Fun and Healthy New Year's Resolutions

Jan 07, 2014

New Year's resolutions are easily made - and easily broken, but if your goals are geared towards having fun, they won't be so hard to keep. Check out these resolutions for a healthier and happier you!

Make Exercise Fun

Getting in shape may be one of the oldest resolutions around, but they're also one of the hardest to keep cuz people vow to work out every day for three hours to lose the holiday weight they've gained. Instead of making an unrealistic goal, come up with a fun fitness plan that gets you off your butt and moving around. If you're a TV addict, do jumping jacks during the commercials. If you're a music buff, turn on your iPod and dance around til you work up a sweat. Exercising won't be a chore if you make it fun!

Start Out Smart

We know you've heard this before, but we'll say it again anyway - breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Grabbing something to eat in the morning helps you start your day off right cuz your brain and body get fueled with energy. So take the time to eat breakfast (even if it means missing the school bus) cuz you'll concentrate better in class and be more focused for all those pop quizzes.

Get More ZZZs

Both girls AND guys need beauty sleep to prevent dark circles, bags, blood-shot eyes and breakouts. Plus, you won't doze off in class and get sentenced to detention! It's important to get at least eight hours of sleep every night, so make it a priority to hit the sack early this year instead of staying up late to watch those late-night talk shows.

Save for a Rainy Day

Whether it's five cents or five dollars, put some money in your piggy bank every time you get paid from your after-school job or receive your allowance. Saving up can score you those cool sneakers or help you out of a jam without having to beg your parents for cash or search the sofa for lost change.

My mom can be that way too. There's nothing like that, you're exagerating, you dont even know what you're talking about. When all tthaat time I was going through it. She didn't have a clue honestly.

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
