New Year’s Resolutions
2021 has ended, and there’s isn’t much to be missed… We can only hope for a different 2022 and there’s one thing we never forget to do, a list of our New Year’s Resolutions!
One way or the other we’ve all thought of our resolutions, either just for fun or because we really believe in it, we all have that one thing we want to change and we hope that a New Year’s wish will make it real.
A New Year's resolution is a tradition, most common in the West, in which a person makes a pledge to do an act of self-improvement or something nice to others, starting on New Year's Day.
The religious origins go back to the Babylonians who promised to their Gods at the start of each year that they would return with borrowed objects and would pay their debts. Traces of this tradition can also be found in the Roman era where, when each year began, Romans made promises to the God Janus, after whom the month of January was named.
Some of the most common resolutions or goals include donations to the poor, become more self-confident, or become more environmentally aware.
But others are even more popular and personal. The weight lost involving healthier eating habits and exercising more are usually on top of the list. Health and prosperity for us and our family are also one the most desired things for a brand-new year. To get a new job or to start your own business, the one you have always dreamed of… Mindfulness and personal development are always on one’s mind. And don’t you forget one of the most up-to-date and selfless wishes of all: Health and Peace for the entire World!
