New Year – Old Us. Just Better.

So how about those New Year’s resolutions? We’re kidding – no pressure here. And while setting yourself goals to increase your life quality is great, we often seem to fail. Why? Psychologists suggest that may be due to the lack of clarity in the objective or the feeling of discouragement. We say forget the idea of opening a blank page or starting anew. Let’s continue writing our story, taking failures as lessons and improving with each page. So this year it’s the old us. Just better. And if you are looking for ways to enrich your life too – we have a few suggestions that may help you live a happier, more fulfilled life.

Yoga is great for both your body and mind. Some of scientifically  proven yoga benefits include decreasing stress, relieving anxiety, improving heart health and, of course, helping you get fit. If you have never been before – take a friend with you and head to one of your local yoga classes in Lisbon

I don’t know how about you, but we’re ready to mix up our home-cooking repertoire. From traditional Portuguese recipes to healthier options, there are many cooking classes and workshops in Lisbon to spice up your menu. We Highly recommend going for the whole friend group experience – wine usually included.

Feel like kicking ass this year? High intensity activities help in both mental and physical determination and building confidence. Sweat gets rid of toxins – all those leftovers from holiday celebrations. There are variety of classes and memberships for various boxing, jiu-jitsu, cross-fit, and other martial arts in Lisbon!


Art is not only for artists. It’s for everyone who seeks self-expression, creative relaxation or maybe just the rewarding feeling of creating something from scratch.

And while learning from mistakes is important, don’t forget to celebrate the small victories! Becoming our better selves is not always easy but definitely a very rewarding process.
