A College Girl's Guide To Attainable New Year's Resolutions

New decade, new resolutions, new you!

A College Girl's Guide To Attainable New Year's Resolutions

New Year's resolutions are hard! Every time the clock strikes twelve on New Year’s Eve, you can hear all your friends talking about the great new things they plan to do during the upcoming year.

I'm going skydiving.

Well, I'm going to lose 40 lbs by the end of the year.

I really should write that book I have always wanted to write.

Then the next year flies by, and did your friends actually do anything they said they were going to accomplish? No, they did not! (Well... some of your friends might have completed their goals, but for this article, we are going to assume most did not.) Some reasons that they didn't reach their goals is because they were too time consuming, not attainable, or just unrealistic.

For the start of a new decade, it is important to choose a few small New Year's resolutions that perhaps have a degree of difficulty but are still attainable. The point of resolutions is to make a firm decision to do something. You want to feel the satisfaction of completing your resolution, so be reasonable and choose something you know can be accomplished in a years time. Here are some options for your 2020 New Year's Resolution:

1. Work Out One Day More Than You Usually Do


Make a fitness goal that's attainable to you. An example of this is to try adding an extra day of fitness to your routine.

2. Read One New Book


For book lovers, this is an easy one. But for non-avid readers, this could be a hard accomplishment.

3. Cook Something New


Try a different recipe you had your eyes on!

4. Go On A Weekend Trip


Instead of a trip to the Maldives, pick a reasonable weekend trip somewhere you can drive to or has a short flight. Maybe see a state park or visit a new city!

5. Get A Makeover


New hair and a mani-pedi, and you'll be a new you! A hairstyle is a great new way to express yourself for the next year.

I hope these resolution ideas helped you for the New Year. Happy 2020!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.
