New Year’s Resolutions Everyone Should Have


Mohss Elaine, Staff Writer

Have you been keeping up with your resolutions? 2018 is starting off with a bang, and for many, resolutions are the kickoff to a great year. Eating healthy, going to a gym, spending time with friends and family, are all common goals. With so many positive things to do, how can you decide which ones to apply to 2018? A resolution should speak to the heart, and be something that you can do at your own steady pace.Being realistic with resolutions makes them easier to achieve and uphold. With an abundance of things you could do, it’s easier to start small, make simple steps, and achieve bigger goals later down the road. The goals you make now could largely affect and improve your lifestyle.


  • Deleting social media sites
    • Social media can often take a negative toll on individual self image and can take up large amounts of free time. With cutting back on the constant content, there’s a possibility that one may end up being happier with themselves, as well as having more free time.
  • Spending less money
    • Money can often become an issue in the average home, so to take off some stress, save money by carpooling, bringing lunch from home, and cutting out fast food from a daily diet. Over time, small amounts saved begin to pile up, so it’s best to start with cutting out unnecessary items and see how much you can save!
  • Learn something new
    • Learning is extremely important, and striving for more knowledge should be more common. Learning a new language, a new skill, a new sport, etc. can vastly improve your life and make you feel much happier with your achievements, while being extremely fulfilling and leading to new opportunities.  
  • Read more books
    • What’s not to love about books? They transport you to different worlds and immerse you in amazing stories. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay, and Sourdough by Robin Sloan are just a few examples of interesting books written in 2017 that should be filling your bookshelves this year.  
  • Travel
    • Seeing what the world has to offer is on many people’s’ bucket lists, and for very good reasons. National monuments, new experiences, and getting to immerse yourself in new cultures can be an enlightening experience. You might be surprised at how attainable travel can be, road trips and budget airlines can make even distant lands seem closer if you are smart about it.  
  • Start eating healthier
    • A common resolution is to lose weight and start healthier alternatives. This is a long process that takes time to show actual progress. However, starting these practices by eating healthier is a great start! Cutting back on junk food, eating smaller portions and more nutritious can help start a healthier lifestyle.
  • Go to more school events
    • Coronado is always looking for more support at sport tournaments, clubs, dances, spirit weeks and more! We are only in highschool for so long, why not show your support while you can?

The new year can bring new resolutions into light, but upholding the resolutions matters most. Keep working hard to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourselves, and try your best to keep 2018 going great!
