What are the benefits of making New Year’s resolutions?
There are at least four different key potential benefits of making New Year’s resolutions:
Sense of achievement
New Year’s resolutions can motivate us—or can keep us motivated—to take action and to take control of our lives.
We are the ones in charge of our lives. We have the power to change them. It is great to acknowledge that.
When this is happening, we can experience a great sense of achievement that fuels additional motivation and the will to keep going.
When this mechanism is working, our confidence level will skyrocket, as will our self-esteem.
The science of New Year’s resolutions and willpower is coming next, stay tuned 😉
