BRONXVILLE N.Y. - With every new year comes the chance to start over, which is why making New Year’s resolutions are so popular. Below are some Bronxville residents' resolutions, and how they plan on keeping them.
Edward Halloran, 79, said he's going to maintain his active lifestyle by drinking eight glasses of water a day.
"What really keep's me going is drinking a lot of water," said Halloran. "It's the fuel that flushes out all my toxins. If I'm going to make any resolutions it's going to be to continue drinking water to stay healthy. This way I can continue walking everywhere I go and stay independent."
Dan Veru, 51, said he's going to pay more attention to his dog.
"My dog here is one of my best friends, so he needs some more love and care this year," said Veru. "I think I'm going to make an effort to take him to the dog park a little more often. It will take some more effort, but I know it'll make him happy, which is all that matters."
Cynthia Florek, 25, said her New Year's resolution is to say yes.
"I want to be sure to take every adventure life serves up," said Florek. "I want to go on as many modeling appointments and auditions as possible to really experience life as much as possible. I hope that this new attitude and approach will continue to propel my career to the next level."
Emil John, 53, said the most important kind of resolution is one that benefits other people.
"In the wake of our recent tragedies like Sandy and Sandy Hook I'd like to volunteer more often," said John. "There's always so many people out there who need help, and if you're going to do something with your time it should be something productive. It should be something that actually makes a difference."
