At the turn of the year , big-name intentions are made – which then get lost in the sand after a few weeks. No one can hear this anymore.
Every year – not only the Christ child comes. Many people review the past twelve months at the end of the year and are preparing for the new year. But often it is the same intentions as the year before, and before that … This can save everyone here!
“I stop smoking!”
The classic of many smokers to New Year ! Smile diligently on New Year’s Eve – as a fitting conclusion, so to speak – and then from January 1 onwards no longer touch the stinking stalks. Easily said, hard done. Often the smoke-free time at the beginning of the year lasts only a few weeks or even days. Anyone who wants to stop smoking, must be convinced. The date should not matter.
“I do more sports !”
At many, the bad conscience gnaws at the end of the year. The balance makes clear: too little movement. That’s about to change in January. Not infrequently, in the first weeks of the new year, for example, gyms in major cities are overrun. But after a few weeks, the rush will ease again. Everyday life has returned. If you want to be more athletic, should set a long term plan, not rush to act at the turn of the year .
“I’m breaking social media!”
In the digital age, this intent is becoming more popular! Not very few people are fed up with social networks like Facebook, Instagram and co. Too much data is revealed, too much advertising appears in the timelines. But how many friends really dare to delete their accounts? “Spying” via social media is just kind of fun. Maybe try a Digital Diet Detox instead of a Radical Diet? Do not consciously pick up the phone every five minutes, log out of the social media accounts on the phone, or even uninstall the apps for a week. That can be liberating!
