Life is all about a balance between discipline and working hard, and taking some time for yourself to relax, do what you love to do, and just enjoy life. Is it always easy to achieve this perfect balance? Definitely not, but it’s certainly something worth striving for.

Rationalizing The New Year

In the wake of the holiday season and the aftermath of New Years, many people tend to freak out and go into this default mode of “Oh man, I really need to make a bunch of major lifestyle changes. It’s time to hit the gym, drop some weight, abstain from booze, and put myself on a strict diet.” There’s nothing wrong with the desire to improve yourself, of course, but we truly think that a lot of people go about this in a hasty and not-well-thought-out manner.

Living A Happy And Healthy Life

Indeed, it’s important to realize that the journey to a happier and healthier life is exactly that — a journey. It takes time to make significant improvements in your life, and if you try to go completely cold turkey on your not-so-ideal habits with the hope of completely transforming your life in a matter of weeks or days, then you’re going to have a bad time.

Here’s something that you already know, but probably don’t pay much attention to: no one knows what’s going to happen next. You never know if you’re going to find a new job opportunity tomorrow, get into an accident next week, or meet the love of your life in an hour. Life is full of many uncertainties, and that’s what’s so beautiful about our time here on Earth. It keeps things interesting, unpredictable, fresh, and fun.

Enjoying Life: Anchor Inn Is The Perfect Spot

That’s why we encourage the communities of Lantana, Hypoluxo Village, Lake Worth, and West Palm Beach, and everywhere else that surrounds our waterfront seafood restaurant to embrace the mantra of carpe diem, or simply to “live life to the fullest.” Is that generic life advice? Is that equivalent to the now-outdated phrase “YOLO” (You Only Live Once)? Maybe, maybe not. That’s up for you to decide based on how you live your life and the decisions that you make. But if there’s a single takeaway from our blog post here, it’s simply to enjoy life while you’re living it.

So, don’t totally freak out if you’re not dropping everything and hitting the gym with a furious vengeance against all of the bad decisions you made over the holidays. We encourage you to drink plenty of water, exercise, and eat a reasonably healthy diet, all while moderating your alcohol consumption. But we also encourage you to head down to our seafood restaurant and tiki bar in Lantana for great people, great music, great drinks, and great food.

We’ll see you soon. From our staff to our readers, Lakeside Anchor Inn wishes you a belated Happy New Year! Don’t forget to check out our upcoming events and specials by following us on Facebook.
