What’s new at New Year
25 Dec 2006
The start of our calendar year is January 1st. It is traditional for people to think about making a new start with something in their lives at this time.
We call this making a New Year Resolution.
Resolving to make changes is not always easy. Well, making the resolution is easy, but actually carrying it out may be a bit challenging.
These are some of the things people decide to do at the start of the New Year.
- Changing a habit – this could mean getting yourself organised so that you are up to date with everything at school.
- Giving up something – this could mean spending less time on computer games, cutting out junk food, etc.
- Learning something new – this could mean anything from getting into sport to starting to learn a musical instrument.
- Goal setting – this could mean setting some long-term goals, then working out some short-term goals that help you reach them.
Our topics on Goal-setting and Resilience may help you.
