It's nearly that time of year again where you can turn over a new leaf, start from scratch, and try not to have as many fights with your siblings. In order to start fresh, the Rule family have picked one resolution that they hope will guide them throughout their new year.

Each year millions of people around the world decide to pick that one special resolution which will enable them to do something differently for the next 365 days.

Whether that's learning to control your temper (and your colourful choice of language) or become as bootylicious as Beyonce by working out in the gym and laying off the left over Christmas cake, it's clear that when there's a new year, there's the desire for a new you - people want to make a change.

Apart from the usual resolutions such as eating better, working out more and being happy, some of the Rule girls have more ambitious goals, such as cutting down on using so many hair products and even finalising a backyard blitz. Some may even inspire what you pick for your 2017 resolution.


"In 2017 I look forward to improving my school report"


"I aim on cutting down on straightening my hair."


"To get sleep - I've just turned 18 so I've been clubbing a lot and missing out on all my sleep so I really need to catch up on all of it."


"Stop swearing when I’m angry."


"To get healthier: Cleaner eating, more exercising every day – (I know it sounds boring so I’ll add this one too) Meeting deadlines better because I’m all over the place!"


"To be happy and travel a lot more then this year."


"Finishing the last touches of renovation to our house."


"To spend more time in nature and outdoors with my boys things like camping and bush walking. This year we’ve been so busy so now it’s just like let’s get outdoors."


"NYE Resolution: Being more organized – I need to get it together."


"Sticking to the one I made for 2016 – which was cutting down on sugar – let’s try that again in 2017"
