January is always the most optimistic time of the year, as millions of people make resolutions to improve themselves. It will be great for home and also for your health and well-being.

Do you know some unbelievable facts about New Year's resolution? That's a reminder, too, that resolutions won't work if they are one-offs.

The year 2020 is nearly here and it's time to make some resolution.

A positive change helps you reach your goals faster because if you believe in yourself, and if you are making an effort to reach your goals, everything will flow. Anticipating challenges and identifying solutions is key to long-term success. You can go to a relaxing place, a historical sojourn or an adventurous journey, the experience would be absolutely worth it and add to your personality. After all, few will be bold enough to ask you about that 10 lbs. you said you'd lose this year, but who wouldn't want to know more about your goal to swim with a shark, run a marathon in North Korea, or cut a word out of your vocabulary entirely?

Set an achievable resolution. Whatever your resolution is, make it quantifiable so you can see your progress and celebrate when you reach that goal. What needs to happen is for you to get a real gut sense that these things are bad for you and hurting you. You may have a new dietary restriction, such as a food allergy or intolerance. If your mind is prepared, you can easily commit to your goals.

Break down your resolution.

It's clear that the typical way we go about making resolutions doesn't work for most people. This could include actions like ordering a healthier side dish such as a salad instead of fries with your meal, or having one serving of fruit with breakfast in the morning. Trust that you are on the right path and will successfully live out the plan you're working towards. No matter how good your intentions are when you establish them, it's tough to get changes to stick. Joining a group like a workout class or getting together with others who are quitting smoking can help with resolution success. It would be a good idea to unwind and pick up the books you had always wanted to read and add to your knowledge base. And most importantly, don't get discouraged if you feel like you're setting your goal too low.

If you want to limit candies, get them out of your house. Usually by February your resolution is abandoned and all but forgotten ... but even if you stick with your salad-and-running routine, how can you assess whether you're meeting those resolutions when there's no way to quantify it? They can still be hard, but that doesn't mean they have to make you miserable. Or you might learn you need to be kinder to yourself to boost your self-esteem. "Take a little bit more risk, and you'll find out more about yourself and what you're capable of doing".

Parents can open the door to a conversation with their children about resolutions by talking about their own reflections and hopes for the new year.

According to history.com and Wikipedia, the Babylonians reportedly made promises at the start of each new year to their gods to return borrowed objects and pay their debts.
