No more false starts…

According to recent research, there’s a 1 in 4 chance that we will have given up on our New Year resolutions by the end of January. The study, from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, found that good planning and preparation were key factors in giving resolutions staying power. People who spent time laying the foundations for making changes in their lives had a success rate 40 per cent higher than those who simply set a goal – say, losing weight or ‘getting fit’ – and hoped for the best. Embarking on a new habit or lifestyle without preparing for the changes it involves is like setting out on a journey with no directions, map or sat nav – and without even bothering to check whether you have enough petrol to get there. Your chances of reaching your destination are much reduced – and the likelihood of getting lost or turning back much greater. So, if you started 2010 full of good intentions but haven’t yet done anything about them, don’t panic. Spend a little time planning and preparing how, where and when you’ll make those important changes happen – and then begin the journey to a new you! Happy New Year…
