Most effective New Year’s resolution


Emily Mangione

With the new year just beginning, it is important to reach your goals and set a schedule to meet them. If you continue on this goal, then by 2023 you will feel accomplished and the best version of yourself.  

Even though it might be hard to believe, 2021 has come to an end and 2022 is here. It is a tradition upon many to make a New Year’s resolution that they will try their best to stick to, even if they do not make it the full year. Here are some New Year’s Resolutions that will improve your day-to-day life. 


#1- Getting more exercise 


Being active every day might sound like a lot of work but even a quick 10-minute workout YouTube video counts. Your body needs exercise and fitness to help keep you healthy. Plus, if you exercise for a whole year on a routine, it is practically guaranteed that you will see physical improvement.


#2- Travel more 


Another New Year’s Resolution is to travel more and see new places to kick off the start of a hopefully fantastic year. If you hop on a plane and explore some unseen destinations with your friends and family, you’re sure to have an amazing time. It is important to be adventurous and take a few risks to see the world because, in the end, it will all be worth it. 


#3- Go vegan 


If you are undecided about whether you should go vegan or vegetarian, then using it as your New Year’s Resolution is a great way to see if that lifestyle is right for you. Being vegan or vegetarian is a big commitment that most people struggle with, it takes a dedicated person to cut out all animal products in their life.


#4- Dedicate more time to school 


Your grades are something that will always be important because it has a huge impact on your path in the future, which is why putting more time in and studying with all your effort is such a big deal. Some tips to help focus better are to put your phone in another room, listen to peaceful music, study in a quiet place, and eat a healthy snack before you start.


#5- Focus more on you 


Having a healthy mindset in the morning when you wake up can truly change the outlook for the rest of the day. Spending more time off your phone, meditating, journaling every day, talking to someone you trust, and spending time with people that make you the best version of yourself are all ways to improve your mental state.


New Year’s Resolutions are not for everyone but having a goal to work toward at the beginning of every year makes people feel determined and ready to conquer the fresh start of the upcoming year.
