Life can fly by, full of stress and commitments; distractions and lost time. Living the good life doesn't ignore that reality, nor does it allow it to be an excuse.
New England Good Life is about carving out time or focus whenever possible to enjoy yourself and the world and people around you; it's about maximizing the potential of the day. Living well obviously can include great trips, but less obviously can include a calming sunrise before work, a shared meal, or a great conversation.
More importantly, New England Good Life is about achieving an emotional connection with your day and your surroundings. The good news is this means that living the good life doesn't require a winning lottery ticket, just a winning attitude. With the right focus, living the good life is a possibility for every one of us.
New England Good Life seeks to provide a home for inspiration. New England has so much to offer that can nourish both body and soul. From small businesses to locally sourced food; from amazing places to visit to great entertainment ideas; from bigger budget events to inexpensive or free activities, we strive to build an ever-expanding base from which to draw inspiration.
That inspiration can take many forms. Perhaps you're planning a trip and we're a resource from which to help assemble an itinerary. Or, perhaps you have a nearby farmers market and we can inspire an entire meal that's built in support of locally-sourced food from area farms and entrepreneurs.
New England Good Life also embraces the concept of community. So, if you have feedback for us, topics you wish to see featured, or discoveries and suggestions of your own, we'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave a comment on our blogs or our social media pages, or drop us an email!
