New Year's Resolutions. Are they really a good idea?

Oh New Years… The start of a new year, a fresh start, a time to really start living life…right?  The truth is, I used to make New Years Resolutions. They typically involved things like ‘see my friends more’, ‘work harder’, or ‘eat less sugar’.  The most common resolutions Americans make are to lose weight, eat healthier, and make more money. I would like to propose something new for you to try this year; NOT making any resolutions. I am not saying that it is wrong of you to want to make your life better. If you are overweight and it is causing health problems then I applaud you for wanting to lose weight to be healthier. If you believe making more money will help you live a happier life then that is great to have this as a goal.
