All About Cape: Getting Healthy in the New Year


Welcome to the twenties!  They are back in full swing, and I bet your resolutions are, too.  I am sure you have heard the bleak statistics:  according to a study by the University of Scranton, just eight percent of people achieve their New Year’s goals.  And you can be one of them.  Cape Girardeau is an exceptionally supportive community.

If your goal is to get healthier or live a more active lifestyle, try to check out any of the trails and parks around Cape Girardeau.  Plus, there are a lot of healthy eating options featuring fresh smoothies and vegan alternatives.

Or did you resolve to spend more time with your family?  Bring everyone out to Discovery Playhouse or the SportsPlex for fun, quality time. There is a great opportunity to become Bear Aware and leave with a piece of bear artwork.  Come out to the Cape Conservation Nature Center for Bear Paint Pour on Thursday, January 9.

Expand your outdoor skills from identifying trees, cooking outdoors and hearing stories around the campfire on a cold winter night are all just waiting for you during January.  Be sure to check out the activities at the nature center for your family enjoyment.  This will also fit right into some of those healthy resolutions for the new year; nothing is any healthier than a walk along the trails at the county park and they are always available to you!
