The New Year's resolution. A tradition that makes people feel motivated and inspired to be the best versions of themselves in the coming year. You feel committed to your promises the first week of January. But by February you lose a lot of steam, and by March you don't even remember what you resolved to do. Chances are, however, the signs you weren’t going to keep your New Year’s resolution were there all along.
If you're really hoping to make your New Year's resolution last this year, there are ways to set yourself up for success. If this really is going to be the year that you manage your stress, drink less alcohol and reach your goal weight, then more power to you. Set reasonable goals, chart out a schedule of achieving them, and come the start of 2017 you can feel like a superstar.
But many people aren’t so dedicated to the cause. Sure, you make the resolution because that's what everyone at the NYE party is chatting about, but you know in the back of your head that you're not going to put much effort into keeping it. If you're already thinking of ways to get out of staying true to your goal, chances are you're not even going to last through the end of the month, let alone the year. Here're some signs that you're definitely going to break your resolutions.
