The commonest New Year’s resolutions are weight loss, exercise more, quitting smoking and better financial management. It is not a secret that most of these resolutions are doomed to fail, some even before January is over.The question is why? The most common reason given is lack of time, lack of willpower, work stress and many others but the actual reason is not paying attention to habit forming.
