What is Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution Day?
Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution Day is a special day that celebrates sticking to your New Year’s goals. It is a far cry from Ditch New Years Resolutions Day which falls later in the month.
The Times Tribune claims that 80% of people have failed their new year’s resolutions by the start of February and only 8% of people keep them all year long.
Let Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions Day refresh your dedication to keeping your resolutions for the New Year!
January 12 national day
Since Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions Day is all about New Year’s plans and goals, it makes sense that this day occurs in the beginning of the year.

3 New Year’s resolution tips
In honor of Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution Day, I want to share my top 3 New Year’s resolution tips that will actually help you stick to your New Year’s goals!
#1 – Accountability. If you know you have a hard time being accountable to yourself, share your resolutions with a trusted friend, and ask them to check in with you about it.
#2 – Make a plan. I’m sure you’ve heard Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s famous quote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. It’s very true. Look at your goals and see how you can make a plan of action to achieve them.
#3 – Keep track of your progress. Sometimes it can be daunting to have a lot of big goals with seemingly no end in sight. Keep a resolutions journal where you write down the progress you’ve made!
