Every January, thousands of Americans make promises to themselves that they will change and/or improve various aspects of their lives. Many subscribe to the notion of “a new year, a new you”. But why is it that these resolutions almost never last past January 17th?
Does that second donut look too good to pass up? Or maybe the couch feels much more comfortable than your brand-new running shoes?
Good ol’ will-power could be the biggest challenge, but many don’t plan and educate themselves on how to go about improving and changing their lives.
According to Time.com Lists, the top ten most commonly broken New Year’s Resolutions are:
- Lose Weight and Get Fit
- Quit Smoking
- Learn Something New
- Eat Healthier and Diet
- Get Out of Debt and Save Money
- Spend More Time with Family
