With the New Year upon us we thought we’d take a look at 5 New Year’s resolutions you can try at the pub. A tradition that derives from the ancient Babylonians nearly 4000 years ago, when it comes to New Year’s resolutions we’re certainly not new in giving them go, and with nearly half the country reportedly setting themselves one for 2019 here’s our top 5 resolutions you can try in your local.
Whilst the pub may not be your first stop when thinking about a new years health kick, you may be surprised to find out what’s on offer. January marks the start of veganuary and if your new year’s resolution is about healthy eating, vegan and vegetarian options have grown significantly, with over 3 million of the British nation expected to be vegan in 2019. It’s time to say hello to Veganuary.
Be More Social
Put down the TV remote and get to the pub. Research studies have shown that that people with strong social networks can increase their life span by as much as 50%. If that’s not an excuse to head to local then we don’t know what it is?
Learn a New Skill
Local pubs are a hub spot for community activity and behind the chitter chatter of the bar you can find everything from Morris dancing, yoga, knitting and more.
Top tip: Although these are not always advertised groups will often be delighted to welcome new members. Speak to the bar staff to find out what community events are happening at your local and you never know this time next year you could be stretching your way into 2020.
From speed dating to love at first pint the pub is no stranger when it comes to the story of love, with research revealing the relaxed environment of a pub was why over a third of the nation chose this as the setting for the first date with their partner.
However, if online dating is more your thing, with free WiFi in all our pubs there really is no excuse.
See the World
There’s no time like the present so make 2019 count and plan that trip of a lifetime. Whether it’s 12 countries in 12 months, backpacking round Australia or that trip to Disneyland, these all take planning and the sooner you start the sooner they’ll become reality.
A great place to meet people from all over the world, the pub can provide the perfect spot for some holiday inspiration and of course you can always get the holiday vibes flowing with a cocktail or two.
