Maybe DON'T with the New Year Resolutions...Here's why!
by Reneé Leon
If you read to the bottom of each monthly newsletter, you’ll always find a cheesy joke. This year, I came across this joke that made me pause (still read to the end for the ACTUAL cheesy joke of the month):
How can you be more efficient with New Year’s Resolutions?
Make a copy of your list so you can pull it out again next year!
This made me pause because it is often accurate. A dear friend (that’s you, Sarah) pointed out that the better time to assert oneself and make change is in the Spring or Fall. She cited that January is typically COLD (at least in our state) with fewer hours of daylight; lack of sunlight affects human moods (ever heard of Seasonal Affected Disorder?) while snow makes everything harder. The most common Resolutions are about improving diet, exercise, and productivity – all things made harder by the lack of sunlight and frigid temperatures.
I certainly don’t intend to be a downer nor to disparage anyone’s Resolutions; I merely want to remind everyone that self-improvement need not be limited to January! The holidays are usually hectic, plus year-end responsibilities can be exhausting. IDEA: this January, give yourself time to recover and get back on track. THEN gently consider how you want your year to go, what types of habits you’d like to build, and taking the initial steps to get there.
Of course, your vehicle is one of the most important tools for GO-ING anywhere! Keep it ready and able by staying up to date on maintenance. 😊 You know how to find us!
This is a SAVE THE DATE announcement for Saturday, April 1st, 2023.
This year we will resume our Customer Appreciation Event and it happens to be on our ACTUAL 10 Year shop anniversary!!!

I’ll be including more details in the upcoming months but do mark your calendars for Saturday, April 1st (it’s no joke)!

"Wife's Jeep was cold and ran like crap, Auto Pros got the jeep warm and running like a top. Wife is Happy, Life is good! Thanks Auto Pros!"
"As always, I take my vehicles here for work to be done. They are always courteous, professional in their assessment of what is an issue with the vehicle without padding the problems to create a larger bill. Fairly priced for the work and parts being worked on."
