It’s time for New Year’s resolutions
At this time of year, it is not unusual to hear about people making resolutions for the year ahead.
Once again, it appears that sorting our health and finances top our New Year’s resolutions.
Some research we saw today from comparison site Gocompare.com shows that whilst 27 million people will make resolutions, 41% of these will not make it past the end of January.
The research found that losing weight, taking more exercise and sorting out the finances were top priorities for 2010.
Here at Informed Choice, we might not be able to help you with the first two goals, but when it comes to sorting out the finances we can certainly ensure you stick to this resolution for longer than one month!
In a poll of over 1,500 Britons it was found that 56% are planning to make resolutions. Losing weight is the biggest resolution this year, with 45% of those making resolutions saying this was their aim. Nearly a quarter of us are vowing to find a new job in 2010.
If you are making resolutions for 2010 but fear you lack the resolve or commitment needed to see things through, this post from Leo Babauta at Zen Habits is worth reading:
