A yearly, worldy tradition every New Year is to come up with a list of resolutions, goals that shape us into better versions of ourselves. The plan to bring about positive change/s into our lives and hopefully carry this through the entire year or possibly even throughout our lifetime.
We’ve scoured the web and compiled the Top Ten Most Popular New Year’s Resolutions.

We can learn from different people from all walks of life, from children to the elderly, from the animals to our environment. We can also pick up a new hobby or skill. One should never stop learning.

SET ATTAINABLE GOALS
Creating realistic goals that can be met by the person prevents disappointments and boosts self esteem. Setting a goal too high could create the opposite effect than what is intended.
Every journey begins with a little step. Taking the initiative to take these steps moves us one step closer towards our goals everyday.
CHART YOUR PROGRESS
During the process of your journey, write down your results. Charting your progress can show you areas you have improved on and which areas need more work.
Comparing your progress to others can leave you feeling inadequate or overly confident. Check your progress chart, and you will be surprised how far you’ve come!
Surrounding yourself with people with common goals can help you improve. Groups share information, stories, provide support and can forge friendships.
There will be days when one loses motivation and that is okay. Resting is also vital to recovery, take the necessary steps to refocus and get back on track.
