So it's 2016 now, most of you guys/girls may have worked out a wish-list for the glory days ahead (Right?!) But hey, let's just say some of them, if not all, are just a "Ctrl V" from last year. (好烦!) Well there's no need to be embarrased, we've all been there ! So here is something that might help you better plan & stick to your 2016 resolution, be it a change for the better, or simply just stay the way you were!

眼下又是新的一年,又到了定下【新年决心】(New Year Resolution)的时候了!不管去年的决心坚持了多久,让我们在新年之际重振旗鼓,好好规划一个更好的自己!(并且假装它们都能一一实现)


So take a look at the (probably) 5 most popular new year resolutions (or Every year resolution lol) Start from the 5#

首先来看一下大家心目中排名Top 5的“人气”resolution吧~~~

5. Watch less TV: The average person wastes a lot of time watching TV, time that could have been better spent developing skills, learning or keeping your body active. Once you manage to cut down on TV time, you will realize just how long and productive a day can really be.

*注意被动语态+could have 的妙用~

*减少看电视的时间 = cut down on 

e.g. For 2016 I shoud really cut down on my Starbucks cost !

4.Give up cigarettes: A bit of bad habit that a lot of people don’t know how to kick, smoking will not only endanger your health, but can burn a hole in your wallet as well. Just be prepared to dedicate a lot of will power to giving up cigarettes once and for all.

*will power 是意志力的意思

下决心 dedicate will power to doing 

 (通常是要很强大的意志力才能做到的事)

e.g. 新年愿望是下决心看很多很多的书 = dedicate a lot of will power to reading.

  

3. Start saving money: Once you have your debt under control, it’s time to start putting some money aside. A rainy day fund and some extra money that can go towards traveling abroad, fixing up the house or buying a new car are a welcome change of pace. Make use of these hacks and apps to save money effectively.

*出来混难免有手头紧的时候,这种时期就叫“ a rainy day”, 所以 a rainy day fund 就是应急、备用基金。当然,它有一个好基友,叫做“A pay day loan”,如果这个月手头紧,就可以问百万说“Can I get a pay-day loan?”那么在下个月领工资的那天(pay day)一定要还给百万哟~

hacks and apps 倒不是黑客,就是比较俏皮的说法,指时下流行的app应用啦~

2. Get over an ex: It may be better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved, but it still hurts like crazy. Healing a broken heart is a process that takes time, but there are ways  and tricks to make it through this difficult time without too much pain.

Get over是度过难关的意思,可以说"get over the darkness in life"

搭配“an ex”,就是忘了那个谁谁吧!


------- And The Top 1 Goes To ----------


1.Get in shape: 

(What ~~~like there's any doubt......)

Losing weight is the top resolution for everyone, and combined with “exercise more” and “stay fit and healthy” it is something that over a third of the population wishes to achieve. It’s easy enough to start an exercise and diet program, but the trick is to find a decent one that will give you steady results and will be easy to stick to in the long run. 

* stick to it = 坚持

比起我们熟悉的“insist on”,更加地道、实用哟!

* in the long run =长期




毫无悬念~~这一条也已蝉联百万的年度Resolution十年之久 


Hopefully you are a bit more clear about the next step to plan your 2016, and wish you have a great time (even if things don't work out this year. again.) Still, if  any of these don't appear attractive enough, try below a pool of ideas from people all over the univers.
