IT’S RESOLUTION QUITTING SEASON, CONSIDER A DIFFERENT APPROACH
We are approaching the end of January, which is commonly known as resolution quitting season. We will begin to see the first of New Year’s Resolution begin to falter. It’s inevitable, according to the Kelsey Mulver of Business Insider, 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by February, and Carolyn Gregoire from HuffPost cited a common statistic of 8 percent of people keep their New Year’s resolutions. This year don’t fall victim to one of these statistics. Unfortunately, many people make lofty goals, especially when it comes to finances and getting in shape. A wise approach to righting the ship, so to speak, is to restructure your goals as opposed to quitting. So instead of your resolution to work out five days a week (which this is more than your total amount of workouts for all of 2017), maybe this year, you set a goal to lose 25lbs instead. New Year’s resolutions should be marathons, not races. Its ok to slow down and re-evaluate to get back on track. Take a pause, downshift or modify your resolution, but don’t quit.
