How to Make and Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions in 2024

It was December 31, 2023. Jane was sitting on her couch, scrolling through her social media feed. She saw posts from her friends and family, sharing their highlights of the past year and their hopes for the next one. She felt a pang of envy as she compared her own life to theirs. She had not achieved any of the goals she had set for herself at the beginning of the year. She had wanted to lose weight, save money, learn a new skill, and travel more. But instead, she had spent most of her time procrastinating, overspending, binge-watching, and staying at home.

She decided that enough was enough. She closed her phone and grabbed a pen and a notebook. She wrote down her New Year’s resolutions for 2024, determined to make them happen this time. She felt a surge of optimism and excitement as she imagined how her life would change for the better. She vowed to stick to her plan and not give up.

But how many of us can relate to Jane’s story? How many of us have made New Year’s resolutions, only to break them within weeks or months? How many of us have felt frustrated and disappointed with ourselves for not following through on our promises? How many of us have wondered why it is so hard to change our habits and behaviors?
