Every year, many people make New Year’s Resolutions that they want to follow through for a better and healthier lifestyle but sometimes it only lasts for a week or two. Here are common resolutions that are often broken.

  1. Lose Weight/Go to the gym more often

Losing weight is on many people’s list, mostly because during Thanksgiving and Christmas we all eat way too much food.

  1. Eat healthier/Diet

This goes hand in hand with losing weight, after Thanksgiving and Christmas has passed, more people try to not go to McDonald’s or any fast food chain. They want to have more homemade food, but sometimes you get tired after a long day of school/work and buying pre-cooked food just seems a little simpler.

  1. Stop Procrastination

Almost everyone has this on your New Year’s Resolutions, whether it’s homework or cleaning your room, everyone tends to get too lazy and pushes it off.

  1. Save Money

There are many people who actually do save money, but there’s also the people who want to save money but once they see a new tech product or you see clothes you have to have, the money saving plan, is gone.

  1. “Think Less, Live More”

Many people write on their list to live life to the fullest and to not overthink and just do it. Although everyone should try, everyone seems to overthink on anything.

According to statistics, 40 percent Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions, 17 percent infrequently make resolutions, 35 percent never make resolutions and only 8 percent are successful in doing their resolutions.
