Did you know last Monday was blue Monday, the day 43% of people are likely to have broken their New Year’s Resolutions, did you break yours? Did you set you yourself any?
A poll of 1,000 people by James Villas showed that out of the 58% of people who set New Year’s Resolutions, 80% expect to fail, with a staggering 5% not even lasting 24 hours.
The survey showed weight loss proved to be the most difficult resolution to keep with 31.3% failing to meet their target and lack of willpower being the main cause for failure.
I love the quote below, and I have tried this year to not make resolutions as such, but set myself small challenges, challenges I can actually complete that will make me feel better about myself.
“Make realistic attainable goals… Envision a better tomorrow… Tell a new story”

A quarter of the people surveyed said they wanted to travel more, this is definitely one of my aims for the next year, I’d love to take the kids to on lots of adventures.
