Sticking to our New Years resolutions

20th January 2021
Posted by Aston Avery

A new YouGov survey has revealed that 8 in 10 adults intend to modify their lifestyle in 2021, with 7 in 10 planning to make healthier lifestyle choices due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 40% aim to eat more healthily, 39% want to lose weight and 41% are planning to exercise more.

However, research has shown that 80% of New Year’s Resolutions like this are destined to fail by the first week in February.  Not tracking our progress can be a huge influencing factor in our failings. However, studies show that writing down goals and aspirations make us more likely to succeed. In fact, Brits are 42% more likely to accomplish goals that are write down on a daily basis, but only 20% of us take the time to do so. Writing down goals creates a sense of urgency and moves us closer toward achieving them.

Aston spoke to Mo Seetubtim, CEO of The Happiness Planner to discuss about the power of writing our thoughts, successes & failures down.
