As 2016 comes to an end, we asked some of our favourites from the fashion and film industry about what their New Year Resolutions are going to be this time around. Have a look:
“To spend less time on phone hahah! And also to donate more to people who need it “
“Laugh more and make people laugh! #BeHappy “
“To make more time for my family as I’ve missed out on a lot of important family events because of my demanding lifestyle due to my career.”
“Take myself less seriously. Work hard, cut out negative people.”
“To try to be as positive as possible, meditate more and relax more. And of course, fitness goals!”
“Well I guess I am looking forward to promoting Yalghaar and Rangreza both come out next year and I will promote them way more than JANAAN. So watch out for these two :)”
“To be more mindful.”

“I plan to focus on doing more of what makes me happy. That’s the overarching theme of my New Year’s Resolution for 2017. Personally, committing more time to my boys and their activities. Cultivating their interests and passions. It’s amazing how far a little more nurturing goes! I’m also going to plan a trip to Iran with my family and learn more about my wife’s heritage. It’s been a long time coming and 2017 is the year to make it happen. Plus stop dissing those Persian classes my wife keeps booking for me, as saying “chetori khobee” (how are you, are you okay?) isn’t good enough lol!
Professionally, work a lot harder on community based projects that give back. I’m going to be helping young talent develop their skills and love for the arts. Giving away as much knowledge as possible and hopefully learn a lot in the process. Using technology to its potential to engage our youth is a key area of focus for me.
I pray that 2017 will be filled with more good news and smiles. Here’s to a fulfilling New Year.” #GodBless
“I don’t know how or when it happened, but because of so much negativity and hate on social media, I ended up developing a pictures phobia. So 2017 is going to be my year of telling myself, get over the phobia and don’t let other people’s opinions get to you. Life is about creating memories and moments, and yes of course while every moment is more than just a “selfie”… it’s also important to have a record later on in life of who you were, the times you shared with friends and family. Also, I don’t think I’m going to go a new year and New me route this year; I think 2016 has been a year where I really grew as a person, I got a better focus and perspective on what I want my work brand to be, and this is what I want to continue to consolidate. To be able to make my friends and family happy, and to be healthy and travel when I can. Bring on 2017.”
“My New Years resolution is to love myself like Kanye loves himself and believe in myself like Kanye believes in himself.”
“Hoping this year brings the best of health and happiness for my family and friends, is like to prioritise with spending as much time as I can with my loved ones, dedicating more time to thank God for all his blessings and to focus more on personal health and wellbeing.”
What is your New Year Resolution for 2017?
