Ditch New Years Resolutions Day is observed on January 17, 2017. It's a day to brake or give up all of those New Year's resolutions you made two weeks ago on New Year's Days. But think about it: is it easier to slip back into old habits, or is it better to hold on your New Year's resolutions? You can get it if you want it!
A New Year's resolution is a secular tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year's Day. Some examples include resolutions to donate to the poor more often, to become more assertive, or to become more environmentally responsible.
A study involving 3,000 people showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study's participants were confident of success at the beginning. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.
