I’m not giving myself a New Year’s resolution because I don’t think that’s a way to make me do something. I’m not saying I don’t want to improve on some things, such as starting to read books (my small goal is to read about 10 books by the end of the year), listening to my parents much more than last year, devoting so much time to school that I can only have units to report card. I would like to learn how to make cakes, desserts, maybe bake breads and baguettes. Helping people when they need help with some work, but also when I just smile at them. I don’t like to call these things New Year’s resolutions, because they are things I can always do. That’s all from me. Goodbye !

For this year i have no resolutions but my goal is when i will less play games
I would like to be more helpful at Home for example washing dishes or take out the trash than i also want every year be better and better in englishAdela Čarnogurská
In this new year, I would like to make 15 push ups per month. I think this will be a big challenge and I can overcome myself. I choose this resolution because I want to live healthier and happier life.
This year I would like to get better at speaking German because I want to attend bilingual (Slovak-German) grammar school and also I want to make my lifestyle a bit more healthy than it was last year.
This year I am going to stop asking what if, I´m only going to say oops. I´ll set goals that scare me and excite me at the same time. In 2021 I would like to learn how to play guitar and many other things.
This year, I am going to read more books, because I started to enjoy that and reading improve my memory and vocabulary.
I have decided that I want to be more active that means I will start to work out more so I can keep shape during these hard times.
My goal for this year is to reduce time infront of computer so I can study more and think about my plans in future.
I have an intention to be more sport person and not to be couch potato. I would to be more productive in sport and have a better figure. I think, that almost everybody wants that. Also I want to be more productive in helping with housework, like when my mother tell me to clean up something, I will do that at that moment and I won’t wait for ,,the right moment“.
For this year I don’t have some special resolution. Only the common one, like for example, eat better food, or going more to the gym. But I gave myself a challenge, that I can’t use my social media for the entire week. I hope that I can make it because it’s a big problem for the most of jung people. With this challenge I want to reach the goal that I will spend my time more usefully. For example read more newspaper , or better prepare for test and also in school, because when we’re learning at home, oftentimes I’m not fully concerned on the lessons. I think that we are finally going back to the schools, so I’m trying to be prepared, when we will be back in the schools. And the last one resolution but the most important is to pass this school year and successfully go through another.
I want to better manage my time.
In the New Year I will stop cheating on exams. I want spend time more with my friends and family and my dream is to travel to Switzerland.
My new year´s goal is to start running, because my running condition is a bit poor but it´s not the worst. My second resolution is to eat more healty food. And my third and the biggest priority is to play less video games.
I Will try to reduce junk food. Because last year a ate a lots of junk food and now I to change it. I Would also like to start exercising more. Because I want to stay fit. I Will try to read five books by the end of the year.
In the new year I am planning to get rid off my old unhealthy habits. There are many of them. But my main goal is to start eating more healthy. My second goal is to be nicer to people and improve my relationships. Next goal of mine is to educate myself more in English and be able to express what I want to say without long thinking. So these are my main goals:)
In this year I would love to travel more if it will be possible because of situation in world.
In 2021 I would like to be more open in that sense to understand the opinions I don´t like, because I´m very stubborn person an in some ways I just see only my point of view.
Also my goal is to exercise more, because I don´t do much sports for 3 years and I used to train two – phase before that. And I eat a lot, so it would be appropriate. (Thanks God for my metabolism)
My biggest dream for this year is to love myself more. I mean my natural self. Before quarantine, I tought I´m in the end of this journey, but during this times I realized I´m on the halfway. I think we´re all beautiful the way we trully are and I really love to tell people they are beautiful, because I mean it and than they had better day maybe. For now, I think of myself that I´m beautiful and I´m learning to make my imperfections the best part of me .
I’ll try to work harder this year and by that I mean on my self. Now it sounds selfish but I kinda want to loose some weight, take better care of my hair, nails and practically my whole body. Then maybe I should focus on my personality and at least tried not to be that mean or annoying towards my brother. Also I would love to try and help my parents more often with houseworks and similar stuff like that.
New Year = New me ! That is a phrase which is used by a lot of people. But that is not the way I see it. It´s not that easy just change everything what is not good for me or just to add some new habits. So I don´t have a big resolutions. I would like to improve just small things everyday. I mean, it´s not hard to smile more – that´s my first small goal. Maybe, for some people it´s hard, but you can still try to find some reasons to smile. ) Then I would like to don´t give up so fast. My next small goal is reading books on daily basis. I also want to be more focused on online classes and give a little bit more attention to school. I hope to start running and exercising freqently. And I want to eat healthier – I would be really happy when it works out for me. I have an intention to reduce time on social media – they are really time consuming. But, on the other hand, I would like to text more with my friends. Hanging with them would be really better, but since corona virus have started spreading it´s really hard. I hope that it would be over soon. So, that´s it. These are my small goals which I want to follow in my life in 2021. I´m not going to write nothing more because I think that should be enough. But I wish you the best in 2021. Have a good time. Bye.
As at the beginning of previous years, also before 2021 even started, I have set myself several New Year’s resolutions. Over the past few years, I’ve learned that I shouldn’t resolve too much from myself. For 2020 I set my mind on too many goals, of course it’s good to have things to motivate yourself. The thing is that at the end of the year we’re disappointed in what we weren’t able to achieve. Even though it has been only 19 days, I have already failed to accomplish what I’ve resolved. One of my main goals was to do yoga on a regular basis (every single day). The first week was ok but as soon as the school started I gave up thinking I won’t be able to continue. At the moment I started once again. Besides that, I would like to focus a bit more on my family, just a few friends (who I know are making me happy and are not toxic) and myself, also love myself. I have noticed how I sometimes care more about other people and THINGS (such as school etc.) than about myself. My next desire is to be less worried and to chill! Hopefully this one won’t be that hard. Last but not least, I am dreaming about evolving my style and drawing skills as well and most importantly to stick to my resolutions through the whole year.
Usually I don’t make New Year’s resolutions but this year I have one and I also have some hopes. Same as probably everyone, my biggest hope in 2021 is that Corona virus won’t be that big threat as it’s now. I don’t want to miss my family or friends as I did in 2020. In 2021 I would love to see them whenever I want without any difficulties. My goal for this year is to start learning French. I’m learning english and german now but I’m not really good at german so I would be glad to know other foreign language. I know it’s a hard language but I love the way it sounds. Also I would love to visit France one day. Hope I will make this resolution happen and this year will be better. It has to be!
If it is possible I would like to travel a lot, I would like to learn new language and have better marks at school.
I do not believe in New Year´s resolutions. I don´t even remember having any in the previous years and I think that most people will break their resolutions after one month. Personally, when I want to start or stop doing something, I just do it without waiting for New Year.
I personally don’t have any New Year’s resolutions, because I find them useless. If you as a person want to move further, and I mean both physically and mentally, you should start right away with whatever you want to do, whether it’s getting fit or learning a new language. Many people will fail with their New Year’s resolutions, because they want to do them quickly, and that’s where they are wrong. You need to work with motivation, but most importantly with patience to achieve whatever you want. You don´t have to wait till the next your to do something, because it is you who is controlling yourself, not the time, weather or anybody.
I do not have any new year’s resolution because back in the day when I had new year’s resolution I have never fulfilled it and then I was just sad and I told myself that I won’t achieve anything in my future. So about 2 years ago I decided to stop this so I won’t descent into madness and protect my own mental health.
For this year, 2021, I decided not to set any goals or resolutions. If set a resolutions I would probably try to accomplish them during January and then, I will simply give up on them. I think New Years resolutions are great but just for some people who, can be motivated to do their best if they actually see what they want to achieve. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.
Stop Procrastinating… The biggest barrier that keeps me from reaching my goals is the desire to relax and do something fun instead of working hard. Once I get used to procrastinating, it’s difficult to snap myself out of it, so I’ll need to put in a lot of work to change this bad habit.
I would like for corona to vanish into the sea of infinite nothingness without any tangible trace, just like a planet or an entire galaxy would disappear in the close proximity of a powerful black hole, and finally leave humanity alone before we all collectively go insane.
My dream is to focus more on my health and workout multiple times per week and also i really want to go on more walks because ive realized that is so important to go out in the situation that we are now in.
I can feel it in my bones that this year will be different than all the others before.
The previous year made me realise that If we want to make some improvement in our lives we need to work together. But on the other hand, it is also very important to stay away from those we love. It was a tough year, isn’t it?
That is why I have decided to make an vision board and put there all positive things and thoughts I would like to go through this year. I have never done this thing before. My main goal is to show myself that I am capable of everything I have in my mind.
This board is giving me hope for better days and better tomorrows.
I strongly believe, that best thing i could do for me was to create this board to have all my wishes in one place. I put it in place, where I could look at it as often as it is even possible.
Are New Year´s resolutions important for our lifes ? Personally , I´m not absolutely convinced about it . However as far as I´m concerned every year I make up some new year´s resolutions . There are years when I give up after 10 days and yet there some of them that last longer. New year´s resolutions give us a new chance to change our lifestyle , our mindset or routine . Last year I promised myself that I ´m going to listen to podcasts on daily bases . And I made it . One during my way to school and another on the way back .At the end of the year I found out that during the year 2020 I had spent 5000 minutes listening to podcasts . Amazing . I definitely consider it as a great time for myself . And I strongly believe that this year I can make it to 10 000 hours . Sometimes I found it quite challenging to for instance start my day with podcast also in the weekend. In spite of that I got used to it . And especially during the quarantine it became a part of my daily routine . Quarantine brings me also to the subject of covid 19 . It has changed our lives over the past year and it´s still changing .We can all agree that it´s hard not to give up. It´s hard to stay in a good mood . And surely it´s really hard to believe that it ends somewhere . To sum up this year i don´t want to go crazy about covid 19 . I want to stay healthy , I want to have patience with vaccine and with government. And I know that some of my dreams can wait another year . However we cannot bring life back. I will do anything to m to stay mentally healthy this year . It´s true also that this is my final year so I would probably like to graduate and get into college .
In conclusion although some of the people say that New Year´s resolutions are unnecessary , in my view they are pushing us to be better versions of ourselves . And that´s never uselessness.
I’m highly determined to fall in love with process of learning about the astonishing history of art as I would love to study such a wonderful subject- photography. In my opinion, it’s always good to have some extra knowledge. That’s why I take seminary classes of history even though it’s not in my intention to study that. Dream of mine which is to get to the university I adore would be the biggest reward after working hard this year. Photography has been my passion since my mum bought our first family camera. I never want to stop finding something interesting and beautiful in everything I do. That would be the biggest accomplishment for me personally and also I would assured I’m living life to the fullest.
