4 Most Common New Years Resolutions
Come New Year’s Eve and you will find social media sites, gossip magazines and TV channels filled with New Year’s resolutions. The end of the old year and the beginning of the new one is a good time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. Not surprisingly, a lot of people have a wish list of things to do and goals to achieve. It’s easy to make a resolution, but not so easy to fulfill it. But if your resolution is realistic and if you work hard at fulfilling it, then there is no reason why you will not succeed.
So here are the 4 most common New Year’s resolutions:
- Quit smoking: This is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions and many smokers repeat it year after year. If you are a longtime smoker and have given up several times only to start smoking again, then only a firm New Year’s resolution will work for you. Let everyone know that you are quitting and ask them to help you. Throw away all your cigarettes; avoid the company of smokers and every time you feel like smoking, remind yourself that you have quit and that you will never touch it again.
- Quit drinking: This is another popular New Year’s resolution. If you are one of those people whose life and career have been jeopardized by drinking, then the New Year is the right time to start. Make your resolution known to everyone around you and ask them for help. Discard all the alcohol in your home, stay away from your drinking buddies and refrain from going to a bar or club.
- Losing weight: According to the latest statistics, over half the people in the developed world are either overweight or obese, so it is not surprising that this is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions. It takes a lot of hard work to shed that excess weight. Exercising daily and eating right are the keys to losing weight. With a lot of patience and hard work, there is no reason why you won’t succeed.
- Spending more time with family and friends: People are so busy with life that unfortunately there is less times to spend with loved ones.
Therefore, it is hardly surprising that this is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Before saying that you don’t have the time, the next time a friend or family member wants to spend some time together, remind yourself of the more important things in life, which are really your loved ones.
