Drink More Water, Stay Calm—8 Stars Share Their 2017 New Year's Resolutions
After the Champagne has been popped and the ball has dropped, it'll officially be time to start the new year. But before you close the door on 2016, there's one last thing to take care of: your New Year's resolution. Whether or not you court long-term goals all the way through 2017, doing some self-reflecting on personal aspirations may give you the confidence to go to the gym for the first time in weeks, or start that project that's been gathering dust on your desk.
While some individuals are eager to get a jump start (we see you, Blake Lively), others have trouble articulating their goals or get caught up in making ambitious commitments. To help get your inspirational juices flowing, we tapped an eclectic mix of stars on the red carpet and asked them what they're resolving to do in 2017.
Read on to see what Charlie Puth, Tessa Thompson, and more stars have to say.
"Drink more water, because you can never drink enough. Two liters is supposed to be the thing, right? I'm always really ambitious. A couple of years ago my resolution was to drink a gallon of water."
"Keep working towards your goals, be a better version of yourself, but at the same time, don't take life too seriously."
"Chill more and take a couple of breaks. My life has been so hectic that I might go crazy if I continue this way. It's a great kind of hectic, but at the same time, I want to sit back and enjoy life more."

"I don't know how I feel about New Year's resolutions. Everyone says they want to work out more, and then you go hard for a week and all of a sudden it's back to normal. I don't want to put that much more pressure on myself. I'll focus on improving myself as a person."
"Start eating healthy! Every year I say I'm going to do it and never do it, but maybe this year will be the year for me."
"Dare to talk politics. It's super important to talk about it, especially if you have a platform and that you try to embrace everybody. Try to keep a dialogue open and be positive."
"I don't make New Year's resolutions. It puts a lot of pressure on us. It's not that I'm not goal-oriented—I used to do it. Listen to yourself instead of trying to meet all these expectations."
