18 Jan Create habits instead of resolutions
According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, around 80 percent fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions, says US clinical psychologist Joseph Luciani.
Roughly 55 percent of New Year’s resolutions were health-related, such as exercising more and eating healthier according to the science journal The Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
Unrealistic expectations are a big reason resolutions failed.
If your goal is to lose weight or improve lifestyle habits, try not to make too many changes at once. Start with small changes and continue to build on these or try to tackle one change at a time. Set yourself goals, reflect on your progress, acknowledge that changes can be hard and that results won’t happen in the first few weeks of the New Year.
