A last minute, New Year's Eve reminder to those of you who insist on making resolutions for the New Year: Make them achievable. We offered some suggestions on Wednesday, taking some inspiration from Woody Guthrie's list of resolutions for 1943 (as seen above), which include "Stay Glad" and "Take A Bath."
A behavioral health doctor gave ABC News some reasons why resolutions fail, including people making too many—focusing one thing helps—and people expecting a magical change ("Most people try to quit smoking and fail six or seven times before they quit. Looking at your life magically on January 1st doesn’t make it all go away. Find things that you’ll be able to do in the context of your life").
