For those who make New Year's resolutions, exercising more and losing weight are often at the top of the list, but whether your goals are to improve your health, save money or travel more, it can be hard to actually keep the resolutions you've chosen. So what causes some people to fail year after year when it comes to making resolutions, while others are successful?
Only 21 percent of people made resolutions. Of those who made resolutions, 41 percent said they stuck with them. This is where things get interesting: 24 percent of women reported setting resolutions, compared to 18 percent of men. But while women were more likely to set new year goals, men were significantly better at sticking to theirs, especially as they grew older. 51.5 percent of men met their goals, compared to 42.6 percent of women meeting theirs.
No matter your individual goal, it's important to remember that over 80 percent of people who make New Year's resolutions drop them by February—and will completely forget about them by the end of the year.
If you're set on being in the 21 percent, it can help to join up with others on a similar mission for support along the way. And when you're feeling like giving up, remind yourself how to stick to your resolutions when failure seems imminent.
