7 Reasons You Shouldn’t Make A New Year’s Resolution This Year

As unbelievable as it sounds, a month from now we will be in the year 2017. Weird, right? Just typing the numbers “2017” feels wrong and anxiety-inducing. Where has the time GONE? It seems like just yesterday we were prepping for the “end of the world” in 2012, and yet here we are, still alive, barely surviving everything that happened in 2016. It’s times like these when I begin to worry about all of the hopeful people who are planning their 2017 resolutions. I am here to tell you that you need to stop making those New Year’s resolutions. Like, now.

I know I sound dramatic, but hear me out! I get the appeal of the whole “new year, new me” thing, but there are actually a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t be making resolutions for January. I know, I know, you want to start off 2017 with a brand new mind set and a “ready to take on the world” attitude. Great! The thing is, it rarely works for most people. And honestly, you shouldn’t feel the need to change your entire lifestyle just because we are entering yet another year of existing. You have your whole life to do new things, and setting goals for yourself for the year can be a little overwhelming, especially if you don’t end up achieving them. So, if you’ve been debating on what your 2017 goals will be, check out these reasons why you actually shouldn’t make a resolution, and start thinking really hard about what you actually want to do.
