Time to wake up!
As a new year dawns upon us, we wake up to new resolutions, new promises and new beginnings. But in our heart of hearts, many of us wish to wake up to the same thing - a better world to live in. And for that to happen all of us must wake up to the change we want to see.

And short paragraph by Amity International School Students about their New year resolutions. Given these challenges, how can we take advantage of our good intentions on on New Year and make them work for us throughout the year, or at least for longer than they would naturally last.
It's to take advantage of these moments of clarity at the start of the New Year and take actions that would commit us to making good decisions in the future.
