What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?

January 01, 2014

Happy New Year from the Wellable Team!


We’ve had a great 2013 at Wellable and look forward to all the exciting things ahead in 2014.

For many Americans, January 1st presents an opportunity, the chance to improve ourselves.  It’s little surprise that some of the most common New Year’s resolutions are wellness related.  According to the Journal of Clinical Psychology, three of the top ten most common 2014 New Year’s resolutions are wellness-related, with losing weight taking the number one spot.  In fact, 38% of people who make resolutions make weight-related resolutions.

Unfortunately, only 8% of people are actually successful in achieving their New Year’s resolution.

What’s one way to help you achieve your wellness goal?  Make a resolution to form healthier habits this year. According to the study, people who explicitly make resolutions are ten times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.
