See Boston From a New Perspective Aboard a Harbor Sunset Yacht Cruise

Have you ever wondered how the rich and famous wined and dined in the Roaring Twenties? Climb aboard the Northern Lights for a Harbor Sunset Yacht Cruise on Boston Harbor, and you’ll find your answer. The 1920s-style steamship might not be quite what you expect when you think of a “yacht,” but at the height of the watercraft’s popularity in the early 20th century, a cruise aboard one was considered a sign of wealth and high standing in society. Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout March, the Northern Lights will welcome guests for two-hour rides around Boston Harbor. The cruise includes just a bit of commentary from a well-versed tour guide as you pass by major landmarks, but you’ll mostly just be able to kick back and enjoy the ride. With a full bar and light snacks available for purchase on board the boat (only credit cards are accepted), you’ll be able to enjoy happy hour and golden hour at the same time. Tickets start at $47.25 and an ID is required to board.

How to Refresh and Reorganize Your Apartment for 2022

The new year offers an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start fresh with a newly calibrated outlook and freshly minted goals. And while many people use the changing year as a chance to improve upon their physical self, why stop there? Now is the perfect time to reevaluate your living space, as well, to ensure that it’s up to the task of serving as the backdrop for your daily to-dos and triumphs. Read on for a few easy ways to refresh and reorganize your apartment for 2022.

Declutter and de-stress. Curb clutter in your apartment by getting rid of outdated paperwork, unnecessary collectibles, and other items that tend to collect on surfaces, paying special attention to your desk, kitchen counters, and nightstands. Do this one room at a time so that you won’t feel overwhelmed by the process, and don’t forget to add in some mood-boosting houseplants!

Whittle your wardrobe. Try this trick to help you whittle down your wardrobe to the essentials: Pick one day in the near future to turn all of the clothes hangers in your closet in the same direction. After wearing an item, turn the hanger the opposite direction. If after six months, any of the hangers are still in their initial position, donate or consign the item of clothing.

Redecorate to rejuvenate. In with the new; out with the old! Retire worn, unwanted furnishings and breathe life into your space by trying out a new decorating trend. In 2022, some interior design trends include touchable textures, Parisian-inspired interiors, curved furnishings, and colorful window treatments!

Sign Up for a Class at The Dance Complex

If your New Year’s resolution is to prioritize self-care, start with the stretch class at The Dance Complex. Its instructor Lisa Simon has spent decades perfecting the calming class, piecing together relevant elements from her training in dance, sports, physical therapy, and yoga. She designs a slowly flowing stretching routine that can be changed to cater to any skill level.

Drop in for the soothing stretch session, or get your adrenaline pumping at a high-octane class like cardio kickboxing. Your instructor will show you the proper techniques to attack the bag using boxing gloves, interspersing the boxing with jumping rope and other cardio elements. The public roster of exercise classes also includes many forms of dance, from all-levels of street dance to Bollywood, ballet, and even Hawaiian hula. Most of the courses cater to beginners (or can be modified so that novices can participate), so don’t worry if you’ve never attended a dance class before. You should be able to easily join in the dance session. If you’re more comfortable exercising in the comfort of your own home, sign up for one of the virtual classes. The calendar of virtual classes is still expansive and varied.
