Its a long standing tradition to start anew at this time of year. the winter solstice has long been a celebration of rebirth and the coming of the summer months. This means new things on the horizon. I sorta have a new years resolution but it started a month ago.

Thank you very much! I understand your point though just starting something because it is the new years is pointless. You have to be dedicated and really want to do something to make it happen. I really need to shape up. I have terrible heart burn.... were talking can't eat for a couple days it hurts so much heartburn... I'm at risk for diabetes. I can't go up stairs without being out of breathe... I'm over weight too. and have back problems

No because I need to start the new year off with a goal or goals in mind to work at, to strive on, so that I can get through January with a good plan, it may not succeed, but sometimes the fun is just as rewarding. I suppose resolutions could in actual fact be made any time of the year, doesn't have to be January 1st. Why wait? If we want to improve ourselves or do something different, adventurous why wait, why not do it like tomorrow, 31st December or 24th July! We have to set ourselves small targets, otherwise if they are unreachable we get dispondent, depressed and give up quicker. Rome wasn't built in a day as they say. Little steps make bigger milestones.

Well said Wolfie.That is my point too.No problem in having a New Year resolution.But it has become a fad and lost it's seriousness in most cases.

Trust Balasriji to come up with some topic like this one. Anyways, great minds think alike! I generally don't make a New Year resolution. I make one as and when needed and stick to it. I don't wait for a special occassion to make a resolution. I don't see the point of making a resolution for the sake of making one and then not being able to stick to it 2 months down the line.

Yes, we can definitely go without one and I usually do. But, this year I think that I will be forced to my a couple of them at least. I think that the New Year or your birthday is a great time for starting over fresh. If God blesses us to see another year, we should do some work on improving ourselves. Another things is that during the holidays people tend to stuff themselves and feel guilty. The new year is when all of the celebrating stops and things go back to normal. Then people are in a race to get that holiday weight off by summer, so they promise themselves that they will do it around that time. Of course this is just my own little ol' opinion. The real reasons for the resolutions could be something entirely different. This is one of the main reasons in America though.

Making resolutions are great as long as they are observed or tried to be observed at least.

Hi friend,i think i can't do without a new year resolution.as we know if we not guidelines to do some matter maybe so difficult to success.if you have resolution you already know what do you want or target for this year.so you can know whether you succesful to gain your target or not.

I don't have my new years resolution this year. I mean, I have one and that is t loose 10kg in the next 3 months but it's not a real resolution because I decided that about a month ago but couldn't start my diet before 1th January 2008 because of all the delicious food we had this holidays. So it had to be a N.Y. resolution although it wasn't meant to be one.

I see New Year's Resolutions and the coming of the new year as a time to set aside the hustle and bustle of day to day life and reflect on the past year. Appreciating the good, and figuring out how to change the bad so it doesn't recur. Often that is where resolutions come in, though I prefer to think of them simply as plans.

Its like something to start with in our life, to know where we are in our stage of life, if are fully success or we need something to change, we just pointing out what else we need to improve or change or enhance in our life...
