What’s your New Year’s Resolutions this year?

Every year most of us always have our own New Year’s resolutions, although a majority of us don’t end up finishing them we still set them every year. After talking to some peers here at Broward College I was able to ask them what their New Year’s resolutions are and what they are going to do to make sure they accomplish those goals. 

After asking, Sarah Hansen, a student at Broward College, what her New Year’s resolution was she told me the following, “ This year I really want to start going to the gym and not just getting fit, but starting to eat healthier as well.”

This is one of the most common New Year’s Resolutions, and also one of the hardest to stick to because of the dedication it takes to really work out consistently. I asked Sarah what she was going to do to make sure she stays on track with this goal for herself this upcoming year and she said, “ I’ve tried to start working out in the past but I never stick to it because I get so busy with school, but this year I’m going to start working out with my friend to keep me accountable to make sure that we are both on track and setting a schedule so that I can work it around my classes and hers as well.” 

Another New Year’s resolution from Camilla Guzman was, “To stay consistent and focus on my mental health.” 

In a year with so much hectic noise around us it is so important to keep our mental health in check. 

I asked her how she was going to make sure she would accomplish this goal and she said, “I want to start going to counseling and making sure that I am keeping calm in this period of a lot of uncertainty.” 

“I want to get all of my classes done on time, and manage my time better with virtual learning,” Chase Cone told me that was his goal this New Year. 

For many of us getting our classes scheduled can be very stressful especially when we are stressing out about graduating on time, but the best thing we can do is meet with an advisor and coordinate our classes to make sure we are taking the right ones and not taking more than we have to. 

I asked Cone what he was going to do to make sure he managed his time better with virtual learning and he said, “ I want to organize a schedule to do my assignments because it’s so easy to get side tracked when you aren’t actually going to school, so I want to make sure I get everything done on time and not wait till the last minute.”

These are some of the resolutions we can have for ourselves too but most importantly, it’s making sure we follow through with them to be able to look back at the end of the year and see how far we have come.
