Although we all make our New Year’s Resolutions with the best intentions ready to take on the year ahead, our commitment often fizzles out, with 80% of people failing their New Year’s Resolution before February*.
The way that the majority of people phrase resolutions sets them up for failure. We can set goals that are too ambitious and when we reach a small hurdle we give up.
Setting unrealistic resolutions or goals that are too ambitious, sets you up for failure.
- Maybe instead of deciding to suddenly go vegan, maybe begin to limit your meat/dairy intake.
- Or instead of vowing to go to the gym every day, go three times a week.
- Want to give up all alcohol? Perhaps limit drinking to the weekend.
How many of us make resolutions?
40 to 45% make one or more resoltions per year.
How many of these resolutions are maintained overtime?
75% of people maintain their resolutions through the first week. 1 in 4th can't even make it past the first week! To end the year just 12% or 1 in 10 will achieve.
At Shepherds Friendly, we say, don’t just give up until next year. Instead, take a different approach to New Year’s Resolutions.
