NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS

READING COMPREHENSION B.1

1. Read the following text and match these New Years Resolutions to their suitable descriptions:
Each year we say well start doing this, or stop doing that. But more often than not our big plans get dashed
sometime in January. Here are some of the more commonly recited new years resolutions that pop up in late
December, as well as others that are more likely to make it through the 365 days and really improve your
life.
DESCRIPTIONS

RESOLUTIONS

1. This is a perennial favorite for many resolution makers, and it doesnt take
much to figure out why. The holiday season is a time to overeat and indulge
and things might come to a head, with many people reaching their fat-gain
breaking point after a New Years Eve buffet dinner.

A. DRESS MORE LIKE


MY STYLE

2, Its tempting to want to get out and see more of the world, especially if you
feel stuck in your rut or you havent been anywhere lately. This is one of the
most common resolutions, just be sure to be a bit more specific on where you
want to go because vague ideas rarely get done, but attainable goals are
something you can work with.

B. QUIT SMOKING

3. This is often considered one of the hardest habits to break, and there are
plenty of products, books, and systems to help you along. Still the most
effective method is going cold turkey.

C. TRAVEL MORE

4. If youve been putting off the annual check-up and its been awhile since
youve been given a clean bill of health, you may want to resolve to going in
for a doctors visit. Starting the year off without having to worry about a
serious medical condition looming in the background is one way to make it
great.

D. BE HEALTHIER

in a better mood, no matter what the circumstances are. The year ahead is going
to have its challenging moments, so reach for your favorite tunes more often
and get taken to your happy place instantly.
6. Between having to dress according to your employers dress code and
following the conventional fashion of todays apparel shops, you might have
lost that part of you that wants to come out. Do an overhaul of your wardrobe
and start wearing things that make you feel good.

F. LOSE WEIGHT

7. This is one of those elusive health goals that sounds great when you first get
the idea, but then gets cast aside after a few weeks. Without the proper amount
of dedication and a strategy to get it, you might be fall short and become
another statistic. Meet with a personal trainer to discuss the diet and fitness
regimen youll need to follow to succeed.

G. LISTEN TO MY
FAVOURITE MUSIC

8. Finding love is no easy chore, and keep in mind that many times you find
that special someone when you stop looking. Perhaps it might be best to work
on self-improvement so you can attract them automatically.

H. GET MORE SLEEP

9. Having this is one of the most important things you can do for your wellbeing, but many of us stay up into the wee hours, and wake up before were
fully rested. Try following the circadian rhythm by getting to bed early and
waking up early. Youll notice a big improvement right away.

I. FIND A
GIRLFRIEND/BOYFRI
END

10. This is one New Years goal that doesnt produce many success stories.
J. GET A HEALTH
Why? Its too vague. You cant quickly quantify being healthier so theres no CHECK UP
way to hold yourself accountable later. Choose something you can measure
more easily that falls under the healthy umbrella.
