Will you be making a New Years resolution for 2015?

Print Friendly

Most of us will make a New Year’s resolution – maybe to lose weight, quit smoking or drink less – but only one in 10 of us will achieve our goal.

The New Year is a time to reflect on the changes we want or need to make. Do you usually make a new years resolution?  Will you be making one this year?  What strategies will you put in place to ensure you stick to it? Or do you not believe in making a New Years resolution?

In my life I have only ever made 2 years resolutions the first was 12 years ago was to give up smoking and I did then the second was four years ago was to lose weight which I did . I thought long and hard this year as I don't make them lightly I am now 52 so this year I decided it's not going to be about me it's going to be about other people so I have chosen to be a gift giver but the gifts are what I have made myself so far this year I have already given 2 gifts they are only small gifts but it makes me happy and shows you care so I am planning ahead and going to give all my family and friends gifts throughout the year not on their birthdays just odd days in the year with a little message I love you thank you for being in my life xxxxxxx

I would like to give myself a bit more "me time" at times we all need a little quiet time for reflection and to recharge our batteries. Also I need to concentrate on losing some weight to help with my arthritis.

I always try and set myself a New Years Resolution to have a drink free January but it has never worked out. I drink about 2 bottles of wine a week and a couple of pints which is not a lot but it would be good to try and stop for a while.

I actually like setting myself NY resolutions. It gives me focus for the months ahead and I do tend to achieve most of them
