We are in June! With that last flip of the calendar, we are officially halfway through 2019. It seems as if it was yesterday when we were clinking champagne glasses. Also, we were setting a long list of semi-unattainable New Year resolutions—most of which have probably fallen by the wayside.
How about you? How are your New Year resolutions holding up? Are you still religiously working on them? Could you make it even to the end of February? Or, they flee from your mind within 24 hours of counting down the new year? Do not worry, if you couldn’t make it. You are not the only one. According to the study of the University of Scranton, only 8% of people actually achieve their New Year resolutions.
No, no, no, don’t take me wrong. I am not going to make fun of you for not being able to stick to your new year resolutions from January 1st. In fact, I would make fun of you for making New Year Resolutions. Half Yearly Resolutions, Anyone with such Goals?

Half Yearly Resolutions, Anyone with such Goals?
Sounds weird? Well, this is not for that 8 % of you who set their new year resolutions and stick with it strongly. This is for people like me who set resolutions or goals on the 1st day of every new year and keep putting them on snooze. Hear me out loud. We can still conquer the now Half Yearly Resolution…No, I am not joking!
New Day Resolutions or Goals:
I have started setting the new day resolutions or goals so that I do not fret about the whole year. Instead…I just think whatever I aspire to do is just for a day. It’s really easy to command your mind just for one time.
I do things just once, that is just “Today“.
- It’s easy to act – just “Today“.
- It’s easy to be determined – just “Today“.
- It’s easy not to eat junk – just “Today“.
- It’s easy to wake up early – just “Today“.
- It’s easy to exercise – just “Today“.
- It’s easy to read – just “Today“.
- It’s easy to journal and reflect for 10 minutes that how I spent the day – just “Today“.
Every day is a new day. Hence, we can have New Day Resolutions every day, and not for a year or half year. I feel that the day we start living in just “Today“, we will have a “Happy Yesterday” and a “Promising Tomorrow“, that’s what we all are looking for.
