The most popular thing people do for the New Year is make up a New Year’s resolution. Forty-five percent of Americans make one, and 38 percent of Americans do not make New Years resolutions.

For those who do not know what a New Year’s resolution is, it is when you make a promise to stop doing something, to do it less, or just to change something in your life.

Freshman Uriel Sanchez said, “My New Years resolution is to eat healthier.”

New Year’s resolutions can range from a smoking addiction, to just spending more time with your family. The most popular resolution I hear coming from people is, “I am going to change, be more respectful and kinder too people.”

Ziyed Muniz said, “My New Years resolution is to start going to the gym more.”

I, for one, don’t really make myself a New Year’s resolution, but this year I decided to make one, and I will attempt to go all the way with it. My New Year’s resolution is to be dedicated to my YouTube channel and to get 2-3 videos up on a weekly basis. I want to be more active with my viewers and subscribers. Also, I will attempt too spend more time with my family.

Some people do not go all the way with their resolutions. This usually shows poor dedication, or just not being able to do it, but you can always try next year.

Approximately 25 percent of Americans in 2013 were said to keep to their New Year’s resolutions. If you want to go all the way with your resolution, just find another activity to do. If your resolution is to stop smoking, do something else to replace that. Eventually you will quit.

There are a lot of popular New Year’s resolutions that a lot of people do, such as lose weight, eat healthier, stop smoking, save money, and even get a better job. Those are just a few of the many popular New Year’s resolutions.

  1. I have a YouTube channel as well! I love watching videos and would love making them too. I think it's awesome that you make them. I like the idea of new years resolutions because it shows that people want to better themselves and it makes me sad when they don't fulfill them.

    I'm not a fan of New Years Resolutions, but I think they're probably useful for some people who need a reason to get fit, quit a bad habit, or make a life change.
