New Year’s Resolutions are something everyone seems to welcome the year with. We asked Sacramento Country Day students what they are resolving to do in 2024.
“Change my mindset, challenge myself to newer things. I plan to work out consistently and accept any requests that may come my way.
For example, I have an upcoming Model United Nations event that normally I would have avoided, but I wanted to start challenging myself, so I accepted the invite.
In the future, I just hope that I can continue keeping this mindset and going into the New Year with soaring ambition.”
“To exercise more. I usually try to stay to my resolutions, though they sometimes can be very difficult to handle due to time and schedule restraints. I like to set up alarms or reminders to do what I need to do on my phone.
I would not set an extreme bar; last year I set my goal to exercise two hours a day, which I missed and gave up after having
too much schoolwork. I am looking forward to this new year’s resolution.”
“To use less plastic. There is so much destruction to our Earth. I feel like we should make these damages less severe. Ways we can implement using less plastic is using paper bags, cutting down on single-use plastic and no plastic straws.”

“Enjoying nature. We miss the joy of hanging outside with friends and feel as though we can have more fun enjoying the outdoors together.”
“Try new hobbies and be better at the ones I’m already doing. I have a lot of different interests and I’d like to explore even more. I am thinking of listening to new music, creating an art portfolio, and trying ceramics. I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions, but this year I decided I would. I am planning on dedicating at least 30 minutes a day to practicing these new hobbies.”
“Create better study habits and become a more exemplary student. I want to end my high school life with the best grades that I possibly can and feel as though I accomplished as much as I can. I’m looking forward to hopefully fulfilling my goal.”
