Will today be the day that you’ll break your New Year’s Resolutions?


Article by Fabafterfifty
Apparently 75% of us will abandon our New Year’s Resolutons today.
The good intentions to get fit, save money and lose weight will be tested to the limit today with willpower going out of the window as most of start the first full week back at work since the festive break.

Only a quarter of the 3,000 surveyed said they were confident they would stick to their resolutions throughout the whole of January .  Perhaps Caroline Carr’s tips for keeping resolutions could help those that are struggling!

The Top Ten Resolutions were:

1. Get fit and exercise
2. Save money
3. Lose weight
4. Eat healthily
5. Be more positive
6. Travel more
7. Deal with stress better
8. Be more organised
9. Make more effort with partner
10. Make more effort with appearance

Other resolutions coming into the Top 20 list included cutting down on alcohol and giving up smoking

More than a quarter  of those surveyed by allabouthealth.org.uk said they had experienced a ‘health scare’ that made them reassess their lifestyle and encouraged them to make a change in 2012.

“Setting resolutions is a great way start afresh but as the stats show it can be difficult to kick out old habits.

Although most of the resolutions were motivated by a desire to get healthier, four out of ten people said they wanted to make changes so they were a ‘better person’ with many saying they wanted to improve their relationships with those around them.

A third were pushed into making their resolution after someone had specifically asked them to change their ways and one in ten said they were doing it for their children.

Sixty per cent said they prefer to keep their resolutions to themselves with many complaining that their friends and family will try and break their resolve and tempt them back into their bad ways.

Six in ten admitted making the same resolution last year with an average of four failed attempts.

Will you be sticking to your resolutions?
