NEW BEGINNINGS: Your Favs Share Their Goals for the New Year
New Year, New You! 2020 is upon us, and with a new year also brings a new decade. It’s never been a better time for a fresh start, but remember – being a “new you” doesn’t have to mean holding yourself to vague resolutions you’ll never keep.
This year, why not swap out the tired resolutions for more attainable goals that will keep you motivated and inspired all year long? You’re more likely to spend 6 hours each month at an animal shelter than “volunteer more,” and you’ll probably stick to reading 2 non-school books per week rather than just “read more books.” Giving yourself simpler, more specific goals won’t just make you more likely to complete them, but you’ll end up getting even more done!
Wondering how celebs and influencers tackle the new year? Us too! That’s why we caught up with some of your favorite stars to find out what they’re looking forward to most in the new year. From working on new music to spending more time giving back, they’re sounding off about what they’re hoping to accomplish in 2020!
