|The number one resolution for most people: lose weight|
There are a lot of people who simply refuse to make resolutions because they see it as an inevitable place for failure. They know themselves and know that eventually they'll succumb to temptation, so why make one at all? Thank goodness I'm on Twitter and I happened upon an AMAZING Wall Street Journal article by writer Sue Shellenbarger. She talks us through the means to make and keep a resolution. She even backs up her statements with scientific evidence! What I discovered- relying on your willpower is setting yourself up for failure. The only thing that truly and scientifically works: retraining your brain. Don't worry, it's not impossible. There's even a rewards system! Just stick to your guns, train your brain, and watch that resolution come true. Let's make 2011 the best it can be!!
