Chicago — We all know how it feels for the New Year to come around and fill everyone’s spirits for a bright future. For some this is a fresh start, to start a new hobby, to graduate, to fall in love, and more experiences that have the possibility of taking place. The most cliche goals we typically hear around this time of year include starting on a new fitness journey or cooking more and eating out less.
Not saying it’s not possible, but many users joke on social media regarding the attempted failed resolutions but “at least you tried” mindset.
Despite the majority of assumed New Year resolutions would consist of physical acts, many Gen Z are going deeper within for their personal journeys. In this generation, I definitely feel that we’re more in tune with our mental health and perspectives on the new world. We are more opinionated and outspoken than previous generations and many have expressed the necessity of being more emotionally aware of themselves and others.
Although previous generations may have had a “swept under the rug” philosophy, Gen Z wants to do the inner work head on.
