GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — After a year dominated by the coronavirus, many people are ready to say goodbye to 2020 and never look back. Marcus Breman, a Grand Junction local says, “it wasn’t really a good year for anybody. I think the entire human race can agree on that.”
Therefore, as we start 2021 it’s a time for everyone to set lofty goals and have new beginnings. It is also a time to access the areas of our lives that need change or improvement. Thereby, many people are hoping to eat better and exercise a little more.
In addition, age is not stopping people from making 2021 better than 2020. Gabi Noble says, “my resolutions are to do better in school, and maybe help my mom out more.”
Now that 2020 is in the past, many people are excited for the possibilities this new year will bring. Noble says, “hopefully by 2021 COVID-19 will start to calm down and everybody will start to get back to normal.” Breman adds, “I’m just hoping 2021 is going to be better because we have vaccines for COVID.”
Meanwhile, everyone has big resolutions set, but experts remind us to have little goals as well. Dr. Anne Gilbert, Medical Director of Virtual Behavioral Health Team, says, “little resolution could be different every day, like today I’m just going to email my best friend and say thank you.”
