Want To Keep Your New Year Resolution? Don’t Push Your Will Power

In a recent study published in the U.S. in Personality & Individual Differences, it was suggested that people with stronger willpower didn’t necessarily have superhuman strength when it came to avoiding temptation.

The study showed that those people considered to have strong willpower backed this up but not getting into situations where they would encounter temptation or distractions.

It wasn’t therefore due to working harder against their willpower but smarter, so next time you feel as if your New Year Resolutions are about to be broken, have a think about the situation you are in, or may find yourself in, to give you a fighting chance of keeping those promises you made.
