Top 10 Commonly Broken New Years Resolutions – Have You Broken Yours Yet?

By | Special Offers | No Comments

 

According to Time Magazine the top 10 most commonly broken New Years resolutions are:

  1. Lose Weight and Get Fit
  2. Quit Smoking
  3. Learn Something New
  4. Eat Healthier and Diet
  5. Get Out of Debt and Save Money
  6. Spend More Time with Family
  7. Travel to New Places
  8. Be Less Stressed
  9. Volunteer
  10. Drink Less

When you look at the list, number 1 and 4 both involve healthier eating and or dieting, so we are really only talking about 9 resolutions.

To make the top 10 broken resolutions, they first have to be fairly common resolutions, and why wouldn’t they be?

All of the resolutions listed above are a good idea right?

Lose weight, quit smoking, reduce debt, travel, reduce stress and travel – all good ideas.

But honestly, how many times have you resolved to lose weight, learn something new or get out of debt on January 1st only to have given up or forgotten all about the resolution by January 14th!

So why don’t your new years resolutions take?

Because it turns out in practice that none of these good ideas are all that easy to achieve!

People join gyms and go once or twice, don’t change their habits and accept that one cigarette from a mate while having a few drinks. We find that money is easier to spend than to earn (or to save), spending more time with the family sometimes increases our stress levels (depending on which members of the family you spend the extra time with) and who has time to travel?

So while we made the resolutions with all the good intentions we could muster at the time, we don’t always take the time to realistically plan the actions we need to take to actually achieve them.

For example:

Resolution 1

Step 1 – join a gym,
Step 2 – actually go more than once,
Step 3 – clear all the chocolate out of the pantry,
Step 4 – find a diet and fitness buddy.

Or

Resolution 2

Step 1 – call Deb on 1300 833 669 and make an appointment to Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes™,
Step 2 – go to the appointment and Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes™.

I encourage you to take the next couple of weeks to think about the decisions that you might make on New Years Day to improve your life, but don’t forget to take action as well!
