Common New Year’s Resolutions To Avoid If You’re An Outdoor Lover (or want to be)

It’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade. This time, you’re actually going to follow through with your New Year’s Resolution, right? But if you’re an outdoor lover or want to spend more time outdoors, you may have some resolutions that could unknowingly keep you inside. 

At York Companies, we love the outdoors so much that we build amazing outdoor living spaces for people in the Kansas City area to enjoy. So here’s a few common New Year’s Resolutions you should avoid if you’re an outdoor lover. 

Get back to the gym

You know what the gym means? Countless hours inside. We’re not saying you can’t get in shape; you definitely should! Instead of paying for an expensive gym membership, try taking your efforts outside. Exercising outdoors is a great way to get some fresh air while burning away calories. 

Keep the house cleaner

No, your house is fine. If you keep your house cleaner, you’ll be more inclined to stay inside. How about your keep your house the way it is, and avoid the clutter by enjoying a new deck or fiberglass pool?


Side note: We’re kidding. You should probably clean your house. 

Upgrade your interior design

We get it — your 1980s-esque wallpaper doesn’t really work anymore. But can’t that wait? Now is the perfect time to upgrade your outdoor living space so that you and your family can enjoy the great outdoors. You can still test your HGTV skills while getting outside more. 

Eat healthier

Eating healthy is one of those common New Year’s Resolutions that many people add to their list. Unfortunately, healthy eating also means you can’t enjoy a new pizza oven for your deck (unless you want to try something like cauliflower crust, which may or may not be disgusting). But if you absolutely have to eat healthy, an outdoor kitchen allows you to grill vegetables and lean meats for a tasty option!
