Why Do You Make New Year’s Resolutions?

Every year on New Year’s day people all over the world celebrate by making New Year’s resolutions. Why do we wait until the new year to make a resolution? There is no better time for a change than the present.

What do you do if it’s March and you think you need to get in better shape, or drink more water, or eat healthier? Do you wait the rest year in order to make a change? Or do you decide to just get up and do it with no other motivation?

Is the new year itself just the motivation to make the changes in your life and nothing else? Would you still be making these changes even if it were not the new year? I’m not really sure myself.

I am not normally the kind of person to make a New Year’s resolution. This is probably because I don’t want to be held accountable and I am probably trying to secretly avoid potential failure.

This year I decided to go ahead and make a resolution. My resolution is simple, to enjoy every day and be happy for what I have not for what I don’t. Did you make a New Year’s resolution? If you did, what did you chose and why?
