1. Get FIT
Is getting fit and healthy high up on your NYR list for 2014?

Why not challenge yourself by training up for an event?

Instead of saying I will exercise for 30 minutes a day (by the third day you already feel like giving up on the resolution!) work yourself up towards an event so that you have more of an incentive, and rather than a certain weight goal; you're going for a strength, agility and endurance goal!

You'll certainly lose weight and you'll also have fun while doing it.

There will be days that challenge you but what was ever worth doing without a few trials and tribulations along the way? And at the end of the day you will accomplish more than getting fit, you'll prove to yourself that you can do anything you put your mind to!

Check out a couple of these events you might want to enter:

The Sunshine Coast Marathon is held on August 24 and starts at Alexandra Headland, Cotton Tree.

Or how about the Noosa Tri Multi Sports Festival? It's going to be held on November 2 and starts in Noosa.


For 2014 do you want to get your creative juices flowing and feel a part of something bigger? Skip the movies every week and make sure to attend some events that will really inspire you! From music festivals, to flower gardens open for viewing, enjoy the moment of truly being alive by joining in on the festivities below:

From January 17-19, drop by the Ginger and Flower Festival a pleasure for all the senses and all the family.

April 19 will be a great day too for all you foodies out there, when the Kenilworth Cheese, Wine and Food Festival will be held.

The month of May will also prove to be a month full of events to delights artists and foodies alike, kicking off the month is the Maleny Wood Expo held on May 3 & 4, and on those some dates, the Australian Body Art Carnivale at Eumundi.

Later in the month, the widely acclaimed Noosa International Food & Wine Festival will take place from May 15-18.

May isn't done with us yet, if you've had enough of exploring the culinary faire, on May 17 head over to Woombye to catch The Big Pineapple Festival or Coolum to attend the Golden Days Festival.

Whichever events you choose, May looks to be a month to mark your calendars for this year.

The next big month for 2014, looks to be July as far as I know, with the extremely popular Queensland Garden Expo opening in Nambour again from July 11-13, and The Noosa Long Weekend presented from July 18-27.

September is the month for music lovers! Kick off September with the Noosa Jazz Festival from September 4-7. Then end off the musical month at The Caloundra Fringe Festival from September 27 to October 7.

As of this date, the Woodford Folk Festival looks to be the event for December! From December 17 to January 1 enjoy a choice selection of concerts, dances, street theatre, film festivals, comedy sessions, acoustic jams and a wide variety of folk and innovative entertainment. As the website says, it is a festival where one can escape from 'reality' and immerse oneself in cultures from near and far. What better way to fulfil your New Year's Resolution to get inspired!
