Why is it so difficult to keep New Year’s resolutions?

Get more exercise, maintain a healthier diet, improve the way you manage your finances, stop smoking, use the car less... December is barely over and your list of New Year’s reso- lutions is as long as your arm!

Having two, three, four, or even five resolutions on your list is all very well on paper, but it’s not feasible in reality.

be surprised by the progress you’ve made. And don’t hesitate to ask for the support of your loved ones. Their love is an everlasting source of motivation!
