Annual resolutions are a way to take stock of what’s worthwhile. Archbishop Carroll students have made a list of some resolutions.

“My new year’s resolution is to be kinder and more considerate. And also to keep my word I will think before speaking and remind myself to be better,” stated Mariah Kinder, a senior.

Using specific, measurable goals and science-backed resolutions can boost a person’s chances of transforming his or her life, according to Yahoo News.

“My new year’s resolution is to be more grateful for the things I’m blessed with,” said Dean Coleman-Newsome, a senior. “Another one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more conscientious of how I treat people to ensure I reach my goals for the new year. I will take it day by day and constantly remind myself when I’m slipping.”

One study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that those who set New Year’s resolutions are 10 times more likely to change their behavior than those who don’t, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s employee resources web page. 

“I hope my resolutions change me personally,” said Makayla Mallery, a senior. “I am just focused on being a better person in 2023. I believe 2023 will be a great year and a year full of changes. Transitioning from college to high school is something big in the new year I look forward to and I am just excited to see what comes.”
