The Psychology of New Year Resolutions

The Psychology of New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful break.  We will start Monday’s class with some activities around the Psychology of New Year Resolutions.  We will then look at articles that may relate to some of your own resolutions!  Be the coach and use your psychology expertise to give your classmates some good advice on how to keep their New Year Resolution!

Do you have any resolutions for the New Year? Have you written them down? Research by clinical psychologist Gail Matthews shows when you write down your goals, you are more likely to be successful.
