Let’s be real, New Year’s Day is pretty terrible. You scroll through social media and see everyone talking about their achievements over the last year, or how they will achieve their goal of #newyearnewme. Meanwhile, you have a stinking hangover and can’t achieve using the microwave.
But at least there’s the annual New Year’s Eve special of The Graham Norton Show from the night before, just sitting there on iPlayer to cheer you up. If nothing else, at least you aren’t that person getting yanked off the red chair for wasting their opportunity on a really boring story.
New Year’s resolutions are the perfect opportunity for all those who have failed to start making the changes that they said they would make next week, next month, next year. Personally, for me, I never BY LOUISE RICHARDSON stick to them so I have given up even thinking about it, I would hope I could give up my one love… chocolate, my willpower definitely takes over. Maybe I should try making my resolutions a bit more realistic so I can stick to it.
Do you make new year resolutions? If you do, do Yay or Nay? you stick to most of them? Why do you make them?
Or are you one of these people (like me) who makes new year’s resolutions knowing you’re not going to stick to it and lie to yourself about making lifestyle changes? It’s such a vicious circle, I don’t know why we do it to ourselves!
