New Year Resolution Failures
By Aditi Bhat
New Years are a wonderful time – there is a fresh, positive energy in the air encouraging you to become a better, efficient person. Perhaps all of us have made New Year resolutions at least once in our lifetime (now, whether we could stick to them or not is a different story altogether!).
If you have ever made a resolution and saw it dying a slow, painful death, fret not. You are not the only one. This infographic throws light on how most people ring in their New Year on an optimistic note, but the motivation fizzles out soon.
About 45% people make a resolution at the starting of the year. Close to 40% do not give it a thought. So what are the most popular resolutions and how far do people manage to stay committed to them? Self-improvement drives about 50% of people, who decide to work on themselves. Close to 40% of people intend to get healthy and lose weight while 34% aim to save more money. Love too plays a pivotal part here, with approximately 30% of people wanting to work on their relationships. That’s a great start, we will say!
However, it does not take long for motivation to slip through the back door! About 30% of people lose interest within a month, while the number comes crashing to about 50% by the sixth month!
So do New Year resolutions actually work? Have they worked for you? Share your experience with us in comments below:
