Many of us set goals for ourselves at the beginning of the year, but sticking with our New Year's resolutions can be a struggle. To make it easier on all of us, the team at Kia of South Austin has put together this list of places you can go in the Austin area to help you succeed in your goals.

Ready to get started? Let’s make 2017 the year you conquer your resolution!

Stay Fit and Healthy

Maybe 2016 was the year you kicked it in gear and lost some weight, or maybe you’re simply interested in learning how to take a healthier approach to meal time. Either way, there are phenomenal restaurants in the Austin area that use fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients to reduce our impact on the environment while providing delicious meals throughout the year. Visit the Bouldin Creek CafeMr. Natural, or Counter Culture for plenty of tasty, low-calorie, and veggie-friendly options. 

Lose Weight and Stay Healthy

Whether you're ready to pump iron, do some cycling, or just practice your meditative breathing, you can't go wrong in Austin. Check out South Austin GymRIDE Indoor Cycling, and Wanderlust Yoga and see which works out best for you.

Enjoy Life to the Fullest

This means something different for everyone. Take in a show at The Paramount Theatre, catch some live music at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theatre, or watch the latest movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Want to pick up a new hobby? Try your hand at painting or playing a new instrument. Whatever you decide, Austin and the surrounding areas have plenty of ways for you to live your best life in 2017.

Spend Less, Save More

Looking to get out of the house but still trying to save some money? Never fear! You might be surprised to find that Austin has plenty of free activities. If you’re looking to get a tighter grip on your finances, there are also plenty of free apps, such as Mint, Digit, and Acorns, that can help you keep track of spending habits while also helping you save at the same time.

Spend More Time with Friends and Family

Nothing beats having a home-cooked meal with your family, but there are other ways you can enjoy the company of family and friends. Explore the Austin Zoo together, conduct cool experiments at the Texas Museum of Science and Technology, or admire the art at the Blanton Museum of Art. If you’re looking for a casual coffee shop to catch up with friends, try Houndstooth Coffee, Epoch Coffee, or Bennu Coffee
