By KOREY FERRINGER-With the coming of the new year, many students have made New Year’s resolutions such as going to the gym, doing well in school, or even treating siblings well.
New Year’s resolutions are made to help people better themselves. Many students stick to their resolutions and carry them out. Those who forget about their resolutions, usually try harder the next year.
Many students have the same New Year’s resolutions. Sophomore Andre Rubinstein said, “My New Year’s resolution is to go to the gym and get fit.” While this is many students’ resolution, it could be done in many different ways, from just lifting weights in their free time to going to the gym a few days a week.
Students who have succeeded in keeping their resolution know how hard it is to keep them. Many students who finished previous resolutions have advice on keeping them.
Sophomore Ryan Francis says, “ If you’re doing a resolution, keep your mind on it and keep going.” Students who follow this advice tend to do better keeping their resolutions.
Throughout the years, students have thought of some pretty unique ways of keeping their resolutions. Junior Paige Sweeney offered, “My New Year’s resolution was to stop biting my nails, so to prevent myself from biting I put on dark nail polish.”
Other students stay away from certain foods if they are going on a diet, or even study certain days if they wanted to do better in school.
Failing a New Year’s resolution isn’t the worst thing either. If someone fails a resolution, that means they can just try harder next year or just pick off where they left off if they wanted too.
If dieting is your resolution, its okay if you have cheat days. Just don’t make them outnumber days that are spent dieting. Same thing with going to the gym, if someone doesn’t like to go to the gym, it’s okay if they take a day or two off every now and again.
