This might just be the year for several different Indiana State University students who have made their new year’s resolutions and plan to stick with them all year. On the other hand, some students chose not to make New Year’s resolutions at all. This is because they know their past tendencies to make resolutions and not follow through with them.

For those who chose to make a change within their life for this new and exciting year, some chose to eat healthier, not procrastinate nearly as much, improve time management skills, study more, save money, etc.

“I didn’t think much about a new year’s resolution for 2021 because I always have one in mind, but I always end up sticking with it for maybe a couple of weeks. If I had to choose one, it would be to stop procrastinating because I tend to stress myself out when I wait until the last minute to finish my assignments,” said ISU sophomore Allie Moyer. One of the most common New Year’s resolution trends is to eat healthier and create a healthier lifestyle.

“My new year’s resolution for 2021 is to eat more nutritious foods and to be more active overall. Another one of the big changes I want to make for 2021 is to stop eating out as much. Eating out adds up too so much extra money spent, and it would be nice to have that money in my savings. I have already not eaten out for the past week, so that is a nice start,” said ISU junior Peyton Hochhalter.

Time management is an issue that many college students struggle with. Students are juggling classes, jobs, and extracurriculars every day. It is vital to student success that our time management skills are pristine.

“I’m a nursing major and I hold an executive position within my sorority. I also believe it’s important to maintain a nice social life and to keep up with physical health. It’s not easy to juggle all of these activities, but my resolution is to use my time more wisely this year,” said ISU sophomore Jenna Griffith.

New year’s resolutions can be a great idea if one chooses to stick with them and be consistent throughout the year.
