New Year’s resolutions are usually damned and not always fulfilled. This is just how it works

It’s New Year’s Eve and your New Year’s baggage is full of resolutions that you really couldn’t follow through during the last year. After all, Corona threw a spanner in the works and hopefully everything will be better in the new year. According to a survey by the statistics platform Statista, the top resolutions again this year are “eat healthier” with 52 percent of respondents, “exercise more” with 47 percent and “lose weight” with 38 percent. Behind them come “spend more time with family/friends” and “live more frugally” with 36 percent.

Is your resolution one of them? Then good luck and don’t give up, because every year an average of about two-thirds of all resolutions are not carried out. The fact that most of the good intentions for the coming year fail is not due to the goal in general. As is so often the case, the problem lies in the details. Here are five hints on how you can safely cross your New Year’s resolutions off your to-do list next New Year’s Eve.
