“I stopped doing New Year’s resolutions,” Chastain shares in the video above. “I used to do them a lot, but then I stopped…I would make the New Year’s resolution and I was like, ‘I’m never going to go to the gym six days a week so why bother saying it.’”

Instead, the star has a new take on what ending one year and beginning another should really be about—spending quality time with those you love. “Now, I’m more excited about the idea of New Year’s Eve—what have I done in the past year and who do I wish I’d seen more of,” the actress says. “So for me, definitely the holidays are about getting together with my friends and my family, trying to connect with them. And that’s the most fun part.”
