2017 New Years Resolutions
It’s that time of year where it’s out with the old and in with the new. As a new year looms fresh with new possibilities, we are filled with good intentions and resolve to do things during the next 12 months that will make our lives better. This year, we say, we’re going to stick to our resolutions!
Here are some fun facts about New Years Resolutions. The most popular may sound familiar, as they may be goals you’ve set (and broken) numerous times before.
Top 10 New Years Resolutions of 2016:
- Lose weight
- Get organized
- Spend less, save more
- Enjoy life to the fullest
- Stay fit and healthy
- Learn something exciting
- Quit smoking
- Help others in their dreams
- Fall in love
- Spend more time with family
What will 2017’s resolutions look like? Probably about the same…(this list is completely unchanged from 2014’s most popular resolutions). Of those who usually make New Years Resolutions—45% of all Americans—only about 8% of us end up keeping them. Almost half of us report having “infrequent success” at sticking with our resolutions, and 24% of us never succeed, yet keep trying over and over, every year, to reach our resolution goals.
This year, don’t sign that gym contract you know you won’t be using come mid-February. Instead, make a resolution that’s easy to keep and even more rewarding. Resolve to keep your home bug and pest free. You don’t even have to do anything—simply pick up the phone and call Pointe Pest Control. Our professional, highly-trained service experts will assess your home and surroundings, identify any problem areas, and use the safest, most effective treatments possible. Having regular treatments creates a protective barrier around your home, keeping your biggest investment free from any unwanted invaders and protected throughout the year.
Now that’s a New Years Resolution worth celebrating!
