New Year’s Resolutions


Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions? Every time a new year comes around, people make New Year resolutions. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to eat healthy and go to the gym. People who go to the gym on the regular often times get annoyed with these people, because the gym that was once not that crowded is now very crowded. A month or so into the new year people give up on their New Year’s resolution. 

People often make New Year’s resolutions based on things they need to do but do not have the motivation to do. Having a New Year’s resolution helps them to be motivated. Senior Graci Hargrave said, “I have a New Year’s resolution to be a more positive person.” Going into the new year you may want to get more fit, you may need to clean your house, or maybe just need to do better at something. This is a good way to get motivated about something; however, people often do not keep their New Year’s resolutions for a long time.

Personally, I do not believe in New Year’s resolutions. They are pointless because people often times do not follow through with them, and if you give yourself a New Year’s resolution and do not fully follow through with it, you will just disappoint yourself. You can improve your life on a day to day basis rather than trying to over a span of a year. I talked to senior Piper Blancher, and she said, “I do not believe in New Year’s resolutions because if you really wanted to change something about yourself you would have done so and not waited until the new year started.” This goes to show that you do not need a New Year’s resolution to change something about yourself or to change something in your life.
