New Year's resolutions are great, don't get me wrong. I fully support those who can follow a New Years resolution, but for me, they just don't work. Ever. Year after year I have attempted to eat healthily, work out five days a week, and become a more positive person. Here's how it usually goes: the first couple days of the new year are great. I feel healthy, happy, and proud of myself, and then… it becomes a chore. Instead of looking forward to doing things that make me feel good and healthy, it feels like something I have to do. It may seem like I have no willpower, but I'm not the only one who has trouble with New Years Resolutions. There tends to be a trend where people work really hard at their resolution for about a month or so, and then burn out and lose their drive. There's too much pressure around a New Years resolution. There shouldn't just be one time of year where everyone wants to improve themselves. There needs to be less pressure around the goal in order to attain it, or at least make the goal easier to follow. So this year, instead of having a New Year's Resolution that feels unattainable I have decided to create one that is pretty easy to attempt: drink less soda, work out more, and try and look at the bright side of life. This goal doesn't have a due date, it doesn't force me to change my lifestyle completely, and it doesn't feel like a chore. I am excited to see what the New Year brings, and hopefully this year I can finally follow a resolution.

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.
I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.
But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
Don't knock it until you try it!
Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.
You'll have your whole family drooling when you bring these goodies over too.
All vegetarians and vegans can relate when I say this: summer barbecues aren't fun when there's nothing you can eat.
11 Kourtney Kardashian Moments We'll Keep Up With Even Though She's Saying 'ABCDEFG Goodbye' To The Show
Kourt is DEF not the least exciting to look at.
Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.
Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.
The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.
Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
Raise a glass to the zodiac.
Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.
For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.
Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.
There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
