Stay Away From These Common New Year's Resolution Mistakes

The vast majority of New Year's resolutions aren't made to be followed, no matter what we convince ourselves. The promise that next year will be a little better if you work hard is intriguing enough to overlook how infrequently it occurs.

Poor goal-setting is one of the most common reasons New Year's resolutions fail. Consider the traditional resolutions associated with a "new year, new me" mindset: Lose a lot of weight, start going to the gym regularly, stick to a strict diet, change jobs, save or earn a lot more money, and often, all of the above. Taking on any or all of these goals simultaneously is essentially asking oneself to transform into a different person in a year—not it's technically impossible. Still, it's neither feasible nor healthy. If you're serious about keeping your New Year's resolutions this year, you should understand what makes a promise to yourself unattainable.
