We are 2+ weeks into 2016. How are your resolutions going?
According to Time.com, the thing that most people want to do in this new year is “enjoy life to the fullest.” Other popular resolutions include living a healthier lifestyle, losing weight, reducing debt, saving money, and spending more time with family and friends.
Of the people surveyed, a little more than half are focusing on just one resolution, and that’s pretty smart. Trying to do too much at one time sets you up for failure. We support moderation, but what if you could make one change that can impact your life, your wallet, your waistline, and help others at the same time? Sounds pretty good, right? So let’s talk about how you get to work.
For the next few weeks we’re going to focus our attention on the benefits of not driving alone. Taking the bus, sharing your ride in a carpool or vanpool, walking, or biking can help you get more physical activity, save you some cash, and help you do more in your day, plus, you can win some actual swag when you use our GoPerks program to track your trips.
Now, if you’re already a GoSmart convert, THANK YOU, YOU ARE MY HERO. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is tell a friend or two or ten about how you get to work. Also, make sure you’re tracking those commutes.
If you drive alone and think there’s no way you can make a change, do me a favor, please. Check out gosmartnc.org/newyear to see just how rewarding going smart can be. If you need help figuring out your options, holler at us in the comments or online.
I’ll be back for Two Link Tuesday, so be on the lookout for more #NewYearNewCommute information. Have a great weekend! Oh, and I almost forgot– Happy New Year!
