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.
Learn a new language
Learning a new language is a good idea and this resolution ranks among those that quite a high percentage of people actually keep. Especially if they choose a language that is not that difficult to learn.
Have better sleep
Sleeping is a crucial factor affecting our physical as well as our mental well-being and it is well known that too many people have some kind of sleeping problem or disorder. Generally, doctors say we should sleep anywhere between 6 to 8 hours. Nevertheless, many find themselves sleeping far less.
Spend less time on Facebook
Sometimes a part of the procrastination, spending too much time on Facebook and other social networks is a considerable problem for surprising number of people these days. But even if they admit they have this issue, it can be very difficult for them to reduce the time spent on the site. For many of them, logging in and checking their friends activities is one of the first things they do every morning.
Spend less time watching TV
This resolution might be easier to keep now than it used to be but this statistic is misleading. The only reason why people are willing to cut their TV time is because they can watch the same things online or they just replace the time spent in front of the TV with hours wasted on websites (see #8).
Get rid of old clothes
The main problem with this resolution is that some people find themselves emotionally attached to clothes, especially their favorite, old pieces.
