If you didn’t keep your New Year’s resolutions, you’re not alone! Studies have found that only 8% of people keep their New Year’s resolutions.
The most common resolutions are losing weight, eating healthier, making better financial decisions, stopping smoking, and spending more time with family.
About 41% of people make New Year’s resolutions. By January 7th, 72% have kept their resolution. At six months, 44% are still keeping their resolution. However, by the end of the year, only 8% state that they kept the resolutions that they made.
However experts say it is still helpful to make resolutions, as people who make them are ultimately 10 times more likely to change their behavior! Experts also recommend not giving up if you miss a day or two, and also to reward yourself when you continue trying to meet your goals.
