Make resolutions for yourself; resolutions that will better yourself as a person and you can continue to keep for the rest of your life.
Every year we set New Year’s resolutions, such as dieting, exercising more, getting organized, volunteering more, and etc. However, we quickly lose interests in those resolutions and by the next New Year’s we are making them again. Instead of making unrealistic resolutions that you may not keep, make realistic ones. Make resolutions for yourself; resolutions that will better yourself as a person and you can continue to keep for the rest of your life. Here are my top 10 resolutions that every girl should definitely make this New Year.
1. Stop posting negative statuses about yourself on social media.
Posting and sharing negative things about yourself only makes it okay for other people to say negative things about you. Stop focusing on the negatives about yourself and try to only think of the positives. Take those negative thoughts and think of ways you can better yourself as a person, rather than tearing yourself down.
2. Stop posting negative statuses about others on social media.
It doesn’t look good to your friends, your family, and even your future employers. No one cares about how stupid you think your ex is and it just makes you look dumb for calling them out publicly on social media. This also includes subtweeting. Instead of subtweeting about someone, talk to them personally. Being passive aggressive on social media won’t solve your problems.
3. Stop judging others.
We are girls. We naturally do it. But next time you find yourself judging someone based on their appearance, take a step back and think how that person would feel if you said what you were thinking to their face. How would you feel if someone said that about you?
4. Make amends.
Apologize for what you did wrong and forgive those who have wronged you. Starting the year with a clean slate will benefit both you and the other person. Trust me, you will feel a lot better if you stop holding grudges and just let it go.
(Is anyone else now singing Let It Go in their head? lol)
5. Stop beating yourself up for skipping the gym on days you truly don’t have time, but stop skipping the gym on days you had plenty of time.
Mackenzie Newcomb couldn’t have said it better in her article, “25 New Year’s Resolutions Every Person Should Actually Make For 2015.” If you have time, go. If you don’t, don’t worry about it.
6. Stop hating yourself for eating dessert.
Again, Mackenzie Newcomb said it. You can eat whatever you want. Don’t feel bad about it because you deserve that cupcake. And to be honest, if you keep refraining yourself from eating dessert, you are just going to splurge more later.
7. Put your phone away when hanging out with friends and family.
We have grown to become so reliable on our phones and constantly check them. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will be there when you are done. Be with those who are physically there.
8. Stand up for yourself.
Stop letting people push you around and stand up for yourself. Do what you want to do and not what others want you to do.
9. Be confident.
Confidence is the best accessory you can wear. Be confident with who you are and everything you do.
10. Have fun.
Yes, school, work, and sleep are important, but sometimes you need to make time to just have fun. Especially during your college years. You aren’t going to remember that night you got a good 9 hours of sleep…
