Google defines the word ‘resolution’ as “the act or process of resolving, a: the act of analyzing a complex notion into simpler ones, b: the act of answering; solving.” New Year’s resolutions have existed since the early 19th century and might be able to go all the way back to the 17th century! Did you know that the most popular New Year’s resolutions are about self improvement?

I asked Mr. Evans, Mrs. Bell, and Mrs. Daniel a few questions, and here are their answers:

Q- What are some of your New Year’s resolutions?

Mr Evans: To play more tennis, win the girls tennis regional, and to save money to buy a home.

Mrs. Bell: To be more organized and to be better with time management to allow time for myself.

Q- How did you spend your New Year?

Mr. Evans: He went to a New Year’s Eve party and had “lots of good food.” He also played a chess game for 2 hours and watched the ball drop. 

Mrs. Bell: Just watched movies with her husband and her son at home. 

Q- Is there anything else you would like to add about the New Year?

Mr. Evans: In the new year, he’s trying to be nicer to himself and others.

Mrs. Bell: She’s just praying that this year is better than the last two.

In conclusion, the new year has been very exciting for some. The past few years have been rough for many, so 2022 is bringing new light and new starts for people. New year’s resolutions help get the year started. New year’s resolutions are all about making positive changes in your life. Creating goals for the new year is a great way to start. According to people sometimes create ambitious health goals without coming up with a plan to achieve these goals. With this being said, I hope you will achieve your goals and resolutions for this year. I would love to hear about your New Year’s Resolutions! Email me at [email protected].
