It’s a new year, a new decade and a new you! 2020 is the perfect time to set new goals, make changes, and get a fresh start. But where to begin? We’ve outlined five helpful and diverse resolutions for Easton fans to help get you started.

Start a New Hobby

Did you know that January is national hobby month? Kick-off the new year with a new hobby!

If cooking has never been your thing but you have a desire to learn, check out cooking classes at Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma. Choose your favorite dish from a large list of classes happening every day of the week and master a few dishes.

In 1920, no one streamed movies for a night-in, so home entertainment was found in the pages of a good book. Reading stimulates your brain in a way that TV never could, which is why it’s a healthy habit to pick up this year. Find your next binge-worthy book series at Barnes & Noble!

Get Out, Get Active

Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions revolve around health and wellbeing. The hardest thing about these types of resolutions is that they challenge us to make lifestyle changes. But there are some solutions to help with that change!

Start off on the right foot with a gym membership to Life Time Fitness, or try out cycling with the Cycle Bar or Peloton. Having these programs available is a great way to get you out of the comfort of your home and into an environment with people all working towards similar goals.

Get into the right mindsight to get fit by putting on the right outfit. Having clothes to feel confident in can help you strut your stuff at the gym. Shop at Lululemon or Athleta to find a few key clothing items to boost confidence even when you’re sweaty! Finally, after a long day at work, followed by a hard workout, let your body recover at Restore Hyper Wellness for vitamin therapy, or relax at True Rest Float Spa.

Step Up Your Style

New year, new style! With stores for every style and occasion, Easton makes it easy to completely revamp your wardrobe.

Find what you need for your everyday routine at 7 For All Mankind and ZARA, offering a wide selection of options from comfortable to casual. And speaking of casual, if tucking in your shirt isn’t your thing, then UNTUCKit is for you; a store that makes business casual look easy by creating shirts at true untucked length.

Looking for something eye-catching but professional? Indochino has you covered, literally, with made to measure suits, perfect for the business meetings or milestone events. Throw in amazing accessories and designer clothes from Tory Burch, and you have yourself a true CEO in the making.

Get Organized

Organization is key to everyday success. Having a clean-living space and a designated place for everything boosts efficiency, productivity and happiness. Make Marie Kondo proud after you declutter and get organized with new boxes, bins and baskets from The Container Store. Once your space is cleared, you will have a blank canvas to decorate as you see fit. Pick up some fresh home décor from Urban Home and Garden or Pottery Barn and start decorating!

If you are looking for a total change of scenery, try exchanging or rearranging furniture. Map your layout and find great stylized furniture made from sustainable materials from Arhaus or find new furniture for every room in the house at Restoration Hardware or Bassett Home Furnishings.

Expand Your Pallet

Treat your taste buds in 2020 to new restaurants at Easton! The RH Rooftop Restaurant is a beautiful eatery fashioned to look and feel like you are dining in a greenhouse. Enjoy an upscale meal surrounded by green vegetation and overlooking the landscape from a high vantage point. Afterward, check out the new Forbidden Root Brewery for botanically-inspired craft beer and apps.

Lastly, if you’re wanting to really get into the spirit of 2020, be sure to check out Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce Cafe & Club, now open at Easton. This restaurant fits perfectly within the theme of the roaring ’20s, as you access the club through a door at the back of the main kitchen—just like a speakeasy—and enjoy one-of-a-kind entertainment!
