Why the Start of a New Year Can be a Daunting Prospect for Many of Us

BritChick Paris | Posted 31.12.2015 | UK Lifestyle
BritChick Paris

For at the end of the year there is a tendency for low self-esteemers like I used to be to look back with grey tinted glasses. 'I didn't go on that diet', 'I didn't get promoted', 'I didn't meet the one'. Social networks compound this by focussing on the glossy sides of life, making the gloomy crew feel even more useless, rubbish.

If You Make One New Year's Resolution This Year: Make It to Talk About Death

Naomi Barrow | Posted 30.12.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Naomi Barrow

Maybe death isn't something you really want to think about at the start of the New Year (let's face it, there are more fun things to think about). Perhaps you think you're not old enough to discuss it. Maybe it's not the most exciting of topics to chat about over a few pints, or maybe it is, but either way I challenge you to talk about it.

I have a confession to make - I hate the concept of New Year's Eve. After many years of pretending to enjoy it, I finally made peace with this but on the face of it seem that I am in the minority. The internet is full of posts and articles about how to have the perfect outfit, the perfect meal and the perfect night out, blah blah blah- no pressure there!

Do you say you're a "wine lover"? Or a "real ale enthusiast"? Is your profile pic you holding a cocktail? Is that how you want to present yourself to the outside world now you are aiming at a new and improved you? How about changing that bit to something else about yourself?

See, up until recently, I thought that this was success. Working long hours and enjoying the ever-shortening weekends, to live for the end of the month only to spend most of my money in the first few days and then wait all over again.

By now, we all know that murder is wrong, theft is seriously frowned upon, cheating is repugnant, and that we should be kind to our parents. The old religious based 10 commandments are now firmly rooted in our minds, so it's about time we had some new ones relevant to the more secular society we have become.

Cut the New Year Diet Crap - You Know It'll Never Last

If there's one thing any behavioural expert will tell you, it's this: it's much easier to stick to just one change in the long term. Twenty four changes? Not so much. And that's why all diets fail.
