2024 creates lifestyle changes for people; New resolutions made, shared

     While some people do not believe in resolutions, many  students at North Harford partake in this tradition. There are many different kinds of new habits people try to take on.

     Junior Breezy Seiser has made one resolution for this year. She says, “I want to read more books this year, because I truly do love reading, but I feel like I don’t make enough time for it. I have extra time in my life, but I chose to fill that with other activities that don’t better me as a person.”

     The student explains that as she has gotten older, she “gained more resolutions and the understanding of what it means.” She says, “I have learned more about my life as it goes on. There are so many new things I discover about myself, which shape my resolutions throughout the years.” 

      Seiser shares, “I usually stick to the same resolutions all year because I tend to forget about them and not fulfill them.” She usually has “multiple to choose from,” but in the end chooses one to dedicate her time to.

     Resolutions are important to Seiser because “it is good to better yourself for other people, not only you as a person.” She feels that it is good for other people’s mental and physical health “to get some motivation for something new.” 

     Seiser says, “It is difficult sometimes to maintain them because disciplining yourself is hard when you have a lot going on in your life already. It is a different kind of skill that is needed in life, but also very hard to learn.”

     Junior Alyssa Wise explains her new year’s resolution is to “expect less from other people.” She is dedicated to sticking to this new motto “all year.”

     Wise says, “the reason I think people should make these is because it makes you grow as a person in more ways than you would think. They give people hope; a lot of it.” 

     This student shares, “it can get difficult at times to maintain your goals, but if you push through you can achieve your new years goals.” If people have enough dedication and commitment, “it is worth it in the end.”
