Reasons Why People Give Up On New Year’s Resolution

Have you set yourself a New Year’s Health Resolution?

A survey conducted with a reach of 4,000 people and found that 43% of people expect to give up their goal after just one month.

Research shows that 95% of New Year’s Resolutions are fitness related, but after just 3 months, only 10% of people think their resolution will last and here are some of the reasons why.

Going Solo: Many of us set our health goals and then try to achieve them alone. We won’t tell anyone what we’re working towards in fear of failure. In fact, we need to think more – strength in numbers, by sharing our goals with others we are more likely to succeed.

Not tracking progress: One of the primary reasons why people give up on their resolution is because they don’t track their progress. How can you expect to accomplish something if you don’t even know how close you are to getting there?

Expecting immediate results: Resolutions are meant to be a long term process. Don’t treat a marathon like a sprint. That’s why it’s important to set smaller goals along the way. Significant results take time.

No Motivation: Motivation might be what gets your started, but it fades away too soon. So you need to use that initial motivation to create habits that will keep you going forward and help you in achieving your goals.

Not enjoying the process: Keeping up with the resolution should not add stress to your daily life. Rather it should help you in getting rid of that stress. Make the process of you keeping up with the resolution as fun as possible. Join a class, do it in a group or involve your ‘confidant’ along in the process and enjoy doing it.

So, if there’s a reason why you really want to achieve your new year’s health resolution goal, don’t wait. Just start making plans for it.
