New Years resolutions are a great idea, but in reality, very few people stick to their New Years resolutions. It's nice to have goals, but sticking to a strict new plan just isn't realistic. Studies show that 80% of people ditch their resolutions before the year ends, usually within the first few weeks of the year. The truth is, by the 17th you've gotten back to your busy life, and you probably don't have time to worry about goals you set a the beginning of the year. This is the time to ditch those resolutions without guilt. Go ahead, let it go.
