Whether it is to save more money, get in shape, or be kinder to your neighbor, people all over the world are considering their New Year’s resolutions.
However, making a resolution is often easier than keeping one.
According to Business Insider, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February.
“Getting in shape” is one of the most common resolutions.
7News spoke to a doctor who says resolutions should be more specific, but make sure they are attainable.
“Our New Year’s resolutions are typically sudden changes, and humans are not good with sudden change. We need to be gradual. We need to be realistic. We need to be dedicated to our goals. It’s the long term, not the short term, said Dr. C. Clark Milton.
Remember that no one is perfect, so if you skip the gym for a day, do not beat yourself up for it. Just make sure to get back on track as soon as possible.
