New Year’s Resolution


 

The New Year is a time to reflect on the changes we want or need to make. A New Year(‘s) resolution is a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year

“Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?”

 Myself, yes, I’m going to eat more healthily  and do more exercise. What about you?
