It’s that time of year when we all start digging deep to find a fitting New Year’s resolution. If you’ve done the stereotypical lose weight, eat healthier, get organized resolutions, it may be time to change it up. Stuck on new ideas? Here are 20 celebrity New Year’s resolutions for 2021 you may want to consider.
Candace Cameron Bure
Stick to What I’ve Learned Through the Pandemic
It’s no secret that 2020 was a game-changer for many of us. Candace Cameron Bure tells Us Weekly that she wants to stick to what she’s learned through the pandemic and respect her family time more than she has in the past. The producer, author, and Full House actress says that while she really doesn’t make resolutions, she hopes to stay true to the promises she made in March 2020 when the pandemic began.
Austen Kroll says his word for 2020 was “moderation” and that’s something he’s carrying through to 2021. So, he’s trying it again. Though everyone is talking about the Southern Charm reality star’s love life these days — like his breakup with Madison LeCroy this season of Southern Charm or rumors about his friendship with Kristin Cavallari — he says it’s time to focus. He wants to get things going, and his business to thrive.
Tori Spelling & Jennie Garth
TORI: Stop Talking…
Well, that’s not really her resolution for herself. Rather, that’s what 90210 co-star (and friend) Jennie Garth suggested Spelling should do for the New Year.
JENNIE: Stop Wearing Turtlenecks
Since Jennie Garth had a resolution for Tori Spelling, Spelling had to get her back. She suggested Jennie Garth should stop wearing turtlenecks in 2021!
More Empathy and Kindness
While it’s not as much a resolution as it is a hope for 2021, actress Busy Phillips says she’s looking for more empathy and kindness in the coming year. Phillips tells Us Weekly she hopes that a continued value is placed on those things in our culture and our country.
Andrew East & Shawn Johnson
HIM: Serve the Community
The former NFL player says he would like to serve the community more. Andrew East tells Us Weekly that on an every-other-week basis he would like to find ways to serve the community. He says it’s something he did a lot of growing up and is something he would like to see continue.
HER: Have Mommy-Daughter Time
The Olympic gymnast says just like she and her husband Andrew East have a date night, she would like to have mommy-daughter time with their one-year-old baby girl once a month. She said she would like the same for East with daddy-daughter time.
Peace, Harmony, and Happiness
Isn’t that what we all want in our lives? A little peace, harmony, and happiness? Reality star Savannah Chrisley says that’s all she wants. She says everything else like success and business will follow.
Melissa Joan Hart
Be with My Kids More
Actress Melissa Joan Hart says being with her kids more is just one of her New Year’s resolutions. One idea? She says maybe taking them out for individualized ice cream runs. Besides spending more time with her kids, the actress also says she’d like to continue with her piano lessons and hit the gym more.
Starting Over Fresh
Bachelor Nation’s Melissa Rycroft says she doesn’t usually make New Year’s resolutions, but she’d like to start the year over fresh with the family. She says she wants to stay healthy and happy and make it better than last year!
Gwyneth Paltrow revealed her 2021 New Year’s resolution after sharing a video on Instagram where she was talking about a new Goop face oil. At the end of the video, she drops the oil and a loud f-bomb along with it. At the end of her post, Paltrow wrote about how she is committed to swearing less in the New Year.
Vivica A. Fox
To Grow and Be Happy
Vivica A. Fox told Extra that she wants to continue to grow and be happy in 2021. As the actress prepares to turn 50 this year, Fox also says she aims to stay in shape in the New Year as well.
Actor Ken Jeong is known for his comedic skills, so perhaps this answer is meant to be funny. But besides traveling less, he also hopes to spend more time with his family in 2021. (Hopefully that one isn’t a joke.)
Go Through Emails and Unsubscribe
You know all of those emails from stores that tell you about sales? Well, TV personality and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge, Ross Mathews, says he plans to go through all of them and unsubscribe so that he no longer wakes up to 4,000 emails in 2021.
Live in the Now
Okay, so this celebrity resolution is from 2020, but it’s still a good one to keep on the list. The design guru, HGTV reality star, and now Magnolia Network boss challenged herself last year to live for the now, to take in every breath, sight, and sound. With everything we went through last year, this is something that many people may be considering for 2021.
Digest News Thoughtfully
Here’s another one from 2020 that can still be used this year. John Mayer shared his desire to stay informed in 2020 and to be able to tell whether he’s reading fake or real news.
Be Authentically Present
Singer Richard Marx says his number one resolution is to “become an expert at being authentically present in whatever moment I’m in. Not easy but worth practicing.”
Stop Binge-Watching Reality-TV
We’re not sure how well the former Glee actress was able to keep this one, since last year we were all home for quite a while. However, Michele said while she was still going to make time for new episodes, reruns were out of the picture. Of course, she also had a rough 2020 with the death of former castmate Naya Rivera, followed by former fans and castmates calling her out for her allegedly hateful (and possibly racist) behavior back while filming Glee. And she had a baby.
Tell People How Important They Are
KISS rocker Paul Stanley says in 2021 he wants to be sure people close to him know they are blessings. He also wants to make sure he tells everyone that he loves, that he does love them.
Take Good Care of Myself
Journalist Elizabeth Vargas says she wants to take good care of herself in 2021. She told NPR, “To paraphrase Hamilton, worry less and smile more.” Vargas says she’s also making a resolution to return all emails the same day she gets them.
