What is the point of new year's resolutions? read details

if people really want to change something about their life, they should not need to use an entirely new year as an excuse. anybody can change at any point in their life if they just try. so why does the number of the year affect how they change? my question is, what is your opinion on new year's resolutions? I am open to everyone's opinions!

To fix any mistakes people have made throughout the year that is soon to pass and to change things about themselves that they want to. January is a good month to do this because you can start fresh as a better person in the new year.

You are right, people should be able to change whenever they want. However, during the ending of a year, spending time with the family and friends, and the knowing that we are all getting older every year should make you reflect on your actions done during your life and specially during the course of the year. People should reflect on that all the time, but the new year sets you in a mind set of change, and it also gives you comfort on knowing that you are not the only one making changes. I don't make new years resolutions to avoid disappointments, but I do try to reflect on my actions and choices of the whole year, just to keep myself on check.

I don't know. I honestly don't understand it. It feels like just another day. Some people are just like that I guess.
