Do you make New Year resolutions? how long to you keep up with them?

Statistics on New Year’s resolutions say that 40 to 45% of American adult make one or more resolutions each year.

 

Among the top New Year’s resolutions are resolutions about weight loss, going to the gym, and stopping to smoke, improve relationships, spend time with kids, money management, career related etc.

 

How resolutions are maintained as time goes on? Not so well after all:

  • 75% – past the first week
  • 71% – past 2 weeks
  • 64% – after one month
  • 46% – after 6 months

 

While a lot of people who make new years resolutions do break them, research shows that making resolutions is useful. People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.

 

What about you? Do you make specific New Year resolutions? What is your best in keeping up with them?
