Are you going to make a promise to do something that will improve their life in the coming year?
“The guidance outlined below is for anyone who has struggled with achieving ambitious goals they set at the start of the year.
One well-known idea involves using the SMART mnemonic acronym, meaning to make goals specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and timebound. This is a key pillar of any objective you set, but you’ll need a more tactical approach to more consistently accomplish the big goals.” – excerpted from Forbes, Dec 28, 2020
“A lot of people make New Year’s resolutions to be healthier. According to a 2019 survey from YouGov, 50% of Americans who made resolutions said that they would exercise more in 2020. Another 2019 survey from YouGov found that 47% of British people have made a resolution to exercise more at some time in the past.
Forty-three percent of Americans making resolutions for 2020 said they wanted to eat healthier, as have 41% of Brits at some time in the past.
Losing weight was popular in the US, where it was a goal for 37% of people who made resolutions for 2020. But it has been more popular in Britain overall, with 44% promising to lose weight at least once before.
But not all New Year’s resolutions are about health. Almost half of Americans that made resolutions promised to save money in 2020, and so have 31% of Brits at some time in the past. Popular resolutions in the US also include traveling more, learning a new skill and making more friends.
However, it’s important to remember that New Year’s resolutions can be difficult, and most people fail to achieve them.
To succeed, it helps to start with small changes instead of trying to do too much at once. For example, if you want to exercise more, try going to the gym just a few times a week instead of every day. Getting support from other people helps too, especially if they have the same resolutions as you.” – excerpted from Engoo.com
