3 Foolproof Ways to Actually Follow Through With Your New Year's Resolutions This Year

 
 

A new year is upon us, and with that comes the opportunity for a fresh start — often in the form of a New Year’s resolution. 

Whether you’ve vowed this is the year you’ll finally start hitting the gym before work, or making your way through the unread books on your shelf, or breaking out that fancy kitchen gadget you hardly ever use, it’s common to use this time to commit to self-improvement. In fact, it’s generally reported that anywhere from 40 to 50 percent of Americans make resolutions each year with a goal of bettering themselves in some capacity.

But what’s not as common? Actually accomplishing that goal. Studies show that only 8% of those who make resolutions fulfill them, and many give up as early as February. This means that the chances of becoming the new and improved you that you envisioned might be easier said than done. 

So how can you set yourself up for success and become part of the 8% that crushes their New Year’s resolution? Check out my full story on Fairygodboss for three ways to hold yourself accountable and end the year a whole new you.
