We've been talking about the post-holiday season blues today in the office! We're talking the no more chocolate in the office and home, back-to-school, back-to-work, less money-spending, less-singing/jolly spirited, and diet-starting type of days...If you know what we mean! The good news is that in Utah Valley, there is always something going on to help fight the blues. We've made it a goal here in the office to stick to our New Year's resolution which is:

Get out and do something enjoyable every day, and something special each week! 

This means, trying something new and not letting ourselves sucker into too many "stay at home and pop in a Redbox" nights. There is just flat out too much to see, do, eat and experience all the time. And studies show that staying active helps fight away blues and increases quality of life. So that is our resolution. What's yours? Perhaps you might consider sneaking a resolution like ours into your list, start it this weekend and check out one of these events:

FLOORED! An all-new show from The Vibe
When: January 4 - 12, 2013
Where: SCERA
Phone: 801-225-2569
Time: 7:30pm
Price: $10 - $8

This award-winning dance company has been nationally recognized on TV shows including FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, Paul Abdul’s Live To Dance and ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. Do you recognize seeing them on any of these?? We think this is a great show to see in person-here in Utah Valley!

Sundance Ladies' Cross Country Ski Clinic
When: January 5, 2013
Where: Sundance Resort
Phone: 801-223-4170
Time:: 10:00am-12:30pm
Price: $30 per person

Every year this event keeps growing larger. Ladies are invited to take part in an enjoyable "ladie's only" environment to stay in shape, meet friends, stay safe, and keep things affordable. All levels, including beginners and pro's, are invited to attend-and yes, lessons are available if you would like help! All ladies who show up for the event will be equipped and catered to, but sign up now and call in to reserve your spot. This sounds like one great workout to kick off the new year right.

UVU Women's Basketball vs Texas-Pan Am
When: January 5, 2013
Where: UCCU Center
Time: 3:00pm
Price: $3 General Admission
Spending quality time with family is also another item on several people's new year's resolution lists! We like this event a lot because it's quick access, low-key, inexpensive, and great fun to spend cheering on local athletes. Plus! Lots of free things, including great t-shirts, are thrown out during games.

UVU Men's Basketball vs NJIT
When: January 5, 2013
Where: UCCU Center
Time: 7:05pm
Price: $5 General Admission

This is another great game to catch! NJIT is one of UVU's biggest rivals and toughest competition. They'll need your help as they take them on. Again, lots of fun opportunities to participate in a half-time or time-out activity and grab free t-shirts. Easier access than a busy BYU game, lots of room, and great time to teach your kids about athletics!

BYU Women's Basketball vs San Francisco
When: January 5, 2013
Where: Brigham Young University Marriott Center
Time: 2:00pm
Price: Varies on seating

For our Cougar fans, this game is perfect for all families and individuals! Afternoon games are great for a variety of reasons, including kid's sleeping schedules on, but the Cougar's are also having a phenomenal season and you won't want to miss out on witnessing their talent!
