You might always make New Year resolutions or you might avoid them like the plague, but whatever your resolution preference have you thought about what New Year’s resolutions actually are, where did the notion come from and why do so many of us make them at the start of every year (and swiftly give them up by 19th January).
Where do New Year’s resolutions come from?
The origin of making resolutions at new year rests with the Babylonians, who reportedly made promises to the gods in hopes they’d earn good favour in the coming year.
What are they?
A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western World in which a person resolves to continue good practices, change an undesired trait or behaviour, accomplish a personal goal, or otherwise improve their life at the start of a new year.
In 2022, we’re taking a new stance on New Year’s resolutions. Join us and say #fckit to all the things society is telling us to change. Instead let’s live bigger, bolder and more adventurously. Now that’s a resolution we can get fully onboard with.
