Best New Year Resolutions for 2014

Updated on December 20, 2013

Here's the list-

Get Healthy
Getting healthy doesn't just mean losing weight. It can also mean playing more sports, making healthier eating choices or just resolving to get off the couch a little more often. Make one small change at a time - like riding your bike to school instead of taking the bus, or ordering a salad instead of a burger - and you'll have an easier time keeping this resolution.
Get Happier
This is a little more of an abstract resolution that can mean different things to different people. See if you can find ways to boost your self-esteem, or just spend more time doing things that you love instead of things that make you feel bad about yourself.
Be a better person
Being a good person - by donating your time or old stuff to those in need, or just by throwing some random acts of kindness into your daily routine - feels so good that it can be addictive.
Find Love
You can be perfectly happy by being single, but be honest: wouldn't it feel great to find a great boyfriend or girlfriend? There's no magic spell that'll bring love into your life. It is you who has to find his/her.
Show love to family
Like it or not, your family is made up of the most important people in your life. This year, take a couple of deep breaths and resolve to be a little nicer to them.
Be a better Friend
The more love you give to your friends, the more love they'll give back to you. So, basically, if you stick to this New Year's resolution you've got nothing to lose. Find a couple of ways to help a friend out this month. Not only will you be making someone feel good, you'll also be building up some karma for when you need help.
Get better in school
You don't need to suddenly turn yourself into a straight-A student - but if you bump up your school performance by just a little bit this year, you'll feel better about yourself, you'll make your parents proud, and you'll be setting yourself up for a brighter future. So it's a good idea all around.
Learn something new
There's nothing more thrilling than the feeling of finally "getting something"...and your school curriculum often leaves something to be desired. How about putting some of that holiday money towards learning a new hobby? It'll be way more fun than algebra, and you might just learn a skill that you'll love for the rest of your life.

      To wear something that is catchy & cool is always one of the common thoughts that every teen gets. But, it can't be a resolution. Resolution should be something productive which we have never done before. Thx for your feedback though.

      I think for teens, resolutions would involve more "teen" things, like "fix my hair better," or "wear jeans that make my butt look nice." I know these sound kind of funny, but I know that when I was a teen, my concerns involved who my friends were and what I was wearing.....quite shallow, but I know that so many teens are like this. Thanks for sharing this though! Many of the resolutions are useful! I like the "learn something new" one. I think all teens could benefit from this!

      This is really well written in simple form. It gives the reader some easy resolutions for improvement without it being so cumbersome that the resolutions end up as pipe dreams.

      If I may offer a suggestion: you should either find two more resolutions to add to the list, or change the summary from a top ten list.

      Voted up and useful!
