The end of a year is not just a time that we spend partying, drinking and having fun with our friends and families. For almost a half of people all over the world, it is also a while when they evaluate what they have done during the year and what they should change in the upcoming year. In the U.S., 45% of people make New Year resolutions. To see what the most common resolutions are and why it can be so difficult to actually keep them, check out today´s post dedicated to the most common New Year resolutions.
Get out of debt
Paying off debts is a popular resolution that many have difficulty accomplishing. Keeping this resolution often requires a major reduction of people´s comfort and conventional habits which is something many people don’t want to give up.
Improving finances is a resolution that about 14% of people make every year. These days, as much as a third of all Americans have no saving so let’s hope the resolutions for 2015 will improve that number.
Sometimes included in the weight loss resolution, healthier eating is another praiseworthy vow we often make. Keeping it can be particularly difficult because many people have absolutely wrong and unsuitable diet and eating habits. Increasing the daily amount of fruit and veggies is a good start.
Time management and better organization is another important thing many people wish to improve and New Year is a great opportunity to start working on it. An average office employee spends 1.5 hours a day (6 weeks per year) looking for things so better organization can help you save time for other activities.
Spend more time with family
If you manage to keep the previous resolution, it might be easier for you to follow this one as well. The beginning of the year is also an ideal time to spend more time with kids or reconnect with family that you haven’t seen in a while. Unfortunately, people tend to get back to their working routine soon with only small numbers of those who can maintain the goal throughout the whole year.
