2021 resolutions


Greta Svagr, Writer

The time has come my friends…the year of tyranny has finally come to a glass-shattering end. 2020, aka officially the absolute worst year of all time, is over! Although we all wish that Covid-19, wearing masks, and the global pandemic would come to a stop as well, we all know that is not the case. However, we need not focus on the past and only trudge on into the future. The end of the Covid-19 pandemic is uncertain and most likely not anytime soon, yet there will be a day when we no longer have to suffocate under masks and carry hand sanitizer with us everywhere we go. Until that day comes, we can only stay positive, hopeful, and alive. In order to succeed in this and continue living life, setting goals for the next year is a great idea…2021 New Years resolutions baby!

Of all the years in our lives, this may be the most important one to create New Years resolutions for. After months of darkness, sadness, and uncertainty enveloping the world, we must not lose hope…we must stay strong.

As for the specific resolutions, there are several aspects and key components to include on the list. You want to make sure you are imaginative, healthy, thriving, challenged, excited, motivated, inspired, supported, creative, and above all…happy. Because we can all agree, after 2020, we need some happiness.

Some classic, yet great resolutions could be to hit the gym, workout more, eat healthier and smarter, learn an instrument or language, make new friends, travel, and so on. Yet, with our current situation, some innovative resolutions could be: do everything in your power to prevent the spread of Covid, find ways to escape the madness and be more positive, or do what you can to help others who have been affected by the virus.

Students at Davis High gave us some insight, tips, and ideas for resolutions,

“Try and focus on what makes life worth living, find that source of happiness in your life and use it to motivate yourself, grow, and do NOT give up in 2021.”

“This one is kind of basic, but get moving and workout more. Exercise helped me get through tough times in 2020 and it’s always good to get into shape. 2021 is the year to get ripped guys!”

“Go outside more, be with friends, and try not to let the pandemic get to you. Obviously follow the guidelines and stay home if you’re sick, but for 2021 just make it a goal to LIVE.”

“Make 2021 a PARTAY!!!!!”

All these suggestions are wonderful, so make sure to set some goals for yourself throughout this coming year. Don’t let 2020 drag you to the bottom and leave you there! We’ll all get through this together and one day it’ll be over, but for now reflect on this past year and set some resolutions for yourself!
