New Year's Resolution?

By Kaya Diebes


Starting thousands of years ago, New Year’s Resolutions have evolved drastically, but how many people actually continue the whole year with them? According to Business Insider, 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February, so the odds are stacked against you. Of course there’s always ways to help keep one, but first you have to pick a fun one alongside a more serious one.

Ways to make your resolution become your BFF:

Specific

If your resolution is too vague it’s less likely to happen. Therefore if you make a more specific goal, something like “I’m going to save $100 every month.” instead of “I’m gonna go ahead and save some money this year”, you’re more likely to keep your resolution.

Achievable

To make your resolution achievable you have to start small. Let’s say that your resolution is to get into better shape. Instead of saying that you need to work out everyday, start with, “I’m going to go for a run every week.”

Relatable

Being passionate about your resolution will help you stick with it. Make your resolution something you really care about, something that can relate to your day to day routine.

Time for some fun resolutions:

  1. Laugh and smile more often.
