New Year Resolutions to Improve Emotional Health
The goal of New Year’s resolutions is to improve a person’s quality of life, yet, strikingly they often ignore the one factor that determines our quality of life more than any other: our basic emotional health.
Instead, the majority of the resolutions made are related to diet and physical health.1
The most common are to lose weight, join a gym, quit smoking, and cut back on drinking.1
However, they are also the ones least likely to be completed.1
The second most common category of resolutions are related to our leisure time, or lack thereof, stating we wish to read more, go on a vacation, or work fewer hours.1 Then, there is the home improvement category such as cleaning the attic, the garage, or organizing and remodeling.1
