Why most people set resolutions on New Years IMO.
Why do many people set new year resolutions. The reasons are listed below according to my own opinion.
1. New start
The new year brings a sense of new beginnings for most people. It presents an opportunity to start afresh.
2. Positive outlook
For many the previous year had a ton of challenges. The new year allows people to be positive about what it holds.
3. Keep score
It is easier to for many to keep score of their progress when they start on the 1st of Jan compared to say the middle of February.
4. Herd mentality
Majority of people use the start of an year to set their goals and intentions for the year. Some may be doing this just so they do not feel left out.
The motivation to change the state of one's life is highest aroung this time.
