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.

Sometimes you feel annoyed with a sibling and you just don't know the RIGHT way to deal with it. I'm telling you right now that all that tension, the trouble, the annoyance can stop. But it's up to you.  LITTLE SIBS  [s:p/1koi] My BEST trick is to ignore. Act like  you have no problem with them. And move on, they'll EVENTually give up, TRUST ME. I've tried on my littles sisters.  BIG SIBS  [s:p/1jmr-en] They can be a bit... SASSY I am one anyway but you need to NOT mess with t hem. Even if this is coming from one herself, act like you have NO problem and be kind to them, surprise surprise! They might listen.   [s:p/1kka] Ya friend and Advisor

If you've ever thought your style wasn't right or you needd a style change think about how YOU want the new you to be like. It YOU anyway. What do you ENJOY wearing? What do you think will be most trendy? And maybe your parents might be like mine and might not APPROVE of your outfit. Think about you. Don't try to change to someone else but the new you  [s:p/1kk9] Your friend and advisor,

Well I say don't deal with your friend I mean comfort her and all but if she's doing all that I would leave her alone let her parents deal with it you guys are just kids ending your life isn't the solution and you seem like a really caring person but ####### help from the internet isn't to answer Tell her parents or let her see to see an therapist or something But don't let other people drag you down into depression
