New Year's resolutions

"A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other." Anonymous

This quote basically sums up my attitude towards New Year's resolutions. When I was a teenager I used to write my list every 31st of December, not that I ever took a second glance at it later in the year. Today my outlook on life is better described by a "Enjoy it while it lasts" motto. However, I thought I'd share some fast facts about New Year's resolutions that I found on the web:

People make more resolutions to start a new habit than to break an old one.
It takes doing something 21 times in order to make it a habit.

63% of people say they are keeping their resolutions after two months
67% of people make three or more resolutions

Top four resolutions:
Increase exercise
Develop better eating habits
Stop smoking, drinking, or using drugs (including caffeine)
Be more conscientious about work or school

If I HAD to decide on one resolution it would be to be more patient. As for my excercise and eating habits, they are not brilliant but good enough in my consideration. Who can say no to Swiss chocolate?!? As far as drinking goes, a good glass of wine with a Mediterranean meal is an absolute must. I don't smoke or do drugs and I do NOT consider delicious Italian coffee a drug!!! Consciencious???? What ever happend to spontaneity????

Wishing you a Happy New Year and may all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions!
