New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.

Here are the ten most common New Year’s Resolutions in the United States. Do you have some similar promises?

1. Start Exercising

2. Quit Smoking

3. Learn Something New

4. Eat Healthier and Diet

5. Get out of Debt and Save Money

6. Spend More time with Family

7. Travel

8. Be Less Stressed

9. Volunteer

10. Drink Less

We asked some teachers, staff members, and afternoon students about their own New Year’s Resolutions. Here’s what they said:

In 2012 I will:

Tina: stay healthy and always have a positive attitude

Emily: be a good new mom

Bhumika: travel more, learn to cook new things, & go to karaoke more often

Monica: travel more, lead a healthier lifestyle, & learn a new language

John: go to bed early, improve my English, & make more money

Sylvia: wake up early every day & be a better cook

Bruno: try to be more organized & make plans for the future

Joel: improve my English

Yoshi: get buff Betsy: do more yoga

Davi: be more friendly and open-minded

What is yours?
