The new year is among us! With it, comes a whole new set of people setting their New Year’s Resolution! It is set to try to improve certain aspects of a person’s life. These resolutions can include losing weight and stopping drinking pop. However, it is found that only around 9% of people will actually keep their resolutions for the whole year. The reason for this, is people set goals that are too difficult to achieve without some outside help. These goals are deemed too hard and most people just give up. The ideal resolution needs to be small and doable. For example, if you are trying to lose weight, set a small goal. When you do finally reach this goal, set another larger goal and work toward that. There is also the issue of setting a goal that is completely impossible to do healthily.  It is found that it takes around 21 days of doing something to form a habit, so people need to start with a small goal, create a habit of it, and continue the good habit in order to receive positive results.
