When you ask what 2018 resolutions will stick and which won’t, there is an actual psychology at the core. Dr. Bart Rossi, PhD. engaged in his thoughts with WINK News for their article “Why some New Year’s resolutions stick and others don’t”.
Dr. Rossi outlines why so many people fail to maintain their resolutions. “As a psychologist, I really don’t believe much in willpower,” he said. He tends to have more faith in changing ones behavior by altering the way they think. Moreover, he is a believer in positive thinking and sensible behavior.
Here is a list of the top 10 resolutions for 2017:
- Lose weight or healthier eating
- Life or self improvement
- Better financial decisions
- Quit smoking
- Do more exciting things
- Spend more time with family or close friends
- work out more often
- Learn something new on my own
- Do more good deeds for others
- Find the love of my life
According to surveys, 77% of people kept their resolutions for the first month or so, and then by the six month mark that number had dropped to 44%.
According to Dr. Rossi “Creating thoughtful habits and realistic “lifestyle changes” make a resolution a “good part of life, not a burden”.
