If 2016 is going to be the year you finally quit smoking or lose those extra 25 pounds, you're going to have to do something differently from what you've always done. It's easy to find yourself in March eating Cheetos out of the family size bag telling yourself it's

Enough is enough; It's time to kick your ass into shape. No more meals that come in the mail. No more at-your-own-pace walks around the block. If 2016 is going to be the year you're going to see a real change, it's time to take some drastic measures — drastic measures that include the words "muscle" and "farm" in them. Crossfit Muscle Farm in Ft. Lauderdale is not where you want to start off if you need to lose 100 pounds —

4. Deerfield Beach
200 NE 21st Ave,
Lots of people make it a point to spend more time with their family in the upcoming year, by why not double-up and make it a point to spend more time with the family at the beach in 2016? Any beach can do, but Deerfield is an especially fantastic family friendly beach that has ample parking and the least fuss of any beach in Broward County. Instead of watching that show tonight, or letting your wife take the kids to the mall for the one-hundredth time this year — head out the beach and make a day of it.
3. Financial Advisors
210 N University Dr #401
If you're getting to the point where you're a full fledged adult that needs to start figuring out the best ways to put some change away for the future, it might be time to actually take the step beyond saving actual change in your pockets from your Publix runs.

In 2016 it's time to come to grips with the fact that maybe you can't do it all on your own.

1099 E Oakland Park Blvd.
Stop hoarding in 2016! It's time to clean out all that crap from your closet and garage and get more organized — but don't throw that stuff on the curb — donate it to Goodwill. You can claim it on your taxes and it would be doing something nice for someone, so you'd be basically killing so many resolution-birds with one stone it almost doesn't make sense not to give things away.
