As 2016 began, thoughts were buzzing of what New Year’s resolutions people wanted to achieve. Many are setting goals to become happier and healthier. GoBankingRates surveyed the most popular New Year’s resolutions for 2016, and the surveys showed that most respondents plan to have fun and enjoy life to the fullest in 2016. Students at Findlay High School have New Year’s resolutions to get physically fit, to save more money, to be more positive, and many more.
Junior Chris Ricker plans on sticking with his goals by working out during and even outside of the sports he plays.
“My New Year’s resolution is to get in shape as much as I can. I want to be able to lift more, lose more weight, and increase my stamina,” Ricker said.
Learning to accept yourself is a great first step to ruling 2016 and making it your year.
“My New Year’s resolution is to accept myself more because I can’t change my flaws, so why not learn to love them?” Sophomore Julia Weigman said.
Some students are trying to become a part of something bigger this year.
“My New Year’s resolution is to become a part of a different social group to meet new people and make new friends. I would also like to get rid of all the negativity in my life and replace it all with positive things,” Junior Alex Risner said.
Not all students rang in the new year with resolutions for themselves.
“My New Year’s resolution is to not have a New Year’s resolution,” senior Kiyomi Tachibana said.
This is another great goal to have because although many of us often forget it, it is important to remember that many things are not permanent.Although it may be difficult to keep up the enthusiasm to achieve your goals, it is not impossible. Select a resolution for yourself for the new year and stick with it!
