As our contestants embark on the second month of keeping up with their resolutions, they took the time to sit down and reflect on their progress with Bearing News. From being more vocal about positive thoughts to heading to bed sooner, our contestants are still going strong. Some of the best ways to keep up with resolutions include starting with small goals that build up to a larger goal and publicizing your plan to friends and family, according to the American Psychological Association.[vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Siena Juhlin, freshman” google_fonts=”font_family:Cabin%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C500%2C500italic%2C600%2C600italic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”]Resolution: Get more sleep[vc_empty_space][TS-VCSC-Vimeo content_vimeo=”https://vimeo.com/154316559″][vc_empty_space][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Audrey Milyo, sophomore
