For health, wellness and lots of fun!
Most of us approach the new year with goals and aspirations we hope to achieve – whether that’s to eat healthier, exercise more, spend more time with family or take new risks. The goal of this blog is to help! Taking on new challenges shouldn’t be without fun, though, and these destinations are nothing short of a good time.
Good Eats at Elemental Coffee
This small-batch roastery serves coffee in its purest form – delicious and perfect for energizing you on your travels. Just as impressive, Elemental’s food menu is filled with sandwiches, tacos, salads and toasts that are handcrafted with fresh, local ingredients and great for on-the-go. If you’re wanting to eat better, stop in to try the smoked salmon toast or the Kale Yeah! salad topped with cashew pine nut Caesar, kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. Elemental also has options for those considering dabbling in plant-based eating the vegan breakfast tacos are a must-try!
Free Yoga at Myriad Botanical Gardens
Is staying more active on your resolutions list? Try yoga at Myriad Botanical Gardens! Yoga is great for muscle strength and tone, increasing flexibility and maintaining a balanced metabolism – plus it’s an effective way to relax and manage stress. Saturdays in 2022, you can join free Botanical Balance Yoga classes indoors with a peaceful view of the beautiful downtown oasis. You’ll walk out refreshed and ready to take on everything the new year brings.
Ski OKC at RIVERSPORT
Staying active can be fun with RIVERSPORT’s Ski OKC attraction – and it’s a great way to brush up on your skills before you hit the slopes. The ski simulator features a quick inclination system, which allows the slope to go from a blue ski run to the equivalent of a black diamond run in seconds. The slope is close to the real thing with low-friction fibers that are misted with water to create a feeling similar to actual snow. If you’ve wanted to try your hand at skiing, this is a great local opportunity!
Rise to the Occasion at Summit Climbing Gyms
Climbing is a great form of exercise proven to strengthen muscles while being low impact, improve flexibility, challenge the cardiovascular system, combat chronic disease and help improve coordination. Summit, with locations in OKC and Norman, makes climbing fun and accessible to all ages and skill levels. If you’ve been looking for a fun way to incorporate exercise into your life, Summit is the place to reach new peaks in 2022.

Earlier in December, it brought in Devin Ratray, “Buzz” from Home Alone, for its screening of Mallrats!
Take a trip to Sulphur’s signature boutique hotel, The Artesian, for an afternoon of pampering and relaxation.
