With only a few days left of the year, many of us are contemplating that age-old question: ‘what’s my New Years resolution?’ If you are like most people, yours will most likely revolve around eating better, exercising more, improving your career, cutting down on stress or spending more time doing what really matters to you (like hanging out with family and friends). Regardless, chances are you will need help when it comes to sticking to your goals.
Research shows that even though 52% of participants were confident in their ability to achieve success with their goals, only 12% actually did. Another study made by Richard Wisemen from the University of Bristol showed that 78% of New Year resolutions fail, and that people who actually succeed have a few traits in common. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they set small measurable goals, like losing a pound a week (instead of just saying “I want to lose weight”), while women had a 10% higher success rate when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.
Another helpful thing may be to carry a reminder around your wrist. The resolution wrap bracelet is made by the same folks who brought us the peaceBOMB bracelet and is meant to help you achieve those goals you are about to set for the year to come.
Besides helping you reach your personal goal, these bracelet also help us move toward a common goal: a more peaceful world. One meter of bomb littered land is cleared for every peaceBOMB resolution wrap bracelet you buy. It also helps create a much needed source of income in war-ravaged areas of Laos.
Each resolution wrap bracelet is made with vintage silk string from France and features a hand cast tag. It comes wrapped around a resolution card which you or the person you give it to can write this day, month or year’s resolution. It’s never too late or early to make one!
