Sticking with New Year’s Resolutions

Sticking with New Years Resolutions

Jacob Susong (Junior), Reporter

Many people make New Year’s Resolutions to try and improve something about themselves.  These resolutions can span from losing weight and working out to joining a new sport or club. These resolutions, however, are often forgotten within weeks after the New Year.  People usually start off strong with their resolutions, but can’t sustain them for very long.


“I make a New Year’s Resolution every year.  I can’t ever seem to stick with it for very long though.” Said sophomore Dax Frost.


So, what do students here at LHS do to prevent being undiscipline when it comes to their resolutions?


“Whenever I make a New Year’s Resolution, I write it down on a piece of paper and put it on my refrigerator.” Said junior Grayson Rubi.  “I try to look at it every day to just remind myself to keep going.”


Another way people make their New Year’s Resolutions stick is by making them very specific.  When making goals, the more specific they are, the more likely they are to be permanent.


“I always try to be as specific as possible.  For example, if I were trying to lose weight, I would put the specific weight that I would want to be at in a specific amount of time.  This gives me a better chance to stick with it.” Said junior Dakota Coffman.


Even if you mess up your resolution, this doesn’t mean that you can’t stick with it.  Just do your best to avoid repeating mistakes.  Let’s say, for example, you were trying to work out five times a week, and one week you only make it to the gym four times.  This doesn’t mean that you should just give up and forget the resolution.  You can still stick with it.


“Consistency is the most important thing about sticking with New Year’s Resolutions.” Said senior Andrew Phelps.
