Your New Year’s resolutions are only as good as their execution


We are still feeling a bit blue in the week after ‘Blue Monday’. After that day New Year’s resolutions fade quickly. According to research by Forbes, as many as 80% of people with good intentions for the New Year throw in the towel in the second week of February. So here is a blog to help you keep up the good spirit.

What does the other 20% do differently? What is their secret? Let’s look at what makes a New Year’s resolution successful and how you will achieve your goals this year.

The most made good intentions

How many times have you promised yourself that you would work on one of the classics below?

  • More sports
  • To lose weight
  • Get your life in order
  • Learning a new skill or hobby
  • Live life to the fullest!
  • Save more/spend less
  • Quit smoking
  • Spend more time with family and friends
  • More travel (someday…)

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the above good intentions. On the contrary, as far as we are concerned, you should not wait until January 1 to tackle them. By the way, did you know that it takes two to eight months to form a new habit?

Achievable and healthy New Year’s resolutions

If you want to start living healthier, you shouldn’t have to put a date on it. The flooding of gyms in the early months of the year shows that many people struggle with a consistent healthy relationship with diet and exercise. Quick fixes? Do not work.

Do you want to improve yourself and feel better, but don’t you want to focus on nutrition and diets? Then try one of these healthy resolutions:

  • Drink less alcohol
  • Sleep better
  • Recycle more
  • Eat fruit or vegetables with every meal
  • Meditate more often
  • No phone or TV while eating
  • Do something for a good cause every month
  • Working on your posture: laptop stand and stretches, anyone?
  • take vitamins
  • Drink more water and tea, less soft drinks
  • Picking up an old hobby again
  • Less online shopping
  • Trying to use as little plastic as possible
  • Flossing
