[美式英语]什么是New Year Resolution?

“在新的一年里,我要戒掉碳酸饮料。” “我要减肥!“ ”我要日行一善!“ 每年伊始,大家是否也都会给自己定一个新年规划呢?其实居住在地球另一端的人们也都会有类似的愿景。这个就是我们所谓的 "New Year Resolution" ,当然,每个人会有不同的规划,如果你是认真考虑一个可行的规划,那不妨看看下面的建议。

I will stop drinking so many sugary drinks. I will fight less with my brother. I will start learning a new language. I will pick up one piece of trash from the streets every day. These types of promises you make to yourself are called resolutions, and every New Year many Americans resolve to make changes in their lives. Most New Year’s Resolutions focus on self improvement. Some people make small resolutions, like saying one nice thing to someone each day. Others think bigger, like promising to train for a marathon. But some people resolve to do charitable work, like visiting orphans, donating clothing to the homeless, or cleaning the neighborhood.

 

What’s the secret to making a good New Year’s Resolution? Make sure it’s achievable. While resolutions should be challenging, they should also be realistic. Instead of resolving to completely change your diet, promise yourself you’ll eat more fruits and vegetables everyday or that you’ll cut down on fried food. Instead of trying to learn a new language fluently, just promise yourself you’ll start learning one. Take small steps. Don’t get discouraged. And stick to those resolutions!
