17 January - Ditch New Year's Resolutions Day
The start of the year can resemble a fresh start for many but it doesn’t take long before the old habits start creeping back in, and those unrealistic expectations of ourselves are shattered. Breaking New Year resolutions is common - a habit of a lifetime for some - and has been around for as long as New Year resolutions have been made in the first place.
Only about 8% of people do actually keep their resolutions for the year. Those that do make a New Year's resolution are ten times more likely to achieve their goals when they vocalize their plans and ideas. Those who do not vocalize the goal as a New Year's resolution, often fail.
Be honest with yourself. Set yourself realistic goals, achieved by small changes done regularly. It's amazing how a little can go a long way.
