Most resolutions dont work because they're not specific enough. For example, "losing weight" almost never works because it's too general. Instead, a clearly-defined resolution to walk 500 steps a day and/or to limit daily calories to 1200 calories offer a better chance at success.

Some of aslowdodge's resolutions (especially #1, 2, 3 and 4) are good examples of definite resolutions.

My New Year's resolution is to be more appreciative of the good things in my life by thinking, every evening when i go to bed, of 3 blessings for which I'm grateful and to saying, out loud, how grateful I am for each one.

to let things go, not to hold a grudge or ruminate over how I could have handled things differently.


I started early It's not going to be easy.

For real.....I resolved to make NO more resolutions! I don't know of anyone who keeps them. Certainly not me!

Be healthier in general, get exercise daily and show gratitude more often. If I can do that other things will follow.

Can't recall the last time I stayed up to watch the ball drop so that is my resolution, and with 3 minutes to go I am pretty sure I am going to be successful in keeping it.

All have a great 2017!!!!

Reduce my sugar intake and increase my fiber intake. Get back to doing yoga.

Last year's resolution was to get my financial house in order and I did that by studying it every day and taking the necessary steps. Here's to hoping I can be successful again this year by doing the same.

I am planning a very fiscally responsible 2017. Had a lot of expenses and home improvements in 2016 which was money well spent. This year, I plan to save as much as possible.

Agreed. You know the classic saying: "A goal without a plan is just a wish."
