The New Year resolution it’s a setup for failure. 80 to 90% of. people will fail. it doesn’t matter how hard your new resolution is your brain takes up to 62 days to create a habit. Most people that try or do New Year’s resolutions give up in the first month.

But as most people know healthy habits also include diets like eating more greens or eating less sugar or less fast food. Those also are hard to because it depends on your lifestyle, for example, if you’re always busy and never has time to prepare yourself a freshly made dinner then how are you going to create time to do that if you’re busy.

Everybody has a hobby. Many people have hobbies but also many people want to try new things in the new year. For example, creating a new skill like hiking more or skiing, or reading more or riding a bike twice or three times a week. Hobbies create our life without our fun hobbies our life would be boring. Hobbies include sports or things you’re into. Without trying and experimenting with what you like you could be stuck on the same hobby over and over and over and it would be fun.
