    Do you still believe in New Year resolutions?

    Do you still make list or do you think it's just a waste of time?

    I tend to make New Year resolutions on my birthday, as that is the start of my new year.

    no, never made them. Lost the confidence of making new year resolutions because I never accomplish any of them

    I think giving ourselves the opportunity to start the new year with some goals and positive ideas for ourselves is always a good idea.  Do we stick with them? Well, most of the time no, but it is nice to have that energy and motivation to start the year with every year.

    New Year's resolutions are still a good idea even if some people don't follow through with them.  After all, it is an incentive to try and, with enough practice a person might eventually succeed.  Even partial success is a good thing.

    I think New Years resolutions are wonderful to make, but people become rather disenchanted when they make too many/unrealistic ones. "I'm going to become an astronaut and land on Mars!" for example, might be a little far-fetched. The key to a good resolution, I think, is small, achievable goals - and maybe a few big, exciting ones (and of course, small doesn't necessarily mean boring). Achievements have long been shown to immensely improve people's self esteem and happiness.

    I actually haven't really made a habit of doing them, but I think I'll start this year. They seem fun to do, if nothing else!
