SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 187
A geocacher’s secrets to making New Year’s resolutions stick
by Paige Edmiston.
Lose weight and get fit.
How much money do we spend on mechanical clothes hangers or other fitness trends only to drop them after a few weeks or less? Get out geocaching and hit those trails to help with a better you.
Make new friends.
Go geocaching with fellow geocachers, new geocachers, etc.
Find them at geocaching events. Doesn’t have to be a big event. Sometimes smaller is better.
Spend more time with family.
Hang on to the time you can go geocaching with your family members.
Sometimes they grow out of it.
Geocaching with your significant other
Drink more water.
The number one provision of geocachers is water. Always be sure to have enough with you for not only yourself but others in your geocaching party and your pets.
Be less stressed.
Some of my favorites is:
Walking in the Woods, during the different seasons.
Places of tranquility
There is nothing like geocaching in an area that you have never been.
Throw a dart and go for a day trip, weekend or more.
Utilize favorite points.
Go for areas known for excellent geocaching trails where you can possibly earn a geocoin.
Learn something new.
Puzzle or Mystery caches are a great way to learn some new technique you may never tried before. There are so many different ways of finding and opening geocaches that your geocaching pack may fill up rather quickly with gadgets and gizmos that you never thought you needed.
Step out of your comfort zone.
Many new geocachers believe that the only main type of geocaching adventures out there are the standard traditionals. Find the box, sign the log, put the box back, next.. But there are many other types like Earthcaches, Multi-caches, Whereigos and Lab Caches to name a few. Find out which ones interest you and go find them.
Go to places you have never been to!
Geocaching can help. Seriously. Watch this video to learn how to make a geocaching proposal.
Break a personal record.
Goals are a perfect way to set resolutions. If you say to yourself that you will find more geocaches this year you may try harder to do so. Though if you say I will find 200 more geocaches this year you are more apt to succeed.
Spend less time on social media.
Yes we live in a time where practically everyone has a cell phone permanently attached to their arm like a Borg implant. We can’t move without poking our nose into the latest trend or hot hashtag. It is time to make a conscious effort to disconnect from the media hive and find some good old you time. What better way than to go out into the world and go geocaching.
Spend more time in nature.
Nothing like taking a mountain trail, walking in a swamp, exploring a dense woods or forest. There are so many places to find geocaches all around the world. Get outside and find some memories.
One of the easiest ways to give back to the geocaching community is to become a part of it. Create cool geocaches, host geocaching events including CITO events to help keep our gameboard clean.
You don’t have to be a licensed nutritionist to realize that if you eat healthy and exercise that it will help your body overall. If you are willing to take the exercise aspect of your life why not go all the way and eat healthier too?
Start thinking more positively.
It seems to many that finding the negative in any game, sport or activity is the easy way to do things. Finding fault leads one to seeing only the most negative aspects. Why not try finding the positive and appreciating what you find? Personally I would rather witness the good in something rather than dwell within the bad.
Enjoy life to the fullest.
“Geocaching brings people together in pursuit of discovery, exploration, and adventure. ‘Nuff said.”
Really can’t beat that comment.
