Dear Amy: I would like to make a New Year’s resolution for the coming year. How do I choose one? — Frank S., Tucson, Arizona
Dear Frank: A resolution is a commitment to try to make an improvement in some area of your life. It is never too late to try something new. For instance, you may want to raise your grades and form better study habits. One way to accomplish this is to take advantage of after-school tutoring, study with a friend who is good in the subjects you struggle in, or try to eliminate distractions and set aside a time to study each day.
Another resolution might be to eat healthier and be more active. You don’t have to play organized sports to be active. You can take walks, ride bikes or participate in many winter activities you enjoy with your family or a friend. If swimming is something you like to do, most communities have a community pool you can join so you can swim throughout the year.
If you are interested in developing better eating habits, you can research healthy recipes that you can make at home. Resources are unlimited!
