Are you someone who commits to New Year resolutions, and falls short of sticking to them? Don’t worry, most of us are. While the most common resolutions include eating healthy, losing weight, changing jobs, quitting smoking, and learning a new instrument or skill. We all know how overwhelming resolutions can be. “New Year resolutions can themselves cause a feeling of being overwhelmed if you set yourselves really complex and unrealistic goals. We often start feeling like failures in a month or so if we are not able to stick to our New Year resolutions. What we sometimes do not realise is that we are not able to stick to our resolutions but that we need to make New Year goals that are actionable and achievable,” explains Dr. Sapna Bangar, psychiatrist and head, Mpower - The Centre, Mumbai.
