New Year’s Resolutions?
The end of the year is a time of reflection. A review of 365 days of successes and failures, but also the promise of a brighter New Year.
To save you time/disappointment, here are the Top 10 New Year Resolutions from last year. (Source: University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology)
- Lose Weight
- Getting Organized
- Spend Less, Save More
- Enjoy Life to the Fullest
- Staying Fit and Healthy
- Learn Something Exciting
- Quit Smoking
- Help Others Achieve Their Dreams
- Fall in Love
- Spend More Time with Family
Did you know that 45% of Americans usually make New Year Resolutions, but only 8% are successful in achieving them.
38% are weight related, 34% financial and 31% are relationship based.
And one last stat… 39% people in their 20’s achieve their goals in a year compared to 14% in their 50’s.
So what does that all mean other than when we get older we should make less resolutions?
Maybe. The key is contentment with where and who we are. To love yourself and be happy. So if you want to be an Olympian and you finish a 5k this year, learn to be happy with that success and know that it’s a path to your dreams. Keep making small steps and be passionate and love everyone of them.
On this journey help and inspire someone else. Join us this year. Write your story, or be part of anther. Help others reach their resolutions, and inspire us with your stories of health, well being and successes.
Here’s to 2015 And especially number 4,8,9, 10 and bit of no. 1!
Happy New Year,
