As we welcome the new year, it in turn welcomes change in our lives. Setting a New Year’s resolution is a tradition of choosing to do or not do something. Personally, I’ve always set out to make my resolution to not have a resolution. Simply because most usually do not stick with them after the first 3 weeks on January. This year, however, I sat down and thought about what really matters to me and what I’d like to improve in my life and knew incorporating my thoughts into a New Year’s resolution would be an easy way to get myself on track. Whether you set out to make a resolution or not, you’re likely going to be making subtle changes in hopes of having a better year. I was curious as to see what members of the Her Campus Stockton team plan to set forth as their New Year’s resolution. Here’s what they told me:
“I make a resolution one every year because I enjoy setting positive guidelines for myself! I would like to work out more than twice a week, train for a 5k, get out of my comfort zone more, try yoga, and be a better person!” – Melissa Scammacca
“To eat healthier and cleaner (probably won’t last)!” – Mikaela Riley
“My resolution is to stop being late and show up early to everything. I want to keep myself and life organized.” – Aliyah Goni
“My New Year’s resolution is to be more accepting of myself. And to take care of myself both physically and mentally more.” – Larissa Scanlon
And my resolution? I’m choosing to no longer support beauty brands that test on animals. Going 100% crulty-free in my makeup purchases! (I’ve actually started already, but that’ll be our little secret!)
