New Year’s resolutions are a good way to create a few positive habits in your life.  Most of the time, our New Year’s resolutions revolve around working out more, eating healthier, spending more time with family, etc.  But why not shift our focus to improve ourselves a little more spiritually, as well as physically?  Here are 5 spiritual resolutions to add to your list! 🙂

Chelsea Crockett - New Year's Resolutions

  • Go to church/find a church.  If you haven’t found a church that fits you perfectly, that’s okay!  Make an effort to try out different churches and services each Sunday morning.  And if you’ve been going to the same church for years, encourage yourself to get out of bed and make it there every week!
  • Read the Bible daily.  You don’t understand the benefits of reading the Bible every day until you start to do it.  It will teach you more wisdom and knowledge that you didn’t even know existed!
  • Pray, pray, pray!  Prayer is one of the most important things in your walk of faith.  To be able to talk to God at any time of any day is a blessing, so take advantage of it!
  • Practice patience.  You’ve always heard the saying “patience is a virtue,” and that’s one of the truest sayings there is!  Practicing to be patient despite the circumstances will teach you more than you think.
  • Heal past relationships.  Forgiveness is something that can be one of the hardest things to give.  But when you heal a broken relationship, you’ll realize a weight will be lifted off your shoulders!

I encourage you to try some of these out and even add some of your own!

Happy New Year! – Chelsea

I’m usually not a “New Year’s Resolution” kind of girl. They can be kind of daunting, and when you fail at them it can make you feel down in the dumps. But, I have found a few resolutions that are more like “life goals”, if you do them you feel good about yourself, and if you don’t it doesn’t make any difference! Here are a few easy “resolutions” to take on in 2017.

  1. Stop trying to diet. Dieting is a waste of time. Drink more water and eat more fruits and veggies. Also exercise regularly! That’s all the “dieting” you need!
  2. Take a social media break. Staying off of it for a few days can help clear your mind and give you a new perspective on things. I did that when I came home from college and it was one of the best things for me.
  3. Be present with other people. This kind of goes with the one above. When you are out to dinner with friends or family, or if you are at a friend’s house hanging out, put your phone away and give them your attention.
  4. Give more compliments.new-year-resolutions
  5. Find a form of exercise you enjoy. If you like it, you are more likely to do it!
  6. Try things you’ve never done before. It could be food, exercise, movie genres, anything that you haven’t done before!
  7. Talk to older family members about their childhood. I love listening to my older family members talk about what it was like to grow up in the time period they did. You can learn so much from them, and they love sharing their memories with you!

Not all New Year’s resolutions have to be boring!

XOXO, Chels

New Year’s Resolutions… Not So Much!

Most people every year think about setting New Year’s resolutions that they almost never keep!  You know what I’m talking about!  Maybe exercising more and eating healthier, reading the Bible every day to finish it by the end of the year, or possibly spending more time with family and friends that you don’t see that often, etc.  The lists go on and on!  (And I have to admit, it’s hard to stick to them!)  I recently read an article that inspired me to try something new. So… I thought I’d share to inspire you as well!Chelsea Crockett - Fruit of the Spirit

This year, instead of making my resolution list of things to “do,” I considered making it based on ways I should “be”!  I’m trying to be more forgiving, prayerful, kind, faithful, loving, joyful, and thankful.  I really want to be mindful of how I’m acting in every situation, good or bad.  I know I won’t always be successful because we all make mistakes but I want to “be” a better, more optimistic person.  You should join me and pass on this idea….maybe bit by bit we can change the world!

Love, Chels

It’s almost 2015 which means it’s time to think about what you want to leave behind in 2014.  Time to reflect and rethink things you like and dislike about your Chelsea Crockett - New Years Quotelife.  Time to make resolutions to change your life for the better!  Perhaps you need to switch up your eating and exercising habits.  Or maybe even make new friends?  Whatever you’re thinking, it’s time to set goals and objectives for the new year!

New Year’s resolutions don’t always mean setting them solely for ourselves. As teens, we’re becoming more independent from our families and relying on friends more often.  Do we need to spend more time with our friends or family to make them feel important?  What could we change in our lives to make those people feel special?

Probably the most popular resolution we should consider making would be to eat healthy and exercise!  Whether you’re thin or overweight, it’s important to get the necessary amount of activity to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  It’s recommended for the average high school student to get 60 minutes of physical activity per day (if you can even find 60!). Simply setting a goal of 30 minutes, five days a week would be a start!

Last but not least would be to look at our effort and ability in school.  If we struggle in a certain area, how about working to change that B to an A? Studying more, staying organized, getting more sleep… Whatever your resolution is, I would love to hear about it!  Let me know below and maybe I’ll join you!

Happy New Year! – Chels

                Hi all!

                It’s that time of year when we all decide to make changes for the new year.  Of course, exercising and eating better are always on many people’s lists.  This year, however, I would like to challenge you to think outside of the box and focus on goals to help yourself and others!  Here are a few ideas.Chelsea Crockett - New Years Resolutions                Happiness is good for your health and our happiness increases when we help others.  Volunteering is a great way to help others.  Find a local charity or animal shelter where you can give a hand or help to raise money for.  If you make volunteering a resolution, you will certainly be giving back to the community and that will help you to feel really good about yourself!
                Another healthy resolution would be to stay in touch with old friends or family.  So often our lives get so busy that we fail to keep in touch with those who mean so much to us.  Just spending a little extra time with grandparents can mean the world to them and you.  You can learn so much from their wisdom and you’ll never regret the time you spent to bond with them.
                Blessings to your New Year, Insiders!  Comment below and let me know what creative resolution you have made this year to think outside the box!

My New Year’s Resolutions!

Hey Insiders, First of all, I just want to say congratulations for making it (almost) all the way to 2014! This year has been an amazing, crazy year for me….

Hey Insiders,

First of all, I just want to say congratulations for making it (almost) all the way to 2014! This year has been an amazing, crazy year for me. I have learned so much about myself. For me, 2014 is going to be a year of new opportunities, change, and growth! Now there are the usual New Year’s resolutions like “I want to eat healthier” or “I want to exercise more”, but mine are a little different.

            Since YouTube is a big part of my life, I thought I would start out with those resolutions. Recently, I have hit 540,000 followers! This was a huge step for me and I am so grateful and thankful for all of my followers! OnChelsea Crockett new years that note, I would really like to reach 600,000 followers this year. My next YouTube resolution is to make better quality videos and to create a better schedule for them. By creating better videos, I can give my viewers a more enjoyable experience. Also, by creating a schedule for my videos, you guys can see what day I am posting each video. This way you can make sure to catch each video you don’t want to miss! Another part of my resolution is to create more time for YouTube. Like I said, you guys are so important to me, and YouTube is a huge part of my life, so I would like to have more time to devote to it.

            Now for my personal resolutions. This year I would like to become closer to God and spend more time learning about Him. I wouldn’t be where I am without Him! Also, I would like to spend more time with my family. Finding time for family is really important because they are the people who support you and help you through every obstacle in your life. This year I would also like to branch out socially and make new friends! Don’t get me wrong, the friends I have right now are amazing, but you can never have too many friends!  My next resolution is to be more open and honest with people, and that includes you all! I consider you guys family, so it is really important to be open and honest with you all. My last resolution is to give myself time to breathe. I am always so busy, and I need to make time to relax and catch my breath.

            I know it is going to be hard to keep up with all of these resolutions, but I am going to try my best! My advice on New Year’s resolutions is to make them realistic. If you make them unrealistic you will lose motivation and just quit them all together! Also, don’t stress about them. Just try and be the best person you can be. This year is going to be a great year for all of us, I just know it!

XOXO, Chels
