Share Your New Year Resolutions

There is no perfect time to take a resolution, but we all tend to take some kind of resolutions during this period.  Mostly they turn out to be like drunken uncles which are not be taken seriously.  But still we continue to.

Many make a resolution to impress others, some do it to quit their bad habits and some do it for professional/ personal growth.

A quick look at the origin of New Year Resolutions.

Some 4,000 years ago, Babylonians, ancient Akkadian-speaking Semitic community. celebrated their new year with an 11-day festival in March,  It was the Babylonians who initiated the trend, who reportedly made promises to the gods in hopes they’d earn good favour in the coming year. They made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts.

What we continue to do today is also something similar, striving to be better by making some resolutions.

Some of the most common resolutions we take:

Lose Weight, being Fit and Healthy

Getting Organized

Spend Less, Save More

Enjoy Life to the Fullest

Learn Something Exciting

Quit Smoking

Spend More Time with Family

I am sure most of you all would have taken some resolutions in the past year and will continue to do in the year to come. So let us end the year on a happier note, Please share the New year resolutions you had taken in 2015 in the Comments section below, even if they are weird and crazy, like the one below
