Have You Been Keeping Up With Your New Years Resolutions? [INFOGRAPHIC]

We have exactly ten more days of January, our “clean slate” month. How have you been doing on your New Years Resolutions? Have you already forgotten all about your goal to exercise 4 times a week or eat healthier? If so, you’re far from alone. A new infographic reveals that 22 percent of people drop their New Years Resolutions by the first week of January, and the tenth of the month is the most common day for people to scrap their resolutions entirely. Sixty percent of people totally give up six months in, and less than twenty percent actually follow through with the resolutions. Even sadder is the fact that 52 percent of people actually think they’ll fulfill their goals. Cheers to wishful thinking? Seasonal Affective Disorder could have something to do with the failure rate though, as longer nights can de-motivate and depress people.
How’s that for an afternoon pick-me-up on your day off work? The good news is that you still have time to get back in the game. Be aware of how tough it is to prioritize personal goals, accept that maybe you’re not doing as well as you would have hoped, and set out to achieve what you’ve forgotten about. Better late than never! Check out the full infographic below.
