important for not only your physical wellbeing but your mental wellbeing too. Whether it is simply a walk each day or a new road trip, it all makes a difference. Use 2022 to try a new sport or visit a location you have always wanted to venture to. Engaging with the outdoors is good for the soul – spending time in nature each day can improve your mood and help you to stay active. Take that time you’d usually spend scrolling on social media and get out there!
