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.

I have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
