New Year, New You!

blog February friendship New Years resolution

Let’s be honest. How many of you have already called it quits on your New Year’s resolution? I was writing an article for my newsletter at work last week and researching NY resolutions and came across an article in the NY Post that said it takes just 32 days for the average person to break their resolution. However, 68% of people report giving up even sooner than that. What’s even crazier, is that one in seven Americans never really believe they will follow through in the first place! Interesting! Do we make one just to have something to talk about? I can remember setting these types of resolutions myself in the past, but then I became tired of never following through. I felt like a failure, like I let myself down. I didn’t want to do that.  I like winning. Do we have any list people out there? This girl LOVES checking things off a list and seeing a slate wiped clean! It was this realization that made think, I can win! It started with something small that would focus on making me a better person. Those were the hardest, but the easiest to achieve. One year, I resolved to speak to every person a saw in a store that I knew, even if I really didn’t care for them (don’t judge, I know you’ve all gone the opposite way in the store when you saw the guy or gal from high school you really didn’t want to acknowledge). Another year, it was completing 30 random acts of kindness. If you haven’t made a resolution this year, it’s not too late. New Year, New You. Who said it had to be at the beginning of the year? Afterall, there is evidence proving those are broken anyway. What do you resolve to do different this year?
