CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- It's almost the end of the year when we'll swarm the TV, watch the ball drop in New York City and wonder what the new year will bring us. After that, it's time to break out the notepads and pencils to make our New Year's resolutions.
New Year's is all about changing yourself, and resolutions are easy to make. Just sit down and think about the things you want to improve about yourself or your life. Then, add those to your list to make 2014 your best year yet!
Here are some suggestions to jump-start your list:
Work towards your dreams
High school is a perfect time to work towards your goals, and if you don't have any at the moment, New Year's is the perfect time to make some. Write out all the things you'd like to do, and then try and work on those throughout the year. For instance, if you want to learn to dance, look into lessons with local dance companies.
Change your eating habits
Teens typically are not healthy eaters. If you have poor eating habits, make small changes to start. Swap out those chips after school with some carrots or celery once a week, or look for scrumptious healthy alternatives to your normal snacks. If you want something salty and crunchy, try whole wheat goldfish instead of chips; they're just as tasty but much healthier.
