Happy New Year! Getting healthier and more active is always a top New Year's resolution, and we're here to help. We've compiled a list of our favorite (and our readers' favorite) ways for the whole family to get out and get active in Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area in 2017.

Exercise your body and your brain

Take a family hike and learn about history, wildlife, and the natural world while you're at it! Our favorite place to exercise your mind and body in Marin is the Point Reyes National Seashore headquarters at Bear Valley, where you can hike the Earthquake Trail, visit a reconstructed Miwok village, meet some Morgan horses, and even become a Junior Ranger at the visitor center. Other great destinations for this include the Marin Headlands and Olompali State Historic Park near Novato.

Happy New Year!

Whether your resolutions are financial or not, to ensure success in keeping these resolutions you need to plan ahead (before January 1st is optimal) and create steps that progress so that you build on your success over time to accomplish a larger goal. It is positive momentum from these successes that is going to help you stick with your resolutions throughout the year.

Here are some easy steps to get your progressive resolution plan in place:
