New Year’s is a time for reflection. Not many of us will be looking back on the year that was 2020 with much positivity but taking the time to absorb and accept what transpired over the last 365 days is important for facing the next year head on.

To begin, I’m not going to make any unrealistic promises and tell you Santa will bring you a six pack on Christmas morning if you follow this advice.

How much do you know about a mountain range called the Andes? Maybe you know it’s the longest mountain range in the world and the fact that it stretches over 7 different South American countries.

If you did, kudos on your general knowledge.
