New Year Resolutions

The tradition of new year resolutions began in the early years of Babylonians where they celebrated the first new moon which took place on the first day of spring. However, in 46 BC Julius Caesar established a seasonal calender which established January 1 as the beginning of a new year. 

New Year Resolutions
New year resolutions are made by individuals who make commitments to themselves to form a new lifestyle change or to reform a habit. New year resolutions are either fulfilled or abandoned before the end of the year. 

The end of the year is the best time to reflect on past events which have taken place throughout the year. Now it's a few weeks before new year we all decide to change something so that we can welcome ourselves into a fresh new start. However do we really need to put all this pressure on us to change, why do we want to change when a year ends instead of when we feel the need to change. 

Here's some questions...

Do you make new year resolutions?
How long do they last before you abandon them?
Have you had success when committing to the new changes you've made?
What does the new year mean to you?
