As we head into 2023, millions of people will set a New Year’s resolution. Whether it’s to make more money, spend more quality time with your family, or improve your health, it’s likely you will fail. A majority of Americans have given up on their New Year’s resolution by January 12. That’s less than two weeks! Only eight percent achieve their New Year’s resolution. There are two common problems with resolutions that set you up for failure. One, you make a vague goal, like to exercise more. Make it specific, like “Perform 30 minutes of exercise each day.” And two, don’t make your goal a negative, like “I’m not going to drink alcohol.” Instead, focus on something positive that accomplishes the same goal. “I’m going to drink water with every meal.”
