New Year Resolutions

2013 is almost ending and at the start we all (well… almost all!) of us made some resolutions for the year. Did you make any for this year ? Instead of resolutions, I tend to make a list of things I want to achieve in the year. That way, it doesn’t seem as forced and if I’m not able to tick them all off, they can just roll over until next year :)

This year, the list of things I wanted to achieve were pretty simple but rather affective, I ticked them all off my list. They involved:

  • be happy
  • get a pay rise
  • stop saying no
  • go out more
  • make new friends
  • take more chances

Next year? Well… I think I may just keep the same ones. What about you? What do you want to achieve in 2014? Do you stick to your resolutions? The infograph below gives you a little insight into how realistic or unrealistic our resolutions can be, do you agree with it? I’m surprised the weight related resolutions aren’t higher. After all, we do all gorge ourselves during the holiday season!

    I don’t know where you got the diagrams from but they’re really interesting actually! Mine last year was weight loss and I stuck to it (for once) so I was rather proud of myself :-) this year, it’s more about not worrying too much and enjoying life :-)

      I wish I could stick to weight loss ones lol I always think that this is going to be the year but then I lose motivation, hence no weight loss resolutions for me. Just need a kick up the butt! Hope you do end up enjoying life and not worry as much this year!
