31 New Years Resolutions You Should Try

new years

  1. Be less judgmental. Why should you care if your roommate makes the terrible mistake of partying until 3 A.M. when they have a test the next morning? It does not affect you.
  2. Stop procrastinating. The “I work well under pressure” excuse is soo 2014. Have you even tried getting ahead in your work? You may surprise yourself with the success you’ll experience when you do not wait until the last minute to complete things. Like when there’s and English essay due….
  3. Go to bed at a regular time. This may sound childish, but your body will love you. Just remember, the bags under your eyes from that all-nighter you pulled (probably due to procrastinating) are not sexy.
  4. Stop dwelling on the past. You. Cannot. Change. It. You’re not in the eighties, you are not a star in Back to the Future, and I doubt you have access to Dr. Emmett Brown’s time machine. Anyways, Marty almost ruined his whole life by meddling with the past.
  5. Let “him” or “her” go. It may be hard, but the relief you’ll feel is so worth it.
  6. Make the first move! Ask and you shall receive.
  7. Read a really good book. There are so many choices, like To Kill a Mockingbird, The Hunger Games, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Ender’s Game, Harry Potter and those are only a few.
  8. Be grateful for what you have because there are many who are not as lucky as you.
  9. Volunteer. Giving to those who have less leaves you with a great feeling.
  10. Be healthier. This does not necessarily mean you have to go to the gym; there are other options available that will keep you healthy, like when you…
  11. Give up fast food. It’s greasy, it’s gross, and it’s just unnatural.
  12. Don’t drink soda.
  13. Stop stressing.
  14. Do meditate. A healthy mind equals a healthy body.
  15. Smile more.
  16. Compliment a stranger. It may make their day.
  17. Work on that road range. Riding the person’s ass who cut you off does nothing except cause a break check and may lead to a car accident.
  18. Go on a ski trip. Don’t know how to ski? Take a lesson. Live someplace that doesn’t have the privilege of receiving blizzards? Time to take a road trip!
  19. Travel more often because you’re only young once. See the world.
  20. Spend time with your family. “Family Game Night” may not sound like a lot of fun right now, but you’ll be happy for the memories when you’re older.
  21. Tell your mother and father you love and appreciate them. They would do anything for you and it’s important to let them know this means the world to you.
  22. Cry. It’s healthy and always being strong is so tiring
  23. Stop making excuses. If you screwed up, apologize.
  24. Forgive yourself and those around you for past mistakes. Humans are not perfect and grudges only cause wrinkles.
  25. Get rid of your fake friends. Yes, you should forgive them for their past wrongs, but this does not mean you should continue to spend time with them.
  26. Don’t let others’ opinions affect the view you have on yourself. Who cares if the girl sitting across from the bar doesn’t like your outfit, when will you ever see her again?
  27. Love yourself and don’t try to change who you are. You are you and you must be happy with that.
  28. Be kind. The world could use a little more of this.
  29. Take chances. It’ll be worth it.
  30. Take pictures, you’ll want to remember every moment and memory later in life.
  31. Embrace the New Year and take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. This is your year!

What are your resolutions for 2015?
