Selma offers ways to keep New Year’s promises

Published 9:00pm Monday, February 4, 2013

According to the ground hog Punxsutawney Phil, winter’s cold days are numbered and an early spring is on it’s way. And as we count down the days to sunshine and sunscreen, we hope all those New Year’s resolutions, which were now made more than a month ago, are staying strong.

Whether your resolution was to slash some numbers off the scale, manage money better or to try something fun, like a new hobby, we are confident that Selma has just the right outlet to make that resolution become a reality.

The Selma-Dallas County YMCA offers an array of fitness programs that target healthy living. Whether it’s a rigorous step class or relaxing yoga session, the Y can serve a wide variety of fitness needs. And if you’re planning on participating in the 6th annual Butterflies and Bridges 8K race, which will be held April 20, we highly recommend visiting the Y to shred as many seconds off your time as possible.

New Live Oaks Cemetery will also soon be in full bloom with beautifully colored azaleas. So, if you’re looking for a less expensive way to enjoy Selma and practice healthy living, we encourage you to take a stroll around this soon to be breathtaking scene.

Also, if you’re in search for something new and exciting, look no further then the Selma Art Guild, which is hosting a variety of classes throughout February to “chase away the winter blues.” Ceramics, fused class and gourd making are just a few classes we highly recommend you give a try.

These are just a few examples of fun activities which will help to not only address those sometimes hard to keep resolutions, but will give you a dose of fun in the process. After all, if our groundhog friend is correct, bikini season is right around the corner.
