New Years Resolutions

Is having a New Years Resolution really worth all the hype?
Diana Robinson

“New Year, New Me” is a saying that is said internationally. The act of changing your lifestyle to become your best self is so normalized that people get so fixated on “going hard” the second January 1st comes around. Once you get into it and realize that it can be a very difficult process, you realize that getting to where you want to be is more than just something you build overnight. That being said, it does not mean that it won’t happen.

Some resolutions may seem simple, but they can improve someone’s life in a small way. Although some may be small to others, it can be a big step for the person actually working on themself especially in the long run. 

“[My New Year’s resolution is] to be off of my phone more and stop procrastinating,” freshman Bridget Egner said.

Placing a goal that you wish to obtain allows you to work for something you deem to be difficult. It can build work ethic, mental strength, and physical strength. These hard goals can push you to limits that you never knew you had.

While these goals might be hard at first, if you keep trying you can end up accomplishing more than you thought you would.

“It’s been hard recently, but I feel like I’ve been doing a better job than I did last year,” Egner said.

All resolutions are made to better your health, for some like Egner it may be for a healthier lifestyle. But for Junior Maddie Zaleski, her New Year’s resolution is a little more of a physical health change. 

“[My New Year’s resolution is] to drink less energy drinks,” Zaleski said.

Wherever you are in your resolution journey, just know that many other people around the world are attempting to better themselves as well. In regards to New Year’s resolutions, you can always try again and continue to start back up again whenever, it’s all about you and how you live.
