For the new year, Sheila would like to make a resolution, or promise to herself. She doesn’t know what she should choose, though. She might decide to do something healthy, or she might help other people. Perhaps, she will resolve to do both.

A resolution is a promise of intent. It is very popular to make New Year’s resolutions, but people can resolve to do things at any time of year. How often do you make resolutions? Do you always keep your promises?
