90% Of New Year’s Resolutions Fail Within A Few Months

90% Of New Year’s Resolutions Fail Within A Few Months
Jan 1 2024 Share

Whether it’s fitness goals, new relationships or hobbies, setting New Year’s Resolutions is a very common phenomenon worldwide. 

Despite the air of hope and optimism, statistics reveal that over 90% of these resolutions face abandonment within a few months. 

Experts have various explanations for this trend, including the tendency to formulate resolutions around grand, all-encompassing changes, like altering eating habits or mastering a new language. 

Psychologists suggest that humans are not inherently inclined toward monumental shifts, making it challenging to adhere to such resolutions.

Approximately 50% of resolutions fail due to unrealistic goal-setting or ambiguity about desired outcomes. A recommended strategy is to establish smaller, more manageable goals, allowing for a gradual integration of sustainable changes rather than a radical life overhaul. 

Lack of clarity regarding the underlying reasons for change also contributes to resolution failures. Understanding the purpose behind a resolution, such as going to the gym for fitness or improved well-being, enhances the likelihood of success. 

Additionally, a crucial factor in resolution success lies in being psychologically prepared for change.  

Have you set any resolutions this year?

Over 160 Road Checks During Holidays On Maltese Roads
Jan 1 2024 Share

As many of us celebrated the beginning of 2024, the Malta Police Force was hard at work with inspections on Maltese roads to make sure that drivers were safe. 

The force reported that up until last night, over 160 road checks took place on our roads, with over 4,500 vehicles being stopped. 

During these inspections, 600 drivers were fined for violating traffic regulations. These included driving without a license, use of mobile phones, speeding, lack of seat belt use as well as illegal tinted windows. 

Thankfully, no accidents were reported on the first night of the year of 2024. No serious road accidents were even reported during the holidays.

The Malta Police Force, along with Transport Malta, will continue these inspections, but urged the public to continue to drive safe to avoid any accidents and tragedies.
