New year, new goals: how to make a fresh start in Elsternwick Village

For years our New Year’s resolutions were pretty much the same: lose weight, advance career, stick to a budget – the usual suspects. But two years of a pandemic has changed all that.

We’ve looked at our lives, our priorities and the things that really matter to us, and as we emerge from two years of living with restrictions, our new year goals are looking a little different.

For many of us, our New Year’s resolutions are going to be more about self-care, love, gentleness and appreciating life for all the wonderful things it offers.

Whether your new year goals are big changes or minor adjustments, Elsternwick Village has everything you need to achieve them, and make a fresh start, stronger and better than ever.

Rest and recharge

Increasingly, we’re hearing about the importance of rest to our mental and physical wellbeing. Yet switching off is something most of us allocate to the couple of weeks of the year we vacation at the beach.

Recharging should actually be a year-round pursuit, and something we learn to incorporate into our everyday lives. Happily, Elsternwick Village is here to help you kick this New Year’s goal!

Glo Health is your go-to for all wellness needs, featuring a health food and beauty store, organic grocery and a wellness clinic, as well as practitioners specialising in remedial massage, shiatsu, acupuncture, and other holistic remedies.

The Reflexology Studio will help you de-stress and revive your tired body through your feet; Remedy Bar offers a variety of massage types, as well as reiki; and Takagi Massage specialises in relaxation massage in a luxurious setting.

Embrace a new fitness regime

It’s often said that the fitness regimes that we stick to are the ones we find interesting and fun – so now’s the time to ditch the same-old-same-old and try something new and challenging at Elsternwick Village.

Get pedalling in a spin class at 6 Degrees South Health and Fitness or knock out your stress in a boxing class at 12RND Fitness.

If you think core strength and inner peace might be more your thing, check out Strong Pilates and Core Physio & Pilates.

Or make it all about you and book in a few one-on-one personal training sessions at Zap Fitness or get the physiologists and exercise scientists at BFT Elsternwick to put together an individually tailored program.

Discover healthy food

Feeling good is all about eating well, and at Elsternwick Village, healthy food choices are anything but boring!

Check out the exciting salad, soup and smoothie menu at Healthy Point or the legendary açaí bowls at Green Remedy. If you prefer your healthy dish to be kosher, you can’t go past Mama Falafel.

Cooking meals at home? Keep them healthy fresh, with in-season produce from Elsternwick Village’s local greengrocers.

Try something new

The best way to up your motivation and inspiration is by taking up a new hobby or nailing a new skill.

Maybe you can tap into your inner Demi Moore and take up ceramics at Ceramiques, or sign up for a yoga course and nail your downward dog at Yoga Tree.

Best of all, trying something new can be as simple as switching out your everyday activities. Sample books from different genres at Avenue Bookstore or grab tickets for a film you normally wouldn’t choose at Classic Cinemas – it’s all about opening up your mind and expanding your options!

We can all use a fresh start, and this year most of us will say we need it more than ever. At Elsternwick Village, you can turn your New Year’s resolutions into long-lasting lifestyle changes, and leap into the new year with health, happiness, and peace.
