Today is the first Sunday of a New Year! Perhaps you made a New Years resolution. Many of us do. Here is some interesting information about New Years resolutions from thee University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology, (Published: 12.13.2012)

The Top 10 New Years resolutions for 2012

1 Lose Weight

2 Getting Organized

3 Spend Less, Save More

4 Enjoy Life to the Fullest

5 Staying Fit and Healthy

6 Learn Something Exciting

7 Quit Smoking

8 Help Others in Their Dreams

9 Fall in Love

10 Spend More Time with Family

Percent of people who are successful in achieving their resolution 8%

Percent who have infrequent success 49%

Percent who never succeed and fail on their resolution each year 24%

I find the next two statistics interesting, especially because I turned 50 last year!

Percent of people in their twenties who achieve their resolution each year 39%

Percent of people over 50 who achieve their resolution each year 14%

So if you’re my age or older, the chances of keeping your resolution are much slimmer. Probably because the #1 resolution is losing weight, and that gets pretty tough the older you are.
