Did you make a new year’s resolution? If you did, you’re in the minority – only about a quarter of us made resolutions for this year, and most of those are under 30.
The reason why as you get older you don’t make resolutions is probably because, year after year, 80% of resolutions fail, and you’re over it!
If you really want to make a resolution stick, you must stick with it – we don’t turn new habits into old habits until we do it every day for at least two months.
First and foremost, start small, and make your goals manageable. Write them down and put them somewhere you can see them, like on your bathroom mirror. And celebrate those small victories as you go along.
Stick with it, and you’ll defy the odds by keeping those resolutions!
