With a new year always comes new year’s resolutions, but as the years have been going by more people have stopped making them. They are too hard to keep with and it seems like many people have just decided they aren’t worth the time. How much can a person really change in a year?
Taking the time to write down goals for the new year has proven to help better a person. Creating realistic goals can help through the year and you can far achieve what you thought you could.
“I want to get my body, soul and mind on the best track for my future. I want to be the best me I can be in all aspects of life.” explains Taeja Villagrana
Resolutions like this can help set realistic expectations for the next year. As people continue to create goals to better themselves, if they are stuck to, they can continue to create good habits for their future.
“I want to stay on top of my running, and I’ve decided to get rid of soda out of my diet.” enthusiastically says Oaklee Bond.
As well as becoming aware of knowing where your intentions are there are good benefits. This new year’s is a chance to get back in the groove. Even if you haven’t thought of it yet, reach for the stars.
“I didn’t make any. I guess it sort of went over my head! I guess I’ll have to do that!” laughs Dayton Ferree.
Even if you aren’t sure you could keep up with a new year’s resolution it doesn’t hurt to try. The benefits outweigh the challenges. This year learn something new, continue creating lasting friendships, and help those around you. Make sure this year is something looked back on as a good thing. Have no regrets and continue making an impact on the world!
