Healthy New Years Resolutions In Order of How Likely You Are To Keep Them

The year of our lord two thousand and thirteen is about to end and when we ring in two thousand and fourteen, the people of the Gregorian calendar will resolve to change themselves to mutate into better beings. They are engaging in a ritual we call “New Year’s Resolutions.” Some will succeed, but most will fail, er, well maybe not fail but totally forget they resolved to do anything and go back to their old ways.

Remembering Last Year's New Year's Resolutions Two Weeks Before 2014 Begins

I had about a week and a half for each of the remaining resolutions before the clock would strike midnight on New Years Eve and I would have again failed to become the best version of myself.

The 14 Types Of New Year’s Eve Dates (And What They Say About Your 2014)

The 14 Types Of New Year's Eve Dates (And What They Say About Your 2014)
