The making of New Year’s Resolutions is a tradition practiced all around the world. It derived back during the time of the Babylonians, over 4,000 years ago, and still carries over into today. People often use the idea of New Year’s as a time to close the door on a certain chapter in their lives, and begin fresh with a new one, which is where the resolutions come in.
New Year’s Resolutions are typically a decision to do, or not do, something in order to accomplish a personal goal or break a habit. Usually almost everyone makes them, so we figured it would be an interesting idea to ask the students of Westlake High School what their New Year’s Resolutions are.
Here are the top 10 New Year’s Resolutions of 2017:
- Be Happy
- Eat Healthier
- Dress Nicer
- Get Better Grades
- Get Better at Organization
- Surround Myself with Positive People
- Time Management / Less Procrastination
- Lose Weight
- Stay the Same / Not Change Myself
Whether people stick with them or break them, New Year’s Resolutions are a positive, happy trend that will live on through history. Hopefully reading some of these will inspire you. What’s your New Year’s Resolution?
