Reduce your carbon footprints

There’s no better time than now to commit to a sustainable and more eco-friendly lifestyle. By switching to biking instead of riding a car for transportation, you can reduce your carbon footprint while enjoying physical health benefits as well—so it’s a win-win for you and the environment. 

To travel through various terrains, you can opt for a mountain bike like the Trinx B1200 Elite Hydro Mountain Bike which ensures durability and long-lasting performance with its alloy frame, steel suspension fork, and hydraulic brakes.

Discover (or relive) a fun hobby

Aside from giving you a creative outlet and stress relief, a hobby you truly enjoy can bring you one step closer to self-improvement. As part of your life-enriching resolutions for the year, try discovering a new hobby (or rediscovering your love for an old one) like playing a musical instrument. 

With a comfortable build perfect even for beginners, the Squier Classic Vibe ‘70s Precision Bass helps give you a smooth intro to playing the bass. Inspired by the vintage look of the original P Bass, it features a slim C-shaped neck profile, narrow yet tall frets, and a 9.5” fingerboard that makes it easier to play. No need to compromise on the audio quality for this comfort either, because this bass has Fender-designed pickups that produce a massive and rich tone.
