The New Year’s resolution is a promise we make to ourselves to improve our present self for a better future. Most of us make at least one resolution but most of these pledges end without success by the end of January. Instead of just hoping for the best, American Car Center wants to encourage your success with proven methods of achieving and adhering to our most common New Year’s resolutions.
Avoid dieting. Speak with your health care practitioner to create a healthy meal plan that, instead of depriving, nourishes you with healthful foods, such as, fruits, vegetables, and fish that you will enjoy, and keep you strong and fit, for the long run.
Exercise is one of the best habits for keeping healthy and improving quality of life. As you start, don’t push yourself to the limits of exhaustion every time. Consistency is better. Reward yourself immediately after the workout. Enjoyment of the reward, a piece of chocolate, for instance, wires the brain to associate exercise with that pleasure. Soon, endorphin hormones will be released at the thought of the exercise without the reward.
Saving money and spending less
Pay yourself first. Figure out how much of your monthly gross you can safely set aside and take it right off the top, like taxes. Also, pay down your credit card bill as quickly as possible, so the debt does not take from what you manage to save.
Learning a new skill or hobby
These result in long-lasting happiness, but it can be a challenge starting and moving away from passive activities like watching television. The key is to minimize the effort of getting into the flow. For example, if you want to play the guitar, have it by your side in the living room. If you want to learn a language, have a language app on your phone’s home screen.
The easiest way to read more is to always have a book with you for those times you might otherwise be distracted by your phone, such as in waiting rooms, line-ups, or during breaks. Those small moments can add up to a lot of pages read.
Be sure to find pleasure in the process. For example, if the gym is not your cup of tea, try bike riding or basketball, instead. Set goals that are clear but achievable and establish small milestones to achieve as you go. Treat each as something of significance.
See the big picture: setbacks may come but do not regard them as failure. Fine-tune and keep going. Tune-out the critics and the naysayers, you are doing this for a healthier and happier you! Remember to support and encourage others in their own resolutions.
American Car Center wishes everyone a happy and healthy 2020, and for those dedicated to reaching their resolution: Keep at it! Tell American Car Center of your success stories.

There is no better reason to be a gridiron fan than to gather with family and friends, eat great food and whoop it up for your team in the tradition of the great American tailgate party – a longstanding festive pre-game carnival of football, food, and fun. Let’s see which teams have some of the most lively, unique and enthusiastic tailgate events across the Southeast.
The University of Mississippi hosts its fans not in a large parking lot but across 10 shady acres of oak trees, lavish tents, and catered food on its Oxford campus. From the original Tiger Walk to Toomer’s Corner and the Homeplate Tailgate, the gameday celebrations at Auburn University, in southeast Alabama, sprawl across the small city affectionately called the Loveliest Village on the Plains rich in football lore with rivalries dating to 1892. With so much intense focus on the team itself, the tailgate at Florida State University, in Tallahassee, is low-key but devout. The hottest spots are the booster lots outside Doak Campbell Stadium, especially when rivals from the Panhandle or Miami come to play.
Despite its location in Kentucky’s largest city, the tailgate at the University of Louisville has college-town charm, right down to the Cards March, lending inspiration to players as they face off against conference and state rival the University of Kentucky Wildcats in the annual Governor’s Cup game. The next installment takes place on Wildcat turf in Lexington this November. At Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama tailgaters may drink a Yellowhammer, named for the state bird and enjoy a side of Southern barbeque while singing, “Yea, Alabama”. The University of South Carolina fans tailgate on a train, near its Columbia campus. The 22-car South Carolina Cockaboose has comfy interiors and rooftop bars.
Tailgating at the University of Arkansas, in Fayetteville, is a beloved tradition of the Razorback gameday experience centered at The Gardens, south of the stadium. There are also many surrounding green spaces fans to go Hog wild. Woo Pig Sooie! Tiger Lane is the hub of the University of Memphis tailgate and gateway to the Liberty Bowl. From Tom the Tiger to the Mighty Sound of the South marching band, Memphis football fans are well entertained. The sights of maroon and white and sounds of the cowbell highlight the unique and wonderful tailgate and football atmosphere at Mississippi State University in Starkville. Bulldogs fans congregate at the Junction, where even visiting fans are welcome or cheer on players during the Dawg Walk.
At the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville, sail-gating is the thing. On gameday, a fleet of 250 boats, called the Vol Navy, parade the Tennessee River and musters outside the stadium decked out in bright orange. South Carolina’s Clemson University has a pre-game tradition described as “the most exciting 25 seconds in football”: After its players walk from the parking lot, greeting fans, they finish the procession, called the Tiger Walk, assembled on a hill above the east endzone before charging into Memorial Stadium upon cannon fire. The University of Florida, in Jacksonville, hosts one of the most anticipated tailgates on the college football calendar when the rival University of Georgia comes calling. The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party gets its name because the revelers who keep the party going in the parking lot might outnumber the spectators who actually enter the stadium for kick-off.
This season share your tailgating snacks and recipes with us on Facebook and tell us about your own traditions and memories. Before you start the BBQ and the teams rumble from the tunnel, make the dash to American Car Center. Our more than 50 conveniently located stores have a huge collection of terrific cars and SUVs, each with a limited powertrain warranty and oil changes for up to 3 years or 36,000 miles.

Late-model cars and SUVs don’t require extensive winterization routines, still, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your vehicle runs well this winter.
Check the battery. Cold weather is tough on your vehicle’s battery. Check and clean up areas of corrosion on connections and posts. Consider running a battery load test on batteries more than five years old.
Change the windshield wiper blades and refill your wiper fluid. Working windshield wipers and a solid supply of wiper fluid help ensure clear sightlines. Replace frayed or worn wipers and top up your wiper fluid tank with a lower-freezing temperature fluid.
Examine the four-wheel drive. Working correctly, Four-wheel drive can provide better traction when driving on snowy and icy roads. Have it examined by a mechanic before winter weather sets in to ensure the system engages smoothly and that transmission and gear fluids are at their correct level.
Verify the anti-freeze mixture. The ratio of antifreeze to water in your radiator should be about 1:1 to prevent the coolant in your radiator from freezing. To check the composition of your radiator fluid, pick-up an inexpensive anti-freeze tester at an auto parts store.
Stock emergency supplies. You never know when you’ll need them, so be prepared by having your vehicle ready with emergency supplies, such as a blanket, new flashlight batteries and booster cables.
Adjust engine oil viscosity. In the winter, your engine will run more effectively with a thinner engine oil. Check your owner’s manual for information on proper viscosity levels for colder temperatures.
Visit American Car Center today for a vehicle to exceed your expectations this winter.
