Leveling Up In 2024, Unleashing Your Best Self

New Year’s resolutions are a common practice. They are promises made to yourself to control habits or start doing better things at the beginning of the year. Many people make New Year’s resolutions but don’t follow through with them. Researchers say that up to 9% of people achieve their goal(s). 

Examples of New Year Resolutions are:

  • Eat more fruits
  • Drink more water
  • Exercise more
  • Get closer to God or another supreme being
  • Be more social
  • Read more books
  • Lower the usage of screen time
  • Be neater
  • Learn a new skill

New Year’s Resolutions have been around for 4,000 years. This act was made by Babylonians. They would make promises to their Gods and fulfill them by the end of the year. For them, the year started in March when crops were planted.
