The two most common New Year’s resolution is to quit smoking and to get fit, according to Post Journal on Jan.1st. Most people do make resolutions each year, only a small percentage of these goals are ever accomplished. Many people forget about these resolutions by February.
Losing weight or to exercise more is one of the most common resolutions. Let’s face it; most people can stand to lose a few pounds. And, those who can't can probably exercise more. This is what makes this one of the most common goals for the year. One of the most common reasons this goal is not met is scheduling. People often get busy working or with family life, and working out takes a back seat. The truth is, if losing weight or getting fit is not a priority, you will always find an excuse not to find time for it.
The decision to quit smoking is a very popular resolution. Not many smokers can say they love to smoke, 70 percent wished they could find the strength to quit. Many are smokers because they are overwhelmed with how to stop. It should not be done overnight and can take quite a while, often with several relapses. According to a Press release by Southern Tier Health Care, nearly 45 percent of smokers make quitting their New Year’s resolution, with only 8 percent being successful. The reason is simple, addiction is hard to beat. It takes patience, time, and dedication to quit smoking once and for all.
