New Year, New Resolutions, New You!

At the end of each year, after the excessive eating, drinking and ‘let your hair down’ behaviour, many people go into a reflective period. Thinking over the year that has been, what they did, what they didn’t, and how the year to come is going to be different.

Today these intentions are called New Year’s Resolutions, however it is not just a modern day invention. The idea of making promises for the New Year is said to have started over 4000 years ago when the ancient Babylon’s would promise their gods repayment of their debts or objects they had borrowed.
If they kept their promises the gods would bestow a favour, if not the gods would be deeply unhappy.

 

 

Australians seem to be some of the worst at keeping their word. The national survey of 1,059 respondents found that 58% of Australians – an estimated 11 million people – broke their New Year’s resolutions this year, with women the more likely to break it (64%) compared to men (54%).
