Here it is 2014 and it is the time when we make our New Years Resolutions. Apparently 41% of Americans make resolutions. This is not a new thing. “Babylonians began that custom. Vows to the god Janus were common in Roman times (vows were made in January, a month named after that god), and making a peacock vow concluded Medieval knights’ days of Christmas.”

But how many people really keep their resolutions? Only 46 percent are still going strong at 6 months and only 19 percent at a year.
Here are 10 resolutions that are often in the top 10
1. Loose weight, eat better and exercise more (Mine is 10 pounds by mid February)
2. Stop smoking
3. Drink less
4. Improve your financial situation
5. Get a better job
6. Get organized and stop procrastinating
7. Manage your stress
8. Fall in love
9. Find time for yourself
But I need to ask an 11th – Volunteer
I imagine that most of you have a list. What do you think are the top 10 resolutions for 2014 and have you made a resolution?
