New year's resolutions are good in theory, but every year we embrace the new year, new you! mentality, only to find that come February, we've somehow gained 5 pounds instead of lost it... most likely from eating our feelings for failing at being more organized, giving back to the world, and going to sleep at a normal hour.

Its your first day back at work after the Christmas holidays.

New Year's Eve is notoriously a time to start afresh: stop smoking or drinking, lose a stone or take up running.
