With the festive season now nearly over it’s that time of year again where most people decide on what New Year’s resolutions they are going to make. During the holiday’s people have overindulged with parties and nights out so decide to give themselves resolutions to keep to whether it is for health issues or personal goals.
A New Year’s Resolution has been around for years. It is a commitment by a person to achieve goals at work or kick a habit they may have until the next year. However more than half fail to see their resolutions through.
The most popular and common New Year’s resolutions that people make are:-
- Eating Healthy
- Joining a gym
- Give up smoking
- Give up drinking
- Spend time with family and friends
- Learn a new skill
- Enjoy life more
- Not to get stressed
- Achieve career goals
The above is mostly the general ones that people want to change about their lives. So come January everybody sets out to achieve their resolutions.
With many people going back to work and setting themselves a New Year’s resolution it helps to make January more fun for the week back to work. Some only make them for a month sticking to their resolution of not drinking for a month. Others make them for a longer period of time.
Gyms are packed with people joining in January with everybody keen to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Most gyms offer different types of incentives to people to get their membership, but by February/ March they start to empty and the buzz takes a dip with many people losing interest with their New Year’s resolutions taking a back seat.
Most supermarkets will see a rise in how many people buy fruit and vegetables to start their healthy eating. Just like the gym in the first couple of months this starts to decline with resolutions being a thing of the past.
As the years pass more people choose not to make a New Year’s resolution as many admit they cannot keep to them so people decide to make goals for themselves instead of labelling it as a New Year’s resolution.
So if you have made a resolution or goal try to stick to it as it will benefit you throughout the year and if you haven’t there is always next year!
