New Year resolutions written on erase chalkboard

New Year’s resolutions are usually the punchline of jokes around Christmas, and with the good or bad they pose, there are many opinions surrounding them. To find out more about how teens look at New Year’s resolutions, I conducted a poll.

With the teens I polled, half said they make resolutions with the other half saying they don’t. They also told me that they make anywhere from 1 to 10 resolutions. Some people I polled said that they view them as pointless — but harmless — with others saying they are good motivators.

Overall, what I found was that most believed you should try to set little goals all year round instead of all at once. This way, you might have a chance of keeping them and reaching your goal.
