At the beginning of the New Year we make resolutions that "this is the year I'm going to keep". But most of us struggle to hold up the promise and even end up failing in the first month. After asking people what New Years resolutions they have for 2017, I realised how much a scooter could help! A scooter? Yes a scooter :) Adding a scoot into your day will not only make you feel great but goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle and makes trips so much better.
Here's how a scooter can help you succeed with these common new years resolutions:
Spending more time with the kids
We all know kids love to scoot and it's a great form of active play. With your very own scooter you can spend quality time doing an activity you both enjoy. Join in the morning scoot to school and no chasing behind but keeping up.
Stay fit and healthy... even lose weight
Scooting is a great low impact form of exercise. It burns up to 300 calories an hour, more than cycling (270 cals) and double strolling on foot (149 cals). Scooting short distances throughout your day will help you get there fast and slip in a sweat-free workout. Incorporating a bit of fitness into your daily routine is the best way to make the lasting change.
Start a new hobby
Scooting is a fun way to travel and a healthy activity you can do easily at a moments notice. Finding new places to cruise and explore in your city in a whole new light. Discover cafes, shops and make stops wherever you please along the way.
Spend less and save more
Little costs here and there are what makes our piggy banks look sad. One frustrating cost we always have to pay for is fuel and parking (plus the fines you get when your running late). Leaving the car keys at home will save you money, avoid road rage and sitting in traffic.
A gym membership can be another large expense. There's nothing worse than being inside a hot stuffy gym in the middle of summer. We really should be getting outdoors and enjoying the weather while it lasts. Once you've got your scooter you can enjoy getting outside, with free workouts and travel! Now just imagine how much you can save... it's a no-brainer ;)
Live life to the fullest
Release your inner child and live a little. Scooting is just as much fun for adults as it is for kids! And if you don't think adults scooting is cool... If Hugh Jackman, Alessandra Ambrosio and Jamie Oliver do it... Trust me, it's cool.
Although you can't scoot overseas, you can get further and explore more. What takes 20 mins to walk, takes only 6 to scoot. Get further on your lunch break and make quick trips easily.
Less time on screens
We like to tell the kids off for being glued to the TV, phones, computers and gadgets but what about us... Getting outdoors always makes us feel good afterwards so why don't we do more of it. Scooting down to the shop or to friends place lets us some fresh air, help us de-stress and provides a well deserved break. If you've been at work staring a computer screen most of the day, like me, going for a scoot is a great way to re-energise and refresh.
Be more environmentally conscious
Have you been a bit slack over the past year keeping it green? When you can, choosing to leave the cars keys behind is a great way to get back on track. Alternative forms of transport like using your scooter is great for our planet and will make you feel good about reducing your carbon foot print.
