    Posted on 01/05/2016 by TeenNickBlogger

    2016 is going to be your best year yet!

    1. Rearrange your room.
    Tired of your old bed and dresser situation? Switch up your furniture arrangement for a refreshed look!

    2. Paint your nails a wacky color.

    What better way to try something a little out of character? Or if you're feeling ambitious, try out some funky nail art! (The best part is, you can take it off just as easily as you put it on!)

    3. Read for fun.
    There are so many books out there just waiting to rock your world. Head to the library and get lost in a fantasy world or dive into a biography of your favorite soccer player.

    4. Spend more time with those who lift you up.

    New Year's Resolutions

    You're way too cool to let someone bring you down. Hang out with the kind of people that love you for you!

    5. Volunteer!

    Speaking of how cool you are... use your awesome personality traits to brighten the day of someone who might need a boost. Whether you stop by a nursing home or just pay a random compliment, good deeds go a long way! (And they'll make you feel great.)

    6. Meet someone new at school.
    Maybe you've never talked to the girl in your class who loves Harry Styles just as much as you do. Making new friends can be a little scary, but there's nothing cooler than meeting knew people with similar (or different!) interests!

    7. Try a bunch of chocolate chip cookie recipes and find the best one.

    8. Start a DIY project.
    Make your own textbook covers or cut off the sleeves of an old sweater to make cozy leg warmers!

    9. Watch more animal videos.
    Their cuddliness is good for your health.

    10. Start a gratitude journal.
    You'd be surprised by how much happier you'll be when you regularly jot down all the good things in your life. The more thankful you are, the more awesome you become.
