New Year, new me, right? At least that’s what millions of Americans across the nation say once the new year rolls along. And with every new year comes the dreaded new year resolutions. These new year resolutions are made with a good heart but can often lead to more harm than good. It’s said that less than five percent of Americans actually hold through on their new year’s resolutions. What seems to be the problem is that these resolutions are meant to last such a long time that not many people can handle the how long term it actually can be. This can lead to those certain people feeling worse about themselves than how they started off. Here are 52 “mini” resolutions, a new one for every week of the year, that will not only give you a good sense of accomplishment but may have the potential to turn into a lifelong habit.
