What is your New Year’s resolution? About half of people make resolutions each year. What is the reason that resolutions are so popular?
World of Psychology: Why We Make New Year’s Resolutions
One of the reasons is tradition. People like the idea that they are doing things along with others and tend to do things at the same time of year. Since people tend to be more successful with resolutions at the beginning of the year, even if you don’t feel certain, will you make a resolution anyway?
2017 will be a year of change. When considering a resolution, ask yourself what you would like to change this year. Do you want to eat healthier, save money, exercise more, change jobs, have a child, try minimalism, be a more involved parent, move your baby to the crib, try to focus on the bigger things and let the little things go, visit family more, clean more, clean less, or read more? The opportunities for change are endless.
Consider the new year an opportunity for something you have wished for this year and make it happen!
