Sticking to your New Year’s resolutions is truly a touch challenge. Here’s a list of the commonly broken New Year resolutions to help you better prepare for them.
New Year represents a new life, a new beginning for us to do better. It’s a brand new chance to reach our goals and targets that we didn’t hit from the previous year. This is why listing down all of your New Year’s Resolutions is pretty important and purely symbolic.
It’s pretty easy to list down all of your resolutions in a piece of paper. The hard part is sticking with it. Yes, you might do all of them for the first few months of the year but can you stick with them until December hits?
The lack of willpower, determination and self discipline often result into failed resolutions. To help you better prepare physically and mentally, here’s a list of the 10 most commonly broken New Year’s resolution.
Get physically fit.
This is the commonly broken New Year resolution in each and every person’s list. After consuming great amount of food from the previous months, we all decide to shed some pounds at the start of brand new year. Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done. Most people fail to stick with their fitness plan after a month.
Quitting smoking might be easy for some but a tough one to accomplish for those people who are hooked into smoking. Although there are already a handful of alternatives available, some people find it really hard to give up their stick of cigars. But if you really wanted to quit smoking for once, best to seek professional help and advice.
Learn new skills
We all wanted to learn and acquire new skills as the New Year progress. Unfortunately, for people who are quite old, leaning something new is not that easy. If you are in your teen years or early 20s, this resolution might be easier to hit.
Save more, spend less
Saving is one thing all people wanted to do, regardless of the year, occasion or event. But with the temptation around and with the advancement of technology (making it easier to shop online), we always end up spending more and saving less.
Spend more time with the family
Unless you are working at home, chances are, you are spending more time at the office or company than with your family. With the kind of fast pace world we are living in, we only get more busy thus lesser time to spend with the family.
Visit new place, city or country
There are lots of reasons why travelling, as a New Year’s resolution, tends to be broken each and every year. Budget constraints, health issues, work schedule etc are huge determining factor in fulfilling this resolution.
Quit drinking alcohol
One of the hardest resolutions to hit, ever! In any gathering, event or occasion, alcoholic drink is present so the temptation is always there.
Volunteer in your community
Well, you can’t do this if you can’t do the number 5 resolution. TIME is what you need for them to work.
Relax more, worry less
Stress is already a part of human’s lives. As much as we wanted to relax more and worry less, it seems close to impossible. It can be done but you need to be more patient and stay away from other people as much as possible.
This one goes hand in hand with the number 1 resolution. Eating healthy is a key to a healthier and fitter mind and body. But with the temptation all around you, literally, who can’t say no to a bag of chips, a can of soft drinks and delicious burgers when you’re hungry and in a hurry?
Remember, If you list down lots of resolutions this year, set a more realistic goal for each and every one of them.
