Top 10 New Year's Resolutions for 2019

Everyone wants to better themselves and improve year to year. In fact, New Year's resolutions have become a yearly, time-honored tradition to help us work toward self improvement. Many people make the same resolutions year by year and almost everyone fails to keep them. In fact, most people give up after only a few weeks.

Here are a few recommendations in case you can't think of an area you'd like to improve upon. Remember, anyone can aspire to do and be anything they want. Stick to your guns and find a buddy to help you stay on the path.

The Top Ten

1 Get in better shape

I'm definitely doing that. Currently, I am doing 20 minutes of yoga every day. It DEFINITELY helps me with gym class. I recommend it for whoever is struggling in gym class like I was.

I was in better shape last year, when I broke the school record for fitnessgram sit-ups and almost did for pushups. Now I lost most of my abilities strength and I can only run a 6:21 mile

I've been going up and down, and have a weakness for sweets and snacks, so I need to do this. Lost some weight last summer but regained some again, so I need to get going. - SailorSedna

Whether that's losing weight, building muscle, decreasing your BMI, or just dropping a clothing size, health is always a good thing.

2 Decrease screen time

10 hours and 39 minutes per day... That's the amount of time the average American spends on their screens. Maybe try limiting your screen time and letting your eyes look at something real.

I typically limit myself to under two hours per day if I can, and during the summer when I can be outside more it's under 1 hour

My average time on laptop depends. In one house, it's about 4-8 hours. In the other house? Boy, I even go past midnight on occasion

Well, I guess this is good, but the internet is the place where I can feel not dead inside.

3 Spend more time with family

Talk to your grandparents, write down their stories, or just play games with your siblings or parents.

I hate spending time with my family. They're so annoying

It was ineveitable for me after certain events that occurred earlier in the year.

Enjoy every minute with them!

4 Find a relationship

Eh I was in one last fall and it was exciting for the first two weeks because I had all these expectations because I had never been in one before. But my girlfriend ignored me at school and kinda treated me like crap so I’m not really sure if I want to try that again

This is something I'm trying to do right now, though I don't know if I'll succeed or not, and if I fail, I don't know if I'll have a second chance or not. - SailorSedna

In what context? Friend? Romance? Family? This entry is confusing.

This is exactly the opposite of a resolution for me.

5 Quit masturbating

Yo yo yo this should be number one

Lets get this to number one lads!

Yeah that's not happening.

I would like to but no

6 Take a social media break

I am sorry, but no, social media makes me not feel awkward when speaking to people, I hate those studies that say this benefits to both personal relationship and self-esteem, because that's dumb. Memes is all I need

Study after study have shown the benefits to both personal relationships and self-esteem when you take some time away from social media platforms.

I spend more time talking to people in school than online mostly, I just play video games and browse online for most of the time

7 Read a book a week

I read books every school day except maybe at the weekends. Instead, I'm just connecting dot to dot of famous faces of famous people, it's rather a fun brain habit of mine since I was in 6th grade. Then I stopped doing at the end of 6th grade because of my interests rest at science. Since a week ago, I decided to give it a try.

Might not be the resolution for everyone else here, but I've barely read anything last year. It's time I fix that.

I'm working on Wings of Fire 12, and then I'll work on The Shining once my brother finishes.

This is the best because it lasts as long as losing weight for most people.

8 Make a new friend

I only made new friends on here. I wish it was that easy in real life too.

Well, I guess this is hard for me, but I'll try

Everyone can use a new friend.

I have almost no skills here.

9 Drink more water

The average person is chronically dehydrated. Start drinking water in small doses and your body and health will improve.

I'll definitely do this!

I have to drink a lot for sports, even though I'm not technically playing any until January, when soccer starts

10 Make a career change

Don't waste your life doing something you hate. Start making right choices.

I'll be a logistics employee.

The Contenders

11 Learn a new language

There are apps that can teach you a new language FOR FREE! 5 minutes a day while you're on the toilet and you'll be on your way.

Learning Portuguese at the moment. It's a lot more difficult than other languages I've learned.

I started learning ASL last year, but I kept putting it off, and now I only remember a little bit

Oh yes, I would love to learn a new language

12 Find better ways to handle situations correctly

I need to do this

13 Get rid of house clutter

Try getting rid of one small thing a day, or one big thing a week. We all have too much stuff filling our lives.

This includes distant relatives who are still aimlessly milling around after Christmas.

This is something I need to do, my room is a total mess. - SailorSedna

14 Enjoy social media

That's not a resolution. Social media is bad for you, no matter what people say. The more people use social media, the less people have real relationships.

15 Get into an ivy league college
16 Study hard
17 Go traveling
18 Respect opinions
19 Eat healthier
20 Clean your room

I should do this more often.

21 Stress less

I’ve has that on my bucket list for things to do in 2019, something I really need to improve on

22 Get better grades
23 Write more
24 Buy Bitcoin

Seriously, the technology behind bitcoin is going to reshape our world.

25 Start another hobby

I've recently started renovating beautiful, but run-down large Victorian and Georgian-style doll houses. Painting; decorating and upholstering. It's actually relaxing therapeutic fun, especially whilst listening to music. And it's so worthwhile when the finished results are better than you expected.
