Do you have a New Year's resolution...?

This year I will...

New Year's Resolutions are meant to be broken, like rules. Last year, according to a poll by YouGov, one in five people came up with something to do differently next year. However, it has been claimed that the majority will have given up on their resolutions by 10 January.

They’re slippery things — New Year’s resolutions — aren’t they? We make them with the best intention and drop them in a second. They are one of the most important things in our lives and we focus so much in ensuring they are kept. When we break them, we feel terrible, but we shouldn’t as we should be flexible and adaptable. We should be able to change our resolutions as needed and whenever, to harmonise with the events of our lives. We should never feel bad to change or stop our resolutions. 

Successful resolutions don’t need to look perfect, no one has to see them. They don’t need to be on trend. They don’t need to have anything to do with the gym, or the refrigerator, except if you want them to. They only need to mean something to the person in charge: You. 

Set specific, measurable, accepted, realistic and timebound resolutions. 

Your resolution must be specific to one thing and you must be able to know you’ve achieved it. You yourself must accept it and it must be within your reach. It also must have a time limit.
