NEW YEAR’S Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past and more importantly forward to the year ahead. It’s a time to reflect on the changes one wishes to have. With every New Year a majority of people resolve to improve their lives.
The resolutions may be about financial and personal health or professional and personal relationship. They wish to spend more time with family and friends, enjoy life to the fullest, stick to fitness regimen, quit habits like smoking and drinking, help others and get organised.
As the New Year provides the best opportunity for retrospection and change, people get tempted to run off a list of everything they ever wanted to change. And at the close of the year end up with achieving none of them. However, sticking to resolutions is difficult as people wish to see changes being made but efforts needed to bring about those
changes become difficult with the passage of time.
