New Years Resolutions
With a new year approaching the majority of us will make our New Years Resolutions. The biggest question is how many of us really stick to what we say ?
Forbes states that only 8% of People Achieve Their New Year's Resolutions and and a quarter of us the first week into the new year have already abandoned their resolution.
I wanted to find out how and when new years resolutions started. I looked up Wikipediaabout this subject. It states the
New Year's resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere , in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly niceIf you would like to read all about it visit.
I have made a resolution mostly ever year and I know I have never reached my goal. I think to many of us have unrealistic goals that are very hard to reach. I am going to try again but not make them so difficult that I really know will not be attainable. Instead of saying I will loose 25 lbs I am going to loose weight and watch what I eat and change my eating habits. This way at the end of the year if I loose 5 lbs I can now say I did follow through with my resolution.
Make easier goals and still make as many as you would like. Sit down now and start making a list of what is important to you and things you would like to change. Research your goals on the internet and see what articles can help you.
