YP team's 2015 New Year's resolutions

YP team's 2015 New Year's resolutions

Welcoming in the new year also means picking up new interests and saying goodbye to bad habits. The team share what they plan to achieve this year…

See the world

My new year's resolution is to travel more. Hong Kong is a great base for exploring all of Asia. Plus, there are so many cheap flight deals which I don't think I've made the most of, and I know I haven't seen enough places in the world yet. My aim is to visit at least three new countries in 2015!

Make time for a chat

This year I resolve to communicate with my friends and family more. Sure, I get everyone's Facebook feeds and the occasional Tweet, but I never feel like I'm really in touch with them, so in 2015 I plan to change that.
Sam Gusway, Sub-editor

Deadline in 5, 4, 3 …

I think my new year's resolution for 2015 will be the same as for 2014, which is not to put off tasks until the last minute. It's a really bad habit but not doing anything always seem more attractive than doing what's required. Things like new year's resolutions.

Cook up a storm

I'm tired of the web team making fun of me for not knowing what to do in the kitchen. Maybe it's time to tackle cooking. I got a taster at French Window over summer. Now it's time to get real … that being said, I don't normally trust myself with resolutions. So we'll see.

Keep it local

My resolution for 2015 is to explore more of Hong Kong. I've been living here for a year now, but still feel like I haven't seen most of what the city has to offer. That needs to change. It is time to stop spending the weekends in the same old places and going out there to find something new.

Take sports to the next level

Being an armchair sports fan, I am really determined to actually "play" a sport this year. Tennis springs to my mind, because there's a sports centre near my flat. Although I love watching live cricket and tennis on the telly, maybe it's time to head off to the tennis courts with a friend and practise those Roger Federer drop shots. But there's a problem: I need to get off that couch first!

Step away from the cats

Since starting Muay Thai for the YP Get Fit challenge, my resolution is to keep it up. In the past few months, I've become stronger and I'm naturally eating healthier foods, so even my skin is better! It's tough though, 'cause I'm fairly lazy and enjoy my time on the couch with my cats too much …

Language loving

Writing for Young Post is loads of fun, but I'm getting out of practice with my Chinese. I recently noticed that I read and write a lot more slowly than I used to. New year's resolution: read more Chinese books, and write weekly diary entries.

Just keep walking

Meet those 10,000 steps a day - or at least push myself to move a little bit each day. I loathe sport, but exercise is so important for your health, so it's really time I found something I didn't hate to help me get active! Oh, and take advice from Disney, and sometimes just learn to let it go …
Karly Cox, Deputy editor

Move over, Hulk

My resolution for 2015 is all about getting even stronger! My big goal this year is to be able to deadlift 100kg. Of course, to do this, I'll also have to maintain the healthy habits I developed at the end of 2014 with the YP Get Fit challenge: eating better, exercising regularly and taking better care of myself. 2015, here I come!

Stop making excuses

I don't believe in new year's resolutions. Making them seems excessive when you can simply choose to do whatever you want whenever you want. The whole point of free will is doing just that. I also dislike having schedules dictate my personal life. So carpe diem, or seize the day! Don't wait for new year.
Wong Tsui-kai, Reporter
