Famous New Years Resolutions

The most famous New Year's resolutions become famous for two reasons: These resolutions are made every year by many people throughout the world, or a famous person made a particular resolution and it became famous. While it's always best to choose a resolution based on a thoughtful analysis of your own life, looking over some of the more famous resolutions may help you find inspiration.

Celebrity Resolutions
According to Allieiswired.com, some past New Year's resolutions by famous people include the following:

  • "It's always the same: to work out more and eat healthier. I'm trying to go orangic, eat more raw." ˜Fergie
  • "My resolution is to be as nice as possible to the press." ˜Kanye West
  • "To eat more carbs!" ˜Kathy Griffin
  • "Probably just to continue last year, which was to get in shape and stop eating sweets. I think I'm going to continue that because I broke it a little bit." ˜Kim Kardashian

Some famous people have the same New Year's resolutions as the rest of the world-and like the rest of the world, they break those resolutions. Kanye West should have added to be nice to people in general. Kim Kardashian admits to breaking her New Year's resolution, so what does she do? She makes the same resolution this year.

Popular Resolutions
The list of the most popular New Year's resolutions doesn't change much. Some perennial favorites include the following:

  • Losing weight
  • Quitting smoking
  • Exercising more
  • Spending more time with family
  • Eating better
  • Saving money

One of the newer and popular resolutions is to reduce energy use and to take better care of the Earth. Spending less time on the Web and spending less time texting are also gaining in popularity.

Why Make Resolutions?
Even though our habits and challenges continue from one year into the next, people see the start of a new year as a blank slate. It's a good time to take stock of your life and focus on the things you could do differently. The nostalgia that swirls around the holiday season, with all of its tradition, makes the end of the year a good time to think about what matters most in your life.

It's only worthwhile to make a resolution if you think you can keep it. While it's worthwhile to have goals, it's better to set goals that you can attain; the feeling of accomplishment you get from meeting them will encourage you to work harder to meet tougher goals. As you're thinking about resolutions, think about small things you can do each day, rather than big lifestyle changes that may be too difficult to make.

Remember, too, that resolutions don't have to be about health, relationships or finances. There's plenty of fun resolutions to make, such as learning a new language, learning to cook or planning to travel to a place you've always wanted to visit.
