New Year’s resolutions can propel us to greater heights in the coming year. The New Year presents a special opportunity to consider the blessings and challenges of the past year and move forward with resolve to be a little bit better in the coming year.
The process of setting New Year’s resolutions dates back many years and is religious in its origins. The Babylonians made special vows to their gods at the beginning of the year. The Romans, too, made promises to the deity Janus. The month of January is named after the god Janus.
Today, the tradition continues. We may not accomplish all of our resolutions, but at least they nudge us forward. And studies show that goals are more likely to be achieved when they are written down, as we often do with New Year’s resolutions. The most popular New Year’s resolutions include staying fit, enjoying life, spending less money, and devoting more time to relationships.
