We’ve all fallen into the trap of our will power testing us, and us falling prey to the lack of it. Resolutions don’t need a day dedicated to it, they say. But the good part is that we at least start somewhere. And what is better than kicking off a New Year with better plans, right? We're bringing you the best of few things. And we hope you make this year worth it, for yourself.

Run It Out

No better way to stay fit than jogging or running it out in the open. While Mumbai seems like a cramped up city, it also has lush green gardens and running tracks for you to burn those calories you've been wanting to, since forever! 

If you live in or around Malabar Hills, and are seeking some morning solace before the day's grind sucks the energy out of you, paying a visit to Priyadarshini Park is a must!

Want to jog across a fish pond and a wooden bridge? Nirvana Park inside Hiranandani Gardens of Powai should be on your list then.

While it is the most mainstream one for every south Mumbaikar, we cannot deny the fact that Shivaji Park in Dadar also offers some great political and cultural history. Run to your heart's content, grab a cup of tea, and admire this significant piece of land.
