Get out of house move in 2023

Step away from technology and enjoy some local activities; it's good for your physical and mental health
Cary Radisewitz, Luverne

It’s that time of the year for our 2023 New Year’s resolutions.
If you find yourself in or near Luverne, you don’t have to look far.
If you’re looking for a place to start a resolution to be more fit, I’d recommend the Luverne Aquatics Center.
Sam Honerman and her staff can help you reach your fitness goals.
The facility is quite amazing. You can do anything from water walking to lap swimming, weightlifting, yoga, bike riding, treadmills, senior dance, kick boxing and more.
They’ll teach you how to use the equipment and give you nutritional advice. 
If you prefer fewer people and a more private setting, the Luverne Power and Fitness on Main Street has great exercise equipment as well.
Membership costs at both places are reasonable and senior citizens can probably get in free as part of their Medicare Advantage plans.
Mental health experts encourage us to turn off social media, Netflix and iPhones and to get outside more.
Humans are made to interact with others, and if your resolution is to socialize more and experience new things that are good for your brain, check out a Green Earth Players production at The Palace Theatre.
Play bingo or trivia at Take 16 Brewing. 
Visit the library and enjoy all the fun activities there.
And don’t forget about The Loop for walking or biking.
Generations has fun activities for everyone including quilting, cards, meals and games.
Get out and cheer on our high school athletes, whether at the gym or ice arena. We have wonderful youth who would appreciate your support.
A few places to find upcoming activities include, the community events listings in The Announcer and/or the recently distributed Luverne Community Education catalog.
If your resolution for 2023 involves more focus on spiritual health, Luverne is also the place to come.
Consider joining a church or being more active in your current church.
Plan more focused time with your family members.
Register as a volunteer with A.C.E. of SW Minnesota.
Sign up a big brother/sister or just help a neighbor.
If you have a little extra in the nest egg, consider a local gift to the Luverne Community Foundation (LACF). They hand out dollars to well deserving area nonprofits that involve bettering your health, experiencing new events or having some fun.
Good luck with your New Year’s resolutions and have a happy and healthy 2023.
