New year resolutions is a tradition in the western hemisphere where a person makes a promise to themselves for self-improvement or doing something really nice.

“My New Year’s resolution is to become a more more better positive person and improve myself both mentally and physically,” said senior Alexis Tolentino.

Americans began participating in this tradition after the Great Depression in order to do better each year.

“My New Year’s resolution is to start eating less junk food,” said sophomore Ariana Smith.

At the start of the 21st century, 40% of Americans began participating in the tradition.

“ My New Year’s resolution is to travel more,” said senior Genesis Vasquez.

The origins of this tradition goes back to Babylonian times when the people made promises to their gods to return borrowed objects and to pay their debts.

“My New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and make some money so I can move out of this house,” said senior Adrian Scott.

Most people fail to achieve their resolution because 35% have goals that are not realistic, 33% don’t keep track of their progress, and 23% forget about their resolutions.

“My New Year’s resolution is to eat more healthier by eating less junk food and more vegetables, and to travel more,” said senior Kim Wei.

A lot of common goals people choose for their resolutions is losing weight, traveling more, reconnecting with old friends, making new friends, settle down, and there is way more.

“My New Year’s resolution is to get myself a car,” said senior Cantrell Wolf.
