5 Ways To Make and Keep a New Year's Resolution
It's getting to that point of the year again where Christmas is over, and for some of us, we're just counting down the days until NYE so we can celebrate all over again.
Do we know what day we're in? Not really... Do we know what we're doing tomorrow? Maybe eat and drink again? (there's probably some biscuits somewhere that haven't been eaten yet.) And then the dreaded question everyone LOVES to ask- so, what are your New Year's Resolutions?
Here comes the mental conundrum. Do I tell Aunt Sue of my plans to cut down on my mildly serious online shopping addiction? Or, shall I just give a bog-standard answer of 'I'm going to get fit this year and join a gym'? According to The Telegraph, the 5 most common New Year's resolutions are:
1) Exercise more
2) Lose weight
3) Eat more healthily
4) Take a more active approach to health
5) Learn new skill or hobby
I'm sure we've all chosen one of these resolutions at some point, but the question is how long did you stick to it? I know for sure I've managed a good 36 hours into the new year before I've had a f*ck it whatever moment and eaten an entire Terry's chocolate because I just WANTED to, ok? The rebellious streak is us human beings sometimes just can't help itself and for someone who loves chocolate, the resolution of giving it up entirely was not only unrealistic for me but downright stupid.
I've learnt from these mistakes and had other resolutions that I've actually managed to keep- and for longer than 2 days too! So, I've done some research and thought I'd pass on some tips for you on how you too can make and stick to your resolution whatever that may be for 2020.
