35 Resolutions Every Londoner Tries To Make and Doesn’t Keep

It’s not that we think that the ushering in of a new year will bring about a personality transplant worth of an Oscar performance. It’s just that there are some things we like to tell ourselves we’ll do in the decidedly desperate hope that maybe, maybe we’ll actually do them. It’s the same reason you haven’t set your Instagram to private yet and why you leave an inch of wine in the bottle after drinking the rest.


1. You’ll start using bags for life.

2. You’ll never shop on Oxford Street on a Saturday.

3. You’ll only shop in Tescos/Sainsburys at the Golden Hour.

4. You’ll refuse to pay above £5 for a single.

5. You’ll try and visit your Zone 4 mates once a month.

6. You’ll ‘give back’ once a month.

7. You’ll exercise 3 times a week.

8. You won’t buy another gym membership.

23. You’ll attempt to learn all the Tube routes.

24. You’ll increase your radius on Tinder.

25. You will go on ‘dates’.

26. You will go on ‘dates’ to the museum/the theatre/anywhere but the pub.

27. You will start cycling to work everyday.

28. You won’t get the Tube on the weekend.

29. You will take the stairs at Covent Garden.

30. You’ll listen when someone talks to you on public transport.
