It’s that time of year again: The beginning of a new year. All around you, people are talking about resolutions they will make to be healthier and happier. Sadly, most of those promises for self-improvement will quickly be a memory. Research shows that 80% of New Year’s resolutions are broken by the second week of February.

A Different Take on New Year’s Resolutions

We tend to set resolutions that punish us for the things we did the previous year. For instance, because we supposedly ate too much or gained weight over the holidays, we decide we’re going on a diet, we’re cutting out sugar, and we’re eating “clean.” We decide we’re going to lose 15 pounds by some arbitrary date.

Happy Saturday, sweet readers!

My intention for this week's Psychology Around the Net wasn't to get straight to the point; rather, I had a story I wanted to share. However, given the topic of several of this week's stories (you'll see), I've decided to keep it short and sweet and turn off this computer as soon as I can and head out for a white water rafting trip I've been both anxious and excited about all week.
